How to trigger an integration from OIA batch assess service

Anja van de Groenekan

Hi,

I need to integrate an OIA batch assess service implementation with an integration platform. The platform supplies generic services, is it possible to trigger it from OIA? Do we need to go through Oracle Integration, I understand that this is a separate application. So it does not come with OIA?

If so: is there anyway to go about it from OIA itself?

Thanks Anja

    Hi Anja

    I'm sure there will be official answers coming soon but here are some starting points

    Oracle Integration Cloud Service is a separate product. It does not come with IA.

    OICS is just like any other integration platform. Essentially you design a flow, and IA is maybe one step on that flow, with steps behind and steps after. Within that context IA can therefore be invoked as a step in the flow, with input coming from previous steps and the output heading into the  next steps. A visual mapping tool allows you to map inout and output for IA so that the data flows in and out and on to the next steps.

    This process is not unique to Oracle Integration Cloud Service - the invocation, mapping and out can be achieved theoretically in any integration platform or application that has some sort of workflow concept and integration capabilities. But the big advantage of OICS is that it does a lot of things natively (like read metadata or refresh definitions) with OPA that would have tro be programmed in other platforms.

    Intellgent Advisor is not a workflow engine - so an Assess request cannot trigger anything directly - it requires an intermediate platform or application to get the response and do whatever makes sense for the integration process. What application exactly is your integration platform?

    Cheers
