Oracle Learning Management Extensions for Oracle Endeca Product Configuration

Oracle Learning Management Extensions for Oracle Endeca Product Configuration

Once you have completed installation and common configurations as described in Installing Oracle E-Business Suite Extensions for Oracle Endeca, Release 12.1.3.4 document (Doc ID: 1562372.1), you must complete the Oracle Learning Management Extensions for Oracle Endeca product configuration setup as detailed in this section.

Setting Up Oracle Learning Management Extensions for Oracle Endeca Product Configuration

To set up Oracle Learning Management Extensions for Oracle Endeca Product Configuration, complete the following steps:

  1. Add the Learner Endeca Catalog Search (OTA_LRNR_ENDECA_ACCESS_ROLE) role to any predefined or custom Learning Self-Service responsibility.

    See: Oracle E-Business Suite System Administrator's Guide - Security for more information on how to assign roles.

    See: Installing Oracle E-Business Suite Extensions for Oracle Endeca, Release 12.1.3.4 document (Doc ID: 1562372.1) for more information on roles in Oracle E-Business Suite Extensions for Oracle Endeca.

  2. Run the Full Load Configuration Graph.

    See: Running the Full Load Configuration Graph

  3. Schedule the set up for Incremental Endeca Refresh.

    See: Setting Up the Scheduler to Load Incremental Graphs

Loading Oracle Learning Management Extensions Data into the Endeca Data Store

Clover ETL within Endeca queries Oracle Learning Management Extensions Views and does a full data load to the ota-objects data store in Endeca. After the first data load, full data load or incremental data load can be performed periodically. Incremental data load will update all the records in Endeca Learning Management Extensions data store which were updated in EBS after the last load. After the data has been loaded in the Oracle Learning Management Extensions data store, it can be queried and shown in the Oracle Learning Management Extensions pages.

Oracle Learning Management Extensions Data Sources

The following data sources are defined in the Learning Management Extensions data store in Endeca and are used to query data in different tabs in Learning Management Extensions. These data sources include:

Running the Full Load Configuration Graph

Once you have run the full load graph in accordance with the Installing Oracle E-Business Suite Extensions for Oracle Endeca, Release 12.1.3.4 document (Doc ID: 1562372.1), attribute configuration is loaded for all seeded attributes. Additionally, you need to run the following full data loads as follows:

To run the Full Load Configuration Graph

  1. Login to Integrator server using your Clover login.

  2. Click the Scheduling tab.

  3. Select the New Schedule link.

  4. Enter a Description for the scheduler, for example, Learning Management Full Load Scheduler.

  5. Select Periodic as the Type.

  6. Select by interval as the Periodicity.

  7. Enter a start date and time in the Not active before date/time field.

  8. Enter an end date and time in the Not active after date/time field.

  9. Enter a value in the Interval (minutes) field.

  10. Ensure you select the Fire misfired event as soon as possible check box.

  11. Select Execute graph from the Task Type list.

  12. Select ota-objects from the Sandbox list.

  13. Select graph/FullLoadConfig.grf from the Graph list.

  14. Click Create to set the scheduler.

Setting Up the Scheduler to Load Incremental Graphs

Once the Full graph is run in accordance with the Installing Oracle E-Business Suite Extensions for Oracle Endeca, Release 12.1.3.4 document (Doc ID: 1562372.1), initial data load for Learning Management is complete. For incremental refresh, you must determine how often the Endeca data should be refreshed from EBS depending upon your organizational requirements. Oracle recommends that you keep this near real time. As the data is updated in the EBS, you need to ensure it is updated in the endeca MDEX server. You set up the Scheduler to load incremental graphs depending on the volume of information requiring update.

To set up the scheduler

  1. Login to Integrator server using your Clover login.

  2. Click the Scheduling tab.

  3. Select the New Schedule link.

  4. Enter a Description for the scheduler, for example, Learning Management Incremental Load Scheduler.

  5. Select Periodic as the Type.

  6. Select by interval as the Periodicity.

  7. Enter a start date and time in the Not active before date/time field.

  8. Enter an end date and time in the Not active after date/time field.

  9. Enter a value in the Interval (minutes) field.

  10. Ensure you select the Fire misfired event as soon as possible check box.

  11. Select Start a graph from the Task Type list.

  12. Select ota-objects from the Sandbox list.

  13. Select graph/IncrementalLoadConfig.grf from the Graph list.

  14. Click Create to set the scheduler.
