Run OIC scheduled integration using REST by Ankur Jain

Oracle Integration allows you to build the scheduled integration that can run on the set frequency such as once in a day, twice in a day, once in a week, so and so forth. Sometimes, there is a requirement to run OIC scheduled integration by a third-party application based on some event. The scheduled integration that is developed may have a scheduled parameter or not and if the scheduled integration is having the scheduled parameter, then also the parameter value needs to pass by a third-party application in case it is called by someone. Let’s consider a scenario where you have developed one scheduled integration that takes one parameter with name last-date-time which is used to get the incremental data from the source application and push it to the target application. You have already scheduled this integration which runs on its set frequency. But, In case of any error or someone wants to run it from the back date-time, then what’s the solution. There are a couple of solutions, but the best solution is to use the scheduled REST API which can hit the scheduled integration on-demand. Oracle Integration has its own scheduled REST API which can be used to kick off the scheduled integration outside the OIC. Click here to know about the scheduled REST API. The following is the sample payload that can be passed in the request body of the scheduled REST API: Read the complete article here.

Integrate ICS with a third party OAuth Protected REST service using the generic REST adapter – Part 2 by Anuj Kaushal

In the first part of the series, we provided a brief introduction of oauth and the various security policies available within ICS. We also had a closer look at OAuth Custom Two Legged Flow. In this post, we will look at OAuth Custom Three Legged Flow. The final part in this series provides the sample custom OAuth Security configuration for some of the popular services. Before we delve into custom 3-legged security policy, it is important to understand the steps performed as part of OAuth Authorization code credentials flow: Step 1: User specifies the authorization request URI. The user is redirected via the user-agent (browser) to the authorization URI. Step 2: Resource owner logs in to authenticate and provides consent to the client application to access its resources. Step 3: The authorization server sends a callback request to the client application and sends the authorization code. Step 4: The client application extracts the authorization code from the request and uses it to send another request to the authorization server to get an access token. Read the complete article here.

Help! I can’t find my OIC instances anymore by Simone Geib

  This is something I mainly hear from customers whose OIC instances have just been upgraded to Gen 2, and they don’t have much experience with the OCI console yet. The remedy is pretty simple though, once you know what to pay attention to. After logging into your OCI console, using a URL similar to this - depending on your home region - https://console.us-ashburn-1.oraclecloud.com/, select Developer Services -> Application -> Integration in the new simplified OCI menu (see Announcing Improved Navigation for the OCI Console). If your OIC instances are in your selected region and in the root compartment, you will see them right away. If that is not the case, check the selected region on the top right: Your home region may be Ashburn, but some of your instances may be in Phoenix or Toronto. This is not something you had to pay attention to in Gen 1, but in the OCI console, you will only see instances in the selected region. Select the correct region from the drop-down list: Read the complete article here.

Heathrow A Customer Success Story by Flexagon & Capgemini

In 2020, Heathrow commenced a business and technology transformation which included a move to the cloud. Among other changes, this involved a move from Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) hosted in a private cloud to Oracle Cloud ERP and the use of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and Platform services such as Integration and Database. The team had been using labor-intensive manual processes to manage their infrastructure, migration of code, configurations, and other changes across environments. Heathrow identified an opportunity to make their processes more efficient. They knew there had to be an easier and more modern way to manage changes across their test and production environments and declared that automation would be part of their transformation and shift to the cloud. They wanted automated deployment and management of infrastructure, code, and configurations while establishing repeatable processes, including the ability to be more responsive to business needs.

Extend Process Automation UI Components to JET-Based Applications by Arvind Venugopal, Rameshkumar

With the May release, Process UI snippets are now available as Oracle JET (JavaScript Extension Toolkit) composite components for embedding in self-service applications, services, or portals. A JET composite component, similar to a standard web component, allows you to define and use custom DOM (Document Object Model) elements. Using these components, you can easily incorporate standalone Process UI modules into multiple JET-based applications. Let’s look at how you can extend the Process UI, employing composite components, in the following scenarios. Import a Process Composite Component into Visual Builder Embed a Process Composite Component in a Web Application Import a Process Composite Component into Visual Builder You can make Process UI composite components available in Oracle Visual Builder and use these components, along with other Visual Builder components, to create custom enterprise, web, or mobile applications. Use the procedure detailed here to make a Process composite component available in Oracle Visual Builder. In this example, we’ll add the Task List component into Visual Builder.

