OIC Integration Lifecycle Using REST Endpoints by Amy Simpson-Grange


Out-of-the-box, Oracle provides a bunch of REST endpoints available to interact with your Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) instance or the components in which you have built. In this post, we will look at how we interact with an OIC integration using the available REST endpoints throughout it’s lifecycle. This post will not cover all available endpoints and ways to utilize, but rather the key use cases and those that I think are really useful! The full list of available endpoints can be found here.

OIC supports OAuth 2.0 authentication mechanism. Before you can get started using these APIs, you will need to ensure you have the appropriate details to authenticate, retrieve a token and use in your REST calls. For information on doing this, see the Oracle Documentation.

When you call any of the Oracle Integration REST endpoints, the response header returns one of the standard HTTP status codes defined here.

I should also point out that all of this activity can also be completed manually within the OIC service console but these endpoints are specifically useful if you want to script/automate the lifecycle processes. Read the complete article here.
