Hosted EBS 11i Integration Repository Temporarily Offline

Most developers know that they can integrate their external applications with the E-Business Suite via the business service interfaces and SOA service endpoints documented in the E-Business Suite's Integration Repository.  This is shipped as part of EBS 12.  Until recently, it was provided as a hosted environment on the Oracle.com domain for EBS 11i.

Unfortunately, we identified some standards-related issues in the process of switching from the existing server that hosts the EBS 11i environment to a new one, notably in the area of accessibility. Some of those issues will require coding changes to resolve.  Given our focus on EBS 12.2 right now, it may take some time to prioritize this relative to our other existing commitments.

In the meantime, we are required to suspend access to the EBS 11i Integration Repository.  I don't have a firm schedule for getting this back online yet, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog. I'll post updates here as soon as soon as they're available.

Steven,

Thanks for the information. I did try and couldn't open irep.oracle.com several days back - thought that to have been taken offline !

On a different note, can you please take up a discussion on adopting Oracle Application Express as a reporting platform against E-Business Suite ? I find this quite a convincing alternative to reporting via Concurrent Managers (in terms of taking off the load off mid-tier nodes), but there is little information on pros and cons of doing this and what is being adopted by other customers. Would appreciate some insight on this approach.

Regards,
Rakesh

Rakesh,

We think Application Express is an excellent tool. See this externally-published article:

For a broader discussion of which tools to use for different customization purposes, see:

As a bonus, note that Sara Woodhull has a recorded webcast on the same topic; the link is at the bottom of the second article.

Hi,

Is it possible to access the irep in a local OeBS 11i instance, like we do in r12?

Thanks
Roy

Hi, Roy,

I'm afraid not. The Integration Repository in EBS 11i is hosted-only. This was upgraded to a local version in EBS 12 and later.

Steven

Hi,
I need to find the interface tables that support meta data and hierarchy updates in the Financial module. Is there anywhere else I can find this information?

Thanks!

Cheryl,

If you look at MOS Note 432769.1, it covers Electronic Technical Reference Manuals (eTRM) Basics. It has a link to access eTRM from MOS Note 150230.1.
