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.

    Note:

    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.
