It is time for the November quarterly update to Oracle Integration. Lilly the Oracle integration mascot is looking forward to it. We have lots of exciting new features and improvements to share with you. Note that testing is still underway for these features and, although unlikely, it is possible that some will not meet our quality standard and be deferred to a later release.
Currently tenant administrators get notified of OIC Gen 2 updates via notifications in the OCI console. Unfortunately most OIC users are not tenant admins and go straight to their OIC instance and so never see the notifications. To make sure users of OIC Gen 2 know when updates are coming we are adding update notifications into the OIC console.
We have also added an ability for customers to mark their Gen 2 instances for one of two update windows. You can read about it in Choosing Your Update Window.
We are making the following improvements for developers:
We have a lot of enhancements both to existing adapters and new adapters.
We are making it easier for you to track waht is happening at the business and the technical level.
To make OIC run faster and support the most demanding environments we have made these improvements.
There are a lot of new features coming in this quarterly release. If you want to flag instances for upgrade in the first wave then you need to do it by October 26. Keep an eye out in the OCI console for the update notice, in future you will also be able to view this from the OIC console. Enjoy the future!
