Configure a Remote SAF Context

Only Oracle Cloud at Customer This topic applies only to Oracle Cloud at Customer.

When using AppToCloud to create an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance, you must configure the location of any Remote Store-and-Forward (SAF) Contexts that were present in your source Oracle WebLogic Server domain.

The SAF service enables WebLogic Server to deliver JMS messages reliably between destinations running in different WebLogic Server domains. A remote SAF context defines the location of the remote server or cluster. You can choose from these options:

  • Select a specific server or cluster in an existing Oracle Java Cloud Service instance. Both service instances must be in the same identity domain.

  • Enter the URL of the remote SAF context. If this is the location of another Oracle Java Cloud Service instance, you must also enable network communication between this service instance and your new one.

To configure a remote SAF context:

  1. From the Additional Service Details page of the AppToCloud instance creation wizard, expand JMS Module.
  2. Expand the JMS module containing the remote SAF context.
  3. Expand Remote SAF Context and select the name of the remote SAF context.
  4. Click Disable if you want to remove this remote SAF context from the service instance. Otherwise continue to the next step.
  5. Update the configuration for this remote SAF context:
    Field Description

    Name

    The name of the remote SAF context you selected. This field is read-only.

    JCS Instance

    Choose one of these options:

    • Select another Oracle Java Cloud Service instance to which this domain will connect for this remote SAF context.

    • Select User Provided URL.

    URL

    Enter the URL that this domain will use to connect to the remote server or cluster.

    This field is only applicable if you choose User Provided URL.

    Cluster

    Select a cluster within the target Oracle Java Cloud Service instance.

    This field is not shown if you choose User Provided URL.

    Server

    Choose one of these options:

    • Select All Servers in Cluster.

    • Select a specific server within the target Oracle Java Cloud Service instance.

    This field is not shown if you choose User Provided URL.

    Protocol

    The default protocol that is used for communication between multiple WebLogic Server domains is t3. If a different protocol is required, enter it here.

    This field is not shown if you choose User Provided URL.

    Username

    Enter the name of a user that is authorized to access JMS destinations on this remote server, if one is required.

    Password

    Enter the user’s password, if a username is required.

    Bypass Precheck

    By default, Oracle Java Cloud Service will validate the connection to this remote server and continue with the AppToCloud import operation only if it succeeds. Select this check box to skip the validation of this resource.

  6. Click OK to accept your changes. Repeat these steps for each additional remote SAF context on this page.

    A check mark icon indicates a resource that you have already configured.

  7. Continue with the creation of this service instance.
