Prepare the Oracle E-Business Suite Purchasing Instance

This example uses the Oracle E-Business Suite Purchasing application to approve a purchase order. Before creating a connection, you must prepare the Oracle E-Business Suite Purchasing instance to ensure the required setup or configuration is in place.

  1. Configure Oracle E-Business Suite REST services provided through Oracle E-Business Suite Integrated SOA Gateway.

    Follow the setup tasks, as described in My Oracle Support Knowledge Document 556540.1, to configure Oracle E-Business Suite Integrated SOA Gateway Release 12.1.3 and apply the REST service patches to enable the REST service feature. For more information, see step 1, as described in Setup Tasks for Enabling the Oracle E-Business Suite Adapter.

  2. (Optional) Import TLS certificates of Oracle Integration to Oracle E-Business Suite if required.

    For information on importing TLS certificates, refer to step 4 as described in Setup Tasks for Using the Oracle E-Business Suite Adapter as a Trigger (Source) Connection.

  3. (Optional) Set up proxy URLs in Oracle E-Business Suite if required.

    For information on the proxy setup, refer to step 2 as described in Setup Tasks for Using the Oracle E-Business Suite Adapter as a Trigger (Source) Connection.

  4. Deploy the Metadata Provider API as a REST service with the following requirements and grant the method access privileges to the operations user:

    • Deploy the API with "provider" as the service alias name

    • Deploy the API with GET HTTP verb for all the methods contained in the API

    • Grant the access privileges for all the methods contained in the Metadata Provider API to the operations user
