Integration, Process & Insight – Netsuite Data Sync Use Case by Niall Commiskey

image

OIC is a toolkit – 4 main tools:

· Integration – connect your apps

· Process – intelligent human workflows – can be used to extend apps or for your own custom processes.

· Insight – analyze what’s going on in Integration and Process, but this from a business user perspective. More details below.

· Visual Builder – create net new apps on top of your apis.

For those who haven’t seen Insight before – the OraDocs provide the following succinct description of what it offers – Integration Insight in Oracle Integration provides a business-friendly experience, allowing users to model, collect, and monitor business-level metrics using web-based dashboards. Integration Insight works with business processes that are implemented using the Integrations or Processes features in Oracle Integration. At a high level, Integration Insight provides:• A web-based interface to:
– Model business processes, including milestones
– Map models to a business processes implementation
– Monitor business progress through dashboards
• Efficient workflow requiring no development effort and minimal impact to runtime.
• Advanced analytics presented in both preconfigured and custom dashboards.
The following example leverages 3 of the OIC tools – Integration, Process and Insight in the context of a Netsuite data synchronisation use case. Please see my previous post here, for details of leveraging Visual Builder on top of Netsuite. Read the complete article here.

OIC Connectivity Agent by Daniel Teixeira

Timagehe OIC connectivity agent is the answer for a secure hybrid deployment, where you have a mix of cloud and on-premise applications and need to ensure a secure communication.

The agent is the handler/listener that manages both inbound/outbound communication. This ensures that there is no need to open a port in the on premise firewall.

Fortunately Mordac is not a Product Manager for OIC:)

1. Create an Agent Group
The agent group is a logical group to which we can associate the physical agents installed on premise. Very simple to create one – Just provide a name and a description.

2. Download and Run the Connectivity Agent Installer

On the same place where you created the agent group, download the connectivity agent. Let’s stop for a second and look to the system requirements. Read the complete article here.

A Simple Guide to Oracle HCM Data Loader (HDL) Job Support in Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter by Prakash Masand, and Asawari Pawar

image

Oracle Integration continues to simplify integrations with Oracle HCM Cloud by adding native support to more and more Oracle HCM integration touch points. Oracle Integration now supports Oracle HCM Data Loader (HDL) jobs, a powerful tool for bulk loading data through integrations. Using Oracle HDL, you can load business objects for most Oracle HCM Cloud products into Oracle Integration. For example, you can load new hires from Oracle Talent Acquisition Cloud (Taleo EE) as workers into Oracle HCM Cloud using an Oracle HDL job. To learn more about Oracle HDL jobs, refer to this blog.

The Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter in Oracle Integration simplifies the way an integration specialist invokes an Oracle HDL job process and monitors the status of the job. The Oracle HDL job can load data into business object from delimited data (.dat) files. Integration architect can generate the delimited data files in Oracle Integration using business object template files provided by Oracle HCM Cloud. Read the complete article here.

Security Improvements for Database & FTP Adapters by Michael Meiner

image

Overview

Oracle Integration (OIC)  has a rich set of security capabilities to enable our customers to connect applications and technologies in a secure manner. We continue to enhance Oracle Integration to provide additional security settings and functionality. In the November 2020 release, Oracle Integration offers new security-related functionality for the Database and FTP adapters.

The features discussed here include:

  • Integration with ATP Serverless configured with Private Endpoint
  • Support for Wallet based authentication with privately hosted databases
  • Automatic Database Wallet and Password refresh
  • Message payload security capabilities with privately hosted SFTP servers

Two of these features involve use of the Oracle Integration Connectivity Agent. Using the connectivity agent, you can create hybrid integrations and exchange messages between applications in private or on-premises networks and Oracle Integration.

1. Integration with ATP Serverless configured with Private Endpoint

Autonomous Database (ATP) is becoming more widely adopted, along with its use within integration flows using OIC. When configuring your Autonomous Database, you can specify that it use a private endpoint within your VCN in your tenancy. This allows you to keep all traffic to and from your Autonomous Database off of the public internet. When using the ATP adapter in Oracle Integration to connect to an ATP instance using a private endpoint, you need to set up the connectivity agent. Inside the connection details for the ATP adapter, there are 2 options for security: JDBC Basic Authentication and JDBC over SSL. When selecting JDBC over SSL, you are prompted to enter the wallet and wallet password. Prior releases of Oracle Integration do not allow you to use the JDBC over SSL (wallet) option with the connectivity agent. In addition, Username-token policy is not supported by ATP Serverless, This means that there were no options for integrating OIC with ATP-S with the connectivity agent. Read the complete article here.

How to use the OCI Object Storage from the Oracle Integration Cloud by Daniel Martins Teixeira

image

The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) offers a great set of services that can be very useful in combination with the Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) for a wide variety of use cases. Things like the Object Storage, Oracle Streaming Service, Functions etc, can easily be accessed from OIC. The OCI ecosystem has a rich set of API’s that can be used for that purpose – https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/en-us/iaas/api/#/

In this post I am going to show how to create a file in the Oracle Object Storage.

What is the Object Storage

“The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage service is an internet-scale, high-performance storage platform that offers reliable and cost-efficient data durability. The Object Storage service can store an unlimited amount of unstructured data of any content type, including analytic data and rich content, like images and videos.”

Traditional integration use cases rely heavily on File Servers and SFTP access as an harbour for files. Object Storage and similar services are picking up fast in replacing them. We see more and more customers leveraging the benefits of these services for the handling of all different types of content that need to be stored and moved.

How to Start

Before jumping to the Integration Cloud, we need to create an object storage bucket and we need API signing keys. Read the complete article here.

Oracle Integration – Adapter Enhancements to Non Oracle Applications by Arvind Venugopal

image

Overview

Oracle Integration (OIC) has a rich set of security capabilities to enable our customers to connect applications and technologies in a secure manner. We continue to enhance Oracle Integration to provide additional enhancements and features on existing Application Adapters.

In the November 2020 release, Oracle Integration added the following capabilities to third party application adapters:

  • Salesforce Adapter:  Enablement for Salesforce Government Cloud Customers
  • ServiceNow Adapter: Graceful downgrade of User Experience
  • PayPal Adapter Inbound Support and New Modules
  • Shopify Adapter New Modules

Salesforce Adapter:  Enablement for Salesforce Government Cloud Customers

In the recent past, the Salesforce Adapter was enhanced with the elimination of the need to upload the enterprise WSDL on the Connections page. With this enhancement the customers, who were using the Salesforce Government Cloud, were unable to create new connections due to login considerations as mentioned in this help document. With the November release, the Salesforce Adapter provides support to create a connection of the Salesforce.com application that can integrate with Salesforce Government Cloud.

You simply need to select the target Salesforce instance type as Government and provide your custom domain name and API version on the Connections page. So let’s start with a quick tour of the new field on the Connection page: Read the complete article here.
