Oracle HCM Cloud: Mass Load Global Temporary Assignment Transactions with the Oracle Integration Cloud Service (OIC)

Hi, community,

I have been noticing an increasing demand for the Oracle Integration Cloud Service (OIC) for the last couple of years. It is getting extremely strong and keep expanding on new markets. OIC provides a zero-coding (I would say low code) approach for building, deploying, and managing enterprise integration services.
I decided to expand my integration knowledge with this service (inspired by Alex MacDonald GitHub) and build some useful scenarios.
In this blog, I would like to share my experience working with OIC.
You might have read my article – Oracle HCM Cloud: Mass Load Internal Mobility Employee Transactions with a Worker REST API.
It shows how to load internal mobility transactions with a Python code.
I decided to replicate the same process with the OIC service.
OIC is supplied with a large set of predefined adapters. So I used the Oracle HCM Cloud adapter to invoke HCM rest APIs.
It took me two days to build up a simple integration process. It is just for demonstration purposes and, of course, it should be expanded with error/file handlings, etc.

This is the integration orchestration flow:

Below are the orchestrion flow steps:

  • Read file from SFTP
  • For each person number in the input file
  • Get an employee self link
  • Get work relationships by provided link
  • Pass a WR link to the changeLegalEmployer operation

Concludes the post a brief video that demonstrates the described integration scenario in action:

I hope you find this useful.

SY,