Invoking Process Applications with Anonymous Users from VB Apps with Oracle Integration by Arvind Venugopal, Shay Shmeltzer, and Nathan Angstadt

  In this blog, we will setup a Visual Builder Application with Oracle Integration and use Process behind the scenes. For this particular use case, we will show how to build VB Applications that allow access by Anonymous users to initiate Process Applications. A common use case would be where the Web App is used by many external users where you don’t want to setup secure identities for each user, however you still want to secure the Process Apps. Let’s explore some options for this use case. A couple of steps to complete before exploring the various security options: First, setup a Process Application with a Message Start event. A simple example is provided below. Then, In VB have a form with an action that connects to the Process (you will need to setup the VB app to work with the Process App as well). Example using Process Action is shown below. For the options mentioned below, you will need to use the REST action instead. Read the complete article here.

Working Around not Having Complex Gateway by Jan Kettenis

  In this article I describe how you can work around not having the Complex Gateway in OIC Structured Process. I will end with what I believe to be the best work around with respect to support for refactoring. The Complex Gateway in BPMN 2.0 is one of the least used features of BPMN. However, when you find a use case for it also may find that there is no alternative way to model it, or not an easy one. The challenge being that in case of parallel flows (be it via Parallel or Inclusive Gateway) the token must move to the merge gateway for each individual flow before it can move further. One typical use case that I have ran into a couple of times is the one where at a specific point in the process there is more than one way to do something, and either one of them might happen after which the process can move on to the next activity. In case there are only two ways, most of the times you can model this by adding an interrupting Boundary Message or Timer Catch event to the activities.

OSB 12c SOAP webservice for temperature conversion i.e. Celsius to Fahrenheit and vice versa by Pranav Davar

This tutorial is intended for the audience who are completely new to OSB and want to try a simple hello world kind of application. Instead of sending and receiving Hello World!. We will be using simple temperature conversion i.e. from Celsius to Fahrenheit and vice versa. We will be using simple Xquery to do all conversion and logic. High Level: In this case, our OSB component will contain 2 parts proxy service and pipeline. Proxy service will expose SOAP endpoint to the client application and pipeline will perform various operations on input payload. Since this is just a Hello World application, we will not be using business services. XQuery will be used to implement mathematical logic and conditional logic. Service will take temperature as input and will perform either Fahrenheit to Celsius (FtoC) or Celsius to Fahrenheit (CtoF) temperature conversion. If the conversion type is invalid, then the service will return a failure status. Mathematical Calculations: Let temperature in Fahrenheit be X℉ and temperature in Celsius be Y℃.

Using UN/EDIFACT for B2B Transactions by Arvind Venugopal, and Sunil Apte

With the May release, we have added support for EDIFACT data format for B2B with Oracle Integration. UN/EDIFACT is a standard and format for electronic business communications. It is controlled and maintained by a committee called, UNECE, that is a body formed by the United Nations. Now you will be able to design and run EDIFACT transactions with the Cloud Platform. Here are the key steps that allow you to do this: First step is that you will now be able to design EDIFACT formatted schemas from within the B2B Design time experience in 'B2B Schemas' Once the schema is created you will be able to personalize and customize the named instance of this schema to adhere to the trading partner specifications. Once you have the schemas created you will be able to use them to create B2B documents. Now, you don't need a custom schema for B2B documents in case you are using standard schemas. In which case, you can go directly to create the B2B document. Read the complete article here.

