February 2021 Oracle Integration Update by Antony Reynolds

image

It is time for the February quarterly update to Oracle Integration. Lilly, the Oracle integration mascot, has lots of exciting new features and improvements to share with you. Note that testing is still underway for these features and, although unlikely, it is possible that some will not meet our quality standard and be deferred to a later release.

Announcements & Update Windows

Currently tenant administrators get notified of OIC Gen 2 updates via notifications in the OCI console. OIC Gen 2 administrators can also see the same upgrade notice in the OIC console, so watch out for the date of your upgrade.

Remember, you can also mark your Gen 2 instance for update in either the first or second upgrade window, as explained in Choose Your Update Window. If you previously tagged your instance, then there is no need to tag it again. If it is not yet tagged for window 1, then the deadline for tagging for February is 14 January. Tags added after this date will take effect for the May release.

API Led Integration

We are making it easier to work with Oracle API products. Previously we supported only Oracle API Platform. We are now building out support for Oracle API Gateway. Read the complete article here.

To learn more about Oracle Integration and its sub-parts then check our blog posts, containing all the key points a beginner should know about Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC).

What Is Process Cloud Service?

Oracle Process Cloud Service is used for process automation, its a subscription-based cloud service for process automation. Allowing you to easily extend your existing SaaS and On-Premise.

PCS offers insights and management of business processes, and a full lifecycle process management environment including development, test, and production.

Process Cloud Service Overview

PCS offers rapid design, automate, and manage business processes in the cloud.

It utilizes two work environments the design-time environment used for developing and testing applications, and the runtime environment used for monitoring process applications.

Design-Time Environment:
  • User-friendly UI for designing process, rules, forms, data, and metrics
  • Includes QuickStart Apps to quickly create custom business applications
  • Provides test environments for refining and testing processes
  • Allows process applications (metadata and data) from cloud to on-premises
The Runtime Environment:
  • Makes it easy for you to view, complete, reassign, and delegate tasks
  • Lets you stay organized with filters
  • Lets you share documents and collaborate with others on your team
  • Provides tools to track process flows, view detailed audit trails, troubleshoot, and fix processes

The design-time environment is also called Composer, and the runtime environment is also called the Workspace. The terms design time and Composer, and runtime and Workspace are used interchangeably throughout this guide.

PCS Composer Page

When you click Develop Processes on the Home page, the Composer page opens.
The Composer page is a core component of the design-time environment. It provides access to common application-related features.

When you sign in for the first time, the system automatically creates a default space called My Space which will be used for creating the process. Read the complete article here.

OIC – Oracle Field Service via REST by Niall Commiskey

image

Yes, there is an Oracle Field Service Adapter in OIC and yes, it provides compelling functionality in respect of common use cases, such as the one described in the OFS adapter documentation – This scenario describes the interaction between the Oracle Field Service and an application that receives and processes alerts for municipal services.

• A municipal employee receives an alert on the municipal services monitoring application indicating that there is a natural gas leak near a busy downtown intersection.

• The municipal employee creates a work order to dispatch a service team to the site. All details necessary to locate the natural gas leak are included in the work order.

• The municipal employee saves and submits the work order on the municipal services monitoring application.

• The work order is sent to the Oracle Field Service Adapter.

• The Oracle Field Service Adapter creates a matching activity in Oracle Field Service and returns the activity identifier to the municipal services monitoring application to allow the progress of the work order to be monitored. Read the complete article here.
