Oracle HCM Cloud REST API how-to miniseries I

Hi colleagues,

I would like to start a short series about using REST API in Oracle HCM Cloud. As far as you know, you can use Oracle REST APIs to view and manage data stored in Oracle Applications Cloud and those can be used as a bridge between external applications and Oracle HCM Cloud.
There is a big list of APIs available: https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/saas/human-resources/20a/farws/index.html

GET hcmRestApi/resources/latest/emps?fields=PersonNumber

Customers realized that there is no OOTB integration between TBE and Fusion products like Taleo EE has and were forced to develop custom integration scenarios. But as I have been convinced many times Oracle makes huge investments only if they sure for one hundred percent in quick return. It seems this time is coming.