With the May release of Oracle Integration, we have introduced the ability to setup Transport Integrations within the Trading Partner Management design time experience. With this enhancement, we have also automated the creation of the base B2B integration. This setup enables a B2B user to onboard Trading Partners on the Cloud platform without requiring to configure the Trading Partner setup via Integrations. In this blog, we will see how to achieve this. First, we will review a couple of the prerequisites to help enable this. First, the backend Application Integration will have to be created for the transactions you want to process in and out from the respective app you are using. You will be able use the supported Application or technical adapters to create the connection to the app and then create the integration that houses the business logic as well as the mapping. You can find more information on the supported adapters here. Second, before going to the Trading Partner screens you can create the Transport Connection for AS2 or FTP via the connections page as well as the document that you want to process via the Documents screen.

Using an Event Based Pattern with Oracle Integration by Michael Meiner

If you are using Visual Builder's Business Objects (BO) as a source of data for your Visual Builder user interface, caching their content on the client side can help improve your app performance. The latest version of Visual Builder provides a simple declarative way to control caching settings for your BOs. Caching Considerations There are a couple of points to consider before you implement caching though: If your data is frequently changing, you might not want to cache it on the client as the cached data might be out of date when the user access it. For example, we wouldn't suggest caching the current inventory for each product in your warehouse, as this will change with every new order placed. The list of product names, however, might be data that you can cache assuming your products catalog changes at most once a day. Visual Builder lets you define the length of time that the data is cached - which should help you tune this for each piece of data.

How to Generate Business Object Mapping File in HCM One of the key requirements to load data using OIC for HDL is that you need the integration mapping file (nxsd file) of the relevant business object along with a sample .dat file. Now if you go to the HCM environment and View Business Objects, the default setting only provides you the sample template file (.dat file) but it does not give you the relevant integration mapping file i.e. nxsd file.

Five key Oracle Integration lessons from handling billions of messages monthly by Amit Saxena

  Automating end-to-end enterprise business processes involves connecting multiple software-as-a-service (SaaS), on-premises, and custom applications. One of the most innovative things you can do with your enterprise applications is to integrate them into end-to-end business processes, such as recruit-to-retire, requisition-to-receipt, and lead-to-invoice. When automating processes across multiple event-based services and data sources, you want the ability to adjust and evolve those interactions on the fly. Many, varied integration patterns pose a complex challenge to traditional integration strategies. To keep pace, our customers need to enable self-service, capitalize on existing APIs, and implement a hybrid integration platform. Watch Oracle Integration Architecture Principles to see for yourself how we can help your connected business strategy support modern integration and automation best practices.

OIC May 21 Release – B2B support for UN EDIFACT Part 1 by Niall Commiskey

The May 21 release of OIC brings lots of new features to B2B. This post will focus on the new UN EDIFACT support, but will also detail our new auto-generation of - send/receive pre-processor integrations - feature. The usual caveat from me at the outset - I am not an EDI/EDIFACT expert - many folks tasked with creating such integrations are also not, so this is for you! Version 1 of B2B in OIC supported X12, now we are also providing UN EDIFACT support. So what is the difference between the 2, apart from the fact that the latter is mainly used in Europe? Apparently X12 has made inroads into the healthcare market (HIPAA), whereas UN EDIFACT has not. Both standards are used in areas such as supply chain, government etc. This post begins with an introduction to the format of an order in UN EDIFACT, it is rather pedestrian, if fact probably boring for most of you, who are at home in EDI. I go through the order document line for line, this I am mainly doing for my own benefit, so that I actually understand the values being sent. The post continues with a short introduction to the transport protocol I will use, AS2. Finally, we get to the section that covers the implementation of a simple UN EDIFACT orders based B2B transaction in OIC. Read the complete article here.

May 2021 Technology Improvements in Adapters by Michael Meiner

In the May 2021 release, we are making the following updates to our Database adapters and connectivity agent: MS SQL adapter: support for Azure SQL My SQL adapter: support for MySQL version 8 Connectivity agent: support for JDK 11 Microsoft SQL on Azure Many of our customers need to integrate with Microsoft Azure SQL. In this release, you can leverage the same SQL Server adapter that is available in OIC, and connect to Azure SQL. You will set up a connectivity agent, and then use the connections page to fill in the Azure SQL host and port, database name and the credentials. Once you configure the connection, you can use this connection in an integration flow in exactly the same way as SQL Server on-premise. Note that SQL on Azure can be installed in a private network, where the ports are not open to the internet. For such a setup, the OIC connectivity agent needs to be installed on an Azure VM in the same subnet. This is so the agent will be able to reach the Azure SQL instance. If SQL on Azure is configured with open ports, then the connectivity agent can be installed anywhere (including on Oracle Cloud). We will be adding more options for security policies in an upcoming release. Read the complete article here.

