Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter Capabilities

The Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter enables you to create an integration with Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud applications. You select business objects that an integration receives from Oracle HCM Cloud as a request and as a response.

The Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter enables customers to easily integrate their on-premises or SaaS applications with Oracle HCM Cloud without having to know about the specific details involved in the integration.


Only use supported SOAP services. See Business Object Services of Cloud SOAP Web Services for Oracle HCM Cloud.

The Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter provides the following benefits:

  • Integrates easily with the Oracle HCM Cloud application’s WSDL file to produce a simplified, integration-centric WSDL.

  • Generates automatic mapping to the exposed business object that you select during adapter configuration as a trigger connection. A business object represents a self-contained business document that can be acted upon by the integration. An integration can send requests to create a new record for that business object. They can send a request either to update or delete an existing record for a business object. Integrations can also send requests to retrieve information about one or more records representing that business object.

  • Supports consumption of the Oracle HCM Cloud REST API. This enables the Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter to consume REST services under Oracle HCM Cloud when configured as an invoke connection.

  • Automatically handles security policy details required to connect to the Oracle HCM Cloud application.

  • Provides standard error handling capabilities.

  • Enables you to map business objects that have polymorphic data structures.
