Enable Announcements for Oracle Integration

As an administrator, create a policy that sets your tenancy to display system announcements to Oracle Integration users, giving them timely, important information about service status. This is a one time action that applies to all Oracle Integration instances in the tenancy.

How do announcements work?
  • For administrators: Administrators can view announcements in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure console by clicking Announcements Announcements icon at the top of the screen. The icon shows a green dot when there are new announcements to view. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Oracle Integration announcements are displayed in this window.

    For information about console announcements, the types of information they contain, and viewing options, see Console Announcements. Also see this topic for information about managing email delivery of announcements. Note that Oracle sends announcements to the default tenancy administrator email address on record. If you want to change the default tenancy administrator email address on record, contact Oracle Support.

  • For users: After the policy described below is set, Oracle Integration users click Announcements icon at the top of their screen to view an announcements window listing past and ongoing announcements related to their Oracle Integration instance. Announcements are refreshed every hour. See View Oracle Integration Announcements in Getting Started with Oracle Integration Generation 2.

To set the Oracle Integration announcements policy:
  1. In the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure console, select Identity, then Policies.
  2. From the Compartment list, select the root compartment.
    Pick a Compartment list expanded to display a hierarchy of compartments

    The announcements policy must be created at the root compartment.
  3. Click Create Policy.
  4. In the Create Policy window, enter a name (for example, AnnouncementsPolicy) and a description.
  5. Complete the policy's Statements field, entering the following statements.
    Under Policy Builder, choose Show manual editor.

    allow service integration to {ANNOUNCEMENT_LIST} in tenancy

    allow service integration to {ANNOUNCEMENT_READ} in tenancy

  6. Click Create.
    The policy statements are validated and syntax errors are displayed.
  7. Go to Oracle Integration and verify that announcements are now displaying in the anouncements window.
