Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) team at Oracle OpenWorld 2017

image

 

The Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) team wants you to know that we’re so excited to host our partners and customers at the OAUX Exchange during Oracle OpenWorld 2017 in San Francisco in early October. Get the details on what we’re planning to show and how you can register from our recent post, “Add the OAUX Exchange, a showcase of the future, to your OpenWorld lineup.” Or go straight to our registration page: https://tinyurl.com/OAUXExchange.

If you can’t wait for the Exchange to talk about what the future holds, such as how artificial intelligence (AI) might fit in, we have a new article to share, Machine learning and AI: Can it be the butler that can change user experience? Published online in The Economic Times recently, OAUX Group Vice President Jeremy Ashley writes about the shift in UX that emerging technologies such as AI can bring about.

Our recent roundup of new material on the OAUX Blog also includes a post on researching emerging technology and how that could shape the user experience: “Heading ‘into the wild’ for guerilla research on emerging tech.” There’s more – tools for developers and news about Release 13 are there as well.

JUST FOR PARTNERS

OAUX GVP Jeremy Ashley and OAUX Senior Director Misha Vaughan attend an HCM partner event in London recently. The regional event was attended by about 80 partners and included updates on Release 12, SVP Clive Swan on AI, and UX strategist Richard Twelvetrees on the Digital Agency (re-named the Design Initiative). Jeremy discussed Oracle’s evolving approach to user experience (UX), and Misha highlighted the UX tools available to partners today for extensibility.
“It was exciting to see so many partners well engaged on HCM and to see UX clearly identified as a differentiator for HCM,” Misha said later.

Want a quick look at the action? Check out this video on YouTube.

And for more on those tools in Release 12, learn how to redesign the springboard in just a few easy steps in this recent post.

What’s New for Oracle Process Cloud Service 17.3.3

image

Integration Cloud Service

REST is now supported for Oracle Integration Cloud Service (ICS) integrations.

See Creating Integration Cloud Service Integrations in Using Oracle Process Cloud Service.

CORS support

Oracle Process Cloud Service’s REST APIs and embeddable process UI components support cross-origin resource sharing (CORS).

Web forms

In addition to significant performance improvements, the forms editor includes these enhancements:

· You can now allow users to select multiple rows of a table or repeatable section using the Multiple Selection check box. When this option is enabled to define dynamic behaviors or computed values, additional options are available in a Which? field to specify which values are retrieved. See Configuring Repeatable Sections and Configuring Tables in Using Oracle Process Cloud Service.

· Use new Split and Join text functions to either split a string into an array or join an array into a string. For example, split a series of numbers in a text field into a checklist, or fetch values of all rows within a table column and create a series. See Specifying Functions in Using Oracle Process Cloud Service.

· Payloads now sync. If multiple controls within a form are bound by the same data attribute, either directly or indirectly (through computed values or events), any change to the data attribute is immediately reflected in all associated controls. Repeatable sections or tables bound by the same data attribute are also in sync, where addition or deletion of rows in one control is automatically reflected in the other control.

· You can now set data values from events. When specifying actions for a presentation, use the new Set Data action to set the value of a particular data attribute used in the form. The value is added to the payload. When the event executes, all controls using this data attribute, either directly or indirectly, are updated with this value. See Working with Presentations in Using Oracle Process Cloud Service.

· When defining dynamic behaviors using the Select control, you can fetch the selected option name using the new Selected Label option under the Property field in the Event window. See Configuring Drop-down Select Fields in Using Oracle Process Cloud Service.

· When populating a form, if a field within a section or tab contains invalid data, a validation error is displayed for the field and the entire section or tab is marked invalid.

You can now determine when connector data loads into a control using the new Skip Upon Load option. For example, select this option to prevent connector data being populated into a control when the form loads. See Populating Controls Using REST Calls and Working with Presentations in Using Oracle Process Cloud Service.

Documents and Conversations

Oracle Documents Cloud Service’s name has changed. It’s now known as Oracle Content and Experience Cloud.

What is New for Integration Cloud Service 17.3.3 August 2017

image

“Guide me” visual overlays

When you initially log in to Oracle Integration Cloud Service, overlays are provided on many of the main pages. The overlays guide you on how to perform tasks such as getting started, creating connections, creating integrations, and so on. Click Got it to dismiss the overlays. To enable the overlays again, select Help > Guide Me from the username main menu at the top of the page. See Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

Preseeded samples

When you provision a new instance of Oracle Integration Cloud Service, several sample integrations are automatically included. These fully designed samples help you get up and running quickly and show you how easy it is to activate, invoke, and monitor an integration between endpoints. See Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

Oracle Recommendations Engine for faster data mapping

You can accept the target element recommendations of the recommendations engine when creating mappings. This eliminates the need to analyze and perform each individual source-to-target mapping. You must enable the Oracle Recommendations Engine to use this feature. See Using the Oracle Mapper.

On-premises connectivity agent enhancements

The following agent enhancements are provided:

· Installation is supported on Linux Server release OEL7.

· Authentication support is provided for outbound proxy access.

· Agent automatically stops polling decommissioned instances. A 24 hour period of inactivity occurs with the agent stopping polling altogether on the decommissioned instance.

· Notification emails can capture agent status.

