Troubleshooting Oracle API Platform Cloud Service by Lonneke Dikmans


One of the challenges when working in integration is troubleshooting. This becomes even more challenging with when you start using a new product.
Recently I worked with Oracle Product management (Thank you Darko and Lohit) to troubleshoot issues with an OAuth configuration of APIs in Oracle API Platform Cloud Service.


The setup was as follows:

  1. An API Gateway node deployed to Oracle Compute Cloud Classic as an infrastructure provider
  2. Oracle Identity Management Cloud Service in the role of OAuth provider

We setup an API with several policies, including OAuth for security. When we called the service, it gave us a ‘401 unauthorized’ error.

Oracle API Platform Cloud Service troubleshooting

The Oracle API Platform Service offers analytics for each API. You can navigate there by opening the API Platform Management portal, click on the API you want to troubleshoot and click on the Analytics tab (this is the bottom tab).
Click on Errors and Rejections, after setting the period you are interested in. Usually when you are troubleshooting, you would like to see the last hour. Read the complete article here.
