August 2021 Oracle Integration Update by Antony Reynolds


It is time for the August quarterly update to Oracle Integration. With Summer in full swing, Lilly, the Oracle integration mascot, is pleased to share all our new features and improvements. Note that testing is still underway for these features and, although unlikely, it is possible that some will not meet our quality standard and be deferred to a later release.

Announcements & Update Windows

Currently tenant administrators get notified of OIC Gen 2 updates via notifications in the OCI console. OIC Gen 2 administrators can also see the same update notice in the OIC console, so watch out for the date of your update.

Remember, you can also mark your Gen 2 instance for update in either the first or second update window, as explained in Choose Your Update Window. If you previously tagged your instance, then there is no need to tag it again. If it is not yet tagged for window 1, then the deadline for tagging for August was 14 July but you can still add it for the November release. Tags added after July 14 will take effect for the November release.

An Artificially Intelligent Assistant

This release continues to expand the artificial intelligence capabilities within Oracle Integration by debuting a new digital assistant named Oracle Assistant. Use Oracle Assistant to learn how to get started with Oracle Integration, find answers to your questions, and more. Give it a try, and let us know what you think!

To learn more about how Oracle Assistant was developed see this great video.

Prebuilt Connectivity Enhancements

As usual there are enhancements to existing adapters as well as important new adapters.

New Third Party Adapters

Two new adapters for popular applications are released this quarter:

  • SAP S/4 Hana Adapter
  • Zendesk Adapter

Enhanced Adapters

Exciting updates to a number of third party adapters:

  • OData support in SuccessFactors Adapter
  • Platform Event support in Salesforce Adapter
  • JQL support in Jira Adapter
  • Custom Objects are now supported in Bulk Export in Marketo Adapter

Recipes Update

Lots of new recipes,many of them dealing with customer experience (CX) applications. Note that these recipes may not ship at exactly the same time as the August update. check the OIC home page for these recipes.

Note each recipe is only listed once in the table, for example the sync new/updated issue from Jira to Salesforce is listed under Jira recipes not Salesforce. So make sure to check both endpoints for a recipe that may interest you. Read the complete article here.
