Create a Connection

Before you can build an integration, you have to create the connections to the applications with which you want to share data.

To create a connection in Oracle Integration:

  1. In the left navigation pane, click Home > Integrations > Connections.

  2. Click Create.

    Note:

    You can also create a connection in the integration canvas of:
  3. In the Create Connection — Select Adapter dialog, select the adapter to use for this connection. To find the adapter, scroll through the list, or enter a partial or full name in the Search field and click Search iconSearch.

  4. In the Create Connection dialog, enter the information that describes this connection.

    1. Enter a meaningful name to help others find your connection when they begin to create their own integrations. The name you enter is automatically added in capital letters to the Identifier field. If you modify the identifier name, don't include blank spaces (for example, SALES OPPORTUNITY).
    2. Enter optional keywords (tags). You can search on the connection keywords on the Connections page.
    3. Select the role (direction) in which to use this connection (trigger, invoke, or both). Only the roles supported by the adapter are displayed for selection. When you select a role, only the connection properties and security policies appropriate to that role are displayed on the Connections page. If you select an adapter that supports both invoke and trigger, but select only one of those roles, you'll get an error when you try to drag the adapter into the section you didn't select. For example, let's say you configure a connection for the Oracle Service Cloud (RightNow) Adapter as only an invoke. Dragging the adapter to a trigger section in the integration produces an error.
    4. Enter an optional description of the connection.
  5. Click Create.

    Your connection is created. You're now ready to configure the connection details, such as connection properties, security policies, connection login credentials, and (for certain connections) agent group.
