FlexDeploy Loves OIC: Manage Integrations with Connections by Dan Reynebeau
Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) provides the ability to develop an integration in the cloud. The integration can connect cloud and/or on-premise applications, however, these integrations are maintained directly in the cloud and not in any Source Code Management (SCM) system. Deploying an integration from one OIC instance to another OIC instance is a manual process. It requires exporting an integration from one instance and importing that integration into the next instance. In addition, the associated connections must be sync’d between instances. Due to the manual nature of managing the integrations, there is very limited delivery lifecycle management.
FlexDeploy provides build, deploy, release automation and delivery lifecycle management to eliminate the manual deployment process and easily show what integration version is in which environment. In this blog, we will show how to configure FlexDeploy to
- communicate with an OIC instance
- export/import an integration
- manage the associated connections in a single operation to simplify the integration deployment
The configuration starts with the creation of several topology components such as environments, instances and endpoints. I won’t cover the creation of these components however each of the links will provide the user guide pages for each component. Once the topology components are created and associated with each other, the environment/instances will be created on the topology overview and allow configuration of each environment/instance combination. This will be the main configuration to be able to communicate with the OIC instance. Select Topology->Topology Overview. The page will show a colored circle per environment with red meaning not configured to green meaning fully configured. Read the complete article here.
