Setting Up Oracle E-Business Suite Integrated SOA Gateway

Setup Overview

Oracle E-Business Suite Integrated SOA Gateway can be set up either on an existing installation of Oracle WebLogic Server or on a newly installed Oracle WebLogic Server. Before the installation, you must first understand the product dependencies.

Product Dependencies

Oracle E-Business Suite Integrated SOA Gateway depends on the following products to provide its functionality for SOAP-based web services:

Important: REST-based web services are developed with the infrastructure of Oracle E-Business Suite and they do not depend on Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Applications Adapter.

For information on how to install Oracle SOA Suite 12c, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Installing and Configuring Oracle SOA Suite and Business Process Management.

For information on how to install Oracle SOA Suite 11g, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Business Process Management Suite.

For information on how to configure, troubleshoot, or upgrade Oracle E-Business Suite Integrated SOA Gateway from earlier releases, refer to the following documents:

After configuring Oracle E-Business Suite Integrated SOA Gateway, administrators should set the required profile options and assign appropriate roles to users which allow them to perform design-time operations, monitor the Web services and view logs. The next sections on assigning roles and setting profile options explain these features.

Assigning User Roles

Oracle E-Business Suite Integrated SOA Gateway uses the following user roles to perform needed administrative and user tasks. Each user role is associated with a specific responsibility by default to access the Integration Repository. A system administrator can assign these user roles to appropriate users if necessary.

For example, users who have the Integration Analyst role can access the Integration Repository through the Integration Repository responsibility. They can browse integration interfaces and services as well as view each interface details through the Integration Repository user interface.

Users who have the Integration Developer role can access the Integration Repository through the Integrated SOA Gateway responsibility. They can view each interface through the repository, and also annotate custom integration interfaces based on annotation standards.

Users who have the Integration Administrator role can perform all user and administrative tasks in the Integration Repository through the Integrated SOA Gateway responsibility. These tasks include browsing and viewing each integration interface and service, generating, deploying, and undeploying services, as well as retiring active services, activating retired services, and resetting services.

To assign a user role:

  1. Log in to Oracle E-Business Suite as a user who has the User Management responsibility.

  2. Select the Users link from the navigation menu.

  3. Enter appropriate information in the search area to locate a desired user account. Click Go.

  4. Click the Update icon next to the user with 'Active' account status to open the Update User window.

  5. Click Assign Roles.

  6. In the search window, search for either one of the following user roles:

    Choose a desired role and click Select.

  7. Enter a justification in the Justification filed and click Apply.

    You will see a confirmation message indicating you have successfully assigned the role.

For more information on assigning or revoking user roles, see the Oracle E-Business Suite Security Guide.

Setting Profile Options

The following table lists the profile options used in Oracle E-Business Suite Integrated SOA Gateway:

Profile Option Description Required Default Value
FND: XML Gateway Map Generic Service Use this profile option to display or hide the generic XML Gateway service information for the selected XML Gateway map.
  • If it is set to 'Yes', the Generic XML Gateway Service subregion is displayed within the Web Service region in the XML Gateway Map interface details page.

  • If it is set to 'No', the Generic XML Gateway Service subregion will not be displayed in the XML Gateway Map interface details page.

Yes Yes

Important: If you do not start from this release and you have been using generic XML Gateway Web service, set the profile option to 'Yes'. This allows the Generic XML Gateway Services subregion to be displayed within the Web Service region. Otherwise, subregion will not be shown and any invocations of generic XML Gateway Web services will return a fault message.

ISG: Generic Service WSDL URL for XMLG Once a generic XML Gateway Web service has been deployed, the deployed service WSDL URL is populated as the profile value and the URL is also displayed in the 'Generic XML Gateway Service' subregion.
If the generic service is not deployed, the profile value will not be shown and hence no WSDL URL is displayed in the subregion for the selected XML Gateway interface.
Yes N/A

Use the FND: XML Gateway Map Generic Service profile option to display generic XML Gateway service information contained in the subregion only if your system is upgraded from a previous release and you have been using generic XML Gateway Web services.
