New recipes

The following new recipe has been added to Oracle Integration Generation 2 to help you jump start your integration development. Simply install, configure, and activate.

See Recipes: Build Integrations Quickly and Recipes Reference in Getting Started with Oracle Integration Generation 2.

N/A
Integration and Connectivity Features
Feature Description Minimum Version Required
Native activity stream support The feature-rich activity stream helps you view the trail of activities and provides important visibility into the runtime execution of the integration flow. You can use the native activity stream to troubleshoot and diagnose complex integration flow issues. However, Oracle recommends that you use this feature with caution due to performance implications and disable it on production instances.

See View the Activity Stream from the Dashboard Page in Using Integrations in Oracle Integration.

22.2.2
Email notification limit You can send up to 10,000 emails daily from Oracle Integration. When the limit is exceeded, email delivery occurs successfully one last time. For the next (second) delivery, emails stop being sent. You are prevented from sending additional emails until you drop below the 10,000 limit for your 24 hour window.

See Monitor the Number of Emails Sent from Oracle Integration in Using Integrations in Oracle Integration.

22.2.2
Activated integrations limit You can activate up to 700 integrations per Oracle Integration instance. This limit and the number of currently activated integrations are displayed in the System Health section of the Dashboard page.

See View the Dashboard in Using Integrations in Oracle Integration.

22.2.2
Suppression list email addresses The suppressed email addresses are automatically displayed in the Email Suppression List drawer. This eliminates the need to manually search for these addresses.

See Remove Email Addresses from the Suppression List in Using Integrations in Oracle Integration.

22.2.2
HubSpot Adapter - New adapter The HubSpot Adapter is the newest addition to the CRM group of adapters in Oracle Integration. The HubSpot Adapter enables you to connect to a HubSpot instance. The HubSpot Adapter supports outbound invoke connections to execute the REST APIs. This enables you to perform operations such as Create companies, Create products, Update deals, Delete tickets, and others on the HubSpot-exposed business resources.

See HubSpot Adapter Capabilities in Using the HubSpot Adapter with Oracle Integration.

22.2.2
QuickBooks Adapter - New adapter The QuickBooks Adapter is a new addition to the ERP category of adapters in Oracle Integration. The QuickBooks Adapter enables you to connect to the QuickBooks application.

The Oracle Integration supports outbound invokes to execute the REST APIs. This enables you to perform Create, Update, Delete, and Query operations on the QuickBooks-exposed business resources. For example, you can create new records in QuickBooks for the modules such as Account, Bill, Customer, Payment, Invoice, and so on.

See QuickBooks Adapter Capabilities in Using the QuickBooks Adapter with Oracle Integration.

22.2.2
Increased message payload size support The supported message payload size for trigger and invoke connections is 50 MB for endpoints accessed using the SOAP Adapter, REST Adapter, SAP Adapter, File Adapter, and FTP Adapter. This means that an external application can send XML or JSON payloads of up to 50 MB in size to Oracle Integration.

Notes: This increase may lead to additional memory consumption in Oracle Integration. To ensure stability, it is recommended that the percentage of large payloads coming into Oracle Integration should not increase the number of total messages by more than 3%.

See Service Limits in Provisioning and Administering Oracle Integration and Oracle Integration for SaaS, Generation 2.

22.2.2
SAP S/4HANA Cloud Adapter - X509 Auth support The SAP S/4HANA Cloud Adapter provides support for client certificate x.509-based authentication. You must upload your own certificate in Oracle Integration to communicate with SAP S/4HANA Cloud. This adds a layer of security to the authorization process (access to the host) and eliminates the risk of exposing credentials to an unknown entity.

See SAP S/4HANA Cloud Adapter Capabilities in Using the SAP S/4HANA Cloud Adapter with Oracle Integration.

22.2.2
Magento Commerce Cloud Adapter - Search support The Magento Commerce Cloud Adapter now includes search functionality. This feature allows you to perform search operations to get single or multiple records using customized filters. The filter values can be dynamically specified in the mapper.

See Magento Commerce Cloud Adapter Capabilities in Using the Magento Commerce Cloud Adapter with Oracle Integration.

22.2.2
Jira Adapter - Inbound trigger support The Jira Adapter now provides inbound support. You can configure the Jira Adapter as a trigger connection in an integration and process a message from the Jira application to Oracle Integration when certain events occur in Jira (for example, when an issue is updated). This is achieved through Jira Webhooks, which include JQL configuration.

See Jira Adapter Capabilities in Using the Jira Adapter with Oracle Integration.

22.2.2
Zendesk Adapter - Inbound trigger support The Zendesk Adapter provides inbound support. You can configure the Zendesk Adapter as a trigger connection in an integration and process a message from the Zendesk application to Oracle Integration when a ticket is created or updated in Zendesk.

See Zendesk Adapter Capabilities in Using the Zendesk Adapter with Oracle Integration.

22.2.2
Microsoft Office 365 Calendar Adapter, Microsoft Office 365 People Adapter, and Microsoft Office 365 Outlook Adapter - Graph API support Microsoft Office 365 adapters (Microsoft Office 365 Calendar Adapter, Microsoft Office 365 People Adapter, and Microsoft Office 365 Outlook Adapter) are among the most heavily used social and productivity adapters in Oracle Integration. The Microsoft Office 365 Adapters have been upgraded to use the Graph API. This is time critical because Microsoft is decommissioning the Outlook REST APIs starting in November, 2022. Oracle recommends that you migrate your integration flows to use the newer Microsoft Graph APIs.

See Invoke Operations Page in Using the Microsoft Office 365 Calendar Adapter with Oracle Integration, Invoke Operations Page in Using the Microsoft Office 365 People Adapter with Oracle Integration, and Invoke Operations Page in Using the Microsoft Office 365 Outlook Adapter with Oracle Integration.

  • Oracle CX Sales and B2B Service Adapter (formerly the Oracle Engagement Cloud Adapter)
  • Oracle Taleo Enterprise Edition Adapter (formerly the Oracle Talent Acquisition Cloud (Taleo EE) Adapter)
  • Oracle Taleo Business Edition (TBE) Adapter (formerly the Oracle Talent Cloud for Midsize (Taleo BE) Adapter)
22.2.2
Visual Builder Features

This release of Visual Builder uses Oracle JET 12.0.x libraries and components. We recommend that you upgrade your Visual Builder applications to this latest JET version, as well as to the 22.07 Visual Builder Runtime, to take advantage of the full spectrum of 22.07 features.

Among JET 12's many new features is the ability to show dynamic status indicators to your tab bar headers with new icons, badges, and metadata. There's also a new oj-message-banner component that you can use to render brief, semi-permanent messages that communicate information in the context of the current page or actions in progress, without blocking interaction on that page. To see what's new in JET 12.0.x, go to the JET Release Notes and select v12.0.0.

Some new Visual Builder features can’t be used until you’ve upgraded your Visual Builder Runtime. The Minimum Version Required column shows the runtime required to use each feature.

Feature Description Minimum Version Required
Custom actions In addition to VB Studio's palette of built-in actions, you can now use JavaScript to define and implement your own actions. Custom actions can be defined at a web or mobile app-level and you use them in action chains just the way you'd use built-in actions. See Custom Actions.

22.07

New Flow Diagram view When working with flows in the Diagram view, a new Flow Diagram now displays navigational relationships between pages in the flow. The Flow Diagram, different from the standard Diagram view, provides a more intuitive and interactive view that allows you to focus on navigation between pages in the flow. See View a Flow's Navigation in Diagram View.

You can also use this view to create pages and actions chains when you want to build workflows from scratch, just by dragging pages and actions from the Components palette and dropping them into the diagram. A subset of built-in actions (as well as custom actions) are available in the Components palette for you to use in your workflow. See Add Pages and Action Chains to a Flow in Diagram View.

22.07

Fragments
  • Existing fragments in Components palette

    When adding an existing fragment to a page, you can now drag and drop the fragment directly from the Components palette onto the canvas, where previously you had to drop a fragment container before selecting the fragment. This way, a fragment container configured with the selected fragment is automatically created for you. As a part of this update, we've also changed the fragment's Structure view, so you'll see the fragment's name, rather than a generic fragment container, for easier identification. See Create and Add a Fragment to a Page.

  • Fragment metadata

    To provide a richer experience when using fragments, we've introduced metadata settings that enable a developer to better describe their fragments. As a fragment developer, you use this metadata:
    • To surface a fragment in the right context and filter it out where it isn't suitable (for example, to tag a fragment as formTemplate and make it available only to users working with dynamic form templates). See Used For in Manage Fragment Settings.
    • To associate a fragment with icons that display anywhere the fragment is surfaced (for example, when the fragment appears in the Components palette in the Page Designer or the Layout editor). See Icon in Manage Fragment Settings.
    • To control how fragment parameters are to be used inside a fragment by providing the information that VB Studio requires to suitably generate metadata and expressions when the fragment is used in a component. This information can be specified in the Binding Type property that appears anytime a variable or constant parameter in a fragment is marked as enabled or required. See details about Binding Type in Pass Data Between a Page and Its Fragment.

22.07

Components palette enhancements
  • Show Categories and Show Alphabetically options

    We've added two new options to give you more control over how components display in the Components palette. If you want to view a flat list of all components, you can choose to deselect the Show Categories option, enabled by default to show components in categories. If you keep the default, you can choose to view components in alphabetical order or a predefined order (as before). See The Components Palette.

  • New category for existing fragments

    A new Fragments category in the Components palette now displays all existing fragments. To control which fragments show in the palette, you can change a fragment's Used For metadata in the Settings editor. By default, all fragments use the pageContent tag and show in the Components palette. See Manage Fragment Settings.

