ICS to API Platform by John Graves

I’ve been using the API Platform and Integration Cloud Service (ICS) for some time now.  Independently, they are powerful products but together they are even better.

Initially, most ICS use cases were SaaS to SaaS or an extension to an existing SaaS.  But more and more I’m seeing people use ICS in place of a standard service bus to do basic validation, enrichment, transformation and routing.

But how do you expose these ICS services using standard API methods?  Well, it isn’t too difficult to go into API Platform and define an API to point to the ICS service, but this could be quite tedious.

Luckily, all the Oracle products have an “API first” strategy, so it wasn’t too difficult to setup an ICS flow to automatically publish new services into the API Platform.

I decided to use a scheduler ICS flow to periodically look for new services and publish them to the API Platform.

The first thing to do was to get information about the ICS services.  This was easy using the API: Read the complete article here.
