Closer look at the SOA 12c Feature: Oracle Managed File Transfer

The
rapid growth of cloud-based applications in the enterprise, combined with
organizations' desire to integrate applications with mobile technologies, is
dramatically increasing application integration complexity. To meet this
challenge, Oracle introduced 
Oracle
SOA Suite 12c
,
the latest version of the industry's most complete and unified application
integration and SOA solution. With simplified cloud, mobile, on-premises, and
Internet of Things (IoT) integration capabilities, all within a single
platform, Oracle SOA Suite 12c helps organizations speed time to
integration, improve productivity, and lower TCO.

To extend its B2B
solution capabilities with Oracle SOA Suite 12c, Oracle unveiled 
Oracle
Managed File Transfer
, an integrated solution that enables
organizations to virtually eliminate file transfer complexities. This allows
customers to load data securely into 
Oracle Cloud applications as well as third-party cloud or
partner applications.


Oracle Managed File Transfer
(Oracle MFT) enables secure file exchange and management with internal
departments and external partners. It protects against inadvertent access to unsecured
files at every step in the end-to-end transfer of files. It is easy to use
especially for non technical staff so you can leverage more resources to manage
the transfer of files. The extensive reporting capabilities allow you to get
quick status of a file transfer and resubmit it as required. You can protect
data in your DMZ by using the SSH/FTP reverse proxy.

Oracle Managed File
Transfer can help integrate applications by transferring files between them in
complex use case patterns.

Standalone: Transferring files on its own using
embedded FTP and sFTP servers and the file systems to which it has access.

SOA Integration:
a SOA application
can be the source or target of a transfer. A SOA application can also be the
common endpoint for the target of one transfer and the source of another.

B2B Integration:
B2B application can
be the source or target of a transfer. A B2B application can also be the common
endpoint for the target of one transfer and the source of another.

Healthcare Integration:  Healthcare
application can be the source or target of a transfer. A Healthcare application
can also be the common endpoint for the target of one transfer and the source
of another.

Oracle Service Bus (OSB) integration: OMT can
integrate with Oracle Service Bus web service interfaces. OSB interface can be the source or target of a
transfer. An Oracle Service Bus interface can also be the common endpoint for
the target of one transfer and the source of another.

Hybrid Integration: can be one
participant in a web of data transfers that includes multiple application
types.

Oracle Managed File Transfers has four user roles: file handlers,
designers, monitors, and administrators.

File Handlers:

- Copy files to file transfer staging areas, which are
called sources.

- Retrieve files from file transfer destinations, which are
called targets.

Designers:

- Create, read,
update and delete file transfer sources.

- Create, read,
update and delete file transfer targets.

- Create, read,
update and delete transfers, which link sources and targets in complete file
delivery flows.

- Deploy and test transfers.

Monitors:

- Use the Dashboard
and reports to ensure that transfer instances are successful.

- Pause and resume
lengthy transfers.

- Troubleshoot
errors and resubmit transfers.

- View artifact
deployment details and history.

- View artifact
dependence relationships.

- Enable and
disable sources, targets, and transfers.

- Undeploy sources,
targets, and transfers.

- Start and stop
embedded FTP and sFTP servers.

Administrators:

- All file handler
tasks

- All designer
tasks

- All monitor tasks

- Add other users
and determine their roles

- Configure user
directory permissions

- Configure the
Oracle Managed File Transfer server

- Configure
embedded FTP and sFTP servers, including security

- Configure B2B and
Healthcare domains

- Back up and
restore the Oracle Managed File Transfer configuration

- Purge transferred
files and instance data

- Archive and
restore instance data and payloads

- Import and export
metadata