22.07

Structure view enhancements
  • Shading to highlight visible components in Structure view

    Sometimes, the Structure view might be overwhelmed with information, including components that are not visible on the page at the moment. We've now added shading to the Structure view to indicate which components on the page are currently visible; those not visible fade into the background to provide better context about what part of the page the Structure view represents.

    To further trim background information, you can select a new Show Visible Components Only option. This way, your view only displays nodes of components visible on the page.

  • Show Empty slots is now Show Slots

    The Show Slots option (previously Show Empty Slots) now displays the location of empty as well as occupied slots. You can also right-click a slot and use a new Insert Component option to drop a component directly into a slot.

See The Structure View.

22.07

Changed requirements for Apache Cordovo custom plug-in As part of maintenance for the deprecated but still supported Cordova custom plug-in, we've updated the minimum version of Cordova and iOS required to build hybrid mobile apps. For details, refer to the readme.md file bundled with the Cordova Project Source file in the Custom Plugins tab of your mobile application’s Settings editor. See Add a Custom Plugin to Your Mobile Application.

22.07

Dynamic form enhancements You can now configure form field properties so that fields are displayed as multi-line text areas instead of the default single-line text field. You can set the number of rows of text area to display, and the max number of rows to which a text area can grow. See Set a Field to Display as a Text Area in a Form .

22.07

Business object enhancements
  • App profiles to switch schemas for business objects based on existing DB tables and views

    When you use your own database schema, you can now associate application profiles with different phases of your application, to switch the schema that your app connects to during its lifecycle. For example, you might use a particular schema during the development phase, but switch to another one for testing or production. See Switch Schemas Used During an App's Lifecycle.

  • Schema validation for business objects based on existing DB tables and views

    For business objects based on existing DB tables and views, we've added validation to make sure a field's metadata is compatible with the corresponding table/view column. If there's a discrepancy, you'll see validation messages around the UI component as well as in audits. See Create a Business Object Based on a DB Table or View.

  • New performance metrics when tracing GET requests

    When you enable tracing for a business object's REST requests, you now have an indicator of the maximum response size for GET requests, a theoretical value that can help you determine whether you need to take steps to reduce the response size. See Enable Tracing to Monitor Endpoint Calls.

22.07

Enhancements for services and backends
  • Declarative support for Transforms

    Transforms has now moved from its own tab to an area in the Overview tab for backends, service connections, and some endpoints. With this update, transforms can be defined in the backend catalog and thus, inherited by services and endpoints. You can also override transforms at the service and endpoint level. See Add Transforms.

  • Form Data and Binary payload support for Service endpoint testing

    You can do much more with the Endpoints Test tab under Services. POST, PATCH, and PUT REST APIs with application/octet-stream and multipart/form-data formats can be tested from the Service Connection Test tab. In addition, you can download binary data or save textual data in the response body. If the response body doesn't contain text, a message indicates that it contains binary data. See Test Service Connection Responses.

JET CCA upgrade

With the JET CCA upgrades, we now ensure seamless integration with Oracle Visual Builder Cloud Service (VBCS) and support the following:
  • Process owners/reviewers can view full task history in task detail UI snippet.
  • The beforeSubmit event is added to the task action UI snippet component. When a task action (Approve, Reject or Submit) is performed, it triggers the beforeSubmit event. A VBCS application can capture this event to validate its custom form and save its payload. The VBCS application can act on success/failure scenarios to proceed with the task action (confirm method) or abort the task action (cancel method) on the component.

22.1.2
Visual Builder Features

Visual Builder Features

This release of Visual Builder uses Oracle JET 11.1.x libraries and components. We recommend that you upgrade your Visual Builder applications to this latest JET version, as well as to the 22.04 Visual Builder Runtime, to take advantage of the full spectrum of 22.04 features.

Some new Visual Builder features can’t be used until you’ve upgraded your Visual Builder Runtime. The Minimum Version Required column shows the runtime required to use each feature.

Feature Description Minimum Version Required
Responsive web app templates New web app templates are now enhanced for responsive design. Available in three navigational styles, these templates adjust to various screen sizes and provide better support for responsive layouts and progressive web apps. See Create a New Web App.

Common elements for these web apps, such as the header, footer, and navigation items, are defined in fragments, enabling you to reuse each piece in the web app's root page as well as other pages. You can also customize these elements however you want to create your own look and feel. See Edit the App Header and Footer.

Note:

Web apps created with version 22.01/21.10 or earlier will not be affected. These apps will maintain their original look and feel even after you upgrade them to 22.04.

22.04

Support for JET's Stable theme

When customizing a Redwood-themed application, you can now use the Stable base theme to override only what you want to change, where previously you might have had to override all variables directly in the Redwood base theme. The Stable theme (introduced in JET 11.0.0) is meant to be as stable as possible; as a result, you can override the variables you want to change while inheriting all other updates to the Redwood theme. See Customize the Redwood Theme for a Web Application.

22.01

Fragments

If you've always wanted to break up complex pages into parts that are easier to work with, fragments is for you. A fragment encapsulates a page's section in its own HTML, JSON, and JavaScript files, helping you share it across pages in an application. Besides reuse, it provides performance gains and makes for easier organization and code management. See Work With Fragments.

You can add standard as well as dynamic components (including dynamic containers) to your fragment. You can also create input parameters for a fragment right from the Properties pane of the fragment container on the page where the fragment is used. See Create a Fragment.

You can also create input parameters for a fragment right from the Properties pane of the fragment container on the page where the fragment is used. See Pass Data Between a Page and Its Fragment for a sample scenario.

22.04

Background processing of action chain tests

Action chain tests, accessible through the Tests tab at the bottom of an application's window, now include some usability improvements. Instead of showing a full list of tests, this tab shows failed tests alone to highlight items that require you to take action. Test results are also cached across browser sessions now to improve performance. See Test Action Chains.

The tests also run in the background, even when you are not actively working on your application. If you are, only tests impacted by your changes (for example, if you added a new variable or changed an existing function) are scheduled to run again. This way, your test results stay up-to-date even as you develop your application, helping you detect bugs earlier and maintain your tests more easily. See Manage All Tests in a Visual Application.

22.04

Dynamic layout enhancements

We've made a bunch of updates to enhance UIs based on dynamic components. When you add a dynamic component (table, form, or container), you'll notice that the Dynamic UIs tab in the Navigator is now called Layouts. Other significant enhancements include:

  • Dynamic components in Components palette by default

    Dynamic components, such as tables, forms, and containers, are now present by default in the Components palette. Previously, you had to install these components from your environment's Component Exchange before you could use them in your application. Now, dragging and dropping them from the Dynamic Components section of the Components palette onto the canvas automatically installs them to the application and brings up the Layouts tab in the navigator. See How to Create Layouts With Dynamic Components.

  • Option to preview a dynamic component's layout

    When you define multiple layouts, you now have the option of selecting any layout in a dynamic component's Properties pane to preview the layout as it would appear on a page, even if those conditions are not met. You no longer need to run the page and ensure the conditions are met at runtime to check how the layout renders. See Preview Different Layouts.

  • Enhancements for dynamic containers

    • We've improved how you edit sections (formerly templates) in dynamic containers. So you can now edit sections directly in the Page Designer, rather than in the Template editor. Because of this, you can see the component (including dynamic tables and forms) rendered on the page as you work with the container. See Add a Dynamic Container to a Page.
    • Container templates for dynamic containers

      Sections created by templates in a dynamic container, by default, stack vertically on top of each other. You can now use container templates to change this layout, for example, to show sections in a row. See Change a Dynamic Container's Layout.

  • Condition builder changes

    The condition builder in the Rulesets editor now groups fields for selection under Fields, Responsive, User, and so on, making it easier for you to select from the drop-down list. We've also changed the list of user roles that show by default for Oracle Cloud Applications, so the drop-down lists the available Job and Abstract roles, but you'll need to manually enter Duty roles in the Value field. See Add Display Logic to Determine What's Displayed at Runtime.

  • New User Assistance Density property

    The Properties pane for forms and fields in layouts contains a new property that allows you to set how a field's user assistance text (messages, help text, hints, and so on) are displayed in forms. See Set How User Assistance is Rendered in a Layout.

  • BaseComponentContextType

    In addition to ComponentContextType parameters which let you augment a dynamic layout with values provided by your application, you can now define BaseComponentContexType parameters to define values at the service level. Much like component context parameters, base component context parameters become part of the $componentContext system variable and can be used anywhere in the dynamic layout (for example, in a layout's conditions and expressions). See Define Custom Contexts for Components in a Layout.

  • Suggested and required fields

    We've made some updates to improve user experience when working with a dynamic layout's Fields palette. A new Suggested Fields section now emphasizes fields that might be important or relevant to include in the layout. Further, when you create a new layout within the Rule Sets editor, fields that are marked as required are automatically added to the layout. See Create a Layout for a Dynamic Table or Form.

  • Converter and validator improvements

    Adding a validator or converter to a field in a dynamic layout now selects a default based on the field type. For example, if you were adding a converter to an ID field, the Number converter is selected for you by default because ID is a number field. To simplify configuration, only the most commonly used options are displayed for your selection.

    We've also added support for an expression validator to check whether a field's value matches a pattern defined by a regular expression and an expression converter that converts the field's value to a regular expression for evaluation.

    See Add Converters and Validators to Fields.

  • Column sorting and sizing in dynamic tables

    When a field is added to a dynamic table, you can now use several properties to control sorting and sizing for the field's column. These properties are available in the Properties pane when you select a field in a dynamic table's layout. See Configure How Columns Render in a Dynamic Table's Layout.

