How to use Pick action in OIC Orchestration by Sumeet Singh

image

REST Adapter in its current version only publishes a single resource with a single verb in the inbound. Also, there can only be a single source within an integration flow. This is somewhat restrictive as the users have to create multiple integrations (each with a separate resource URI) for related resources and verbs.

Let’s say someone has a requirement to create, update and delete a resource. Naturally, the expectation is that there would be a single resource which can be manipulated with different HTTP verbs. This is not possible with REST adapter and in the current version, users are forced to create multiple integrations for performing these different operations.

Pick is a solution to this. Have a look at how your pick integrations will look in canvas.

PICK is protected with ‘ oic.cloudadapter.adapter.rest.mvrp ‘ feature flag. Check this link on how to enable feature flag. Read the complete article here.

Fetch Email attachments using Microsoft Email adapter in Oracle Integration Cloud by Ankur Jain

image

In the article, we’ll show how to fetch the attachments from email and dump the attachments on the SFTP server.

To complete this article, we should have in place:

  1. MS email connection: If not created, use the post to create a connection with Microsoft outlook
  2. FTP connection: If not created, use the post to create a connection with FTP

Below is the end to end use case which is demonstrated in the article:

  • Fetch the emails from MS outlook
  • Extract the attachments from each and every email
  • Dump all attachments on the SFTP server

Let’s go ahead and see how to achieve this

  • Create a scheduled integration with name "GetAttachments"
  • Drop the Microsoft Email adapter just below the scheduled activity. The configuration wizard will be opened. On the very first screen enter below information and click the Next button. Read the complete article here.

OIC Integration with Netsuite – initial setup and basic troubleshooting by Niall Commiskey

image

It’s always good to try new things, so here I am checking out OIC integration with Netsuite.
This post covers the following –

1. Creating a new user in Netsuite, giving them login permissions and assigning roles.
2. Activating that user in Netsuite for web services access.
3. Creating a connection to Netsuite in OIC, leveraging the user created.
4. Creating a simple integration to Netsuite – Contact Creation.
5. Troubleshooting – what permissions does my user need to create a contact in Netsuite. Read the complete article here.

Integration, Process and Visual Builder by Jin Park

OIC makes integration easy with ODI

We know OIC (Oracle Integration Cloud) is capable of file based integration for ERP over API.
And we do know that ODI (Oracle Database Integrator from Data Integration Platform Cloud) is capable of ingesting large file and processing it for ERP through the database layer aka ETL / ELT.

Okay, what if those cloud services work together and give you a simple pattern which can be applied to typical use case such as large number of big files integration with ERP through the database layer.

Following scenarios would be typical integration use case scenarios;

Financial transaction records from branches / retail merchants come in large number of big files
Files have to be ETL / ELT before cut-off time
Business / IT want to know what’s happened for last batch job processing or current job happening
Financial transaction records have to be kept for certain periods for internal audit and legislative requirements

Now let me show how those integration use cases are implemented by OIC and ODI.

Firstly ODI (Oracle Database Integrator) will do take heavy workloads such as ingesting large files, transforming raw transaction records and load them to target database. Luckily OdiInvokeWebService Tool is available for ODI as an API and Integration (from OIC) will invoke this API. Read the complete article here.

A brief look at the evolution of interface protocols leading to modern APIs by Luis Weir

image

Application interfaces are as old as the origins of distributed computing and can be traced back to the late 1960’s when the first request-response style protocols were conceived.  For example, according to this research, it wasn’t until the late 1980’s when the first popular release of RPC (described below) was introduced by SUN Microsystems (later acquired by Oracle), that internet-based interface protocols gained wide popularity and adoption.
This is perhaps why the term Application Programming Interface (API) even today can often result in ambiguity depending on who you ask and in what context. This is probably because of the fact that historically the term API has been used to (and to a degree continues to) describe all sorts of interfaces well beyond just web APIs (e.g. REST).
This article therefore attempts to demystify (to an extend) the origins of modern web-based APIs. This is done by listing and describing in chronological order (as illustrated below) the different interface protocols and standards that in my view have had major influence to modern web-based APIs as we know them today (e.g. SOAP/WSDL based web services, REST, GraphQL, gRPC to name a few).

Provisioning Oracle API Platform Gateway Nodes using Terraform and Ansible on AWS by Kevin King

image

When using Oracle Autonomous API Platform, an API gets deployed to a logical gateway.  The logical gateway consists of one or more nodes which are instances of the runtime, installed on physical machines, virtual machines, or cloud infrastructure.  The gateway nodes handle the processing of the API requests, but a load balancer is still required to distribute traffic between the nodes.  When performance becomes an issue, more nodes can be added to increase throughput.  Providing an automated way to manage nodes ensures consistency of configurations and the ability to easily add and remove nodes.

The gateway nodes can be installed on-premise or in the cloud, and are not restricted to the Oracle cloud.  This allows for customers who are already using AWS to host their micro-services, to use Oracle’s API Platform platform to be able to monitor and expose their APIs on a central location.  The API Platform portal, provides a central location deploy, activate, deprecate, and secure APIs while having complete visibility of the usages and KPI monitoring.

In this blog, I’ll describe how I’ve created an automated way to provision, configure, and register new API gateway nodes, running on Amazon EC2 into the API Platform using Terraform and Ansible. Read the complete article here.
