Prakash Masand
Senior Principal Product Manager

Lilly the Oracle Integration mascot is excited to announce the cool new features & capabilities of the upcoming Oracle Integration February 2021 release. In this blog, Lilly will be specifically focusing on the third-party application adapters' improvements in the Oracle Integration.

Oracle Integration continues to focus on adding and enriching the third-party application adapters, thereby enabling customers to meet wider business use cases in their application ecosystem. In February 2021 Oracle Integration has done significant improvements in the third-party application adapters.

Let's now dive into the details of third-party application adapters.

Salesforce Commerce Cloud Adapter

The Salesforce Commerce Cloud Adapter is the newest addition to the E-commerce segment of adapters and shall enable Oracle Integration customers to connect and offer connectivity with the Salesforce commerce cloud application. In the stated release Salesforce Commerce Cloud Adapter shall support outbound invoke to execute the Data APIs enabling Integration developer to perform Create or Update, Delete, and Query operations on the Salesforce Commerce Cloud exposed business resources. For example, you can fetch records in Salesforce Commerce Cloud.

The Salesforce Commerce Cloud Adapter connection page requires two sets of information to establish a connection with the Salesforce Commerce Cloud environment. Firstly, you would need to enter the host URL in the following format: https://<myinstance>/s/-/ or https://<myinstance>/s/{site-id}/. Secondly, you would need to enter the API version to use so that adapter can connect to the appropriate endpoint. On the security/credentials front, you would need to provide a client id and secret, you can get those by following the instructions mentioned in the Salesforce Commerce Cloud documentation.

Now on building integration flows with Salesforce Commerce Cloud, the adapter enriches the integration developer experience by grouping the Salesforce Commerce Cloud business resources by standard objects, custom objects, and operations. The Salesforce Commerce Cloud Adapter provides support for the custom objects as well. The configuration of invoke endpoint can be done graphically by selecting the options as prompted by the adapter through the wizard interface. This can be easily accomplished by following three steps viz. 1) Configure Action Type 2) Configure Operation 3) Verify Configuration in Summary.

Marketo Adapter Bulk Extract Support

The Marketo Adapter is a part of the CRM/CX adapters. The Marketo Adapter enables the user to create an integration with the Marketo application in Oracle Integration. Previously, the Marketo Adapter supports performing a bulk import to import bulk records into Marketo. With the update in the February release, the Marketo Adapter now supports performing a bulk extract to get records out of Marketo. As an example, you can extract a large volume of Leads records from Marketo and write the records to a file for future use. In the stated scenario, we can have a scheduled flow that periodically submits the export job request to the Marketo server, gets the records, runs in a continuous loop until the job is completed and finally writes the records to file. Similarly, we can extract a large volume of records for Program Members and Activities. So let's start with a quick tour of the new wizard interface.

And provides trigger (inbound) connection support for performing various types of actions against events such as Delivery Profile create/update/delete from the DeliveryProfiles module.

SAP SuccessFactors Adapter Compound Employee API Support

The SAP SuccessFactors Adapter helps you to connect and create an integration with the SAP SuccessFactors application. With the update in the February release, the SAP SuccessFactors Adapter extends the capabilities and provides support for the Compound Employee application programming interface (API). The SAP SuccessFactors Compound Employee API service is a SOAP web service and it is used to extract employee data from SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central.

Workday Adapter

The Workday Adapter enables you to create an integration with Workday in Oracle Integration. With the update in the February release, the Workday Integration System User (ISU) doesn’t need access to the Security Configuration and Security Activation domain policies to configure the Workday webservices in the Workday Adapter. Now there are no mandatory policies required to access Web Services Design time for the Workday Adapter.

This concludes the walk-through of new rich features capabilities that are added in the third-party application adapters for the Oracle Integration February 2021 release. I hope you are excited to learn about the new capabilities and are eagerly waiting to see them on your instance and reap the value from them in your integration processes.