22.04

JavaScript editor changes
  • ES6 syntax for JavaScript in web apps

    For new JS files in web apps, we now generate the ECMAScript 6 (ES6) syntax with class declarations. Previously, this syntax was used only for JS files in mobile apps. ES6 syntax is supported wherever you generate declarative JS or directly author JS. For example, you can use ES6 syntax to build expressions for rule set conditions or variables.

  • Code snippets for common JS structures

    We've also enhanced the JavaScript editor to offer code snippets for common JS structures, such as "for" loops and conditional statements. For example, typing in the JavaScript editor will show you options to select different "for" loop formats. Selecting one will populate the structure and allow easy navigation of the cursor to the relevant areas.

22.04

Business object updates
  • Create business objects based on existing tables and views in an Oracle database

    If you use an external database like DBaaS or Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP) with your Visual Builder instance, you can now use your own DB schema and create business objects based on existing tables and views. These business objects, in general, are the same as native business objects, but there are restrictions. See Switch to Your Own Schema for Business Objects.

  • Database schemas used in different app phases

    You can now view the names of the database schemas associated with a particular phase of an app's lifecycle (Development, Stage, and Live). If you are using your own Oracle database, this information can help you access data using other tools for import or export, or access the tables for your own purposes. See View Database Schemas Used During an App's Lifecycle.

  • Validation of a business object field's properties

    The Field Name of a Business Object's field is now underlined in red on the Fields tab to indicate errors that affect not only the Field Name property, but also any properties on that specific field. See Edit Business Object Fields.

  • Mark your own ID column when importing business objects

    When you import spreadsheets and CSV files to create business objects, you can now use your own column as the primary key field, instead of the system-generated id field. This option is available only for non-blank data containing numeric fields. See Create Business Objects from a File.

  • Specify encoding format for an imported file

    When creating business objects from a file, you can specify a variety of encoding formats for the imported file via a new Character Encoding field. If a value isn't specified or if the specified value is not valid, UTF-8 is used as the default. See Create Business Objects from a File.

22.04

Enhancements for app lifecycle management
  • Roll back live app to last published version

    When you publish multiple versions of a live app, you can now roll back the current live version to the previous published version. See Roll Back Application to the Previously Published Version.

  • Custom page for locked app

    When an application is locked for maintenance, Visual Builder displays a default "Application Locked" screen when someone tries to access the locked app. You now have the option of creating a custom page to display to your users, instead of the default. See Create a Custom Lock Page.

22.04

Backends and service connections
  • Server authentication options renamed

    The server authentication type descriptions have been updated and two types were renamed:
    • "Propagate Current User Identity" is now called "Delegate Authentication "
    • "OAuth 2.0 Resource Owner" is now called "OAuth 2.0 Resource Owner Password Credentials"
    See Identity Propagation Authentication Mechanisms.
  • Support for server variables in a server URL

    Server variables are now automatically created when you enter a valid URI template expression in a server URL. When your server URL is defined as, for example, https://restcountries.com/{version}/{lang}, we create the version and lang server variables for you. All your server variables are listed under a new Server Variables section in the Servers editor, where you can manage them to set a default value (required by the OpenAPI3 specification) or to add an enumerated list.

    A new Server Variables tab has also been added to the Test tab of the Endpoints editor, allowing you to set the server variable value when testing an endpoint.

  • List of service connections for a backend

    Any service connections defined for a backend now display on the backend's Overview tab (below the + Service Connection button). Dynamic service connections are automatically shown. Static service connections are shown when the Load more related connections link is selected. See Manage Backends in Your Visual Application.

  • New flow to replace endpoint definitions for static Integrations connections

    For static Integrations service connections, you can now use the Replace button in the Endpoints tab to replace all endpoint definitions without manually creating a new connection and deleting the old one. See Edit Service Endpoints for a Static Service Connection.

  • Support for modifying service authentication and connection settings in the instance

    Administrators of a Visual Builder instance can now use the Services tab in the Tenant Settings page to configure authentication and connection settings for backend services available in the instance. An administrator can also edit connection details to override the settings inherited from child backend services. See Edit Authentication Settings for a Backend Service

Enumerated type It's now possible to create an enumerated custom type in the Types editor to define a list of values, usually for variables that have a small set of possible values. See Create a Custom Enumeration Type.

Page Designer enhancements
  • Data palette

    Where you might use components to design a page, you can now use data sources—via a brand new Data palette in the Page Designer—to design your page. Just as you'd drag and drop components from the Components palette, you drag and drop data sources (say, an Employee object's endpoints) and choose from a suggested list of components tailored to best display your data. See The Data Palette.

  • Panel placement and breadcrumbs

    You can now reposition the Components, Data, Structure, and Properties panels within the Page Designer to customize the canvas for your convenience. With the introduction of the Data palette, the Structure view has been placed, by default, in the bottom left corner of the canvas, but you can change this up however you want.

    We've also added breadcrumbs in a separate bar at the bottom of the canvas to help you navigate a selected component's hierarchy. See The Page Designer Toolbar.

  • New Insert Component option

    In addition to the standard drag-and-drop from the Components palette, you can now add components using an new Insert Component option. This option is available when you right-click on the canvas and in Structure view (where it's most useful to position a component in complex layouts). See The Structure View.

22.04

Other enhancements
  • Properties pane in the Diagram view

    We've added a Properties pane to an application's Diagram view, so you can view more details about an application's pages and sub-flows in a central location. See Use the Diagram View.

  • Custom properties in Properties pane

    It's now possible to view, edit, or add custom properties for a component via its Properties pane, in the All tab. Custom properties are those not defined in component metadata, for example, data-* attributes, and can be added by clicking + next to General Attributes in the All tab.

  • Slot value in Properties pane

    You can now change the slot used by a component inside a parent component's slot via the Properties pane, in the General and All tabs. You can change the slot value to move, for example, a button's icon from the startIcon slot to the endIcon slot. This way, you can modify the slots of dropped components without accessing the HTML code.

  • Support for optional chaining operators

    When referring to optional object properties, you can now use optional chaining operators (?.) in JavaScript syntax without it being flagged by audits. These operators, supported in standalone .js files as well as in HTML/JSON file expressions, make it simpler to access the values of deeply nested properties and return an undefined value instead of an error when the reference or function doesn't exist. For example, [[ $page.variables.customerObj.address?.street3 ]] would return undefined if street3 does not exist in the address property. See Optional Chaining in developer documentation.

Feature Description Minimum Version Required
PWA support for web apps

To help you build apps that scale from desktop to tablet to mobile, we've expanded our PWA capabilities to web apps, in addition to mobile apps. This option allows you to create responsive web apps that users can add to their mobile devices as mobile apps.

You can use the new PWA tab in a web app's Settings editor to enable PWA support for a web app. We also provide a default offline page that you can display to users when the PWA-enabled app isn't connected to the Internet. The default offline page is based on a responsive Redwood page template, but you can customize it to suit your requirements. See Configure Progressive Web App Support.

21.10.0

Page flow enhancements
  • Revamped page flow diagram

    The Page Flow tab, used to display an application's structure at the application and flow levels, has been revamped to use the Redwood design language. Now called Diagram, this view provides a hierarchical view of an application's flows and pages within a flow. It also allows you to view default pages, navigation flows, and more. See Use the Diagram View.

  • Nested flows shows only when flows exist

    We've streamlined the Navigator view for a web or mobile app so that the nested flows node shows only when a flow is created. To create a new flow, you'll now need to click + next to the application node. To create a subflow, you click + next to an existing flow. See Create a Page Flow.

21.07.0

Redwood icon gallery Visual apps that use the Redwood theme now leverage Redwood's comprehensive icon library and are available to you right from an app's icon gallery. As a part of this update, we added the icon's stylesheet to an app's imports, so you'll always see the latest Redwood icons when new versions of the icon font are released. You access the icon gallery as usual, say when you add an icon to a page or a navigation list component. See Add an icon component to a page.

21.07.0

Action chain enhancements
  • Action chains in separate JSON files

    To optimize performance and reduce Git merge conflicts, we've moved an action chain's source from the artifact JSON to its own JSON file. While action chains created with version 21.10 will use separate JSON files by default, you have the option of migrating action chains created in earlier versions. See Create an Action Chain and Migrate an Action Chain.

  • Deprecated actions

    We've deprecated two built-in actions: The takePhotoAction is deprecated for web apps while the transformChartDataAction is deprecated for both web and mobile apps.

    It's now possible to view actions that have been deprecated in a release by selecting the Show Deprecated menu option in the Actions palette. See Built-in Actions.

    Any action chains that use the previously deprecated navigateToPageAction action will be automatically migrated to the new navigateAction when you upgrade your app to version 21.10.

21.10.0

Data provider enhancements We've added some design-time options that you can configure from a built-in data provider's properties on the Variables tab:
  • Text Filter Attributes and Fetch by Offset for SDPs

    For Service Data Provider (SDP) type variables, you can now configure the Text Filter Attributes field when you want user-specified text to filter results shown in a list component like Select Single. See Filter Component Data by Text. This field was previously added to an Array Data Provider variable's properties.

    We've also added Fetch by Offset to the list of Fetch Capabilities to provide random access for endpoints that support querying using a specified offset.

  • Sort Comparators for ADPs

    For Array Data Provider (ADP) type variables, you can configure the Sort Comparators field to specify your own comparators for sorting.

21.07.0

Business object updates
  • New Groovy timeout override

    When you use Groovy code for business logic, you can now override the default Groovy timeout if you think your script's processing time will overrun the default duration. You can change this setting via the Timeout Override option when you use Groovy expressions to define formula fields, default values, and business rules. See Override the Default Timeout for Groovy Scripts.

