Business Identifiers in Oracle Integration by Ankur Jain

image

A Business identifier in Oracle Integration helps you to track the messages from the monitoring dashboard quickly and easily.

Without enabling the Business identifiers, you can not activate the integrations.

Max 3 business identifiers can be assigned during the design time. One is primary and the other two are secondary. Read the complete article here.

OIC Monitoring and Logging Analytics – adding Business Data to Dashboards by Niall Commiskey

imageIntegration Insight is THE solution for business user facing Dashboards on top of your integrations and processes. However, you can also surface business / payload data in Logging analytics. The example below is again based on the OIC Activity Stream logs.

Now we do suggest turning off logging for your production integrations, however, there may be reasons for logging, such as for compliance purposes e.g. I need to prove when order nr 123 was processed. The OIC LOG action will still write to the OIC Activity Stream, even when flow logging has not been enabled.

Here is my simple order processing integration -  Read the complete article here.

OIC Monitoring and Logging Analytics – more steps towards Fleet Management by Niall Commiskey

imageThe previous post mentioned 2 OIC instances in two different regions. A typical fleet management requirement would be to check whether both OIC instances are up and running. Here’s where OCI APM – Application Performance Management can help -.

It contains a feature called Synthetic Monitoring -  The APM docs tells us that Synthetic Monitoring helps in simulating a path in the application that a user would normally take, and ensure that the user can transition through the different web pages in the path smoothly. This helps is recognizing application performance issues before the end user experiences it. I created 2 simple ping-style integrations, one in my London and one in my Phoenix OIC instance. These can then be called by APM – Read the complete article here.

OIC and Logging Analytics – steps towards fleet management by Niall Commiskey

image

This post covers the scenario of aggregating the logs of OIC instances from different regions within the one tenancy. In my case, OIC1 is in UK South(London) and OIC2 is in US West(Phoenix). So how best to approach this?

We’ve seen in a previous post how easy it is to push the OIC Activity Stream logs to OCI Logging Service. That is the starting point for us.

So back to our use-case – this is the high level flow – OIC1 London Activity Stream Logs to OCI Logging – Read the complete article here.

Logging Analytics for OIC by Niall Commiskey

image

With OIC on OCI we get a plethora of monitoring capabilities; we also have the ability to analyse logs and naturally push data to other analytics services such as Oracle Analytics Cloud. all of us are, hopefully, very familiar with the OOTB monitoring features of OIC. This post goes a little deeper to see what’s on offer at OCI level. This post discusses the OIC Metrics available at OCI service level. It also looks at the OCI Logging Analytics service and the value-add it provides. So let’s get going!

The above dashboard is a simple and basic example of what one can do with OIC logs in OCI Logging Analytics service.

There are 2 sources for the data shown above – let’s call them default and custom. Part 2 of my recent post discusses the former. You can check out the post here

So now to Logging Analytics – here is the main menu. Read the complete article here.

Use Oracle Integration to connect E-Business Suite with SOA to Financials Cloud

image

Most deployments of Oracle E-Business Suite are integrated with other commercial or bespoke applications so companies can run their processes with agility. Oracle software-oriented architecture (SOA) Suite is a popular choice to provide integration to EBS for its broad connectivity options and EBS Adapter capabilities.

When you move your applications to the cloud, there are more opportunities to modernize and integrate with other cloud services and SaaS applications. Oracle Integration takes integration and connectivity capabilities beyond yet reusing what is developed and running on SOA Suite.

This architecture presents the end state of moving an EBS instance to OCI along with the integration built with SOA Suite in a secure setup and the components needed to connect Oracle Integration with SOA Suite and EBS. This architecture also shows integration with Oracle Financials Cloud.

Architecture

This architecture shows the deployment of Oracle E-Business Suite in a single availability domain inside a single Oracle Cloud Infrastructure region, along with existing integrations built using Oracle SOA Suite. Oracle Integration connects to SOA using the Integration connectivity agent to provide reuse of integrations built with SOA and connectivity to other SaaS applications and cloud technologies.

The architecture includes two compartments, both of which have Cloud Guard enabled to provide maximum security based on Oracle’s security best practices. In addition, the compartment where the database system and the autonomous database private endpoint are deployed is a security zone compartment.

Each compartment contains a virtual cloud network (VCN), which are connected through a local peering gateway, allowing network traffic between the two. Components are in different subnets and fault domains to provide high availability. The databases are accessed only through the bastion host and the application virtual machines (VMs) are accessed through the load balancers.

The database and the application instances that are deployed in their private subnets on OCI are backed up to OCI Object Storage by using a service gateway. A service gateway provides access to Object Storage without traversing the internet. You can use the automatic and on-demand database backups feature to back up applications and the database.

Use a network address translation (NAT) gateway to enable outbound connection from the application instances in the private subnets to the Internet to download patches and apply operating system and application updates. With a NAT gateway, the hosts in private subnet can initiate connections to the Internet and receive responses, but don’t receive inbound connections initiated from the internet.

Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) & octet-stream MIME-type by Amy Simpson-Grange

image

I was recently working on an integration in Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) which leveraged REST APIs exposed from Oracle HCM. I needed to retrieve details from the REST endpoint in the image below. The overall solution would take this REST response and write the data to an XML file to be consumed by another system.

REST Endpoint

Response headers: Content-Type = application/octet-stream

As you can see in the REST response headers above, the content-type of the response is application/octet-stream. This response type has been supported by the Oracle Integration REST adapter for a couple of years now and is configurable in the trigger request and response allowing the possibility to both invoke REST integrations using binary content and return binary content in a REST response.

What is application/octet-stream MIME attachments?

Effectively, a MIME attachment with the content type “application/octet-stream” is a binary file. Usually, the MIME attachment is an application file or document that may be opened in specific applications. For example, a spreadsheet .xlsx file would open in Microsoft Excel, a .docx file would open in Microsoft Word or an .exe file would indicate a Windows or DOS executable program. However, the application/octet-stream MIME type is used for unknown binary files and is in fact the default binary file. File contents will be preserved in binary but it requires the processor to understand and determine the specific file type (e.g, from a filename extension).

Using application/octet-stream in OIC

This feature can be used by selecting the “Raw” option within the invoke Request/Response page when configuring the REST adapter. Read the complete article here.