May 2021 Oracle Integration Pre-built Recipes by Michael Meiner

What is a Recipe? When cooking a meal, you often use a recipe. You don't need to start from scratch. The recipe gives you the ingredients and amounts to cook your meal. Similarly, when using OIC recipes, we give you the "ingredients". You start  with one of more pre-assembled solutions that bundle all the resources required by the integrations, such as the connections and lookups, into one package. Use a recipe to quickly get started cooking your meal (or in our case, building your integration). We continue to add pre-built recipes to our repository. In the May 2021 release, here are some of the recipes we are adding: Retrieve and place files to/from NetSuite File cabinet Create, Update and Delete ServiceNow Incidents Get feeds or posts from Facebook Create channels and push notifications to Slack Send a Docusign envelope and get status So How Do I Use A Recipe? Well, I'm glad you asked. It's actually quite simple. Just log into your OIC console and on the Home Page you will see the recipes.

May 2021 Oracle Integration Update by Antony Reynolds

It is time for the May quarterly update to Oracle Integration. With Spring in the air we are excited to share all our exciting new features and improvements. 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. Announcements & Update Windows Currently tenant administrators get notified of OIC Gen 2 updates via notifications in the OCI console. OIC Gen 2 administrators can also see the same update notice in the OIC console, so watch out for the date of your update. Remember, you can also mark your Gen 2 instance for update in either the first or second update window, as explained in Choose Your Update Window. If you previously tagged your instance, then there is no need to tag it again. If it is not yet tagged for window 1, then the deadline for tagging for May is 14 April. Tags added after this date will take effect for the August release. Developer Productivity Enhancements We are making the following improvements for developers: Configurator Enhancement Allow replacing a connection within a package if connection is used by one of more inactive Integrations Move Integration Test UI from swagger to OpenAPI OpenAPI allows us to improve the test UI experience as it provides more information about the integration to be called.

OIC: Somewhat "Hidden" Feature: Reusable Subprocess by Jan Kettenis

This blog article describes how to configure input and output parameters for Reusable Sub-processes (BPMN Call Activity) in OIC Structured Process It's more than once that I have see that OIC Process developers are not using the Reusable Subprocess in Structured Process, simply because they are not aware that you can pass on arguments to the Start event and from the End event, like you can for processes that start and end with Message Events. I will not discuss the benefits of and when to use a Reusable Subprocess, I will save that for a blog posting soon to come. The thing is, the parameters are somewhat hidden. You create a Reusable Sub-process by creating a process with a None Start and None End event, as in the picture below. To add parameters to both events you can do it like this: Click on the Start Event. From the hamburger menu choose Open Properties. This will show you the propertie of the Start Event, where (probably to your surprise) you cannot find the input parameters. With the Properties tab of the Start Event still shown, click anywhere on the process canvas as long as it is not another component (event, activity, flow, gateway). Ta-da!!

Extend Oracle application cloud approvals on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure by Mani Krishnan

  Introduction Oracle Fusion SaaS applications, such as HCM and ERP, provide the ability to approve certain transaction before they are committed. The rules behind these approvals are exposed to customers through Transaction Console or BPM worklist applications. If necessary, customers can modify conditions of approval rules or add new rules to the rulesets for a transaction. Customers can also configure various aspects of approvals, such as the approval groups, approval exceptions and notifications. Approval capabilities in Oracle Cloud Applications, on purpose, do not include complex BPM capabilities. For example, approval rules can use data accessible within the SaaS application, but are not allowed to an external API to fetch data from another application. They also do not permit complex logic such as iteration. Also note that certain SaaS applications, for example, Oracle Sales Cloud, do permit more complex BPM processes through application composer. Refer to product-specific documentation for more information. Occasionally, customers might need to externalize approval processes, either because of the complexity of the desired approval processes or because of other reasons such as dependency on external approvers who cannot be granted access to customers’ SaaS applications.

