PeopleSoft Integration using Oracle Integration Cloud – Part 1 by Prakash Masand & Jin Park

image

Customers at events, at forums, and through field requests have indicated that they want to integrate PeopleSoft with Oracle and non-Oracle Cloud applications using Oracle Integration. PeopleSoft provides a great integration framework tool set that simplifies, standardizes, and supports a variety of integration patterns. We want to share the enlightened experience that our integration champion Jin Park from Australia had when integrating PeopleSoft with Oracle Integration.

Here is part 1 of Jin Park’s journey.

I’ve got a chance to look at PeopleSoft integration with other SaaS app using OIC (Oracle Integration Cloud) and decided to share what I learned.

If you’re not familiar with PeopleSoft, please visit PeopleSoft Information Portal. You will see that it covers lots of things. Read the complete article here.

User Friendly Names in Mapper by Ishruthilaya Malarvizhi

image

In this blog, we will look at a new integration feature, User Friendly Names in the Mapper UI and see how the Mapper UI has changed with the introduction of this feature. The new feature will become available shortly. The Source and Target tree elements displayed in the Mapper UI are based on the application schemas. Many application schemas define their interfaces with extremely cryptic technical names that are not easy to correlate to the user friendly display names you would see in the end point application’s UI.
This feature provides the option to show display label instead of the technical name directly in the trees and expression builder.

The feature is supported for all types of integration. Currently the below application adapters are supported with the user friendly names generation when configuring the trigger/invoke:

  • Oracle HCM Cloud
  • Oracle Engagement Cloud
  • Oracle ERP Cloud
  • REST
  • Salesforce

Convert Basic Routing style Integration to Orchestration style by Renukaradhya Dakshinamurthy

image

Convert Integrations Style from Basic Routing to App Driven Orchestration.

The Basic Routing Integrations are deprecated now and currently, there is no way to convert a Basic Routing Integration to Orchestration. With this new feature, the user will be able to do the conversion from Basic Routing to App Driven Orchestration as the latter has more flexibility. The convert can be done with the help of "convert" action provided in the actions menu which is explained in detail in the below sections.

Prerequisites:

The minimum Oracle Integration version required for the feature is “20.36330”.

What happens during the conversion of Basic Routing style to Orchestration

During the conversion of Basic routing to Orchestration, the process goes through each and every entity of the ProjectModel( or flow) of Basic Routing and does a conversion to the corresponding entity of Orchestration style. The below table gives a brief mapping of the entities. Read the complete article here.

Enhanced Integration with your Business Partners using OIC AS2 Adapter by Michael Meiner

image

Introduction to B2B Integration using AS2

What is B2B integration? Business-to-business (B2B) integration is the automation of business processes and communication between two or more organizations. It allows them to trade more effectively with their customers, suppliers, vendors and business partners by automating key business processes using B2B based data exchange including EDI. Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is a standard means of exchanging data between companies so that they can transact business electronically.

As part of the B2B Data exchange customers and their partners mutually agree on a:

· Document format like X12, UN/EDIFACT

· Transport protocol like AS2, sFTP

AS2 is a key transport protocol that is very popular worldwide used for B2B data exchange. It is a specification for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between organizations using the internet. AS2 uses Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME), which secures data with authentication, nonrepudiation and encryption. The transportation protocol for this specification is HTTP and HTTPS for real-time communication. S/MIME secures data with authentication, message integrity and nonrepudiation.

Oracle Integration Connectivity Updates by Prakash Masand

image

Oracle Integration continues to enhance the connectivity portfolio by building a new set of adapters as well as enriching the existing adapters with the key customer focused enhancements. Oracle Integration adapters are the corner stone for connecting and automating application business processes. Oracle Integration Adapter abstracts communication with diverse applications on a single pane, simplify integration interfaces as business resources and supports rapid development through configuration and declarative model rather than complex coding.

In the endeavour of building robust and diverse connectivity portfolio, Oracle Integration August release will offer two brand new adapters viz. PayPal Adapter & OCI Streaming Service.

New Adapters
Paypal Adapter

Paypal Adapter is the newest addition to the E-commerce segment of adapters and shall enable Oracle Integration customers to connect and automate their web store business processes. In the stated release Paypal Adapter shall support outbound invoke to execute the REST APIs enabling Integration developer to perform CRUD operations on the Paypal exposed business resources. As an example while order is being manufactured you may want to authorize a payment that you can capture later on successful delivery of the order.

