FBDI Automation Service in OIC



FBDI Automation Service in OIC

Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) provides a feature called “File-Based Data Import (FBDI) Automation Service” to facilitate the automation of file-based data imports into Oracle Cloud applications. This service is particularly useful for integrating data from external sources into Oracle Cloud applications using FBDI templates. Here are the key components and steps involved in setting up FBDI Automation Service in OIC:


  1. FBDI Template: Start by creating or obtaining the FBDI template specific to the Oracle Cloud application you are working with (e.g., Oracle Financials, HCM, etc.). This template defines the structure of the data you intend to import.
  2. Integration in OIC: Create an integration in Oracle Integration Cloud that will handle the data transfer between the FBDI template and your Oracle Cloud application. This integration should include the necessary mappings and transformations.
  3. FTP Server: You’ll need access to an FTP server or a secure file storage location where you can place your FBDI template files for processing.
  4. Security Configuration: Configure secure connections and credentials for accessing the FTP server to ensure data security during transfer.
  5. Automation Configuration: Set up the FBDI Automation Service in Oracle Integration Cloud. This involves configuring the service to monitor the FTP server for incoming files and trigger the integration when new files are detected.
  6. Business Object Configuration: Configure the relevant business object in your Oracle Cloud application to accept data from the FBDI file. Map the FBDI template columns to the fields in your application.
  7. Data Transformation: Within your OIC integration, create data mappings and transformations to convert the data from the FBDI format to the format expected by your Oracle Cloud application.
  8. Error Handling: Implement error handling mechanisms within your OIC integration to handle any data validation or processing errors that may occur during the FBDI import.
  9. Testing: Thoroughly test the end-to-end process, from placing the FBDI file in the FTP server to the successful data import into your Oracle Cloud application.
  10. Monitoring and Logging: Set up monitoring and logging to track the progress of your FBDI imports and to troubleshoot any issues that may arise.
  11. Automation Scheduler: Depending on your requirements, you can schedule the FBDI Automation Service to run at specific intervals or in response to certain events.
  12. Documentation: Document the entire setup, including configurations, mappings, and error handling procedures, for future reference and maintenance.