OIC Process Correlation: Take Good Care of Your Properties by Jan Kettenis

The other day we had an issue with correlating process instances which turned out to be caused by some "mistake" we made. Took quite some time to figure it out so I thought I share it with you, hoping it can safe you some time. First I will explain what correlation is about (you may want to check out a much more elaborate blog article on how to use it in OIC-Process by Martien van den Akker, or another one from Anthony Reynolds explaining the concept in the context of BPEL). Correlation is in OIC-Process not really different from what it is in Oracle BPM Suite so if you already know that or when you have done it before in OIC you can skip the next paragraph. When one process instance is calling another one and of the latter there may be multiple instances, you need a way to make sure the second process calls back the right instance of the first process. That is done by making that the instance to call can uniquely be identified, or "correlated" as it is called. In many cases correlation is out-of-the-box, like for synchronous calls or asynchrounous calls using WS-Addressing. When there is no out-of-the-box correlation, you need to configure it explicitly using what is called "message-based correlation". That means that instances are correlated using a key (value or combination of values) which is (part of) the message that is send from one instance to the other. In OIC that key is called (not surprisingly) the "correlation key" (same as "correlation set" in BPEL). The correlation key has one or more "properties" for which the (combination of) values must be unique in such a way that at any time there cannot be two or more instance flows of the calling process using the same correlation key value(s).

Process Automation with Process Cloud Service (PCS) – Part 1 by Daniel Teixeira

Earlier in my career I worked extensively with a Business Process Management (BPM) software called Cordys (meanwhile acquired by OpenText). Had a couple of trainings on BEA Aqualogic BPM Suite (now Oracle). Later on, while working for TIBCO I had several trainings and a bit of project experience with their BPM solution. Most of the BPM concepts are familiar to me, but over the years they became quite rusty So this is a good time to dive a bit more into a component of the Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC). I am talking about the Process Cloud Service (PCS), and this will be a series of posts dedicated to exploring PCS capabilities! Somehow BPM seems to be out of use nowadays and Process Automation became the trendy designation! The Concepts Processes are based on BPM Notation (BPMN) – https://www.bpmn.org/ “A standard Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) will provide businesses with the capability of understanding their internal business procedures in a graphical notation and will give organizations the ability to communicate these procedures in a standard manner. “ The Use Case In the upcoming posts I will work out a very simple, yet relatable, use case. A process to manage an employee vacation request . Granted, if you are self employed this makes no sense, but if you work for a company with a couple hundred or thousands of employees, then the need to manage this process becomes obvious. Departments/Teams internal planning may require a process to manage this, and on top of that, they may have some business rules that need to be implemented ( example: an entire team cannot take vacations at the same time).

Piloting Your Digital Transformation Journey through Modernization by Ravi Pinto

As organizations evaluate Digital Transformation and consequently, SOA Modernization as part of that exercise, my colleague, Perren Walker, has put together some thoughts that I wanted to share with you. He has penned them in context the aerospace industry. I am sure you will glean some pearls of wisdom here. What does aerospace have to teach us about cost-effective IT modernization? In my mind, there are many similarities between aerospace platforms and IT systems, not the least both are capital intensive and can experience rapid technological obsolescence. Yet, Boeing has flown an airplane from 1955, some 66 years, and it is expected to fly beyond 2050. How has Boeing been able to continuously modernize an aircraft with such longevity, while remaining a state-of-the-art platform and the best economic choice?  We’ve selected Boeing’s avionics platform because Oracle SOA Suite customers are looking to achieve similar business returns with their Integration investments. When we look closely, there are 4 parallels between Boeing’s aircraft and Oracle SOA Suite customers, who are driving platform modernization: An extensible, re-configurable architecture With SOA Suite containerization[1], customers can easily configure SOA Suite’s architecture to easily run in the cloud, on-premise or in a hybrid configuration.  This protects your investment in existing integrations, while SOA modernization can take place with Oracle Integration.

