5 Things You Should Know About Documents Cloud Service

Over the last few months, we have been discussing the newly released Oracle Documents Cloud Service. We have provided a high level overview of the offering, ran a series of posts for an in-depth discussion into DOCS easy and intuitive administration, a discussion on mobile enablement and most recently on how Documents Cloud Service makes it easy for application developers. While you may have already picked on these, today we will discuss the five things you should know about Oracle Documents Cloud Service.

  1. Documents Cloud Service is a secure cloud store, share, access solution for your enterprise needs

    With Documents Cloud Service, you can store the documents in cloud extending enterprise security controls to documents whether they are in rest or in transit. You can also share these documents for work collaboration both within the organization and with approved external users, with granular controls defined to maintain document control. You can also access these files from anywhere, using any device – your desktop, a web browser on a different machine/device or on your mobile phones and tablets.

  2. Documents Cloud Service offers the user experience of consumer-grade file sharing solution but security of an enterprise-grade solution

    Oracle Documents Cloud Service lets you quickly and easily share information without risking company’s critical business assets and information. Anything you store in Oracle Documents Cloud Service is available to you wherever you are with whatever device you have available. That means you can work with the devices you’re comfortable using—a web browser or mobile app, anytime, anywhere, worry free.

  3. Documents Cloud Services allows you to mobilize enterprise content

    Too often, organizations end up with multiple copies of important files, with no clear understanding of where the master copy resides or with information silos leading to not just security and compliance concerns but also fragmented information which may lead to costly mistakes in decision making. Businesses need contextual information wherever, whenever and a hybrid ECM solution with Documents Cloud Service tightly integrates with existing ECM systems of record and enterprise business processes, so that users can easily leverage the organization’s content assets and avoid information fragmentation and security risks.

  4. Documents Cloud Service enforces corporate security and IT controls

    With Oracle Documents Cloud Service, you have the convenience of collaborative access without the risk associated with consumer-grade products. Enterprise encryption, auditing, tracking, permission controls, and automatic backups keep your information safe. Your data and documents are completely isolated and secure, with separate database schemas and identity domains for each tenant. For additional security, Oracle Documents Cloud Service supports strong encryption, both at rest and in transit.

  5. An accompaniment of SaaS, Documents Cloud Service is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering from Oracle

Documents Cloud Service offers the convenience and the user experience much like a business application but it offers the added advantage of being a platform service that enables application developers to extend and customize their cloud, on-premise and custom apps using Documents Cloud Service. You can easily embed the Oracle Documents Cloud Service web interface into your custom applications so your team can manage their folders and documents directly within the context of their existing tasks. This will enable a seamless UI experience with collaborators having access to contextual information anywhere, anytime. We had touched on this aspect in our last post as well.

As you know, there is so much more to collaboration than simply cloud file sharing and that is why Documents Cloud Service is Oracle’s enterprise-grade offering to solve a business challenge that requires more than just commodity file sharing.

Using Documents Cloud Service PaaS to Accelerate Product Development

by Victor Owuor, Senior Director, Oracle Documents Cloud Service Product Management

Many applications have to manage documents or images in addition to solving the business problems that they target. For example, a marketing campaign manager may want to drop in the very latest marketing brochure in a campaign she is running; a document that is constantly being updated by the marketing team. In general, users have certain expectation about what they should be able to do with the documents. They may want to:

  • Upload the documents from their desktop by simply dragging to specific folder. They would expect some sync client to push the document to the relevant location associated with the application.
  • Access the documents from their mobile application or from a different computer workstation or via the Web.
  • Easily but securely share the documents with other users, either within or external to their organization for work collaboration.
  • Have the documents available even when offline

Whether you are using a Cloud, on-premise or a custom application, application developers do not have to develop these capabilities from scratch. Documents Cloud Service is a Platform-as-a-Service offering from Oracle that can be easily leveraged with Oracle SaaS, on-premise and any third party applications. Oracle Documents Cloud Service provides a platform that developers can use to expose those features quickly with minimal development effort. Developers have a choice between:

  • Iframe Embedding - Embedding the Document Cloud Service HTML interface within their application to surface the document capability. This approach does not require you to implement a user interface to the Document Cloud Service and automatically surfaces all features the Service in your application.
  • API - Surfacing Document Cloud Service within the user interface of their application by making web service calls to the Document Service API. This approach allows you to create a custom user interface that is tailored to your specific application.

Additionally, developers may use Applinks to leverage the same user credentials for Oracle Documents.

This article will focus on Iframe Embedding. We will address the API in a future article.

Iframe Embedding

You can embed the Oracle Documents Cloud Service interface in an inline frame (IFRAME tag). When you do that, you may want to remove the default branding and other aspects of the user interface. You can do that by adding “/embed” to the URL of the page that you would like to embed.

For example, the top level folder URL in the standard interface is as follows:

If you change the URL as follows, you will get a user interface that is better suited to embedding.

You can embed that iframe within your application as follows:

<!doctype html>



<title>IFRAME DEMO</title>



<iframe src="" width="100%" height="300">

<p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p>


<iframe src="" width="100%" height="300">

<p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p>




Here is another example to show how you can embed the preview of a file.

The file preview URL

To get to the embed view for Preview, just add “/embed” into the URL e.g.

You can find more help on the help on how to embed the Web UI here.

Throwback Thursday: Middleware Newsletter Feature on Documents Cloud Service

Originally Published in Middleware Newsletter November 2014

Introducing Oracle Documents Cloud Service

The digital economy runs on a constant flow of information, and smart companies know that limiting access to information reduces the ability to make split-second decisions that drive competitive advantage. The challenge is to provide access to files for people constantly on the move, simply and without compromising security.

Solving that challenge is the driver behind Oracle Documents Cloud Service, announced at Oracle OpenWorld 2014.

"We wanted organizations to be able to sync and share files with the same simplicity found in consumer-oriented services, but with enterprise-grade security and ease of integration with their existing IT infrastructure and applications," says Oracle's Senior Director of Product Management David Le Strat.

Oracle Documents Cloud Service is organized around four key concepts.

  • Simplicity. Collaboration is an organic, intuitive process that succeeds best with tools that help processes unfold without imposing technical restrictions. Oracle Documents Cloud Service is available to you wherever you are, using whatever device you have handy. That means you can work with the tools you're comfortable using—a web browser or mobile app—without any special training.

  • Security. Enterprises cannot risk security vulnerabilities with mission-critical information. Oracle Documents Cloud Service provides enterprise-grade security. Enterprise encryption for files at rest or in transit, secure sharing with auditing, tracking, permission controls, and automatic backups keep your information safe. Your data and documents are completely isolated and secure, with separate database schemas and identity domains for each tenant.

  • Ubiquity. With support for iPhone, iPad, and Android mobile devices, along with desktop sync for both Mac and Windows computers, it doesn't matter how you access your documents. The service is always available, anytime—for you and everyone you collaborate with.

  • Integration. Oracle Documents Cloud Service has been designed with a rich set of APIs for integrating and extending business applications and processes with content collaboration. "For example," says Le Strat, "you can embed the Oracle Documents Cloud Service web interface into your business applications, letting your team manage their content directly within the context of existing tasks."
The ability to easily and securely access files and collaborate on business initiatives is a key underpinning to enterprise agility. With Oracle Documents Cloud Service, you can support the nimble business while still maintaining vital IT control and security.

Oracle WebCenter is the center of engagement for business—powering exceptional experiences for customers, partners, and employees. It connects people, process, and information with the most complete portfolio of portal, Web experience management, content, imaging and collaboration technologies.