· Performance and resiliency improvements are provided around quiescing endpoints when Oracle Integration Cloud Service is unavailable. Automatic unquiescing is provided when Oracle Integration Cloud Service becomes available. See Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

Orchestrated integration enhancements

The following orchestration enhancements are provided:

· The stage file action is provided to read (and remove any trailer), write, zip, unzip, and list files in a staged location known to Oracle Integration Cloud Service (for example, process each file downloaded by the FTP Adapter). This action is only for scheduled orchestrations. See Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

· The Read File in Segments option of the stage file action enables you to specify a file chunking size. Chunking files enables large files to be processed, one logical chunk at a time. This option is only for scheduled orchestrations. See Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

· The scope action is provided to manage a group of actions with a scope action. The scope action is essentially a collection of child actions and invokes that can have their own fault handlers. You can also catch faults in scopes. See Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

· The raise error action is provided to throw an error and send failed messages to the error hospital for further analysis. This action is only available inside a fault handler. See Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

· The logger action is provided to log messages to the activity stream and diagnostic logs by adding the logger action at any point in the integration. See Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

· The for-each action is enhanced to include a Process items in parallel option that enables you to concurrently process data in scheduled orchestrated integrations. See Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

· Updates to variables declared outside of the for-each action Process items in parallel option and the stage file action Read File in Segments operation are provided.

· The function call action is provided to add JavaScript functions to an integration. See Using Libraries to Manage Functions for Integrations and Adding a Function Call Action of Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

· Tracking support has been enhanced:

· Tracking support is provided for actions and global faults on the instance tracking pages and in the audit trail.

· Tracking support is provided for customizable fields.

· Tracking variables can be accessed and updated inside orchestrations.

· The activity stream is viewable on the Tracking Details page.

· The Tracking page shows tracking variables and the starting and ending times of an instance.

See Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

· Visual repositioning (move) of nodes in orchestrated integrations is provided. See Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

· Ability to define fault handlers for named business faults that are defined by any one of the invoked endpoints in the scope or globally. When you add invokes to a scope, the named faults associated with the invokes are added for selection to the Fault Handler section of the scope. These are faults that the invoke can handle. See Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

· Aggregation and sending of errors to external services is provided. Oracle Integration Cloud Service includes a predefined fault object for fault aggregation. This object enables you to catch and aggregate faults in the context of parallel processing in scheduled orchestrated integrations and to send these faults to an external service to define more granular error handling. See Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service. See Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

Scheduler orchestration enhancements

The following scheduler enhancements are provided:

· Set schedule parameters that determine how to batch and read data received from a source location. You then use these parameter values downstream in the integration.

· Show the reason why a scheduled flow is not running (for example, blocked, waiting, ready, paused, or cancelling).

· Support multiple schedule frequencies for running integrations.

· Past and current runs are viewable from the Monitoring page. See Using Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

FTP Adapter enhancements

The following FTP Adapter enhancements are provided:

· Support for public key authentication.

· The following operations to perform on files when configuring the FTP Adapter in an orchestrated integration:

· Download File: Specify a directory to use for staged activity. Use this directory to stage large files for processing.

· List Files: List the names of the files in the input directory. See Configuring Connection Security and Configuring FTP Adapter Invoke Operations Properties of Using the FTP Adapter

SOAP Adapter

The following SOAP Adapter enhancements are provided:

· SAML token-based authentication support for protecting inbound SOAP endpoints. The SAML security policy is used to configure the SOAP Adapter as a trigger to enable asynchronous invocation and callback authentication from ERP/DOO services primarily.

· Exposure of asynchronous SOAP endpoints with callback support. This enables you to invoke SOAP web services that have an asynchronous interface – (request with an asynchronous callback). See Using the SOAP Adapter.

Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter

Oracle Global Human Resources Cloud delivers representational state transfer (REST) APIs to support your integration requirements. These REST APIs enable easy integration of data into new and existing business process flows. These are intended as user-friendly web services involving transactions of a smaller volume. The Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter now has native support for consuming these REST APIs. You can model Oracle Integration Cloud Service integrations to use Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter to create, update, delete, query, and perform various high-valued actions on a wide range of Oracle HCM resources. See Using the Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter.

image

This is the second article in the Definitive Guide series. This time we take a look at the ability to Schedule an Orchestration integration within ICS has arrived with release 16.4.5 release of ICS,   To demonstrate this, we are going to reuse our FlightSitRep endpoint from the book’s Chapter 3. If you have not got the book yet – it’s a WSDL one way integration that is connected to Mockable.io.

Creating Scheduled Orchestration

From the Integrations screen we need to click on the New Integration button, and select the Orchestration pattern in the pop-up dialogue. The first thing we will see when creating an integration is the Create New Integration dialog, as shown here: Read the complete article here.

For Each activity for processing batches – ICS Definitive Guide #1 by Robert van Molken

image

This is the first blog in our ICS Definitive Guide series. In this series we pick one feature that ICS offers and write the most detailed guide on it. This blog introduces the capability of processing batches using the For Each activity in orchestration type integrations.

These blogs follow the same writing style as the book. We sometimes use the same resources as we used in the book, which can be downloaded from the website of Packt. For this blog we are using the same WSDL as we used in chapter 5, Going Social with Twitter and Google, and as in chapter 10, Advanced orchestration with branching and asynchronous flows, but with a little change to one element.

The integration we are going to build simulates a notification send from our Airport Flight Schedules system with a list of persons that are missing / late for their flight. For each flight a list of persons are included in the notification. For each missing person a task is added to a Trello Board, used by the ground personal, to remove the passengers luggage from airplane. Read the complete article here.