Accessing Object Storage from Oracle Integration by Ankur Jain

The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) offers a rich set of services and Object Storage is one of the important services that can be used to store a wide variety of objects of any content type such as videos, images, documents, and so on. Depending on the bucket you created in Object Storage, you can access it from OCI or the public internet. In the previous few other posts, you may have seen the usage of an FTP adapter to read/write files which is a traditional approach to store files. So as the digitization of data is on-demand, Object Storage is in high demand to store the data and access it from anywhere. You can automate your different document repositories to store data in the Object Storage using the Oracle Integration Cloud to make it a centralized repository. You would be requiring few things before you access the Object Storage from the Oracle Integration and store your objects.

Subscribing to Fusion Custom Business Events in OIC by Kishore Katta

Integration with all Oracle Fusion based Cloud services - like Oracle Financials Cloud , Oracle SCM Cloud, Oracle Engagement Cloud each service publishes Business Events wherein Oracle Integration can subscribe. Events is a great way to broadcast information to downstream systems for Real Time Synchronization ERP cloud publishes 2 types of events. In this blog we will see how Custom Business Events can be published in ERP cloud and subscribe in OIC Standard Business Events Custom Business Events Whenever we create a new custom object in Oracle ERP Cloud using Oracle Application Composer,  custom business events can be published explicitly. Once published, these business events can be subscribed from Oracle Integration (OIC). Business Events  are visible for selection when configuring the Oracle ERP Cloud Adapter in OIC as a trigger connection in the Adapter Endpoint Configuration Wizard. For each Custom parent Object, OIC supports 3 Standard Events (Create, update, and delete ). Any operations on child custom objects generate update events for the parent custom objects. When  a record is created, OIC is notified with record detail information through event handler framework on subscription to any related events. Read the complete article here.

Beating OIC’s FTP File Limits by Phil Wilkins

OIC has for some time now provided an FTP adaptor and more recently included a full FTP server capability. But both have limits on the file size and capacity. The file constraints (1GB for a file and 500GB for the FTP server) shouldn’t be an issue for day to day activities. But OIC is often used to support SaaS Financials and other cloud solutions which do have monthly process cycles which can generate significant data volumes, for example, payroll data. The question is how to handle such data with such constraints? Data Integration? There is a school of thought that points to the possibility when handling such large data volumes we should consider using Data Integration rather than a more event-centric integration tool. Personally, I think there is a lot of validity in the argument, and anyone dealing with such bulky data activities should review and question if it is a better answer. That said, there are cases where it does stand-up. For example: If an organization is transitioning to a more event-driven or at least micro-batch model, you have to start the transition somewhere, but trying to line up changes everywhere can be problematic, so we have to start somewhere. Building an integration process so you have an event model developed, but in the interim, you need to take that bulk mechanism and convert it to a small stream of events. You may be working with a bulk data extract and only need a small subset of the data provided, it won’t help if the data is also represented using a verbose notation such as XML. Other Approaches How to overcome the constraint? Oracle databases aren’t so constrained, and SQLLoader can provide an easy means to ingest the data into a staging table. The benefit of this is: if you’re only needing a subset of the data you can pull just those columns from the table. the bulk of the use of XML to be self-describing can be shed through using the DB schema as being more prescriptive.

How to define a Repeating Global Variable by Jorge Herreria

Summary This blog addresses the following use case:  "In my OIC Orchestration, when I define a Global variable based on a repeating element (aka unbounded), the global variable is not repeating; I cannot add/append to it" The nutshell solution: Choose the parent element when defining the global variable Details Why the variable is not repeating? Because of XML Rules: When a global variable is defined, internally it is defining a reference to a XML Document. Any XML Document must have a single instance root element; in other words it cannot be a collection of root elements, even if they have the same element name. How Do I Solve my requirement? When defining the Variable, choose the parent element of the unbounded element (repeating). That way the  XML Document root element will be the parent element, and one of its children will be the unbounded element To reference the variable use the location path (xpath) to the unbounded element. Example Defining vErrors with the intent to use errorDetails repeating element. Read the complete article here.

