Fault Notification Alerts – New Functionality in Oracle SOA 12c by Jennie DeRosa



One of the new features included in Oracle SOA Suite 12c is the ability to define notification rules that will automatically create alerts when something goes wrong. These fault alerts can be routed to communication channels such as email, SMS, and/or IM. Along with this, they can be made visible within the SOA dashboard in Enterprise Manager. The notification of the alerts are also scheduled based on a predefined time frame, allowing for notifications to time based.

Within this blog, the pre-requisites and steps required to configure this new functionality are detailed.

Scheduler Service

The installation of the Enterprise Scheduler Service (ESS) is a prerequisite and is necessary in order to define a notification rule within SOA. An ESS schedule is associated with a notification rule and is used to tell it when to kick off an error notification. One thing to note, ESS is not compatible with the Java Database, which means it cannot be installed within the Integrated WebLogic Server default domain from JDeveloper found in the SOA Suite Quick Start distribution. It is, though, compatible with the Oracle Database Express Edition (XE). This will require the Repository Creation Utility (rcu.bat) to be run after the database is installed. Once this is done, run the config.cmd (part of the Quick Start distribution) to create and configure the compact domain. Be sure to specify the ESS components from the available templates:

Define a Schedule

Prior to creating an alert, a schedule needs to be defined within ESS. This is done within Enterprise Manager (EM) by navigating to ‘Define Schedules’ as shown below: Read complete article here.