  • New Create options to add formulas and aggregate functions to fields

    You can now create aggregate and formula fields directly from a business object's Fields page. Previously you had to create a field, then edit it to add a formula or an aggregation function. See Add a Field for Aggregating Data and Add a Formula to a Field.

  • Fields display in diagrams changed

    We've changed how fields display by default in business object diagrams. They now show by attribute names, rather than display labels, to match what you'll use in REST API calls or Groovy code. You can still view fields by their display labels by turning off the Show Field Names option. See Work with the Business Object Diagrammer.

  • Tracing for endpoint monitoring

    You can now enable tracing for a business object's REST requests to diagnose performance bottlenecks and other issues in your application. See Enable Tracing to Monitor Endpoint Calls.

21.07.0

Other Designer updates
  • New debug mode for preview

    You can now troubleshoot runtime issues with your application using a new Debug Preview option that uses the debug variants of the Visual Builder runtime and Oracle JET libraries. See Preview an App in Debug Mode.

  • Changed default for Page Designer screen setting

    Fit to Canvas, the option that resizes the canvas to always take up all available space between the left and right panes in the Page Designer, is now the default screen option. See The Page Designer Toolbar.

21.07.0

Reset HEAD for a visual app integrated with a Git repo When you link a visual app to a Git repo in a Visual Builder Studio project, you can now reset your current local branch HEAD to use the latest branch head or any other commit.

Visual Builder Features

Visual Builder Runtime and Oracle JET Version for 21.07

This release of Visual Builder in Oracle Integration uses Oracle JET 10 libraries and components. We recommend that you upgrade your Visual Builder applications to this latest JET version, as well as to the 21.07 Visual Builder Runtime, to take advantage of the full spectrum of 21.07 features. For example, JET 10 introduces support for rendering some components on dark backgrounds through the use of JET classes. To see everything that’s new in JET 10, see the Release Notes.

You can upgrade to the latest JET and Visual Builder Runtime versions from your visual application's Settings editor. See Manage Runtime Dependencies for Visual Applications.

Visual Builder Features

Feature Description Minimum Version Required
Custom theming for Redwood-based web apps This release bundlesOracle JET 10, and with that comes the ability to customize your application's Redwood theme. You do this using CSS variables right within the Designer, though only for web applications that use the Redwood UI: From your application's Settings editor, create a separate CSS file with the default JET CSS variables, then uncomment and update the variables you want to change. See Style Visual Builder Applications and Customize the Redwood Theme for a Web Application.

21.07.0

Enhanced upgrade and migration When you upgrade your application to a newer release, Visual Builder now makes changes to your app to better align it with the new release. As a part of this migration, it provides a list of changes, so you get an idea of how your app is evolving. See Manage Runtime Dependencies for Visual Applications.

21.07.0

Oracle JET Dynamic Components You can now add dynamic tables and forms to your visual applications. Dynamic components let you control what’s displayed at runtime based on the conditions that are true for the current user or device accessing the app. For example, you might configure a dynamic table so that certain columns are hidden and others are added when the user viewing the page is a manager. Dynamic containers, which let you display your own content in regions within the container based on conditions that are evaluated at runtime, are also available in 21.07. You can install all three dynamic components from the Component Exchange; just search on “dynamic”.

21.07.0

Page Designer toolbar changes The Page Designer toolbar has a new Custom option that lets you resize the canvas to whatever size you want. The Auto option, introduced in the previous release, is now renamed as Fit to Canvas. See Page Designer Toolbar.

21.07.0

Action and action chain updates
  • We've introduced a new Navigate action (navigateAction) that lets you navigate from a page to another page and also to another flow. With this update, the previously used navigateToPageAction, now labeled Navigate (Legacy) on the Actions palette, is deprecated. See Add a Navigate Action.
  • It's now much easier to build your apps to scan barcodes and QR codes: simply drag and drop the new Scan Barcode action (barcodeAction) from the Actions palette to an action chain. The action accepts an image of a barcode or QR code and will return its value. See Add a Scan Barcode Action.
  • For the Navigate Back action (navigateBackAction), a new Parameters field has been added to help you pass parameters to the previous page. See Add a Navigate Action.
  • For the Call REST action, the Response Body Format field (which lets you override the standard REST behavior) now supports the formData option. See Add a Call REST Endpoint Action and Call REST Endpoint Action.
  • The action chain editor now has a new toolbar, which lets you search your action chain, especially when it includes hundreds of actions. You can enter any search text—variable name, endpoint ID, action ID—to find what you're looking for. An Overview icon also provides a visual view of your action chain, with the nodes that match your search text highlighted. Both features work together to help you quickly search and navigate your action chain. See Create an Action Chain.
  • Similar to variable and type usages, you can now view an action chain's usage information in the Properties pane. Look under Usages to see (for example) which pages use the action chain. See Create an Action Chain.

21.07.0

Variable updates
  • A new filter field has been added to a variable's Expression editor in the Properties pane to help you search and find variables. You can also resize the left panel, which is useful when a variable's name is long.
  • For common filtering scenarios in components like select-single, a new Text Filter Attributes field has been added to an Array Data Provider variable's Properties pane. Use this field to specify an array of attributes on which the filter should be applied.
  • For complex variable types like an Object, a new diff property has been added to the variable's onValueChanged event listener to show properties within the variable that have changed.

21.07.0

Business object changes
  • It is now possible to delete business objects even when they are referenced by other business objects. When you try to delete a business object, from the Objects tab or the Diagrams tab within Business Objects, any relationships to other business objects will be shown in a confirmation dialog. If you confirm the selection, the fields referenced in the other business object will also be deleted.
  • Prior to 21.07, number fields returned in a business object endpoint response were presented in scientific format (for example, 1E3), unless the response was processed by a JSON parser (either directly or on the business object's Data tab). Now, however, the numbers are always returned in standard notation, making it possible for numbers to display consistently even without parsing.

    Note:

    If your application is already staged and published, make sure you re-stage and re-publish your application to leverage this update. See Staging and Publishing Visual Applications.

21.07.0

Delete referenced business objects It is now possible to delete business objects even when they are referenced by other business objects. When you try to delete a business object, from the Objects tab or the Diagrams tab within Business Objects, any relationships to other business objects will be shown in a confirmation dialog. If you confirm the selection, the fields referenced in the other business object will also be deleted.

21.07.0

Service connection enhancements

Last release, we gave you the option of creating a dynamic service connection to retrieve a service's OpenAPI definition from the source URL. While this option always fetches the latest service definition for your app, it may impact performance. To optimize metadata retrieval performance, we've introduced the Copy minimal OpenAPI to the application option for ADF Describe-based services like Oracle Cloud Applications. This option stores minimal service metadata locally in the application's sources, but dynamically retrieves the parameter or request/response schema whenever required. See Service Connections: Static Versus Dynamic.

No matter which metadata retrieval option you choose when creating a service connection, you can now change your selection later on. See Convert a Service Connection.

21.07.0

Export user-role mappings When you export an application, its user-role mappings (as defined in user-roles.json) are now included in the exported archive (as role-mapping.json). When the application archive is later imported, the role mappings are also imported—as long as the app is imported to the same IDCS domain it was exported from. See Manage User Roles and Access

Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter and Oracle ERP Cloud Adapter - Support for consuming extensible flexfields (EFFs) and descriptive flexfields (DFFs) for REST resources Oracle Integration is a customer-preferred platform for integrating with Oracle Fusion Applications (ERP Cloud, Engagement Cloud, and HCM Cloud). This latest release provides even more functional enrichments to the already feature-rich Oracle Fusion Applications adapters and continues Oracle Integration's lead as an integration platform of choice for customers. Oracle Fusion Applications support associating descriptive flexfields (DFFs) or extensible flexfields (EFFs) with which you can create custom attributes for business objects. As you define, associate, and leverage DFF and EFF fields for enriching business objects, the real value of enriched business objects is reaped only when the enriched information is exchanged seamlessly to and from Oracle Fusion Applications and the rest of the business applications in the customer footprint. This capability has been enhanced for the Oracle ERP Cloud Adapter and Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter.

See Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter Capabilities in Using the Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter with Oracle Integration and Oracle ERP Cloud Adapter Capabilities in Using the Oracle ERP Cloud Adapter with Oracle Integration.

210129.2200.39441
Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter - Migration from emps to worker business for an employee Atom feed The Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter has been enhanced to support the worker business objects for an employee Atom feed. The Oracle HCM Cloud worker business object is much more enriched in comparison to the emps business object. Because a worker business object is a super set, there is no loss of functionality. The Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter continues to support the emps business object for existing integrations. However, a new endpoint configuration fetches the worker business object.

See Invoke Operation Page in Using the Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter with Oracle Integration.

210129.2200.39441

See Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Streaming Service Adapter Capabilities in Using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Streaming Service Adapter with Oracle Integration.

210129.2200.39441
REST Adapter - Support for consumption and publication of OpenAPI with multipart/mixed and multipart/form-data OpenAPI is a foundational cornerstone in the digital economy used by almost all modern applications and digital technologies and services for communicating the set of services offered by them digitally, enabling everyone to communicate efficiently in the digital economy. Oracle Integration already supports publishing REST Adapter trigger flows in OpenAPI specification. However, the OpenAPI specification generated from Oracle Integration did not contain information depicting the resource request as a multipart request. As a result, consuming clients were left unaware about support for multipart request resources. With this latest release, Oracle Integration now supports publishing and consuming the OpenAPI specification that contains the required constructs for depicting the multipart request.

See Consume and Publish OpenAPI Documents with Multipart/Mixed and Multipart/Form-Data in Using the REST Adapter with Oracle Integration.

