Understanding Web Service Statuses

As illustrated in the screenshot below, there are some important fields in Oracle Enterprise Repository (OER) which can help you understand the 300+ web services available. We have received feedback that a short article explaining the different status fields (highlighted in yellow below) would be helpful.


To help show this simply and clearly, the following table can be used as a quick reference.

Field Values Available
Explanation Example
Search Results: Status
Registered
Shown only in the search results table, this is the status of the asset record in the OER system. All entries are automatically preregistered in the public instance of OER.
All
Overview Tab: Lifecycle
Active
The web service remains part of the standard product functionality.
Opportunity Service

Deprecated
The web service will be removed or replaced from the standard product functionality. Not recommended for use.
Sales Appointment Service (11.1.8)
Overview Tab: Compatibility
Supported - Backward Compatibility Assured
The web service is supported for use and its interfaces will be retained going forwards.
Opportunity Service

Supported - Backward Compatibility Not Assured
The web service is supported for use however its interfaces may change in a future release. Person Service (as in the screenshot)

Discoverable but Not Supported
The web service exists in this release, however it is not recommended for use (internal only).
Desktop Metadata Download Service
Taxonomy Tab: Keywords EXTERNAL This field/value indicates that the web service is intended for use with external systems. If the External keyword is missing then access to the web service is blocked by the Oracle Cloud network to avoid unsuitable use. Extract Actions Service (screenshot below)


Also for each operation of a web service there is another lifecycle column in the far right in the detail tab, however we currently assign values to the whole service and therefore it's not used and commonly null.
