Using Integration flows with File Transfers by Michael Meiner

Oracle Integration (OIC) eliminates barriers between business applications through a combination of machine learning, embedded best-practice guidance, pre-built integration and process automation. Integration Cloud provides the means for integrating applications, automating processes and building applications visually. Integration Cloud can also consume, produce, and perform transformations, on files.

For use cases where an sftp server is needed, Integration Cloud can be coupled with Oracle Managed File Transfer (MFTCS) Cloud Service to build and end-to-end solution. MFTCS has an embedded sftp server, along with features not available in traditional sftp solutions. For instance, MFTCS can integrate with other endpoints including: SOAP, Storage Service, ODI, B2B and WebCenter.

When provisioning OIC and MFTCS, you’ll want to provision them in the same Oracle datacenter for maximum performance.

Use Case

In our use case, we perform a bulk data import of external transactions into ERP cloud.  We introduce the following marketing personas: Mary is responsible for Customer Relationship Management (CRM) in Oracle EBS. We also introduce Bob, responsible for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) in Oracle Fusion ERP. Mary and Bob need these systems to sync automatically, without human intervention. EBS will be generating content that needs to be consumed by ERP.

The demonstration uses Oracle’s cloud integration capabilities to automate the bulk data import process. A .csv file of transaction records is transferred to an SFTP server (i.e., MFTCS), where it is picked up and processed by the Integration Cloud. If necessary, the integration flow can add additional data to the inbound transactions prior to passing the data off to ERP cloud. Read the complete article here.
