Leverage the power of BI Publisher in Cloud integrations Hakan Biroglu

 

clip_image002By now we are all accustomed to running Applications in the Cloud and it has reached the next phase: extensibility and integrating of the Cloud Applications with other applications in our enterprise architecture. Oracle is investing a lot on this area with PaaS, IaaS, DBaaS, MWaaS, JaaS and everything else that ends with aaS. This will work fine if you are a Sales Cloud customer, where you have the ability to create custom objects, outbound calls, etc.
But what if you’re a Cloud ERP or HCM customer? Integration here is currently limited to file based extracts, file based loaders, spreadsheet loaders and web services that have been made available to be consumed externally. In real-time integrations you may be confronted with data needs that are not (yet) available by the web services provided in Cloud Applications, but you also do not the tooling to create custom web services for these needs. Or do you?
Inspired by this blog of FA Developer Relations, I would like to demonstrate how you can create custom real-time data extracts on nearly any data that resides in Fusion, using the PublicReportService
The PublicReportService is an externally available web service that provides you the ability to create, delete, update, schedule and run BI Publisher Reports. What makes this really interesting is the combination of creating your custom datamodel in BI Publisher and the operation to run a Report on this data.

Custom Datamodel

From the Navigator you can access BI Publisher via the menu item Reports and Analytics. From here create a new Report. Read the complete article here.
