Convert from Schedule to REST based integration by Vijay Kendai

image

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

Currently in Orchestration, after a trigger has been added, the user does not have the ability to replace it with another trigger. The user essentially has to re-create the integration to achieve this. With this feature, users will be provided with the ability to replace a trigger with minimal impact and without having the need to re-construct various actions in the canvas. After conversion, users will be provided with appropriate warnings and errors to take any corrective action needed, to bring the integration to a configured state.

What is covered ?

In the first phase, only scheduled orchestrations will be addressed.

  • Schedule trigger will be allowed for replacement only with a REST trigger.

What is not covered ?

  • Replacing schedule in Scheduled orchestrations with REST trigger having multiple verbs
  • Replacing trigger in App driven orchestrations

Details

The following section describes in detail how a schedule can be converted to a REST trigger.

On clicking the schedule node, user will be provided with a menu option under more actions to convert to a REST based trigger as shown below. Read the complete article here.

Reactivate All Integrations Together that Use the Same Connection 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). Read the complete article here.

OIC & OCI API Gateway Integration: Quick and Easy by Varinder Kaur

image

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

If you are interested in OCI 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.

Embedding Oracle Integration Insight dashboards : Quickly and Easily by Sandhya Lakshmi Gopalan

image

Integration Insight in Oracle Integration empowers business users by providing a real-time view into their business processes. In addition to viewing Insight dashboards within the Oracle Integration console, Insight offers the capability to embed business dashboards in other applications.

For example:

  • If your business involves order management and you already have your business users using Oracle Cloud ERP to manage your orders, you can embed Insight dashboards for the order process in Cloud ERP. This provides business users with a single consolidated view within Cloud ERP, without needing to sign into Oracle Integration to view the Insight dashboards.
  • If you have a financial business process, with a front-end application that is used by business users, Insight dashboards can be embedded in the front-end application to show real-time business process metrics that can assist in making business decisions.

Integration Insight provides two ways to embed dashboards in other applications:

  • A URL builder for embedding dashboards in an iFrame.
  • Oracle JET Composite Component Architecture (CCA) components for embedding dashboards as HTML elements. Read the complete article here.

Linking OCI to ServiceNow via Oracle Integration by Michael Chen

imageIntroduction

Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) is often used to connect to SaaS apps such as Salesforce and ERP. In my case, that app is a ServiceNow developer instance. Common integration patterns involve sending data between SaaS apps, whether in a one-to-one or multi-pronged approach. However, it is also possible to set up integration with OCI services that emit events. This is commonly done through the use of Oracle Functions, a "serverless platform that lets developers create, run, and scale applications without managing any infrastructure." The general structure of such an approach is the following:

  • Some OCI service emits an event
  • An OCI Event is configured to capture this event
    • This event is linked to a function, which is triggered
  • An OCI Function invokes an integration

Design Overview

Use case: manage cloud compute networks using ServiceNow tables. A customer wanted to manage the VMs that they created in various clouds using their ServiceNow account, which they were already familiar with. The idea here is that their ServiceNow tables would automatically sync with their cloud environments to reflect the state of all the VMs in their cloud networks. Here is an example: suppose I have three Oracle VMs and one GCP VM. One of the Oracle VMs is terminating, and another Oracle VM is stopped. On my ServiceNow table, called cmdb_ci_vm_instance_list, I will see four entries: one online Oracle VM, one offline Oracle VM, one terminated Oracle VM, and one online GCP VM. Now, suppose I provisioned a new GCP VM and restarted the offline Oracle VM. The ServiceNow table should automatically update to show two online Oracle VMs, one terminated Oracle VM, and two online GCP VMs. Finally, if I were to drill down into one of these entries, I would be able to view some basic information such as date of creation, VM shape/image, CPU count, etc. Read the complete article here.

An easy way to handle the Oracle ERP Callback when importing data by Daniel Teixeira

image

One of the main benefits of using the Oracle ERP Adapter is the capability to easily receive the Callbacks of a previously triggered FBDI job. Triggering the FBDI job is great, but without knowing the result, the whole process lacks consistency.

This post will focus on the Callback. Have a look at this one, that covers the mechanism to Import files into ERP.

Enable Callback

We need to modify the Import Integration from the previous post, and that is selecting the option Enable Callback. This is quite simplified now. In the past we would need to refer to the Integration Name and Id for this to work. Now, the CallBack is an Event published by ERP. Then we create a new Integration to handle the Callback.

February 2021 Oracle Integration Fusion Application Adapters Enhancements by Prakash Masand

image

Oracle Integration is a customer preferred Integration platform for Integrating with Oracle Fusion Applications viz. ERP Cloud, Engagement Cloud, and HCM Cloud. Oracle Integration Feb 2021 update brings in even further functional enrichments to the already feature-rich Oracle Fusion Application adapters and continues the lead as a customer choice of platform for integration.

In February 2021 update we are pleased to announce the following updates to the Oracle Fusion Application adapters:

1) Support for EFF/DFF flex fields in REST resources

Oracle Fusion applications support associating descriptive (a.k.a. DFF fields) or extensible (a.k.a. EFF fields) flexfield with which you can create custom attributes for the business objects. As customers define, associate, and leverage DFF & EFF fields for enriching the business objects, the real value of enriched business objects is reaped only when the enriched information is exchanged seamlessly to and fro between Oracle Fusion Cloud applications and the rest of business applications in customer footprint. Please note this capability has been enhanced for ERP Cloud and HCM Cloud adapters. Read the complete article here.

Edit XSLT Source Code in OIC Mapper UI by Ishruthilaya Malarvizhi

image

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

Previously the XSLT source code corresponding to a map, was available in read only mode in Mapper UI. With this new feature, the editing of the XSL source code is allowed in the Mapper UI in the ‘Code’ tab like below:

This action is useful for use cases in which mapping is not possible in the graphical mapper. This eliminates the need to export your XSLT code from Oracle Integration, edit the code manually in a text editor or in a separate graphical tool such as Eclipse or Oracle JDeveloper and then re-import the code into the mapper in Oracle Integration.

Some examples of the use cases in which the mapping not possible in the graphical mapper and the editing in the Code tab can be used are:

  • Create internal variables using <xsl:variable>
  • Correlate multiple sources grouped by key fields using <xsl:for-each-group> Read the complete article here.
