Oracle Integration with Assets

After integrating Oracle Integration – Process Automation with Oracle Content and Experience, you can create structured multistep workflows for review and approval of content items and digital assets that you manage in Oracle Content and Experience asset repositories.

Oracle Content and Experience provides a quick start application package with several multistep processes that you can deploy to your Oracle Integration instance and start using for asset review and approvals. Alternatively, you can use these processes as samples to develop custom processes that meet specific requirements in your organization. For example use cases, see Use Seeded Content Workflows in Managing Assets with Oracle Content and Experience.

To download the quick start application package and set up the processes for use:

  1. In the Oracle Content and Experience web user interface, on the Content > Content Workflows page, click the OCE QuickStartApplication link to download a zip file.

The application is imported as QuickStart Master, You have the option to change the name before you promote it to be a QuickStart application:

  1. Without any changes, click Promote.
  2. In the Promote to Gallery as a Quick Start App dialog, enter a snapshot name and then click Promote.
  3. After the process completes, click Close in the dialog.
  4. Click Close in the main window.

Now you can create another QuickStart application and use that application to create multiple process applications:

  1. On another Process Applications page, click Create.
  2. On the Start with a QuickStart tile, click Browse.

    In the Gallery, you should now see the application sample you just created (for example, OCEThreeStepApplication).

  3. Click Create for that application. Enter a name, and then click Create.

    An overview page for the new application displays.

  4. Click Configure.
  5. Click Update your OCE Connection URL here. This is mandatory.
  6. In the Address field, replace OCEURL with your Oracle Content and Experience instance URL (copy and paste from your instance in a web browser).

    So you'll end up with something like https://instance.url.oraclecloud.example.com/content/management/api/v1.1 .

  7. Click X to close the page.

There is no need to modify anything else at this point. You can click Switch to Application View and then click the name of an application (for example, OCEThreeStepProcess). The application process opens in a process flow visualizer.

You could modify the roles here. Make sure to click Save if you make any changes.

To deploy an application, click the house icon in the top left to go to the OIC home page, and then follow these steps:

  1. Click My Tasks in the left navigation pane.
  2. Click Administration in the left navigation pane.
  3. Click Manage Credentials.
  4. Click Add new credential. Enter the user name and password for your Oracle Content and Experience repository administrator. You'll use this keystore when you activate the application.
  5. Go back to the home page.
  6. Click Processes > Process Applications.
  7. Click the name of a QuickStart application.
  8. On the application overview page, click Publish.
  9. In the Publish Application dialog, enter a comment, if necessary, and then click Publish.

To activate the application, follow these steps:

  1. Click Switch to Application View.
  2. Click Activate.
  3. On the Activation tab, click Activate new version.
  4. In the Activate Application to My Server dialog, click Customize.
  5. Select the keystore credential you created for the Oracle Content and Experience repository administrator.

    This will populate the user and password fields.

  6. Click Validate.
  7. If there are no errors, click Options.
  8. Add the version (for example, 1.0) and then click Activate.

    This will deploy the process application in Oracle Integration and make it available in Oracle Content and Experience.

  9. Click Finish after the application is activated successfully.

After the application is registered, have your Oracle Content and Experience content administrator use the Oracle Content and Experience web interface to make the workflow available for use, registering it, assigning it to a repository, adding members, and assigning workflow roles. Then Oracle Content and Experience content contributors can use the workflow to get approval for their content.
