Setting Integration Type Properties

You can set properties for the Integration Type, such as the associated application and End-User tasks.

For an End-User task, you can select the single sign-on (SSO) Parameter option to enable users to access an external web application without being prompted for authentication. You can use a SSO parameter for an external application if that application is integrated with the Oracle EPM System SSO framework.

To set Integration Type properties:

  1. From Properties, for Name, enter a name for the Integration Type.
  2. Enter an Integration Type Code, for example, HFM_CONS for the Hyperion Financial Management Consolidate integration task.

    The code is used to execute the Integration Type and to map updates to an Integration Type from a file import.

  3. Optional: In Description, enter a description for the integration task.
  4. In Application, select an application to which the task belongs.


    You can maintain the list of applications from the Manage Applications icon in the Manage Integration Types dialog box.

  5. For Execution Type, select End User Task and select options:
    • End User Endpoint: To enter parameters for an End-User task, the End User Endpoint should contain those parameters in these formats:

      $Parameter Type Code$, for example $COLORS$. The system replaces the parameter tokens in the End User Endpoint with the information you specified for the task parameters.

    • Show in-line (Optional): Select whether to display the URL in line within the Task Actions dialog.

    • SSO Parameter (Optional): Specify the name of the SSO parameter for your application to include when executing the End-User task URL to the external application. If you do not specify an SSO parameter, the system uses the End User URL.

  6. Optional: Click Parameters.
