Integrate with Oracle Visual Builder

You can allow your users to access Oracle Visual Builder Cloud Service functionality. Oracle Visual Builder Cloud Service (VBCS) is a hosted environment for your application development infrastructure. It provides an open-source standards-based integration to develop, collaborate on, and deploy applications within Oracle Cloud. This enables users to rapidly create web and mobile applications with minimal to no coding.

Note:

  • Integration between these services requires SSO, so both services must be in the same identity domain.

  • Only administrators with the enterprise user role can enable integration with VBCS. If you aren’t an enterprise user, the Visual Builder Cloud Service Integration option is grayed out.

On the VBCS side, the following must be done before this feature can be used with Oracle Content and Experience:
  • Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) must be enabled on the VBCS site. See Allow Other Domains Access to Services in Administering Visual Builder in Oracle Integration Cloud.

  • Apps must be created and made available for embedding. See Creating a New Web Application in Using Visual Builder in Oracle Integration Cloud.

  • The apps must be configured for use with Oracle Content and Experience. See Embedding the Application in Using Visual Builder in Oracle Integration Cloud.

  • Web applications must be created and made available for embedding in an iframe.

  • The Sites SDK must be imported.

  • The Sites SDK must be referenced in the web applications.

  • A page URL parameter called “id” must be added to the web applications.

On the Oracle Content and Experience side, you need to configure integration with VBCS:

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

  2. In the Settings menu, click Integrations.

  3. Under Oracle Integrations, select Visual Builder Cloud Service Integration to enable the service.

  4. Enter the Service URL of the Oracle Visual Builder Cloud Service.

    Note:

    If you have Universal Credits subscription, you must include ic/builder in your Service URL. For example, https://vbcsserver.example.com/ic/builder.

After both services have been configured for integration, Oracle Content and Experience users can create components for your VBCS apps and add them to site pages. See Oracle Visual Builder Cloud Service in Building Sites with Oracle Content and Experience.
