27 Administering Oracle Content and Experience Integration

As an administrator, you can configure and synchronize Oracle Content and Experience content with WebCenter Sites. Site developers and content contributors can access content, such as images, articles, and files, that is available in the Oracle Content and Experience; and use them in WebCenter Sites. You can synchronize entire content or on-demand basis.

Note:

  • Oracle Content and Experience assets are read-only assets.

  • Using this feature, data can be fetched from Oracle Content and Experience to WebCenter Sites, but Oracle Content and Experience cannot fetch data from WebCenter Sites.

  • If you modify and publish any content in Oracle Content and Experience, you can get the latest content in WebCenter Sites without any additional modifications in WebCenter Sites.

  • If you add any new content in Oracle Content and Experience, you can synchronize its references in WebCenter Sites; and use that content through the WebCenter Sites UI to build sites.

27.1 Configuring Oracle Content and Experience Instances in a Website

You can configure Oracle Content and Experience with WebCenter Sites to enable the content contributors to access and use content that is managed in the Oracle Content and Experience repository. There are two ways you can configure Oracle Content and Experience: to synchronize entire content of a channel (A channel can be associated with one or more repositories), or to synchronize assets on demand. To synchronize assets on demand, you need to create an asset picker. To filter the results, you need to define optional parameters such as asset types, media groups, and keywords.

To add an Oracle Content and Experience instance:
  1. In the General Admin tree, expand the External Integrations node, expand the Configurations node, and then double-click Add New.
  2. In the New Configuration form, enter the Name of the new Oracle Content and Experience instance that you want to configure, select the Type as Oracle Content and Experience.
  3. In the Sites drop-down list, select the site for which you want to configure this Oracle Content and Experience instance.
  4. In the Configuration form, enter the Base URL, Username, Password, Channel Name, Channel Id, and Channel Token.
    Fields Description
    Base URL Enter the Base URL of Oracle Content and Experience in this field.

    The base URL is that which you get after logging into the Oracle Content and Experience instance.

    Username Enter the user name of the Oracle Content and Experience user in this field. Username should be prefixed with the domain name. For example, domain1.bob@oracle.com, where domain1 is the name of the domain.

    The user name is the same as that of your Oracle Content and Experience instance.

    Password Enter the corresponding password of the Oracle Content and Experience user in this field.

    The password is the same as that of your Oracle Content and Experience instance.

    • If you want to synchronize entire content stored in Oracle Content and Experience in one go, click Synchronize Content.
    • To synchronize specific content (on a need basis), create an asset picker and enable it for the required fields of the Contributor interface. See Configuring Your Attribute Editor to Pick Oracle Content and Experience Assets. Embed content as described in Embed Content in Other Domains in Administering Oracle Content and Experience. Then in Oracle Content and Experience administration security settings, enable embedded content and add the Oracle Content and Experience URL.

27.2 Configuring Oracle Content and Experience Properties

You can integrate Oracle Content and Experience with WebCenter Sites by configuring few properties through the External Integrations node under the General Admin tree in the Admin interface.

See Properties in the Content and Experience Cloud Category in the Property Files Reference for Oracle WebCenter Sites.

27.3 Publishing Oracle Content and Experience Assets

Just like any other WebCenter Sites assets, you can publish Oracle Content and Experience assets from WebCenter Sites.

Before you start publishing any Oracle Content and Experience assets on to the production system, ensure that the production system is also configured with Oracle Content and Experience credentials (same as source system). You can mirror the Oracle Content and Experience tables (WCS_ContentCloudSubtype and ContentCloudPubTargets) from the source system to the destination system, which may be a production system.