Business Process Management

Process Automation with Process Cloud Service (PCS) – Part 1 by Daniel Teixeira

  Earlier in my career I worked extensively with a Business Process Management (BPM) software called Cordys (meanwhile acquired by OpenText). Had a couple of trainings on BEA Aqualogic BPM Suite (now Oracle). Later on, while working for TIBCO I had several trainings and a bit of project experience with their BPM solution. Most of the BPM concepts are familiar to me, but over the years they became quite rusty So this is a good time to dive a bit more into a component of the Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC). I am talking about the Process Cloud Service (PCS), and this will be a series of posts dedicated to exploring PCS capabilities! Somehow BPM seems to be out of use nowadays and Process Automation became the trendy designation! The Concepts Processes are based on BPM Notation (BPMN) – https://www.bpmn.org/ “A standard Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) will provide businesses with the capability of understanding their internal business procedures in a graphical notation and will give organizations the ability to communicate these procedures in a standard manner. “ The Use Case In the upcoming posts I will work out a very simple, yet relatable, use case. A process to manage an employee vacation request. Granted, if you are self employed this makes no sense, but if you work for a company with a couple hundred or thousands of employees, then the need to manage this process becomes obvious. Departments/Teams internal planning may require a process to manage this, and on top of that, they may have some business rules that need to be implemented ( example: an entire team cannot take vacations at the same time). Create the Process I choose to Create an Application. That will give us a blank canvas to create everything from scratch. There are several QuickStarts, which are ready to run sample Processes. In this post I will build the entire process step by step. Read the complete article here.

Convert from Schedule to REST based integration by Vijay Kendai

This blog is for a new feature coming out in Oracle Integration (OIC) February 2021 release. Currently in Orchestration, after a trigger has been added, the user does not have the ability to replace it with another trigger. The user essentially has to re-create the integration to achieve this. With this feature, users will be provided with the ability to replace a trigger with minimal impact and without having the need to re-construct various actions in the canvas. After conversion, users will be provided with appropriate warnings and errors to take any corrective action needed, to bring the integration to a configured state. What is covered ? In the first phase, only scheduled orchestrations will be addressed. Schedule trigger will be allowed for replacement only with a REST trigger. What is not covered ? Replacing schedule in Scheduled orchestrations with REST trigger having multiple verbs Replacing trigger in App driven orchestrations Details The following section describes in detail how a schedule can be converted to a REST trigger. On clicking the schedule node, user will be provided with a menu option under more actions to convert to a REST based trigger as shown below. Read the complete article here.

Reactivate All Integrations Together that Use the Same Connection by Shubham Agrawal

This blog is for a new feature coming out in Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) February 2021 release. This blog covers the issue of applying the changed connection properties to the active integrations. A connection can be used by multiple integration. If connection is updated then Active integrations don't reflect until they are re-activated. After updating the connection, user currently has to manually go to each integration and re-activate to reflect the updated connection. As an Oracle Integration Cloud user after connection update, user should be able to reactivate all the active integration which are using the same connection. What does it cover Users can reactivate the associated integrations for the connection they are trying to update. User only need to reactivate the integrations if they change connection properties, it does not apply if only primary info is changed, as that would not impact the running integrations. Now, we can simply reactivate all the associated integrations with a single click, and it will restore the active integrations to its original state (like retain if tracing need to be enabled).

