Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) Integration provides adapter for most popular SaaS applications, including Oracle HCM Cloud.  This post focuses on integrating with HCM data loader (HDL) tool of HCM using OIC HCM adapter, multiple HDL file processing and fault handling. Information in this post is applicable to release 18.3.1 of OIC.

HCM Adapter basics

Refer to documentation here, for more information about HCM adapter. At a high level, HCM adapter makes it easier to integrate with HCM cloud using REST , HDL. HCM Extracts and ATOM feeds. As with all OIC adapters,a connection is first created using  Oracle HCM Cloud adapter with endpoints and credentials to the target HCM cloud environment. This connection is then used as invocation target in integration flows, at which time the specifics of the integration such as HDL or ATOM feeds is configured. Note that HCM adapter does not generate HDL-formatted file at this time, although this can be done using OIC. Refer to another A-team blog for guidance on generating HDL files within an integration flow. Below are the sample configuration screens for using HCM adapter for HDL imports.

Integration logic and Implementation

The integration flow elaborated here was demonstrated to a customer who had the following requirements:

  • Multiple HDL files from several source systems should be processed for each run, from FTP location
  • Files should be processed in alpha numeric order of file name. Read the complete article here.
