Protecting your OIC apis with OCI API Gateway by Niall Commiskey

Introduction

OCI Services add a lot of value add to OIC. I have discussed OCI Functions Service and the OCI Streaming Service in previous posts. Today – my first working day of 2021 – it’s the turn of OCI API Gateway.

I’m sure you are all conversant with what API Gateway gives you. If not, check out the overview here

The Gateway setup was very simple and quick – I just followed the instructions here

This blog post covers the following –

1. Virtualizing a publicly available REST api using API Gateway

2. Virtualizing an OIC API

3.  Adding a Throttling Policy at Deployment level

4. Adding a Request Policy – Query Parameter Transformation

Virtualizing a public REST API via OCI API Gateway

Now to a simple sanity test – I found the following public REST API -  Read the complete article here.

API Gateway Integration: Quick and Easy by Varinder Kaur

imageThis blog is for a new feature coming out in Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) February 2021 release.

If you struggle with API Gateway Integration, then read this blog as it covers the steps needed to seamlessly integrate with API Gateway.

The API Gateway service enables you to publish APIs with private endpoints that are accessible from within your network, and which you can expose with public IP addresses if you want them to accept internet traffic. Now you can create an Oracle OCI API Gateway Deployment from a OIC Rest based Integration. The API deployment will be created with routing rules pointing to the activated integration.

AssumptionOIC user has already created API Gateway or access to API Gateway.
Creating a Deployment from OIC :

· Configure in API Management settings with OCI Signature V1 Policy : Configure the properties – tenancy OCID, user OCID, fingerprint, private key and passphrase(if present). These properties can be found under your profile menu, tenancy and user settings. Click on Save button after configuring the values, it will validate the credentials and save API gateway settings.

· Activate an Integration: Taking the example of a sample integration here- "Echo" integration ( You can build your own integration). Activate the integration by clicking on Activate icon. The below activate dialog will appear.In the activate dialog, there is an additional action of "Activate and Deploy" which will perform two actions- first activate the integration and then deploy it.

Automatic reactivation of Integration after a connection update by Shubham Agrawal

image

This blog is for a new feature coming out in Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) February 2021 release. This blog covers the issue of applying the changed connection properties to the active integrations.

A connection can be used by multiple integration. If connection is updated then Active integrations don’t reflect until they are re-activated. After updating the connection, user currently has to manually go to each integration and re-activate to reflect the updated connection. As an Oracle Integration Cloud user after connection update, user should be able to reactivate all the active integration which are using the same connection.

What does it cover

Users can reactivate the associated integrations for the connection they are trying to update.

User only need to reactivate the integrations if they change connection properties, it does not apply if only primary info is changed, as that would not impact the running integrations.

Now, we can simply reactivate all the associated integrations with a single click, and it will restore the active integrations to its original state (like retain if tracing need to be enabled).

Key Features

Users have option to immediately reactivate the integrations after save or update all the associated resources required to be updated before updating the associated active integrations.

  • User can reactivate integrations along with save with a single button click. To make sure that reactivate works, user should test connection after changing the metadata or credentials of connection. Read the complete article here.

February 2021 Oracle Integration Update by Antony Reynolds

image

It is time for the February quarterly update to Oracle Integration. Lilly, the Oracle integration mascot, has lots of exciting new features and improvements to share with you. Note that testing is still underway for these features and, although unlikely, it is possible that some will not meet our quality standard and be deferred to a later release.

Announcements & Update Windows

Currently tenant administrators get notified of OIC Gen 2 updates via notifications in the OCI console. OIC Gen 2 administrators can also see the same upgrade notice in the OIC console, so watch out for the date of your upgrade.

Remember, you can also mark your Gen 2 instance for update in either the first or second upgrade window, as explained in Choose Your Update Window. If you previously tagged your instance, then there is no need to tag it again. If it is not yet tagged for window 1, then the deadline for tagging for February is 14 January. Tags added after this date will take effect for the May release.

API Led Integration

We are making it easier to work with Oracle API products. Previously we supported only Oracle API Platform. We are now building out support for Oracle API Gateway.

  • Auto-generation of API gateway deployment from OIC
    • You can now create an Oracle OCI API Gateway Deployment from a REST based Integration at the click of a button. The API deployment will be created with routing rules pointing to the activated integration. Integrations with multiple verbs/paths will have a rule created for each verb/path.

Developer Productivity Enhancements

We are making the following improvements for developers:

  • Support for attachments in Integration Test UI
    • The testing tool built within Oracle Integration now offers the support for attachments. This will help developers test Integrations with attachment support without having to leave Oracle Integration UI.
  • Ability to edit XLST code in Oracle Integration Mapper
    • Developers can now edit XLST code within the Mapper while building their Integration flows. This will tremendously help them with complex XLST transformations. Avoiding the need to copy the XSLT and then import it back into the mapper. Read the complete article here.
