Define Milestones

Milestones are a key abstraction in an Integration Insight model. They are points in a business process that represent progress and map to at least one action in the business process implementation.

A Business User/Analyst defines milestones, in collaboration with an Integration Architect who maps the milestones to actions in the business process implementation.

To define milestones:

  1. In the Oracle Integration navigation pane, click Insight.
  2. In the Insight navigation pane, click Models.
  3. On the Models page, locate the model for which you want to define a milestone. If the model is not in Draft status, hover your cursor over the model and clickActions icon then select Create Draft to create a draft version of the model.
  4. Click the name or Edit icon icon of the draft model for which you want to define a milestone.

    The model designer is displayed.

    • Enter a name and description for the Initial and Terminal milestones if they do not already exist.
    • Click Add a Milestone to define additional milestones for the model.
    • For each new milestone, enter a milestone name and description, and select the milestone type.
  6. (Optional) To delete a milestone, click Milestone actions next to the milestone name, and select Delete.
  7. Click Save.
The milestone is created for the model.
