Create a B2B Document to Define Custom Definitions in Oracle Integration(OIC)

In this blog, we will be talking about how to create B2B Document to define custom definitions in Oracle Integration (OIC).

You can create a customized document definition that you select in the Document Definition field of the EDI Translate Action Wizard in an integration. Custom document definitions are useful for environments in which your trading partner requires specific customizations to satisfy business requirements.

  1. From the left navigation pane on the Oracle Integration home page, select B2B > B2B Documents.
  2. Click Create.
  3. Enter the following details to create a new B2B document definition.





Enter a document name.


This field is automatically populated with the document name. You can manually change this value.


Enter an optional description of the customization details for this document.

Document Standard

EDI X12 is automatically selected for use and cannot be deselected.

Document Version

Select the document version.

Document Type

Select the document type.


4. Click Create.

The details page for your new B2B document is displayed. The Document Schema field shows Standard as the schema type by default


5. Click Customize to customize the standard schema to satisfy your business requirements. If you had previously created custom schemas, they are also displayed for selection in the dropdown list. If you want, you can select those schemas to create further customizations.

The Clone Standard Schema dialog is displayed.

6. Enter a name and optional description for your custom schema.

7. Click Clone.

This action creates a copy of the standard EDI X12 schema for you to use as a baseline to customize


8. Find the element you want to customize, and select View Details. For this example, the CUR02 currency code element (part of the CUR segment) is selected.


9. Edit properties as necessary for your business environment. 

10. Click Add a New Code List (if the element does not already have a code list defined).

11. Add a currency code name and optional description, and click x to save your updates.

12. Add more, as necessary for your business requirements. For this example, EUR (for the Euro currency) and USD (for US dollars) currency codes are added.


13. When complete, click X in the upper right corner to close the dialog and save your changes.

  The segment (CUR) and the element (CUR02) that you customized to deviate from the standard schema are identified by a round dot


14. Click Save. Return to the B2B document's details page and click Save to associate the customized schema to the document

15. You can use this customized schema in your integration flow for B2B Translate action.
