36 Managing Task Manager Integrations

You can enable Task Manager tasks to include integrations with external applications.

An Integration requires an execution URL for user tasks and an optional set of parameters. The execution URL launches the external program, and the parameters pass information required for the task to the external program. For example, the Approve Journals Integration contains parameters such as the Point of View dimension values for the journal.

To manage Task Manager Integrations, you must have the Service Administrator role.

When you create an Integration, you select one of these task types:

End User

Users must perform and validate. The task might be a generic task such as submitting data, or it might require product integration to facilitate or validate its completion.

Process Automation

These integrations are automatically executed in external applications when their Start date and time are reached, and their predecessor tasks are completed, for example, an overnight feed from a General Ledger. These tasks are often executed after working hours. They require limited user interaction and do not have Assignees.

Event Monitoring

These are based on events that occur in external applications, for example Approve Journals.

Task Manager provides these pre-built Integrations in Task Manager Integrations with Oracle Cloud and On-Premises Applications:

  • Cloud Integrations: End User and Process Automation integrations for EPM Cloud Connections.

  • Cloud Integrations: Oracle Fusion integrations.

  • On-Premises End User and Event Monitoring Integrations.

  • On-Premises Oracle E-Business Suite General Ledger, Accounts Payable, and Accounts Receivable Integrations.

If you require any other Integrations for Cloud or On Premises, you can create Custom Integrations. See Creating Custom Task Manager Integrations.
