Content-Based Routing with Integration Cloud Service by Robert van Molken


In my previous article I discussed the fall updates of Integration Cloud Service. One of the features in this update is the possibility for content-based routing within integrations. I came across this feature during UKOUG Tech 15 in the beginning of December. In an two our hands-on lab I had some time to play with the content-based routing feature. The amazing thing is that it did it all on my iPad. In this article I will describe the feature and the steps to implement a common use-case.

What does Content-Based Routing mean?

The fall updates introduced content-based routing, which essentially mean that based on a value in the payload a different flow is executed. A use-case for this type of routing is the possibility to retrieve data from a different application based on the country code. With Integration Cloud Service is as easy as adding a filter on the request operation of the source connection.

Step 1: Adding a filter to route on

The first step is adding a filter to route the request on. To demonstrate this I’m using an already existing integration. This integration receives a GET request for retrieving the information of an organization. The current integration always retrieves the organization from the US site.

To add a filter a user would click on the funnel icon. Clicking on this icon will open the Expression Builder. In the Expression Builder a user can set an expression to filter requests on. This can simply be done by drag n drop the field to filter on. Read the complete article here.
