HCM Atom Feed Subscriber using SOA Cloud Service by Jack Desai

clip_image002Introduction

HCM Atom feeds provide notifications of Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM) events and are tightly integrated with REST services. When an event occurs in Oracle Fusion HCM, the corresponding Atom feed is delivered automatically to the Atom server. The feed contains details of the REST resource on which the event occurred. Subscribers who consume these Atom feeds use the REST resources to retrieve additional information about the resource.

For more information on Atom, please refer to this.

This post focuses on consuming and processing HCM Atom feeds using Oracle Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Cloud Service. Oracle SOA Cloud Service provides a PaaS computing platform solution for running Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle Service Bus, and Oracle API Manager in the cloud. For more information on SOA Cloud Service, please refer this.

Oracle SOA is the industry’s most complete and unified application integration and SOA solution. It transforms complex application integration into agile and re-usable service-based connectivity to speed time to market, respond faster to business requirements, and lower costs.. SOA facilitates the development of enterprise applications as modular business web services that can be easily integrated and reused, creating a truly flexible, adaptable IT infrastructure.

For more information on getting started with Oracle SOA, please refer this. For developing SOA applications using SOA Suite, please refer this.

Main Article

Atom feeds enable you to keep track of any changes made to feed-enabled resources in Oracle HCM Cloud. For any updates that may be of interest for downstream applications, such as new hire, terminations, employee transfers and promotions, Oracle HCM Cloud publishes Atom feeds. Your application will be able to read these feeds and take appropriate action.

Atom Publishing Protocol (AtomPub) allows software applications to subscribe to changes that occur on REST resources through published feeds. Updates are published when changes occur to feed-enabled resources in Oracle HCM Cloud. These are the following primary Atom feeds:

Employee Feeds

New hire
Termination
Employee update

Assignment creation, update, and end date

Work Structures Feeds (Creation, update, and end date)

Organizations
Jobs
Positions
Grades
Locations

The above feeds can be consumed programmatically. In this post, Node.js is implemented as one of the solutions consuming “Employee New Hire” feeds, but design and development is similar for all the supported objects in HCM. Read the complete article here.

Deploying to the SOA Cloud Service by Greg Draheim Overview

clip_image001On Monday night we obtained access to the SOA Cloud Service here at Flexagon, where we hope to use it for on-demand capacity.  One of our goals with FlexDeploy is to make it easy to move components from one environment or instance to another, enabling a true “lift-and-shift” into the cloud.  Since the SOA Cloud Service is built on top of the same underlying Oracle infrastructure, configuring it as a FlexDeploy target is a breeze.

In this blog article, I will cover how to deploy a set of projects that are currently used on-premise into this new SOA Cloud Service.

Adding a SOA Cloud instance to FlexDeploy

To deploy our composites we had a few steps to complete:

· Added the required datasource and outbound connection pool entries

· Created the SOA partition we deploy to (“order”)

· Created customization and configuration plans for the new environment

· Added the new endpoint and instance to FlexDeploy

· Deployed the composites and OSB components into the SOA Cloud Service instance

The screen below is the configuration screen for the SOA Cloud instance in FlexDeploy. This one configuration page handles the instance specific configuration. 

Click image to enlarge.

As an interesting note, the instance of FlexDeploy above is running on the Java Cloud Service.

Executing the Deploy

I have a FlexDeploy application that contains 5 projects I plan to deploy:

· PackAndShipService (SOA Composite)

· ProcessOrder (SOA Composite)

· SBOrderEBS (OSB Project)

Blurr the cloud lining with NetSuite: Introducing NetSuite Cloud Adapter on Oracle Integration Cloud Service by Rajesh Kalra

clip_image001NetSuite is a leading SaaS business software suite for ERP/financials, eCommerce, and order management. NetSuite cloud applications are commonly used by many mid-market and enterprise level companies, to streamline operations and provide real time visibility for better and faster decisions.

Oracle has introduced an all new NetSuite cloud adapter, in the latest release of its iPaaS -Integration Cloud Service (ICS). This new addition to the catalog of cloud adapters provides agility for NetSuite integrations, and enables organizations to access NetSuite content across business flows quickly and seamlessly.

The NetSuite cloud adapter provides rich and intuitive design time capabilities viz. functional categories of objects to select the business object(s) for integration, besides delivering the elevated user experience common to all cloud adapters.

Now Sales teams at any company can leverage the ICS iPaaS solution to build a lead-to-cash process from any SaaS based CRM (Oracle Sales Cloud or Salesforce.com) to NetSuite, creating quotes/orders in real time, thus eliminating manual order entry. They can access latest financial information, order status, or product availability via the NetSuite cloud adapter, and slash financial close. Read the complete article here.

Digital Innovation Demands Hybrid Integration by Carol Hildebrand

clip_image002I thought cloud computing would do away with acronym-laden technologies such as service-oriented architecture (SOA). Can’t you just sign up for applications run in a public cloud?

You can, but what happens when you want to integrate that shiny new cloud app with your existing applications and data? That integration has its own term—hybrid cloud—and for most enterprises, it’s the new norm. More than 65% of enterprise IT organizations will commit to hybrid cloud technologies before 2016, according to International Data Corporation.

Meanwhile, everyone from marketing to HR to product development is screaming for better information flow between departments, and they don’t care where the apps reside. That also requires smooth integration of cloud and legacy applications and data, which, as you will see, leads us back to SOA. Read the complete article here.