210129.2200.39441

Visual Builder Features

Some new Visual Builder features can’t be used until you’ve upgraded your Visual Builder Runtime to 21.04. See Features Requiring Visual Builder Runtime 21.04 for more information.

Feature Description Minimum Version Required
Service connection and backend enhancements
  • New navigation for service connections and backends

    The Services tab in the Navigator (previously the Service Connections tab) has been enhanced to show catalog backends as well. Within this tab, Service Connections now show under the Service Connections tab and backends show under the Backends tab. Previously, all backend settings were managed from the Services tab in the Settings editor. See Work with Services in Developing Applications with Oracle Visual Builder in Oracle Integration.

  • Support for custom backends

    In addition to the built-in Integration, Process, and Oracle Cloud Application backends, it's now possible to create backends that map to other types of custom servers. You can use any OpenAPI/Swagger service specification or point to an Oracle ADF Describe to create a custom backend. See Create a Custom Backend in Developing Applications with Oracle Visual Builder in Oracle Integration.

    Service connections for custom backends can be created by service specification or by endpoint URL.

  • New dynamic service connections

    You can now create a service connection to dynamically retrieve the service's OpenAPI definition, instead of copying the definition and storing it as part of your visual application's sources. A dynamic service connection creates a pointer to the service definition at a remote location. This keeps your application in sync with the latest service definition and enables you to re-use external definitions that aren't customized for your app. See Service Connections: Static Versus Dynamic in Developing Applications with Oracle Visual Builder in Oracle Integration.

  • Smart URL and information banners

    Several updates were made to enhance the workflow when you create a service connection by specification or by endpoint, key among them:
    • A new + Service Connection button enables you to create a service connection from an existing backend.
    • The URL input field displays a drop-down list of existing backends and filters the list based on the text you enter. A new Detach button (Detach icon) lets you use the URL that the services resolves to, rather than the vb-catalog URL.
    • An information banner helps you more easily identify service connections that are "derived" from a backend.

21.04.0 (210129.2200.39441)

Code editor improvements The code editors in the Designer—HTML, JSON, JavaScript, and Code view in the Page Designer—are now based on Monaco, the same editor that provides extensive code-editing capabilities in Visual Studio Code.
The HTML and JSON editors leverage this update as follows:
  • The HTML editor provides code completion for Oracle JET snippets. For example, when you want to add a JET combo box, typing ojcb in the editor will present a list of component tags that match the text. You can then select the ojcbo tag in the code completion window to insert a combo box code snippet and add it to your HTML file.
  • The JSON editor provides insights based on the file's associated JSON schema to provide tooltips, hints, and key/value completion.

Note that code insight has changed—you now need to trigger it in an editor by typing Ctrl+Space or by typing a trigger character, such as the dot character (.) in JavaScript. See Work With Code Editors in Developing Applications with Oracle Visual Builder in Oracle Integration.

21.04.0 (210129.2200.39441)

Declarative support to create custom types from code It's now much easier to use your own type, such as a type class written in JavaScript or a typescript class, with a variable. Using a new From Code option in the Types editor, you can import your type definition to declaratively plug in any Oracle JET type class or a custom type class and create an instance of that type class, then use it with a new category of variable known as an InstanceFactory variable. See Create a Custom Type From Code in Developing Applications with Oracle Visual Builder in Oracle Integration.

21.04.0 (210129.2200.39441)

New UI to manage resource imports It is now possible for you to add, update, or delete imported resources, such as custom CSS files, modules, and components. You can create references to these imports at the page, flow, and application level using the new Imports tab from the Settings editor. See Import Components, CSS, and Custom Modules for an Application in Developing Applications with Oracle Visual Builder in Oracle Integration.

21.04.0 (210129.2200.39441)

Improvements to the Action Chain editor

When you define an action's properties in an action chain, its default ID is now regenerated to provide a more descriptive identifier. For example, a single Call REST Endpoint action added to a chain has an initial ID of callRest. If you configure the actions endpoint, say, to call the Petstore getPetById endpoint, the action ID is automatically updated to callRestGetPetById, making your code more readable and easier to maintain and debug.

IDs are regenerated for the following actions: Call Action Chain, Call Function, Call REST, Fire Event, Navigate, and Call Component.

21.04.0 (210129.2200.39441)

Index a business object field You can now index a business object field to add a non-unique index to the field's database column and improve performance when you search for the field's value via REST requests or Groovy code. See Index a Field in Developing Applications with Oracle Visual Builder in Oracle Integration.

21.04.0 (210129.2200.39441)

Business object relationship When your business object includes a reference type field, you can now view and edit the relationship directly from the referenced field's properties.

21.04.0 (210129.2200.39441)

Improvements to the Variables and Types editors
  • Create a variable from the Types editor

    You can now use a shortcut to create a variable for a specific type: select a type in the Types tab, right-click, and select Create a variable.

  • Keep track of variable and type usages in the Variables and Types editors

    You can now view variable and type usage information under the Usages section in the Properties pane. You can also click a usage to navigate there easily.

21.04.0 (210129.2200.39441)

Enhanced support for JS functions It is now easier to call custom functions defined in JavaScript modules and imported module objects. These functions become available for selection in an action chain using the Call Function action and in a component's property (both in the Expression editor and the Variables picker). See Work with the JavaScript Editor in Developing Applications with Oracle Visual Builder in Oracle Integration.

21.04.0 (210129.2200.39441)

Key usability improvements
  • Auto setting for screen size

    The screen size setting that determines how your canvas displays in the Page Designer toolbar now includes an Auto option, which resizes the canvas to take up all available space between the left and right panes.

  • Revamped Visual Applications page

    We’ve made some changes to the Visual Applications Home page. With one glance at the new Origin column, you can see which apps were built in your Visual Builder instance and which originated in Visual Builder Studio. And while the only action available for VB Studio apps on the Home page is Delete, you still have access to all the other actions—you just perform them in VB Studio now. See Manage Applications Created in Visual Builder Studio. Finally, check out the new icons on the Home page that indicate an application's status, as well as the new timestamp that shows recent activity for the app.

21.04.0 (210129.2200.39441)

Recovery mode When a visual application fails to upgrade because of syntax errors, the Designer now goes into recovery mode. In this mode, you can use tools such as Code View to fix syntax errors and then upgrade your visual application. See Resolve Issues that Prevent Upgrade of Visual Application in Developing Applications with Oracle Visual Builder in Oracle Integration.

21.04.0 (210129.2200.39441)

Sitemap for a web application You can now add a sitemap to a web application's resources to provide search engines information about your application's pages for intelligent crawling and search indexing. See Add a Sitemap to a Web Application's Resources in Developing Applications with Oracle Visual Builder in Oracle Integration.

21.04.0 (210129.2200.39441)

New camera component You can now use the new camera component when you want your application to access the camera capabilities of the devices on which it is installed. The camera component offers more configuration options than the Take Photo action, and does not require you to add a separate action to trigger taking a photo. See Add Camera Component to a Page in Developing Applications with Oracle Visual Builder in Oracle Integration.

21.04.0 (210129.2200.39441)

Features Requiring Visual Builder Runtime 21.04

This release of Visual Builder uses Oracle JET 9.2 libraries and components. We recommend that you upgrade your Visual Builder applications to this latest JET version, as well as to the 21.04 Visual Builder Runtime, to take advantage of the full spectrum of 21.04 features. For example, in JET 9.2, new slots (Action, Navigation, and Quarternary) have been added to the List Item Layout component, making it even easier to produce great-looking content for your ListViews. To see everything that's new in JET 9.2, see the Release Notes.

Here are the features that require the 21.04 VB Runtime:

Feature Description
New dynamic service connections You can now create a service connection to dynamically retrieve the service's OpenAPI definition, instead of copying the definition and storing it as part of your visual application's sources. A dynamic service connection creates a pointer to the service definition at a remote location. This keeps your application in sync with the latest service definition and enables you to re-use external definitions that aren't customized for your app. See Service Connections: Static Versus Dynamic.
Declarative support to create custom types from code It's now much easier to use your own type, such as a type class written in JavaScript or a typescript class, with a variable in VB Studio. Using a new From Code option in the Types editor, you can import your type definition to declaratively plug in any Oracle JET type class or a custom type class and create an instance of that type class, then use it with a new category of variable known as an InstanceFactory variable.

Apache Kafka Adapter - Inbound polling support Apache Kafka is one of the modern pillars in enterprise's big data and digital ecosystem today, where large volumes of messages are ingested and consumed for depicting the state of business at a rapid pace. The Apache Kafka Adapter already supports a wide array of use cases such as publishing messages to specific topics and partitions, consuming messages from specific consumer groups, and reading from the beginning/latest topic. With this release, the Apache Kafka Adapter now allows integration architects to poll for messages in the Kafka system by configuring the Kafka connection as a trigger in an integration flow. Note that inbound polling configuration is only supported for the Kafka platform hosted behind a corporate firewall or on a private VCN network, along with the connectivity agent. This enables you to consume a high volume of messages from the Kafka topic and consume them in the integration flow.

See Apache Kafka Adapter Capabilities in Using the Apache Kafka Adapter with Oracle Integration.

20.4.2.0.0 (201009.0200.37961)
Apache Kafka Adapter - Confluent platform support The Apache Kafka Adapter now supports integrating with Kafka hosted on the Confluent platform. Confluent Cloud is a widely-used event streaming platform powered by Kafka that enables you to leverage Apache Kafka in a fully managed, scalable, and serverless architecture in the cloud.

See Configure Confluent Kafka with the Apache Kafka Adapter in Using the Apache Kafka Adapter with Oracle Integration.

