Managing API Gateway Costs with Oracle API Platform by Phil Wilkins

image

The Oracle API Platform adopted an intelligent pricing model by basing costs on API call volumes and Logical gateway node groupings per hour. In our book about the API Platform (more here). We suggested that a good logical grouping would be to reflect the development, test, preproduction and production model. This makes it nice and easy to use gateway based routing to different environments without needing to change the API policy configuration as you promote your solution through environments.

We have also leveraged naming and Role/Group Based Access Controls to make to make it easy to operate the API Platform as a shared service, rather than each team having its own complete instance. In doing so the number of logical gateways needed is limited (I.e. not logical gateway divisions on per team models needed). Group management is very easy through the leveraging of Oracle’s Identity Cloud Service – which is free for managing users on the Oracle solutions, and also happens to a respected product in its own right. Read the complete article here.

Custom time range filter for monitoring pages in OIC by Arya Sanyal

image

Custom time range filter is a new time based filter being added in the monitoring pages, which allows an user to filter runtime data for a user-defined time period. This filter will be available under feature flag oic.ics.console.monitoring.tracking.filter.custom-date-range.

With this, any user can select a time range as small as a minute and track only those instances which were processed/modified within the specified time range. Similar to other existing time window filters, this filter is preserved by default when user navigates from one monitoring page to another.

Note : The time range selected should be within the retention period, as data beyond Retention period are not retained. Even if selected time range is beyond retention period, only available data will be displayed.

Step-by-step guide

Following steps show how to use the custom time range filter after enabling the feature flag.

1. Select the time window as shown below. "From" and "To" date fields for the new time filter are displayed. Read the complete article here.

Migrating ICS to OIC by Niall Commiskey

image

First question – Why migrate?

How about the following 3 compelling reasons –
1. OIC is your Swiss Army knife, when it comes to integration. It contains not only integration, but also Process and Visual Builder. So now you can also extend your apps and create net new apps on top of your SaaS apis.

2. New Features in OIC – new adapters (e.g. UI Path, Automation Anywhere etc.). New JET based mapper – the list is exhaustive.

3. It will probably be cheaper. So now to a simple example of moving your integrations from ICS to OIC.
Essentially what we do it export the repository of your integration artefacts from ICS to OIC. Btw. the relevant Oracle Migration documentation is here and I strongly suggest you look at it. Read the complete article here.
