    EBS R12.2.4 Mobile Apps

    Beauty_and_dBest

      Hi ALL,

       

      EBS R12.2.4

      RHEL 6.5

       

       

      We have setup the mobile apps using Note: 1642431.1

      Oracle E-Business Suite Mobile Apps Administrator's Guide for Release 12.1 and Release 12.2 (Doc ID 1642431.1)

      I have downloaded and installed the Oracle Approvals from Google Play.

      It's asking for the URL to Get Started.

      Would you know what URL to use?

       

       

      Thanks a lot,

      jc

              Hi Xaheer and ALL,

               

              Can you share me link to blog articles that had configured Mobile Apps setup?

              I read the docs Oracle E-Business Suite Mobile Apps Administrator's Guide for Release 12.1 and Release 12.2 (Doc ID 1642431.1) but I can not understand it correctly

               

              The docs mentioned 5 steps to do by Database and Application Administrator:

              1. Install server patch for mobile app. (completed)

              2. Enable and configure mobile app on server ( not done)

              3. Grant mobile app access role to responsibilities (not done)

              4. Complete additional steps required by app

              5. Communicate about app to users.

                  a) How to get app (via download)

                  b) Which server URL to use

               

              I am stuck at step #2, I do not know what to enter in this page:

              Capture2.PNG

              Please help...

               

              Thanks.

                  Hi Chi,

                   

                  That is similar docs to what I am following

                  I still do not understand where to start.

                  Actually the functional consultant tried to do the setup, but  she had missed something because we can not login using the url.

                  Do you have any idea how to check the setup she made?

                   

                  Thanks a lot,

                    You simply need to add the URL to your DNS server.

                    The mobile device tries to obtain the IP address of the URL but fails because it is not found in the DNS records.

                    Let your network admin do this for you. It is an alternative to using the hosts file.

                      Hi Bashar, Xaheer, Pravin, Chi. and ALL.

                       

                      We do not have Network admin

                      This is just a test server that is hooked to the internet and we use the public IP as DNS to access it.

                      This is  to simulate a "cloud" setup.

                       

                      Based on the docs > Setting Up the Mobile Apps

                       

                      Can you help me find the process to set the DNS?

                      Why is it okay when we use the laptop?

                       

                      Can you please check if there are steps I missed?

                      I did the following process:

                      Capture.PNG

                       

                       

                       

                      Capture4.PNG

                      If we use IP (not DNS)  the modules get displayed but in read only mode, and we can not dig or enter inside due to permission error.

                       

                      Please help...

                       

                      Thanks.

                        Hi,

                         

                        Can you help me find the process to set the DNS?

                        Why is it okay when we use the laptop?

                        Setting up DNS is a system administrator task. The thing what you can verify is make sure your FQDN is able resolve over the internet.

                         

                        Another action you can ask your internet service provided to update your FQDN or application access URL in their DNS server to make it work.

                         

                        thanks,

                          Why is that in my laptop does not have issues with FQDN? 

                          Is this a kind of firewall? Why is the docs note not able to mention it?

                          Can you test it on your test instance? e.g. your test server (used in ur blog articles) hooked to the internet

                           

                          Thanks.

                            FQDN -- Fully Qualified Domain Name

                            You can access www.oracle.com from your laptop as well as mobile because your Internet Service Provider have DNS (domain name server) which knows ipaddress of www.oracle.com.

                            Similar way you will also have to setup your servername/url so that it can be accessed via internet. If this has to be accessed only in your internal network setting up correct DNS entries are required and this can be done by your Network Administrator.

                            Setting up all infrastructure by single person is not at all possible, that's why you have separate roles like Netwwork Admin, Platform Admin, Storage Engineer etc. Take help of those folks. You just need to know whom to contact for which task and what exactly are requirements

                              We have a mobile app that needs FQDN(Fully Qualified Domain Name) to be able to resolve over the internet.

                              Kindly update our FQDN or application access URL to your DNS server to make our mobile app works.

                               

                              Kindest regards.

                                Hi Pravin, Xaheer, Bashar, Chi and ALL.

                                 

                                I am testing it on Amazon cloud as well

                                 

                                I found this docs below. Which items should I need to do?

                                Is it found here?  Thanks.

                                 

                                 

                                Using DNS with Your VPC

                                 

                                Amazon EC2 instances need IP addresses to communicate. Public IP addresses enable communication over the Internet, while private IP addresses enable communication within the network of the instance (either EC2-Classic or a VPC).

                                Domain Name System (DNS) is a standard by which names used on the Internet are resolved to their corresponding IP addresses. A DNS hostname is a name that uniquely and absolutely names a computer; it's composed of a host name and a domain name. DNS servers resolve DNS hostnames to their corresponding IP addresses.

                                We provide an Amazon DNS server. To use your own DNS server, update the DHCP options set for your VPC. For more information, see DHCP Options Sets.

