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.

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.

Choosing Your Update Window by Antony Reynolds

image

Starting in the November Quarterly release we will allow customers to choose between two update windows for their OIC Generation 2 instances.

What is an Update Window?

We currently provide OIC functional updates every quarter. For OIC Generation 2 instances we do this in two windows, usually two weeks apart. Starting with the November release we will allow customers to select the windows in which they wish to be updated. We recommend that non-production instances are updated in the first window and production instances in the second window. This allows customers to sanity check the update before it is applied to production instances.

How Do I Select a Window?

We use the OCI tagging mechanism to identify the window in which an OIC instance should be updated. We currently look at one tag : OIC_UPDATE_WINDOW1. If that tag is set then we update the instance in window 1, otherwise we update it in window 2. Read the complete article here.

Oracle Integration November 2020 update for Oracle Applications Adapters by Prakash Masand

image

Overview

Oracle Integration is one of the most robust Integration platform for Integrating with Oracle Applications may it be Fusion Applications like ERP Cloud, Engagement Cloud or NetSuite and Service Cloud. Oracle Integration November 2020 update continues to build on the momentum of differentiating Oracle Integration platform for integrating Oracle Applications by providing deep functional, simplified and differentiating features. Thus enabling customers to consume business value from Oracle Applications at a rapid pace in continuum with the Oracle applications updates.

In November 2020 update we are pleased to announce following updates to the Oracle Application adapters:

Fusion Application Adapters Improvements

Fusion application adapters are one of they key strategic adapter for the Oracle Integration platform, Oracle Integration continues to update the adapter with the features meeting customer needs and improving overall experience of the adapter. One of such improvement done in November 2020 update is cherry picking child REST resources. This enables Integration architect to pick & chose the child resources that are needed for their businesses. In the absence of this feature Integration architect would end up having all the child resources in the integration artifacts resulting in unmanageable number of elements to traverse through in mapper as well as unnecessary load at the runtime. The second improvement done in the fusion application adapters is support for token based authentication for business events coming from Oracle applications, this will relieve customers from managing Oracle Integration password in the fusion application infrastructure that was required earlier for fusion application to successfully post message on to Oracle Integration.
