Introduction to B2B for Oracle Integration Cloud

In the fast-paced world of business, efficient and seamless integration between trading partners is not just a luxury—it’s a necessity. The B2B management platform for Oracle Integration Cloud provides a robust solution to streamline business-to-business (B2B) communication, ensuring smooth and secure data exchanges. This article is the first in a series where we will explore the various aspects of the B2B trading platform in Oracle Integration Cloud.

B2B in e-commerce, EDI and EDIFACT

Trading is a big part of Business-to-Business (B2B) e-commerce, where businesses extend their operations to seamlessly connect with trading partners. This approach includes traditional business practices, well-established business documents, and industry-proven messaging services. Successful B2B e-commerce demands a robust, unified business process platform that offers comprehensive end-to-end instance tracking, ensuring complete visibility and auditing capabilities.

FSCM BI Cloud Adapter BI View Object to Database Lineage Mapping Spreadsheet

There is a spreadsheet which is published by Oracle BI Cloud Adapter Development that documents Fusion ERP and SCM BI View Objects and their corresponding database tables and columns. This post is on community.oracle.com and for a lot of customers not accessible.

Customers can use this spreadsheet to search for BI View Objects (BIVO) to trace the lineage from a BIVO to database tables and columns or vice versa.

Includes R13 releases 13.19A, 13.19B, 13.19C, 13.19D,13.20A,13.20B, 13.20C, 13.20D, 13.21A, 13.21B, 13.21C, 13.21D, 13.22A, 13.22B, 13.22C, 13.22D, 13.23A, 13.23B, 13.23C, and 13.23D.

Pre-requirements for creating Fusion ERP connection in Oracle Integration Cloud

To be able to successfully create a connection between Oracle Integration Cloud and Oracle Fusion Apps, for example ERP Cloud, there are some pre-requirements to perform. If we want to connect Integration Cloud with Fusion Apps it is in most cases required to import OAuth signing keys from the OCI IAM used by Integration Cloud into Fusion Apps Console. This article provides a step-by-step guide on setting up these pre-requirements.

In our last article, we tackled the process of linking Oracle Integration Cloud with Fusion Apps, like ERP Cloud, through OAuth 2.0. As we navigated the setup, we detailed the creation of two confidential applications in OCI IAM to tap into the Fusion Apps Endpoint URL. But before you dive into the Oracle Integration Cloud configurations, there are essential prerequisites to bear in mind. Neglecting these could lead you to grapple with numerous CASDK-0004 errors when you give the connection in Integration Cloud a test run.

How to create Confidential Applications in OCI IAM for Invoking Fusion Apps Endpoint using OAuth

When seeking a more secure connection method to access Fusion Apps Endpoints (e.g., REST API or Integration Cloud Adapter) beyond basic authentication, OAuth 2.0 is the preferred choice. To implement OAuth 2.0 with Fusion Apps to connect Integration Cloud, you must configure two confidential applications in OCI IAM (formerly known as IDCS – Identity Cloud Service). This article provides a step-by-step guide on setting up these applications for a Fusion Apps Endpoint.

In this introductory blog post, we’ll address how to seamlessly connect Oracle Integration Cloud to Fusion Apps, like ERP Cloud, using OAuth 2.0. Our journey begins with establishing a confidential application in OCI IAM. This crucial step aids in accessing the Fusion Apps Endpoint URL.