Paypal Adapter connection page requires two sets of information to establish connection with the Paypal environment. First you would need to select the environment type i.e. Sandbox / Live so that adapter can connect to the appropriate endpoint. Read the complete article here.

August 2020 Update & New Release Cycle by Antony Reynolds

image

Well it is update time again, and we have new features for you and a new release cycle. New features include a New Home Page, Data Stitch and new Adapters. The new release cycle will provide a more predictable update for your instances.

Release Cycle

We are introducing a new release cycle into Oracle Integration. We will be releasing new functionality every 3 months, in February, May, August and November. We are doing this to make it easier for customers to know when their instances will be updated and what new features they will be getting. We chose February, May, August and November because these are the months most Fusion Apps customers update their Fusion Apps instances. We will be doing additional releases to provide security patches to our platform but we will generally not be providing new functionality except at the quarterly update.

We are working with OCI customer notification services to improve our ability to warn you of updates ahead of time. We are sending emails and adding notifications in the OCI console. We know that emails get lost because our inboxes are too full, or the addressee has left the company, in addition a lot of customers always go direct to the OIC console. To accommodate mis-routed or overlooked emails and to support customers who rarely go into the OCI console we are working on enhancements to OIC console to provide information about upcoming or recently completed updates. This in-OIC notification will not be available for the August release but will be in a future release.

New Features

There are a number of new features in the August release.

New Home Page

When you log into an Oracle Integration instance, the first page you see is the OIC Home Page. This page helps you navigate to the areas of the product you need, provides relevant metrics and status and shows your current tasks and actions. We have redesigned the Home Page for Generation 2 instances to provide the most relevant information as well as to expose new functionality in the product. Read more about it in this blog by my colleague Michael Meiner.

Data Stitch

Often customers need to manipulate an existing message. The Map activity replaces the target message with a new message, this does not allow us to accumulate results for example. The new Data Stitch will allow us to iteratively update a message. There are a number of blogs available for you to get a preview of what is coming: Read the complete article here.

OIC and Integrating Oracle SaaS by Phil Wilkins

image

Handling integration between Oracle SaaS applications and modules has been something of an evolutionary journey. A couple of years ago if you wanted to integrate say HCM and ERP you needed to ICS or OIC to perform the integration.

In many respects this wasn’t such a terrible thing. Technically as it meant that the back end database schema development for each app was not going to be slowed by needing to be mutually dependent with each other. As a result avoiding the complexities of managing a canonical model and ensuring any changes to that model are delivered in a manner that aligns across multiple development teams plans.

Although you can see from a marketing position it might not have seemed so great, as the customer incurs more cost and development effort to realize a process of managing people (HCM) and paying them (ERP) for example.

Things have moved on, and as long as SaaS apps reside in a Global Single Instance (GSI) (i.e. same region, account and deployment) then for the major products (e.g. ERP, CX, HCM, etc) are internally integrated so a person change in HCM will propagate to ERP as necessary. This certainly reduces the need for integration, saving effort (and the cost of needing OIC). Read the complete article here.

Jump-start your Integrations with the new Oracle Integration Home Page by Michael Meiner

image

When you log into an Oracle Integration instance, the first page you see is the OIC Home Page. This page helps you navigate to the areas of the product you need, provides relevant metrics and status and shows your current tasks and actions. We have redesigned the Home Page to provide the most relevant information as well as to expose new functionality in the product.

Note: What we describe here is the new Home Page for Oracle Integration Generation 2 instances. For older Oracle Integration instances, the Home Page will remain the same for now (until of course, your instance is upgraded to Generation 2).

Here’s a preview of the new Home Page:

The first thing you will notice is the ability to try a recipe. Recipes are pre-assembled solutions to help jump-start your integration development. You can try out one of the recipes highlighted here, or search for others. More about recipes later.

Next is the Summary section where you are presented with the following:

My Tasks gives you information on your assigned open and total Process tasks. See here for more information on how to view tasks and manage your work.

Processes tells you how many process instances are in progress and completed. Click on this card to access your Process Applications. See here for more information on automating processes with Oracle Integration. Read the complete article here.
