OIC and Integrating Oracle SaaS by Phil Wilkins

image

Handling integration between Oracle SaaS applications and modules has been something of an evolutionary journey. A couple of years ago if you wanted to integrate say HCM and ERP you needed to ICS or OIC to perform the integration.

In many respects this wasn’t such a terrible thing. Technically as it meant that the back end database schema development for each app was not going to be slowed by needing to be mutually dependent with each other. As a result avoiding the complexities of managing a canonical model and ensuring any changes to that model are delivered in a manner that aligns across multiple development teams plans.

Although you can see from a marketing position it might not have seemed so great, as the customer incurs more cost and development effort to realize a process of managing people (HCM) and paying them (ERP) for example.

Things have moved on, and as long as SaaS apps reside in a Global Single Instance (GSI) (i.e. same region, account and deployment) then for the major products (e.g. ERP, CX, HCM, etc) are internally integrated so a person change in HCM will propagate to ERP as necessary. This certainly reduces the need for integration, saving effort (and the cost of needing OIC). Read the complete article here.

Jump-start your Integrations with the new Oracle Integration Home Page by Michael Meiner

image

When you log into an Oracle Integration instance, the first page you see is the OIC Home Page. This page helps you navigate to the areas of the product you need, provides relevant metrics and status and shows your current tasks and actions. We have redesigned the Home Page to provide the most relevant information as well as to expose new functionality in the product.

Note: What we describe here is the new Home Page for Oracle Integration Generation 2 instances. For older Oracle Integration instances, the Home Page will remain the same for now (until of course, your instance is upgraded to Generation 2).

Here’s a preview of the new Home Page:

The first thing you will notice is the ability to try a recipe. Recipes are pre-assembled solutions to help jump-start your integration development. You can try out one of the recipes highlighted here, or search for others. More about recipes later.

Next is the Summary section where you are presented with the following:

My Tasks gives you information on your assigned open and total Process tasks. See here for more information on how to view tasks and manage your work.

Processes tells you how many process instances are in progress and completed. Click on this card to access your Process Applications. See here for more information on automating processes with Oracle Integration. Read the complete article here.

Oracle Named a Leader for Four Consecutive Years in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service

image

For the fourth straight year, Oracle was named a Leader in Gartner’s 2020 “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS)” report.

Thanks to all partners who supported us by your successful customer projects!

The fast growing iPaaS market demonstrates that enterprises are continuing to invest substantially in their cloud and digital transformation strategies. Oracle believes that its leadership in this market is a testament to the success that large and midsize organizations have achieved with the cost effective, agile connectivity enabled by Oracle Integration.

Oracle Integration runs on Oracle’s highly secure, high performance Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and is a complete and comprehensive application integration service that connects SaaS and on-premises business applications. The service offers prebuilt adapters, prebuilt business accelerators and recipes, as well as machine learning powered auto mapping. In addition, enterprises have access to low code tools for citizen integrations that rapidly deliver business value and simplify the technical complexity of dealing with low-level APIs. Oracle Integration also includes cloud native file transfer, support for B2B e-commerce integrations and business-friendly dashboards to monitor business-level metrics using web-based dashboards.

Oracle’s success stems from being able to eliminate the barriers between business applications through a combination of machine learning, pre-built application integration, visual process automation and intuitive, real-time analytics. Oracle’s embedded AI capabilities, such as self-defining integrations and prediction of SLA violations enable enterprises to execute any number of integration development processes.

“The success our customers have seen on their business transformation journey, speaks volumes to the level of innovation and speed achieved by integration processes,” said Suhas Uliyar, vice president, Digital Assistant and Integration, Oracle. “To us, being recognized as a Leader for the fourth year in a row demonstrates that our customers rely on our partnership to help them continue to gain efficiencies and build business resiliency.”

Thousands of organizations of all sizes, across industries and regions, have adopted Oracle Integration to accelerate their digital transformation by connecting and extending any SaaS, on-premises, or custom application. For customers with on-premises Oracle applications, databases, and middleware, only Oracle offers the ability to move their workloads to the cloud as-is. Customers who have selected Oracle SaaS and are taking advantage of quarterly innovation updates in machine learning, AI, digital assistants, and analytics, can rest assured that their extensions and connections will continue to work. With pre-built adapters for any application, database, or enterprise messaging approach, Oracle Integration offers the speed, ease of use, and full range of connectivity capabilities needed to automate end-to-end enterprise processes.

    Use Oracle Integration to Add Attachments to a Process Instance

    Use Oracle Integration to Add Attachments to a Process Instance by Bogdan Eremiaimage

    The other day it came to my attention that it’s not really straightforward to add attachments to an Oracle Process Instance using the REST API.

    One reason for this is that it requires multipart/mixed media type for the request body message format, and producing this kind format is not so common for JavaScript clients. The JS clients are more used to working with multipart/form-data, the de-facto standard for form-based file upload in HTML.

    One way of overcoming this is to use Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) between the JS client and Process REST API. OIC has a REST Technology Adapter that supports sending/receiving attachments in both multipart/mixed and multipart/form-data media types. The goal is to shape in OIC a REST interface that accepts multipart/form-data, to do a translation into multipart/mixed (alongside with other transformations/actions if required) and to call the Process REST API. Below are the main steps for achieving this.

    1. Create a REST Connection in OIC for Process REST API.

    Go to OIC Homepage > Designer > Connections to create a new connection by selecting the REST Adapter. Read the complete article here.

    OIC: Identity Propagation In Structured Process by Jan Kettenis

    image

    When a process calls a service you sometimes have a requirement that some user identity needs to be propagated to the service call. This article describes how you can propagate the identity (but alas not the principle) of a user on behalf of whom a service call is executed. When calling a service in a structured process you sometimes must pass on the identity of the user that called the service. This could be the case when that service call is done to a SaaS application and it is required to track on behalf of whom that service is called. The identity (user name) only is not enough when authentication must happen using the principle (security token) of the user, but there are applications that can handle this using some combination of a system user (or client id plus secret) with an on behalf of user. And there are situations where having an on behalf of user only is enough, like when storing data in a database table with audit columns (you don’t want all the end users also to be database users so passing on the user’s principle to the DB would not make sense).
    It is not always trivial who that on behalf of user should be. Take for example the following process model: Read the complete article here.