                                To enable an EC2 instance to be publicly accessible, it must have a public IP address, a DNS hostname, and DNS resolution.

                                Viewing DNS Hostnames for Your EC2 Instance

                                When you launch an instance into the EC2-Classic platform or into a default VPC, we provide the instance with public and private DNS hostnames. Instances that you launch into a nondefault VPC might have public and private DNS hostnames, depending on the settings you specify for the VPC and for the instance.You can view the DNS hostnames for a running instance or a network interface using the Amazon EC2 console or the command line.

                                Instance

                                To view DNS hostnames for an instance using the console

                                1. Open the Amazon EC2 console.
                                2. In the navigation pane, click Instances.
                                3. Select the instance from the list.
                                4. In the Description tab in the details pane, review the values of the Public DNS and Private DNS fields.

                                To view DNS hostnames for an instance using the command lineYou can use one of the following commands. For more information about these command line interfaces, see Accessing Amazon VPC.

                                Network Interface

                                To view DNS hostnames for a network interface using the console

                                1. Open the Amazon EC2 console.
                                2. In the navigation pane, click Network Interfaces.

                                Updating DNS Support for Your VPC

                                When you launch an instance into a VPC, we provide the instance with public and private DNS hostnames only if DNS hostnames are enabled for the VPC. By default, DNS hostnames are enabled only for default VPCs and VPCs that you create using the VPC wizard in the VPC console.We support the following VPC attributes to control DNS support. Be sure to set both attributes totrue if you want your instances to have public DNS hostnames that are accessible from the Internet.

                                AttributeDescription
                                enableDnsHostnamesIndicates whether the instances launched in the VPC get DNS hostnames. If this attribute is true, instances in the VPC get DNS hostnames; otherwise, they do not. If you want your instances to get DNS hostnames, you must also set the enableDnsSupport attribute to true.
                                enableDnsSupportIndicates whether the DNS resolution is supported for the VPC. If this attribute is false, the Amazon provided DNS service in the VPC that resolves public DNS hostnames to IP addresses is not enabled. If this attribute is true, queries to the Amazon provided DNS server at the 169.254.169.253 IP address, or the reserved IP address at the base of the VPC network range "plus two" will succeed. For more information, seeAmazon DNS Server.
                                The Amazon DNS server cannot resolve private DNS hostnames if your VPC's IP address range falls outside of the private IP addresses ranges specified by RFC 1918.If you enable DNS hostnames and DNS support in a VPC that didn't previously support them, an instance that you already launched into that VPC gets a public DNS hostname if it has a public IP address or an Elastic IP address.To describe and update DNS support for a VPC using the console
                                1. Open the Amazon VPC console.
                                2. In the navigation pane, click Your VPCs.
                                3. Select the VPC from the list.
                                4. Review the information in the Summary tab. In this example, both settings are enabled.
                                  The DNS Settings tab
                                5. To update these settings, click the Actions list, and select Edit DNS Resolution or Edit DNS Hostnames. In the dialog box that opens, select Yes or No, and then click Save.

                                To describe DNS support for a VPC using the command lineYou can use one of the following commands. For more information about these command line interfaces, see Accessing Amazon VPC.

                                Using Private Hosted Zones

                                If you want to access the resources in your VPC using custom DNS domain names, such as example.com, instead of using private IP addresses or AWS-provided private DNS hostnames, you can create a private hosted zone in Amazon Route 53. A private hosted zone is a container that holds information about how you want to route traffic for a domain and its subdomains within one or more VPCs without exposing your resources to the Internet. You can then create Amazon Route 53 resource record sets, which determine how Amazon Route 53 responds to queries for your domain and subdomains. For example, if you want browser requests for example.com to be routed to a web server in your VPC, you'll create an A record in your private hosted zone and specify the IP address of that web server. For more information about creating a private hosted zone, see Working with Private Hosted Zones in the Amazon Route 53 Developer Guide.

                                To access resources using custom DNS domain names, you must be connected to an instance within your VPC. From your instance, you can test that your resource in your private hosted zone is accessible from its custom DNS name by using the ping command; for example, ping mywebserver.example.com. (You must ensure that your instance's security group rules allow inbound ICMP traffic for the ping command to work.)

                                Private hosted zones do not support transitive relationships outside of the VPC; for example, you cannot access your resources using their custom private DNS names from the other side of a VPN connection.

                                Important

                                If you are using custom DNS domain names defined in a private hosted zone in Amazon Route 53, you must set the following VPC attributes to true: enableDnsHostnamesand enableDnsSupport. For more information, see Updating DNS Support for Your VPC.

                                  if you are hosting it on AWS you can easily get it setup. Just give them your requirement and they will setup everything

                                    Actually, they leave us alone to do build it.  It is a low cost, no support test instance.

                                     

                                    Thanks.
