Integrating with Oracle Field Service Cloud using ICS REST adapter by Shreenidhi Raghuram

image

Oracle Field Service Cloud (OFSC) helps transform Customer Experience by building efficient field service solutions. It is built on time-based, self-learning, and predictive technology. Oracle Integration Cloud Service (ICS) provides the Oracle Field Service adapter (OFSC adapter) to create inbound and outbound integrations with OFSC. Refer here for OFSC adapter documentation.

The OFSC adapter can be used to create integrations using OFSC as ‘invoke’(outbound into OFSC) and/or ‘trigger’(events flowing from OFSC into ICS). This native OFSC adapter exposes a rich set of operations(for outbound) and events(inbound) for most commonly used business objects. Refer to the below 2 links for the Business Objects and operations/events provided by the OFSC adapter

  • OFSC Invoke operations – link
  • OFSC Trigger events – link

However, OFSC provides a myriad of other REST operations (refer the REST API doc) that can be used to access data stored in Field Service Cloud and integrate with other systems.

This blog will provide details on how the ICS generic REST adapter can be used to build ICS integrations to OFSC.

Using ICS REST adapter with OFSC

The next 3 sections will walk through the REST connection,  Invoke and Trigger configurations required to connect to OFSC using REST adapter. Read the complete article here.

Automate ERP Cloud Batch Uploads using Oracle MFT and Integration Cloud Service by Serene Tan

image

In this blog, we will use Oracle Managed File Transfer (MFT) and Integration Cloud Service (ICS) to automate batch uploads into Oracle ERP Cloud. We will perform this upload with invoices, a typical use-case for organisations that work with numerous vendors and would like their vendors to bulk invoice them through say an SFTP file drop.

Steps are as follows:

  1. Drop the file into an SFTP folder that is managed by MFT
  2. MFT picks it up and uploads it into ERP Cloud’s WebCenter Content file repository
  3. MFT calls ICS to trigger a multi-step orchestration to load ERP Cloud
  4. Using the ICS ERP Cloud adapter, the ICS orchestration first loads the file into staging tables and import the invoice into final tables

Folks who have read my previous blog, Using MFT Cloud Service to Automate HCM Batch Uploads – Part 1 will notice how similar this is to HCM Data Loading, except that we use ICS to orchestrate a few post-load steps.

That is because HCM and ERP Cloud (also SCM and SalesCloud) are all Oracle Fusion Applications, modules built on the same platform. Some of you may even be on “Global Shared Instances”, essentially running both your HCM and ERP SaaSes in the same instance. Read the complete article here.

Using Oracle Managed File Transfer (MFT) to Push Files to ICS for Processing by Sherwood Zern

 

Introductionimage

In a previous article I discussed the use of the Enterprise Scheduler Service (ESS) to poll for files, on a scheduled basis, to read from MFT.  In that article we discussed how to process many files that have been posted to the SFTP server.  At the end of that article I mentioned the use of the push pattern for file processing.

This article will cover how to implement that push pattern with Managed-File Transfer (MFT) and the Integration Cloud Service (ICS).  We’ll walk through the configuration of MFT, creating the connections in ICS, and developing the integration in ICS.

The following figure is a high-level diagram of this file-based integration using MFT, ICS, and an Oracle SaaS application.

Create the Integration Cloud Service Flow

This integration will be a basic integration with an orchestrated flow.  The purpose is to demonstrate how the integration is invoked and the processing of the message as it enters the ICS application.  For this implementation we only need to create two endpoints.  The first is a SOAP connection that MFT will invoke, and the second connection will be to the MFT to write the file to an output directory.

The flow could include other endpoints but for this discussion additional endpoints will not add any benefits to understanding the push model.

Create the Connections

The first thing to do is the create the connections to the endpoints required for the integration.  For this integration we will create two required connections.

  • SOAP connection.  This connection is what will be used by the MFT to trigger the integration as soon as the file arrives in the specified directory within the MFT (This will be covered in the MFT section of this article).
  • SFTP connection: This connection will be used to write the file to an output directory within the FTP server.  This second connection is only to demonstrate the flow and the processing of the file and then writing the file to an endpoint.  This endpoint could have been any endpoint, to invoke another operation.  For instance, we could have used the input file to invoke a REST, SOAP, or one of many other endpoints.

Let’s define the SOAP connection. Read the complete article here.

Agenda Highlights

This session will introduce you to how to use Oracle PaaS services to extend SaaS. It will run 2 full days. We will cover the following use cases as part of hands on labs

Create Procurement Order in ERP Cloud- In an increasing mobile first world, customers would like to use mobile exclusively for getting work done. In this use case you will be building mobile front end (Using MAX) to place orders in ERP cloud. The order will then go through appropriate approval process before order is being placed in ERP cloud. Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) is used to orchestrate order into ERP cloud. The same methodology can be used to talk to other ERP products as well. You will use MCS,OIC & ERP Cloud as part of this use case.

Sales Cloud Extension using VBCS- This use case will cover how to extend the sales cloud using application builder cloud service. VBCS is used by citizen developers with no code experience. You will build an extension to Sales Cloud to allocate budget to opportunity using Application Builder Cloud Service (VBCS). The extension runs as a self contained web application in VBCS. You will also build the MAX application which will reuse the extension you have built in VBCS for which provides native mobile experience for the application extension you have built in VBCS. You will use Sales Cloud, VBCS (Delivered as part of OIC) as part of this use case.

Custom functions to extend ICS transformations – ICS Definitive Guide #4 by Robert van Molken

image

In the second release of 2017 (17.2.5) ICS will introduce the capability of importing and using custom functions. These functions are created using JavaScript and can be used in transformations, expressions and as a action in Orchestrations. In this definitive guide we will go through all ins and outs of this new capability.

Custom functions – a new pillar of ICS

In our book we talked about the pillars of ICS; Connections, Integrations, Lookups, Agents, Adapters and Packages. This release introduced Libraries. A library is a set of Javascript functions. Keep in mind that the JavaScript functions are running server-side so some browser/client-side capabilities/APIs are not available. Functions can’t be created within ICS, but can be uploaded as part of a library in both JS and JAR file (collection of JS files) formats. Read the complete article here.
