Create Integrations

Creating an integration includes defining the trigger and invoke application connections, and defining how data is mapped between the two applications. The procedure below provides general instructions for creating an integration, with links to more detailed information for certain steps. As you perform each step, the progress indicator changes to let you know how close you are to completing the integration.

If you want to use a lookup table in your data mapping, create the lookup first. See Creating Lookups for instructions.

To create an integration:

  1. In the navigation pane, click Integrations.

  2. On the Integrations page, click Create.

    The Create Integration - Select a Style dialog is displayed.
    The Create Integration — Select a Style dialog provides options for App Driven Orchestration, Scheduled Orchestration, File Transfer, Basic Routing, Publish to OIC, and Subscribe to OIC.

  3. Select the type of integration pattern applicable to your business needs. See Understand Integration Patterns.

    The Create New Integration dialog is displayed.

  4. Enter the following information:

    Field Description

    What do you want to call your integration?

    Provide a meaningful name so that others can understand the integration. You can include English alphabetic characters, numbers, underscores, and dashes in the identifier.

    Identifier

    Accept the default identifier value. The identifier is the same as the integration name you provided, but in upper case.

    Version

    Accept the default version number of 01.00.0000. Or, if you want to change the version number, enter the version using numbers only in this format: xx.xx.xxxx.

    Integrations are uniquely identified by an identifier and version. Note the version format of xx.yy.zzzz, where xx is the major version and yy.zzzz is the minor version.

    Integrations having the same identifier, but a different major version, can be active at the same time. For example, INT-A/1.00.0000 and INT-A/2.00.0000 can be active at the same time.

    When activating an integration while another integration of the same identifier and same major version is already active, the currently activated integration is deactivated prior to activating the selected integration.

    For example, if two integrations have the following integration states:
    • INT-A/2.00.0000 - Not active

    • INT-A/2.10.0000 - Not active

    Integration INT-A/2.00.0000 is then activated.
    • INT-A/2.00.0000 is now active.

    • INT-A/2.10.0000 is not active.

    Integration 2.10.0000 is then activated.
    • INT-A/2.00.0000 is now not active.

    • INT-A/2.10.0000 is now active.

    What does this integration do?

    Provide a meaningful description so that others can understand the integration.

    Which package does this integration belong to?

    Enter a new or existing package name in which to place your integration. As you enter the initial letters of an existing package, it is displayed for selection. See Manage Packages and About Oracle Integration Packages.

  5. Click Create.

  6. See the following sections based on your selection.