 
Oracle NetSuite Adapter - TBA Authorization Flow security policy support The Oracle NetSuite Adapter has enhanced its concurrency limit. This means you receive a high concurrency limit when integrating with Oracle NetSuite using Oracle Integration, regardless of your Oracle NetSuite license. The enhanced concurrency limit is applicable only for invokes performed through connections created using the new TBA Authorization Flow security policy introduced in the Oracle NetSuite Adapter. The TBA Authorization Flow security policy provides multiple benefits to customers:
  • It is more secure because you don't have to enter the credentials in Oracle Integration.
  • You receive an enhanced concurrency limit whenever invokes are performed using such connections.
  • It is very simple to configure the connection. You only need to click the Provide Consent button on the Connections page and follow the prompts.

See Oracle NetSuite Adapter Capabilities in Using the Oracle NetSuite Adapter with Oracle Integration and Oracle Integration November 2020 update for Oracle Applications Adapters.

20.4.2.0.0 (201009.0200.37961)
Oracle NetSuite Adapter - Support for Initialize / InitializeList operations Oracle Integration continues to invest in the Oracle NetSuite Adapter, further integrating with Oracle NetSuite application capabilities to meet customer needs and simplifying access and thereby addressing wider use cases. One such enhancement available with this release is support for the Initialize / InitializeList operations. This is a very powerful feature for integration architects because they do not need to populate the records from scratch. Instead, they can prepopulate the records from the reference objects. For example, if you are designing a flow to initiate a cash refund, the refund is now against the cash sale. The Oracle NetSuite Adapter allows you to initialize the cash refund record from the cash sale, where the cash sale is a reference object and details such as createdfrom, line items, and amount are prepopulated.

See Invoke Operation Page in Using the Oracle NetSuite Adapter with Oracle Integration and Oracle Integration November 2020 update for Oracle Applications Adapters.

20.4.2.0.0 (201009.0200.37961)
REST Adapter - Generation of sample cURL command The REST Adapter is a versatile adapter that enables customers to communicate with a wide array of products and services such as Oracle Functions, OCI Object storage, AWS S3, and so on, making it one of the cornerstone adapters for your modern integration solutions. As you look to leverage the REST Adapter for integrating with a wide array of products and services, you have a variety of available configuration options such as security policy, headers, parameters, and so on. As these options are configured at different stages, they get lost and you can lose visibility into the configuration. Oracle Integration addresses this need by providing an option in the Adapter Endpoint Configuration Wizard Summary page to generate the sample cURL command.

See REST Adapter Capabilities in Using the REST Adapter with Oracle Integration.

20.4.2.0.0 (201009.0200.37961)
REST Adapter - Standard OAuth policy improvements The REST Adapter supports a variety of OAuth security policies out of the box (for example, OAuth Client Credentials, OAuth Resource Owner Password Credentials, and OAuth Authorization Code Credentials). One challenge is that different vendors have implemented these policies in different ways because the OAuth specification defines a high level exchange of information between participating parties. This leaves the details of implementation on the implementer. Oracle Integration is looking to support as many vendors as possible and still make it simple for customers to connect to and communicate with all the digital REST services using the supported OAuth security policy. With this in mind, the REST Adapter now supports an additional configuration parameter called Client Authentication on the Connections page. The client authentication parameters enable you to configure how Oracle Integration exchanges security tokens over the wire (for example, whether the client ID and secret are sent as a part of the basic authentication header or in the body).

See Configure Connection Security for Invoke Connections in Using the REST Adapter with Oracle Integration.

20.4.2.0.0 (201009.0200.37961)
REST Adapter - Connectivity properties improvements The REST Adapter is used for a wide variety of use cases, and requires additional flexibility such as querying and overriding the connectivity properties such as base URI, relative URI, or even absolute endpoint URI. This helps you to address scenarios in which you want to conditionally change endpoints based on the received payload. The REST Adapter already supports connectivity properties for the invoke endpoint. However, in previous releases, it supported only the request side. With this release, the REST Adapter supports connectivity properties for the invoke response, trigger request, and response: all four possible interactions. As an example, you want to pass the location for the next integration flow in the response of the current trigger flow. This can be achieved now by referring to the trigger REST resource base URI along with XSLT functions to formulate the location of the next integration flow.

See Set REST Adapter Connectivity Properties in the Mapper in Using the REST Adapter with Oracle Integration.

20.4.2.0.0 (201009.0200.37961)
Salesforce Adapter - Enablement for Salesforce Government Cloud customers The Salesforce Adapter was recently enhanced to eliminate the need to upload the enterprise WSDL on the Connections page. With this enhancement, customers who were using the Salesforce Government Cloud were unable to create new connections due to login considerations, as mentioned in this help document. With this release, the Salesforce Adapter provides support for creating a connection with the Salesforce.com application that can integrate with Salesforce Government Cloud.

  • Invoke (target) connection support for performing various operations against objects from the Plus (Gift cards) and Shopify Payments modules
  • Trigger (source) connection support for performing various types of actions against events from the FulfillmentEvents and Fulfillments modules

See Shopify Adapter Capabilities in Using the Shopify Adapter with Oracle Integration.

20.4.2.0.0 (201009.0200.37961)
Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Adapter, Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing Adapter, and Oracle Database Cloud Service Adapter - Support for wallet-based authentication with privately hosted databases In previous releases, when connecting to a privately hosted database using Autonomous Database - Dedicated (Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing - Dedicated or Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse - Dedicated) or Oracle Database Cloud Service with the connectivity agent, the only supported security option was JDBC Basic Authentication. With this release, you can also specify JDBC over SSL. This allows you to connect to a privately-hosted cloud database and leverage wallet-based authentication.

See Configure Connection Security in Using the Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing Adapter with Oracle Integration, Configure Connection Security in Using the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Adapter with Oracle Integration, Configure Connection Security in Using the Oracle Database Cloud Service Adapter with Oracle Integration and Security Improvements for Database & FTP Adapters.

20.4.2.0.0 (201009.0200.37961)
Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Adapter, Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing Adapter, and Oracle Database Cloud Service Adapter - Automatic database wallet and password refresh Oracle Wallet can be used to securely store your database credentials. Wallet rotation provides the ability to create a new wallet and invalidate the existing wallet. When the wallet is rotated or expires (or if using Basic Authentication and the database password is changed), a corresponding change is required in the Oracle Integration connection for that database. Once the connection is modified in Oracle Integration, you needed to deactivate and reactivate the integrations that used that connection. This sometimes meant that hundreds of integrations required reactivation, which was very impractical. With this release, it is no longer necessary to deactivate and reactivate the integrations. However, you still need to update the Connections page with a new wallet password, as applicable.

See Configure Connection Security in Using the Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing Adapter with Oracle Integration, Configure Connection Security in Using the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Adapter with Oracle Integration, and Configure Connection Security in Using the Oracle Database Cloud Service Adapter with Oracle Integration.

20.4.2.0.0 (201009.0200.37961)
Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing Adapter - Support for connecting with a serverless (ATP-S) database configured with a private endpoint The Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP) database is becoming more widely adopted, along with its use within integration flows using Oracle Integration. When configuring your database, you can specify that it uses a private endpoint within your VCN of your tenancy. This allows you to keep all traffic to and from your database off the public internet. When using the Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing Adapter in Oracle Integration to connect to an ATP instance using a private endpoint, you must set up the connectivity agent.

See Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing Adapter Capabilities in Using the Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing Adapter with Oracle Integration and Security Improvements for Database & FTP Adapters.

20.4.2.0.0 (201009.0200.37961)
PayPal Adapter - Inbound support and new modules PayPal is a global payment provider that enables vendors to receive payments digitally from their customers and make payments to their suppliers. The PayPal Adapter enables you to create an integration with a PayPal application in Oracle Integration. With this release, the PayPal Adapter provides inbound support. This means it can be configured as a trigger connection in an integration for the events related to the Billing, Invoicing, Payment, Checkout, and Catalog modules. Furthermore, the PayPal Adapter has been enhanced to support the Transaction Search, Subscriptions, Add Tracking, and Invoicing modules.

See PayPal Adapter Capabilities in Using the PayPal Adapter with Oracle Integration and Oracle Integration - Adapter Enhancements to Non Oracle Applications.

20.4.2.0.0 (201009.0200.37961)
FTP Adapter - Message payload security capabilities with privately-hosted SFTP servers When integrating with an FTP server that is hosted on-premises behind a firewall, you configure a connectivity agent in Oracle Integration to establish connectivity. In previous releases, there were certain security-related options that were not available when using the FTP Adapter with the connectivity agent. In particular:
  • Encrypting the message payload
  • Decrypting the message payload
  • Signing the message payload
  • Verifying the signed message payload

The above options can now be leveraged with the connectivity agent while communicating with the privately-hosted SFTP server.

See FTP Adapter Capabilities in Using the FTP Adapter with Oracle Integration and Security Improvements for Database & FTP Adapters.

20.4.2.0.0 (201009.0200.37961)
Oracle ERP Cloud Adapter, Oracle CX Sales and B2B Service Adapter, and Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter - Selectively pick child REST resources The Oracle Fusion Application adapters are key strategic adapters for Oracle Integration. Oracle Integration continues to update these adapters with features to meet your needs and improve the overall adapter experience. One improvement with this release is the ability to selectively pick child REST resources. This enables you to pick and chose the child resources needed for your businesses. Without this feature, you would have all child resources in the integration artifacts, resulting in an unmanageable number of elements to traverse through in the mapper and unnecessary loads at runtime.

See Oracle ERP Cloud Adapter Capabilities in Using the Oracle ERP Cloud Adapter with Oracle Integration, Oracle Engagement Cloud Adapter Capabilities in Using the Oracle CX Sales and B2B Service Adapter with Oracle Integration, Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter Capabilities in Using the Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter with Oracle Integration, and Oracle Integration November 2020 update for Oracle Applications Adapters.

