Manage Custom Applications

You can create custom applications using the Application Integration Framework (AIF).

With custom applications, you can change the menu options your users will see, add pop-up dialogs as needed, call third-party services, and specify how the results are presented to the user.

For details about creating applications using AIF, see Application Integration Framework Overview in Developing for Oracle Content and Experience.

After creating an application, you can add it to Oracle Content and Experience and manage it from the Administration interface.

  1. After you sign in to the Oracle Content and Experience web application as an administrator, click Integrations in the Administration area of the navigation menu.

  2. On the Integrations page, choose Applications.
  3. To add an application, click Add next to Custom Actions, navigate to the configuration file that contains the application information, and select it.

  4. After adding the application, you can enable or disable it by selecting or clearing the check box.

For details about creating applications using AIF, see Application Integration Framework Overview in Developing for Oracle Content and Experience.

After you add your application and enable it, you can manage it by clicking the appropriate icon for any of the following actions:

  • View information about the application. What is shown is set by the application’s info application property (for example, a popup window).

  • Set the preferences for the application. What is shown is set by the application’s tenantPrefs property.

  • Edit the application. You can alter the application’s code and click Load to test the application, save the application, or cancel your edit. Syntax errors will be identified, as well as some information about basic issues, such as allowed actions.

  • Download the application. You can save the application or open it using an editor of your choice.

  • Remove the application. When you delete an application, it is not moved to your trash. You will need to add the application file again if you want to use it.

When an application is disabled, you can only edit the application, download it, or delete it.

To view the preferences for all enabled applications, open your user menu, click Preferences, and then, in the Preferences menu, choose Applications. The preferences information is defined in the application itself, so it may launch a dialog or get information, but only as defined. You can view the information for the application and the preferences. The Applications option is not shown in the Preferences menu unless at least one application is enabled.
