Oracle HCM Cloud document records upload with an OIC integration

Hi, community,

I keep exploring OIC features and find them quite powerful and flexible.
In this blog, I would like to share a scenario to automate document records upload into Oracle HCM Cloud I came up with.
It might be useful to load a batch of scans of personal documents in bulk for many employees and my scenario meets this requirement.
I accommodated the On-Premises Connectivity Agent functionality to create a local shared stage area where user can put scans in the PDF format with the certain name convention like: <PersonNumber>_<DocumentType>_decription.pdf

Check this blog for details on how to install and configure a connectivity agent.

My OIC integration polls this shared area and parses a filename and loads the documents for employees into Oracle HCM Cloud.

For demonstration purposes, the integration handles only two document types but can be easily extended to the required number of document types.

Below is a short video that demonstrates a scenario in action:

I hope you find it useful.
Feel free to reach to me and we will help you in building any complicated integration in Cloud.

Building Oracle HCM Cloud outbound integration scenarios based on OCI resources

In the last couple of years, we have seen Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is getting a reputation for reliability and becoming a key player in the cloud market.
A few months ago I also cleared Oracle Cloud Infrastructure 2019 Certified Architect Professional and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure 2019 Certified Architect Associate certifications.

It’s now time to get hands dirty with OCI services. I have my personal free OCI account and the idea was to use only free resources to try to build a practical solution.

Well, recently I have been asked for the possible ways how to synchronize downstream or co-existent applications with the HR data that are maintained in the Oracle HCM Cloud system in real time. It depends on detailed requirements but in general, there is a solution that allows polling HR events (referential data updates as well as employment transactions). I am talking about the Atom feeds feature. You can review my blog where I have explained the Atom feeds feature in details.