20.4.2.0.0 (201009.0200.37961)
ServiceNow Adapter - Graceful downgrade of user experience The ServiceNow Adapter enables you to create an integration with ServiceNow in Oracle Integration. The ServiceNow Adapter has been enhanced to run with as few privileges as possible. With this release, you must provide minimal accesses on the tables to configure the ServiceNow Adapter as a trigger or an invoke connection in an integration.

Mobile applications
  • Deep links for mobile applications

    The Visual Builder Runtime now supports deep linking. Application behavior depends on the app and the environment where the app runs. Android and iOS mobile apps that you build in VB Studio can be opened from deep links. For PWAs, iOS does not support deep links while Android provides ready-to-use support for deep links.

    See Support Deep Linking from Mobile Applications in Developing Applications with Oracle Visual Builder in Oracle Integration.

  • Adaptive icons for Android mobile applications

    Adaptive icons that display as a variety of shapes on different Android devices are now supported for mobile applications built on VB Studio. The sample application image archive (available in an application's Resources section) includes adaptive icons that you can use as a base when you create custom images for your application. If your application uses an older image archive, VB Studio will try to use those icons as adaptive icons, but it is best to provide your own icons that are in line with Android specifications. VB Studio does not validate your icons and cannot guarantee that they will be compatible.

    See Change the Splash Screen and Icons Used by a Mobile Application and Enable PWA Support in Developing Applications with Oracle Visual Builder in Oracle Integration.

20.2.3.0.0 (200705.0200.36413)

Multi-operation Integration support

In Oracle Integration, integrations were recently expanded to expose multiple operations that can trigger them. Multi-endpoints means multiple resources and operation available in an integration, so we've added support for multi-operation REST integrations in processes. In a process application, we read and create all the resources, operations, and types (representing the payload) that the integration exposes and allow you to choose which one to call in each activity.

See Expose Multiple Operations with a Pick Action in Using Integrations in Oracle Integration.

20.2.3.0.0 (200705.0200.36413)

Import over TIP using REST

We've added the option of importing an .exp file as a tip of an already existing application of the same name. This option is important for CI/CD use cases.

In post calls to create a process application in a specified space (/oic/api/1.0/spaces/{spaceId}/projects), two new boolean parameters are available to overwrite an existing project when importing an application with the same name:

  • overwrite: If set to true, the existing process application is overwritten with the imported one. The default value is false.

  • discardUnpublishedChanges: If set to true, unpublished changes in the existing process application are discarded and the existing application is overwritten by the application being imported. The default value is false.

Note that discardUnpublishedChanges must be set to true if there are unpublished changes in an existing application. If there are unpublished changes and discardUnpublishedChanges is set to false, the import fails and a message indicates unpublished changes.

20.2.3.0.0 (200705.0200.36413)

Terminate action available in dynamic processes

We added support for a Terminate action for dynamic processes in Workspace (runtime).

Integration and Connectivity Features
Feature Description Minimum Version Required
Integrations to Processes integration enhancement When creating an integration that invokes a process, you can select a check box to use the default version of the process. This action enables the default process version to be triggered regardless of the version you selected. For example, if the process you selected is using process version 4.0, and the process version is later upgraded to version 4.1, this means that none of your integrations must be deactivated, edited, and reactivated. The process automatically starts using the latest version of the process (for this example, version 4.1).

Salesforce Adapter - Elimination of WSDL upload task on the Connections page The Salesforce Adapter has undergone a significant productivity enhancement with the elimination of the need to upload the enterprise WSDL on the Connections page. You were previously required to generate and download the enterprise WSDL file from https://www.salesforce.com and upload it on the Connections page. This was painstaking because the updated WSDL upload was required every time you performed a customization in Salesforce.com. This enhancement greatly simplifies the Connections page by asking you to simply select the target Salesforce instance type (for example, production or sandbox environment and Salesforce API version). Existing connections continue to work the same (with upload of the WSDL), but new connections created are not required to generate and upload the enterprise WSDL in the Salesforce connection.

Oracle NetSuite Adapter - Asynchronous API support The Oracle NetSuite Adapter is one of the key adapters in the Oracle Integration portfolio. Oracle Integration continues to focus on enriching this adapter by targeting NetSuite customer needs. The current Oracle NetSuite Adapter in Oracle Integration already allows the integration specialist to configure the Oracle NetSuite Adapter to make real-time invocations to NetSuite to perform create, read, update, and delete operations and perform extensive search operations on standard and custom business objects. With this update, support is added for submitting all of the above operations in an asynchronous mode. This capability allows integrations to seamlessly perform bulk imports of large data sets into NetSuite and bulk data extracts from NetSuite in a declarative way.

See Oracle NetSuite Adapter Capabilities and Implement Common Patterns Using the Oracle NetSuite Adapter in Using the Oracle NetSuite Adapter with Oracle Integration.

March 25
Apache Kafka Adapter - Mutual TLS and TLS security policy support The Apache Kafka Adapter introduced earlier this month has been significantly updated with support for TLS and mutual TLS based authentications. Mutual TLS-based authentication uses Kafka brokers to assert the client identity before establishing the trusted communication channel. This enables the Kafka brokers to ensure that the requests sent by Oracle Integration through the Apache Kafka Adapter are trustable and no man-in-the-middle attack has occurred.

See Configure Connection Security in Using the Apache Kafka Adapter with Oracle Integration.

March 25
Connectivity Agent - Automatic upgrade on Windows The connectivity agent is a pivotal part of Oracle Integration, enabling integrations and the exchange of information between on-premises applications and Oracle Integration. Customers currently running the connectivity agent on Windows have been required to upgrade the connectivity agent manually. This created a challenge for customers trying to keep updated to the latest connectivity agent version. The automatic upgrade feature relieves customers of this requirement. Customers are required to manually upgrade for one last time, after which the connectivity agent automatically upgrades itself and no further manual upgrade is required. March 19
REST Adapter - Multiple resources and verbs support Oracle Integration announces yet another structural improvement in the REST Adapter. The REST Adapter had previously supported publishing only a single resource with a single verb in inbound orchestrated integrations. This created an impediment for creating pure resource-based APIs in Oracle Integration and forced integration architects to create multiple integrations to support different verbs and subresources. The REST Adapter now supports adding multiple verbs to the resource and adding subresources in the inbound definition. As an example, assume you want to have a single resource to support different combinations of operations on a sales order resource through multiple verbs and subresources. You can now design such an orchestrated integration and pick the verb, resource, or subresource from the client as desired using a single resource URI.

See REST Adapter Capabilities in Using the REST Adapter with Oracle Integration and Receive Requests for Multiple Resources in a Single REST Adapter Trigger Connection in Using Integrations in Oracle Integration.

March 16
Oracle Asserter - Integration testing framework support The Oracle Asserter testing framework enables you to record tests of integration instances and replay them to reproduce potential issues. You can simulate the behavior of both a trigger connection and the response from an invoke connection. You can also export integrations with recordings and import and test the integration in a different environment (for example, move it from a design environment to a test environment). You can also submit recordings to Oracle for analysis of errors.

See Test Integration Instances in Using Integrations in Oracle Integration.

March 13
Notification actions - Attachment support You can add attachments to emails in a notification action.

See Send Notification Emails During Stages of the Integration with a Notification Action in Using Integrations in Oracle Integration.

March 13
Invoking co-located, active integrations from a parent integration You can invoke a co-located (child), active integration from the parent integration that you are designing through use of the local integration adapter. Co-located means the integration is running on the same host instance or in the same domain. Upon activation and invocation of the parent integration, it invokes and consumes the co-located integration.

See Invoke a Co-located Integration from a Parent Integration in Using Integrations in Oracle Integration.

March 13
For-each action - Support for parallel processing If you drag a for-each action into a scheduled integration or the for-each action is not inside a while action, for-each action, scope action, and so on, an additional field called Process items in parallel is visible at the bottom of the dialog. When selected, iterations of the for-each action are run in parallel.

As an example, you want to publish sales order updates for critical customers to the critical sales orders channels so that customer sales representatives can easily stay updated with their key customer order information.

See Slack Adapter Capabilities in Using the Slack Adapter with Oracle Integration.

March 3
Box Adapter - New adapter Oracle Integration announces a new addition to its growing list of connectivity adapters. The Box Adapter is the newest addition to the list. Box.com provides content management and file sharing as a cloud service. The Box Adapter supports both inbound and outbound integrations with Box.com on the Oracle Integration platform. You can create outbound integrations to upload your business critical documents such as sales orders, service contract agreements, lease agreements, and so on as parts of integrations. You can also create inbound integrations that are triggered based on real-time events in Box such as file is modified. As an example, you want to execute an integration that updates your ERP backend system with supplier acknowledgment of the order (that is, whenever the supplier uploads the confirmation/acknowledgment document for the order in the Box.com folder). The Box Adapter enables organizations to share, process, and streamline business critical documents between Oracle, non-Oracle, cloud, or on-premises applications with rich integration capabilities as well as a vast number of adapters to connect to these applications.

See Box Adapter Capabilities in Using the Box Adapter with Oracle Integration.

Visual Builder Features
Feature Description Published
OpenAPI 3

Visual Builder now supports the use of REST services described by the OpenAPI 3 specification.

When you open an existing visual application in this release or import a ZIP containing a visual application, Visual Builder upgrades the pre-existing service.json file (Swagger v2 format) to an openapi3.json file that uses the OpenAPI 3 format. If this operation fails because, for example, the service.json file is invalid, you will need to edit the service.json file so that it is valid and Visual Builder can successfully upgrade to the OpenAPI 3 format in the openapi3.json file.