In drei Schritten zur Onlinehypothek – Hypothekar-Antrags-Prozess auf der Cloud Prozessplattform von Oracle (Oracle PCS) by Richard Schaller

imageIn drei Schritten erstellen wir einen einfachen Hypothekar-Antrags-Prozess auf der Cloud Prozessplattform von Oracle (Oracle PCS). Der Prozess kann direkt nach Erstellung auf dem Handy, Tablet oder Laptop genutzt werden.

Im letzten Teil der Blog-Serie wie die Prozessautomatisierung den Digitalisierungs-Initiativen zum Erfolg verhilft, setzen wir beispielhaft einen einfachen Hypothekar-Antrags-Prozess in drei Schritten um. Wir verwenden dazu die Cloud-Prozessplattform von Oracle.

Schritt 1: Formular erstellen

Das zentrale Element ist ein Formular, das die geschäftlichen Daten beinhaltet. Der Workflow (Prozess) verwendet das Formular vom Anfang bis zum Ende. Der Nutzer startet den Prozess indem er das Formular ausfüllt, Dokumente hinzufügt und versendet. Im Verlauf des Workflows wird das Formular vom Kunden und von Sachbearbeitern fortlaufend ergänzt. Der Arbeitsfluss wird von der Cloud-Plattform gesteuert.

Die Erstellung von Formularen ist intuitiv. Die einzelnen Elemente können bequem mittels «Drag und Drop» angeordnet werden. Die nachfolgende Abbildung zeigt die verfügbaren Formular-Elemente der Oracle Process Cloud (PCS).

Die Formular-Elemente werden ohne Programmierung individuell angepasst. Im Vordergrund steht die Konfiguration von Name, Tipp und Eingabeformat (Text, Datum, E-Mail, Zahl, Auswahl, etc.). Dank der Unterstützung für Mehrsprachigkeit wird das Formular dem Benutzer in seiner Sprache dargestellt. Die nachfolgende Abbildung zeigt ein mögliches Formular.

Schritt 2: Hypothekar-Antrags-Prozess konfigurieren

Der Prozess ist ein sogenannter Antragsprozess. Wir wählen deshalb die dafür vorbereitete Vorlage aus. Oracle PCS stellt eine Reihe von Prozess-/Workflow-Vorlagen zur Verfügung.

Oracle PCS erstellt einen einfachen Antragsprozess. Dieser sieht zu Beginn wie folgt aus:

Nun geht es darum, den einfachen Prozess an die eigenen Bedürfnisse anzupassen. In unserem Fall sind folgende Anpassungen erforderlich:

  • Das Formular aus Schritt 1 den einzelnen Prozessschritten (grüne Boxen) zuweisen
  • Dem Antragsprozess konkrete Benutzergruppen (Antragsteller, Sachbearbeiter, Manager) zuweisen.

Process Cloud Services 16.2.1 available

clip_image002ANNOUNCING…Oracle Process Cloud Service

16.2.1 Release

We are pleased to announce the availability of the 16.2.1 release of Process Cloud Service (PCS)

What's New!

  • Document Workflow Process Apps
  • Business Indicators and Analytics Dashboard
  • REST Service Connectors
  • New Process Composer
  • New Data Association and Transformation Editor
  • Federated SSO
  • OAuth Authentication for REST API

Document Workflow Process Apps

Oracle Process Cloud Service introduces a new Document Start activity to create Document Workflow Process Applications specifically designed to process documents and document folders from Documents Cloud Service. Documents and folders used to initiate a Document Workflow Process Application are automatically associated to the process, providing participants easy access to the content within the context of their assigned tasks. The introduction of first class Document Workflow capabilities makes it easy to create processes to manage document review and approval, transactional document management and light weight case management use cases. 

Business Indicators and Analytics Dashboard

Business indicators enable you to capture and display business metrics specific to your applications. Use the Business Analytics Dashboard to plot and view charts, graphs and reports for business metrics captured as business indicators. Create charts that display business indicator values. In Composer, developers create business indicators for data objects whose metrics they want to capture and display as X axis, Y axis, and filter values. In Workspace, you select business or system indicators to plot them in charts, graphs and reports.

REST Service Connectors

Use the new REST Service Connector to invoke RESTful services directly from within a process flow. The Service Activity has been enhanced to support both SOAP and REST Service Connectors, providing a familiar approach to interacting with external data sources and systems. Using the REST Service Connector you can easily define the resources, operations and payloads needed to connect to a REST service, regardless of the description language used to define the service.

New Process Composer

The new Process Composer has a more flexible and intuitive user Interface that can now be accessed through mobile tablets. The BPMN palette is easier to navigate. The process Activities are easier to access. And improved process flow layout makes it easier to create professional and organized looking process maps. Select an Activity to choose from a contextual set of actions and properties to configure the Activity behavior. Changing process sequence is more intuitive and provides contextual instructions on sequence flow alternatives.

New Data Association and Transformation Editor

The new Data Association editor greatly simplifies the task of mapping data between process Data Objects and Activities. Separate Input and Output associations allow for a more natural experience that makes it easy to map and review associations. Simply drag-and-drop Data Objects and Activity Payloads or use the intelligent auto-complete data entry. Even create new Data Objects right in the editor. Define reusable Transformations to associate different data types or reduce complex mappings. Define them once and apply wherever they’re needed in the application.

Federated SSO

Oracle Process Cloud Service now supports federated single sign-on (SSO) and authentication. Users who enter their valid credentials are authenticated through the their identity provider such as Oracle Identity Federation (OIF) or Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) using the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) protocol, and redirected to the Oracle Process Cloud Service Workspace or Composer home page.

OAuth Authentication for REST API

Oracle Process Cloud Service now accepts OAuth tokens as an alternative to basic authentication for our REST APIs
