Prerequisites for Creating a Connection

Before you set up the Oracle Utilities Adapter:

  • Upload a trusted public certificate (if required). Typically, the certificate is included with Oracle Integration. See Upload an SSL Certificate.

  • Make sure the Oracle Utilities server is running and accessible.

  • Know the host name address and port number of the Oracle Utilities server.

  • Know the user name and password used to access the Oracle Utilities server.

  • Download the connectivity agent. See Download and Run the Connectivity Agent Installer in Using Integrations in Oracle Integration Generation 2.

OAuth Security Policies

If you are using one of the OAuth security policies, you must already have registered your client application to complete the necessary fields on the Connections page. The Basic Authentication and No Security Policy security policies are exempted.

Before a client application can request access to resources on a resource server, the client application must first register with the authorization server associated with the resource server.

The registration is typically a one-time task. Once registered, the registration remains valid, unless the client application registration is revoked.

At registration time, the client application is assigned a client ID and a client secret (password) by the authorization server. The client ID and secret are unique to the client application on that authorization server. If a client application registers with multiple authorization servers (for example, Facebook, Twitter, and Google), each authorization server issues its own unique client ID to the client application.


For OAuth configuration, read the provider documentation carefully and provide the relevant values.
