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.

Using FlexDeploy with Oracle Integration Cloud A Customer Success Story

imageAfter an initial FlexDeploy implementation for E-Business Suite, Oracle SOA Suite, and Enterprise Data Warehouse, one FlexDeploy customer quickly expanded usage across their enterprise. The team’s Applications Manager explained “we saw so much benefit and such immediate gains that we said if we’re going to implement new software, can it work with FlexDeploy? And if it can’t, maybe we don’t want to do it.” Download the case study here.
