Triggering an OIC integration via OCI Events – the Oracle Functions Approach by Stan Tanev
In a two-part blog series I am exploring the available options in triggering an Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) integration whenever a resource state change occurs within Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). One example of this event based pattern is the ability to trigger an OIC integration as soon as a file is uploaded to OCI Object Storage, thereby removing the need for any scheduled based integrations that rely on file polling.
In my previous blog, I provided some context and background on the OCI Event service and the available options that we have in triggering an OIC integration. Namely these are the OCI Notifications, Functions, and Streaming services. My previous blog also explored the first of these patterns, and detailed how this event based pattern can be achieved using the OCI Notification Service. In this follow up article I will cover how we can use Oracle Functions to achieve the same outcome.
Intro to Oracle Functions:
To recap, Oracle Functions is a managed, serverless and elastic Functions-as-a-Service offering that is powered by the open-source Fn Project. You can use Oracle Functions when you want to deploy your code or application, without the administrative overhead of maintaining any infrastructure or operating system (OS) software. Oracle Functions ensures your app is highly-available, scalable, secure, and monitored. Read the complete article here.
