You Asked

Is it possible extract the last run time of a function run on a menu from the Oracle database?

and we said...

Only if you store that artefact yourself.

If it just to see if that function is NOT being run, you could turn on auditing for that function (assuming it lives in the database), but be aware that we would then be tracking *every* execution of it.

There are various V$ views that might let you get a (rough) approximation, see v$sql and v$db_object_cache, but there are no guarantees in there.

Is this an EBS question?

Reviewer: John Keymer

I might be wrong, however the wording of this question sounds like it might be E-Business Suite related, whereby you have "functions" (forms/web pages etc, not database functions) attached to a menu.

iif that is the case - then providing the "Sign-On:Audit Level" profile value is set to "FORM", this information is available in the table fnd_login_resp_forms for Forms accesses only.
