Embedding the Oracle OICS Process Workspace Application in an iFrame by Siming Mu

image

Introduction

Oracle Process Cloud Workspace is a web application that a user uses to interact with human activities in BPMN processes. It is a stand-alone web application in Oracle Integration Cloud Service (OICS). In some use cases, customers want to embed the Workspace application in an iframe of their own web page. Out of box, this is not possible because all HTTP responses from the Workspace have an X-Frame-Options header set to "sameorigin". It does not allow browsers to embed response data into an iframe from a different domain.

This post demonstrates a work-around solution to this problem by using a proxy server. The idea is to use a proxy server (OHS or Apache) to  remove or modify the X-Frame-Options header from all responses from the Workspace.

Demo Environment

My demo environment, shown in the image below, includes an OHS server installed on localhost:7777. I have my OICS instance running on a VM. I have a simple test web page with an iframe installed on the OHS.

Check the Problem First

Let’s verify the problem exists first. The following two screen shots show the Workspace accessed directly without the proxy.

Now we create a simple web page "myworkspace.html" on our OHS instance. The page contains  an iframe that points directly to the Workspace. Read the complete article here.

Extend HCM Cloud with workflow process in Oracle Integration Cloud by Mani Krishnan

imageIntroduction

Oracle Integration Cloud provides rich work flow capabilities that can be integrated with Oracle SaaS applications. Oracle HCM cloud provides approval and work list capabilities for most needs. However, there are use cases where a complex workflow with multiple approvals and ability to enrich approval data from  multiple applications will be necessary. In this post, let’s look at seamlessly integrating integration cloud process user interfaces with HCM cloud.

Overview

Instructions in this post are applicable to Oracle Integration cloud on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). Each OCI tenancy is associated with an IDCS instance, which supports identity federation with Oracle SaaS applications. Enabling identity federation with IDCS also allows seamless integration with many other Oracle PaaS products. The high-level steps are:

· Enable federation between IDCS and HCM Cloud

· Add Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) to a Identity provider policy

· Embed process UI in HCM cloud

Here is a depiction of the SAML federation solution:

User logs into HCM Cloud and opens a page with an embedded OIC process page. The OIC  process page should display content specific to the currently signed-in user without requiring user to log into IDCS or HCM Cloud. Steps 3,4 and 5 are transparent to the end user.

Enable identity federation between IDCS and HCM Cloud

Before identity federation can be validated, users and role assignments also must be synchronized between HCM Cloud and IDCS. There are several ways to achieve it. Follow instructions at this link to use the ESS Job in SaaS to synchronize users and role assignments. This task can be entirely performed by customers as self service. Read the complete article here.

Use Oracle Integration to Add Attachments to a Process Instance by Bogdan Eremia

imageThe other day it came to my attention that it’s not really straightforward to add attachments to an Oracle Process Instance using the REST API.

One reason for this is that it requires multipart/mixed media type for the request body message format, and producing this kind format is not so common for JavaScript clients. The JS clients are more used to working with multipart/form-data, the de-facto standard for form-based file upload in HTML.

One way of overcoming this is to use Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) between the JS client and Process REST API. OIC has a REST Technology Adapter that supports sending/receiving attachments in both multipart/mixed and multipart/form-data media types. The goal is to shape in OIC a REST interface that accepts multipart/form-data, to do a translation into multipart/mixed (alongside with other transformations/actions if required) and to call the Process REST API. Below are the main steps for achieving this.

1. Create a REST Connection in OIC for Process REST API.

Go to OIC Homepage > Designer > Connections to create a new connection by selecting the REST Adapter. Read the complete article here.

Insight Mapping Improvements by Santhosh Kumar

imageAs part of the Oracle Integration May 2021 release, the Insight mapping experience has been updated to improve usability.

These improvements are intended to achieve:
– Consistent presentation of models and milestones in the Insight model editor and in the mapping UI in Integrations.
– Model editing while mapping it to an integration.
– Efficiency by reducing the need for context switching during the mapping process. When switching is necessary, it is now more context-driven (thus reducing the number of mouse clicks required). Read the complete article here.

Alerts and Notifications in Integration Insight by Sandhya Lakshmi Gopalan

image

With the May 2021 quarterly release of Oracle Integration, you can configure email notifications in Integration Insight to alert recipients when a milestone is passed or not passed, or when an indicator is assigned a specific value.

What is an Alert?

An alert is an indication that a particular event (or series of events) has occurred, or that an expected event has not occurred within a defined timeframe.

The May 2021 release allows the definition of three types of alerts:

1. Alerts based on the value of an Indicator, e.g "Order amount > $10,000".

2. Alerts based on business transactions passing a specific milestone, e.g. milestone "Order Returned" was passed because the order has been returned.

3. Alerts when a milestone is not passed within a specified timeframe. e.g. "Order Shipped" milestone is not passed within 2 days after "Order Confirmed".

Alerts in Insight are configured as part of the Insight model as shown below: Read the complete article here.

Integration Insight for Process automation by Sandhya Lakshmi Gopalan

image

As part of the May 2021 release of Oracle Integration , we have added a new capability which will enable to map Insight to Process applications. This feature will facilitate business users to gain real time visibility of their process applications too.

Often business processes span across multiple process and integration flows. With this feature , you can create an insight model which can be mapped across both the integration and process flows.

First, create an  insight model aligning to your business process and activate it.

For example: Let us consider a travel approval business process. This process involves a couple of milestones , indicators and identifier as shown below. Read the complete article here.
