The Oracle On-Premises Agent (aka, Connectivity Agent) is necessary for Oracle ICS to communicate to on-premise resources without the need for firewall configurations or VPN. Additional details about the Agent can be found under New Agent Simplifies Cloud to On-premises Integration. The purpose of this A-Team blog is to give a consolidated and simplified flow of what is needed to install the agent and provide a foundation for other blogs (e.g., E-Business Suite Integration with Integration Cloud Service and DB Adapter). For the detailed online documentation for the On-Premises Agent, see Managing Agent Groups and the On-Premises Agent.
The high-level steps for getting the On-Premises Agent installed on your production POD consist of two activities: 1. Create an Agent Group in the ICS console, and 2. Run the On-Premises Agent installer. Step 2 will be done on an on-premise Linux machine and the end result will be a lightweight WebLogic server instance that will be running on port 7001.