OIC & OCI API Gateway Integration: Quick and Easy by Varinder Kaur

This blog is for a new feature coming out in Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) February 2021 release. If you are interested in OCI API Gateway Integration, then read this blog as it covers the steps needed to seamlessly integrate with API Gateway. The API Gateway service enables you to publish APIs with private endpoints that are accessible from within your network, and which you can expose with public IP addresses if you want them to accept internet traffic. Now you can create an Oracle OCI API Gateway Deployment from a OIC Rest based Integration. The API deployment will be created with routing rules pointing to the activated integration. Assumption:  OIC user has already created API Gateway or access to API Gateway. Creating a Deployment from OIC : · Configure in API Management settings with OCI Signature V1 Policy : Configure the properties - tenancy OCID, user OCID, fingerprint, private key and passphrase(if present). These properties can be found under your profile menu, tenancy and user settings. Click on Save button after configuring the values, it will validate the credentials and save API gateway settings. · Activate an Integration: Taking the example of a sample integration here- "Echo" integration ( You can build your own integration). Activate the integration by clicking on Activate icon. The below activate dialog will appear.In the activate dialog, there is an additional action of "Activate and Deploy" which will perform two actions- first activate the integration and then deploy it.

Embedding Oracle Integration Insight dashboards : Quickly and Easily by Sandhya Lakshmi Gopalan

Integration Insight in Oracle Integration empowers business users by providing a real-time view into their business processes. In addition to viewing Insight dashboards within the Oracle Integration console, Insight offers the capability to embed business dashboards in other applications. For example: If your business involves order management and you already have your business users using Oracle Cloud ERP to manage your orders, you can embed Insight dashboards for the order process in Cloud ERP. This provides business users with a single consolidated view within Cloud ERP, without needing to sign into Oracle Integration to view the Insight dashboards. If you have a financial business process, with a front-end application that is used by business users, Insight dashboards can be embedded in the front-end application to show real-time business process metrics that can assist in making business decisions. Integration Insight provides two ways to embed dashboards in other applications: A URL builder for embedding dashboards in an iFrame. Oracle JET Composite Component Architecture (CCA) components for embedding dashboards as HTML elements. Read the complete article here.

Linking OCI to ServiceNow via Oracle Integration by Michael Chen

  Introduction Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) is often used to connect to SaaS apps such as Salesforce and ERP. In my case, that app is a ServiceNow developer instance. Common integration patterns involve sending data between SaaS apps, whether in a one-to-one or multi-pronged approach. However, it is also possible to set up integration with OCI services that emit events. This is commonly done through the use of Oracle Functions, a "serverless platform that lets developers create, run, and scale applications without managing any infrastructure." The general structure of such an approach is the following: Some OCI service emits an event An OCI Event is configured to capture this event This event is linked to a function, which is triggered An OCI Function invokes an integration Design Overview Use case: manage cloud compute networks using ServiceNow tables. A customer wanted to manage the VMs that they created in various clouds using their ServiceNow account, which they were already familiar with. The idea here is that their ServiceNow tables would automatically sync with their cloud environments to reflect the state of all the VMs in their cloud networks. Here is an example: suppose I have three Oracle VMs and one GCP VM. One of the Oracle VMs is terminating, and another Oracle VM is stopped. On my ServiceNow table, called cmdb_ci_vm_instance_list, I will see four entries: one online Oracle VM, one offline Oracle VM, one terminated Oracle VM, and one online GCP VM. Now, suppose I provisioned a new GCP VM and restarted the offline Oracle VM. The ServiceNow table should automatically update to show two online Oracle VMs, one terminated Oracle VM, and two online GCP VMs. Finally, if I were to drill down into one of these entries, I would be able to view some basic information such as date of creation, VM shape/image, CPU count, etc. Read the complete article here.

Edit XSLT Source Code in OIC Mapper UI by Ishruthilaya Malarvizhi

This blog is for a new feature coming out in Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) February 2021 release. Previously the XSLT source code corresponding to a map, was available in read only mode in Mapper UI. With this new feature, the editing of the XSL source code is allowed in the Mapper UI in the 'Code' tab like below: This action is useful for use cases in which mapping is not possible in the graphical mapper. This eliminates the need to export your XSLT code from Oracle Integration, edit the code manually in a text editor or in a separate graphical tool such as Eclipse or Oracle JDeveloper and then re-import the code into the mapper in Oracle Integration. Some examples of the use cases in which the mapping not possible in the graphical mapper and the editing in the Code tab can be used are: Create internal variables using <xsl:variable> Correlate multiple sources grouped by key fields using <xsl:for-each-group> Read the complete article here.
