27 Configuration

This chapter describes how to find and update operational settings in the Oracle Service Bus (OSB) Administration Console, as well as configure global setting such as monitoring, alerts, reporting, logging, and result cache. This chapter also describes how to set display options in the OSB Administration Console.

You use the Configuration module to locate and manage proxy services, business services, alert destinations, SLA alert rules, and the runtime tracing for proxy services.

You can specify operational settings for all services, at the service and global level, and use the global settings to turn on and off monitoring, SLA alerts, and, for proxy services only, pipeline message reporting and pipeline message logging.

27.1 Finding and Updating Operational Settings

Use the Smart Search page to easily locate proxy services, business services, alert destinations, and SLA alert rules. Additionally, you can use the Smart Search page to specify service-specific operational settings, with the following exceptions: you cannot set an aggregation interval or specify an alerting or logging severity level. For more information, see Section 26.8, "Configuring Operational Settings for Proxy Services" and Section 26.9, "Configuring Operational Settings for Business Services."

The runtime effects of the service-level settings depend on their corresponding global settings. You must enable both the global and the service-level settings for a service to be completely enabled at runtime. Additionally, the service State must also be enabled. See Section 27.2, "Enabling Global Settings."

You can enable or disable operational settings only from within a session.

27.1.1 Finding All Services (Proxy and Business Services)

To find all proxy and business services:

  1. Select Operations > Smart Search.

  2. From the Type list, select All Services, then click Search. The Summary of All Services page displays the information shown in Table 27-1.

  3. To restrict the number of items in the list or locate specific services:

    • Click the Open icon to display additional search filters. If you specify multiple search criteria, only results that match all the criteria will be returned.

    • Filter by service name. In the Name field, enter the name of the search target or enter wildcard characters (use * and ? as wildcard characters to perform a more general search), then click Search.

      This search method is preferable if the name of the service is unique across all projects and paths.

    • Filter by service path. In the Path field, enter the path of the search target, which is the project name and the name of the folder in which services reside. You can use * and ? as wildcard characters to perform a more general search. All the services that reside in that path are displayed.

      The format for the Path field is as follows:

      project-name/root-folder/ . . ./parent-folder
      

      If a service is directly under the project, the format is as follows:

      project-name
      
    • Filter by service name and path. This search method is preferable if there is more than one service with the same name that reside in different paths.

    • Filter by service state. From the State list, select the state of the service: Enabled or Disabled, then click Search. Select All to ignore the service state filter criteria.

    • Filter by service monitoring. From the Monitoring list, select the monitoring status of the service: Enabled or Disabled, then click Search. Select All to ignore the service monitoring filter criteria.

    • Filter by service's SLA Alerts setting. From the SLA Alerts list, select the SLA alerts setting of the service: Enabled or Disabled, then click Search. Select All to ignore the service SLA alerts filter criteria.

27.2.11 Enabling Result Caching Globally

If you invoke business services whose results seldom change, result caching improves business service performance by returning cached results to the client instead of waiting for the results of a service invocation.

Before configuring result caching for individual business services, you must first enable results caching globally using the following steps. The default setting for result caching is enabled.

  1. If you have not already done so, click Create to create a new session or click Edit to enter an existing session. See Section 3.1, "Using the Change Center."

  2. Select Operations > Global Settings.

  3. Select the Enable Result Caching check box.

  4. Click Update to save all of the settings on this page.

  5. Alternatively, click Reset at any time during the session to discard your changes and refresh the page with the currently stored settings.

  6. To end the session and deploy the configuration to the runtime, click Activate under Change Center.

For information on configuring result caching for business services, see Section 19.2.23, "Message Handling Configuration Page."

27.2.12 Disabling Result Caching Globally

When you disable result caching globally, Oracle Service Bus flushes the entire cache, removing cached results for all business services with result caching enabled. The default setting for result caching is enabled.

To disable result caching at the domain level:

  1. If you have not already done so, click Create to create a new session or click Edit to enter an existing session. See Section 3.1, "Using the Change Center."

  2. Select Operations > Global Settings.

  3. Clear the Enable Result Caching check box.

    Note:

    This setting overrides any result caching configured on individual business services.

  4. Click Update. The configuration is saved in the current session.

  5. Alternatively, click Reset at any time during the session to discard your changes and refresh the page with the currently stored settings.

  6. To end the session and deploy the configuration to the runtime, click Activate under Change Center.

27.3 Setting User Preferences

Use this page to customize and persist your Administration Console display options and settings. You can update (change) your User Preferences without activating a change session.

Table 27-7 describes the options and controls on the page.

Table 27-7 User Preferences - Options and Controls

To... Do This...

Change your Home Page, the page that opens when you launch the Administration Console

From the first list, select any main menu choice: Operations, Resource Browser, Project Explorer, Security Configuration, or System Administration.

From the second list, select any one of the sub-menu choices. (The contents of the sub-menus dynamically change based on your first menu selection.)

Display Search Filters

Select Yes or No.

By default, search filters are not displayed (closed). By selecting Yes, search filters are always displayed (open).

Display Stage Annotations

Select Yes or No.

By default, pipeline stage annotations are not displayed (closed). By selecting Yes, stage annotations are always displayed (open).

Display Resource Metadata

Select Yes or No.

By default, resource metatdata sections are displayed (open). By selecting No, resource metatdata sections are not displayed (closed).

Change how often the Administration Console updates the display of data on the Dashboard

From the Dashboard Refresh Rate list, select No Refresh, 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 20, 30 or 60 minutes as the refresh rate for the Dashboard.

The default rate is No Refresh, but you can select another predefined time. For example, if you select 5 minutes, the Dashboard is updated with data every 5 minutes.

Caution: By selecting a dashboard refresh rate interval other than the default (No Refresh), the browser refreshes the Dashboard at regular intervals. This prevents your session from timing out, even without you interacting with the Administration Console. Oracle recommends that you use the Dashboard refresh rate feature with caution. You should never leave an Administration Console session unattended. While your Administration Console session is active others can gain access to it from your computer, without re-authentication.

Change the time interval for displaying historical data for alerts on the Dashboard

From the Alert History Duration list, select 30 minutes, 1, 2, 3, or 6 hours as the time interval for displaying historical alert data. The default is 30 minutes (displays alerts received within the last 30 minutes) but you can select another predefined duration. For example, if you select 1 hour, the Dashboard displays the alerts received within the last hour.