In addition, all *-flow.json files in web and mobile apps will have references to services/*/service.json in the services map upgraded to point to the new openapi3.json file.

Visual Builder continues to support the use of REST services that are described by JSON files using the Swagger v2 specification.

For information about creating connections to REST services, see Work with Service Connections.

March 18
Application Profiles

Use application profiles to specify different application configurations for different environments and deployments. You can, for example, use an application profile to specify a service connection to different REST instances (development, test, and production) for each lifecycle phase of application development. See About Application Profiles.

March 18
Connection Type(s) for CORS Connection type is a new field where you control how your service connections communicate with external REST services depending on whether these services support CORS or not. Visual Builder automatically migrates service connections in existing applications to the appropriate connection type. The Direct (Bypass Proxy) authentication mechanism no longer appears and, in this release, the equivalent configuration is an authentication type of None and a connection type of Dynamic, Service supports CORS. See Use an Appropriate Connection Type to Handle CORS for REST Services. March 18
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure API Signature 1.0

You can now use a signature to create an AppID flow using a single Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) user to natively connect to OCI endpoints. See Fixed Credentials Authentication Mechanisms.

March 18
Action Chain Tests Visual Builder now provides test automation capabilities for action chains, helping you to adopt test driven development. A new declarative interface helps you to define tests for the action chains in your web and mobile applications that you can run individually or simultaneously. See Test Action Chains. March 18
New Array Data Provider The page model provides a new built-in type, vb/ArrayDataProvider2, which new applications should use. The legacy vb/ArrayDataProvider type is supported in existing applications. ArrayDataProvider2 does not allow writes to individual properties of ArrayDataProvider2.data, unlike the legacy ArrayDataProvider. Instead, ArrayDataProvider2 supports using either the fireDataProviderEventAction or the assignVariablesAction to mutate data, while the legacy ArrayDataProvider supports only the assignVariablesAction. See Array Data Provider 2. March 18
Custom JET and Runtime Versions for Mobile Applications You can now specify custom JET and runtime versions for mobile applications where previously you could only do this for web and progressive web apps. See Specify Custom JET and Runtime Versions for Applications. March 18
Favicons for Web Applications Oracle Visual Builder now provides two default favicons for use in web applications and Progressive Web Apps. One favicon is for use in light mode and the other is for use in dark mode. Overwrite the default favicons if you want to use your own favicons. See About Application Resources. March 18
Mobile Build Configurations

The mobile build configurations that you define for Android and iOS must be assigned to an application profile. The checkboxes that you previously used to specify a default build configuration for publish or stage operations have been removed. See Build Mobile Applications.

March 18
Business Processes Application profiles can be used to manage the connection to the Process Servers that your visual applications use. See Configure the Connection to a Process Server. March 18
Open URL Action for Native Mobile Applications The existing Open URL action has been updated to support opening local file attachments on native mobile applications. See Open URL Action. March 18
$application.deployment The $application.deployment built-in variable has been added to facilitate code sharing between web, mobile, and progressive web applications developed using Visual Builder. See Built-in Variables. March 18
Create File Menu Action

A Create File menu action is now available on folders in the source navigator tree to allow you to create custom files and subfolders almost anywhere in your app.

The following are the exceptions where Visual Builder does not show the Create File menu action on a folder:
  • Some folders are special and do not allow for the creation of singular files:
    • Root folders for web and mobile apps
    • Any folder in the hierarchy with the name flows or components
  • Some folders already have a Create action that creates singular files, in which case adding a Create File action would be superfluous:
    • resources/js
    • resources/css

New vbDataProviderNotification Event Listener

You can register an event listener for vbDataProviderNotification code events to display any errors from the Service Data Provider.

March 18
Improvements to the Events Editor

The following improvements were made to the Events editor:

  1. Event Payloads are shown with full details in the Mapper. If there is no payload for an event it is not shown.
  2. When creating a new listener for Events, new action chains are populated with input parameters matching the event's payload and are also mapped automatically.
  3. The default action chain created for vbBeforeEnter and vbBeforeExit listeners returns a payload with cancel set to false, plus a description describing how to cancel this action.
March 18
Secure Storage

Sensitive data such as passwords and certificates are no longer stored in areas of storage excluded from versioning and export (private storage). Instead, they are stored in the new secure storage of Visual Builder, which is a repository of sensitive pieces of data keyed by a unique key that is stored in the source. This makes it possible to securely transfer sensitive data between Visual Builder instances. Source files, such as mobile build configuration files, now contain references to the secure storage rather than private storage. Visual Builder updates all existing applications to use secure storage.

Reset an Expired Password or ATP Wallet for Your Oracle DB Instance

Visual Builder administrators can now reset an expired password or an ATP wallet for the Oracle DB instances that you use to replace the database provisioned with your Visual Builder instance. See Reset an Expired Password or ATP Wallet for Your Oracle DB Instance.

March 18
Business Object REST Endpoints You can now add or remove the endpoints that the business objects in your visual application expose. Using a new business object resource editor, you can configure the business object to include only the endpoints that you require, thereby reducing the size of the metadata file that describes your business object REST endpoints. See Add or Remove Exposed Endpoints.

Note:

For existing applications, especially those that contain many business objects, we strongly recommend that you trim the exposed endpoints of each business object to include only those that you require. You can apply the default setting to expose only the first level of endpoints for each object, but if deeper nested endpoints were included in the object's resource definition, you must modify the default selection to include those endpoints.
March 18
Business Object Data Manager The Data tab now includes menu buttons that allow you to duplicate data rows and to filter the fields that display in the data table. See Edit the Data in Business Objects. March 18
Business Object Diagram Business object diagrams now show object accessor field names by default in a separate field of the business object node. You can disable the default behaviour using the Fields and Show Object Accessors menu entries that you access from the menu for the business object diagram. Also, you can now save business object diagrams to your computer as SVG or PNG graphic files. See Work with the Business Object Diagrammer. March 18
Visual Builder Grunt Tasks
  • A new task, vb-package, can be used to package visual application sources. It can also perform application optimization (vb-optimize) and generate a build manifest (vb-manifest). See vb-package.
  • The vb-manifest task now includes two new options. The xx-version option allows you to set an alternative version value for the visual extension manifest, and the git-repository-url option specifies the URL for the Git repository. See vb-manifest.
  • The vb-build task now includes two options, cdnURL and insertBaseURL, that facilitate the hosting of application assets on a Content Delivery Network (CDN). See Host an Application on a Content Delivery Network (CDN).

Lists of Values Endpoints for Oracle Cloud Applications

This is not a new feature, but be aware that Oracle Cloud Applications (OCA) has changed the way that it manages lists of values endpoints. The service connections that you created in visual applications prior to this release might use an older version of the definition for lists of values endpoints from OCA. This does not create problems for existing applications, but we advise you to use the Replace definitions for all selected endpoints button on the service connections in your visual applications that use these types of endpoints to refresh all definitions. Clicking the Replace definitions for all selected endpoints button marks an older version of an endpoint as obsolete, but does not remove it from your apps as a web or mobile app might reference this endpoint in some screens. In Visual Builder’s Endpoints tab, a strike through appears for an endpoint that has been marked as obsolete.

For best performance and to use the latest way of surfacing the endpoints for lists of values, we recommend that you manually replace the obsolete endpoints in your web and mobile apps to use the newer definition for lists of values endpoints from OCA.

The following image shows the Replace definitions for all selected endpoints button. For information about service connections in visual applications, see About Service Connections.

Oracle ERP Cloud Adapter, Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter, and Oracle CX Sales and B2B Service Adapter - Simplification of the Connections page The Connections page for the Oracle ERP Cloud Adapter, Oracle HCM Cloud Adapter, and Oracle CX Sales and B2B Service Adapter (formally Oracle Sales Cloud Adapter) previously required you to enter the service catalog URL, the interface catalog URL and events catalog URL. Customers found that gathering this information was painstaking and error prone. This enhancement greatly simplifies the connection page by asking you to simply enter the cloud base URL, which is a URL pattern, starting with https:// (for example, https://customer_chosen_domain_name.fa.DC.oraclecloud.com). Oracle Integration deciphers the rest of the information pertaining to service catalog, interface catalog, and event catalog URLs automatically.

REST Adapter - Octet-Stream support for inbound (trigger) direction REST continues to be an important technological pivot for integrating systems in a simple, rapid, and revolutionary way. Oracle Integration further enhances the REST Adapter to enable sending binary files to REST APIs through the application/octet-stream content-type. This enables you to send binary files read from one end to another end seamlessly. As an example, you can build an integration flow to expose a REST endpoint that can accept structured/unstructured content such as CSV-formatted files and PDF documents as raw/binary data and have them processed and sent to downstream applications such as Oracle ERP Cloud/sFTP servers.

See REST Adapter Trigger Request Page and REST Adapter Trigger Response Page in Using the REST Adapter with Oracle Integration.

Publishing interfaces for Oracle Integration flows as OpenAPI documents Oracle Integration continues to adopt open standards for publishing integration flows and simplify consumption of Oracle Integration flows from external systems. In the same endeavor, the REST Adapter in Oracle Integration has started automatically publishing OpenAPI documents for all of the Oracle Integration flows that have the REST Adapter as a trigger. OpenAPI has become a de facto standard for describing a REST API. You can download the OpenAPI documents and use the documents to build the client applications for consuming the Oracle Integration flow exposed as a REST API. January 21
Oracle CX Sales and B2B Service Adapter and Oracle ERP Cloud Adapter - Custom business event support Oracle Integration can consume custom business events that are configured on custom objects in Oracle Fusion Applications.
