Integration Cloud Who Are We - Using Headers to Identify IP Addresses by Antony Reynolds
Identifying Integration Cloud IP Addresses
In this blog post I will show how to identify IP addresses associated with Integration Cloud.
The Challenge
When whitelisting services we need to know their IP address. This is easy if we need to identify the inbound address to Integration Cloud, we can just resolve the Integration Cloud hostname to get the IP address of the Integration Cloud load balancer to be whitelisted for inbound traffic to integration Cloud. This is useful if we need to whitelsit outbound calls through a firewall to Integration Cloud. However for outbound traffic from Integration Cloud we need to do a little more. This is needed when the target of integration Cloud invokes need to whitelist their caller.

Object Storage with Oracle Integration Cloud – Part 1 by Stan Tanev
Over the past few years, in everything from personal photo storage to enterprise development there has been an incredible uptake of cloud storage buckets which provide a simple, low-cost mechanism for storing unstructured data. For much longer than that, there has been a need to consume, stage and produce unstructured data in enterprise integration scenarios. File servers accessible via protocols such as FTP/SFTP, etc. are commonly used to meet the staging requirements of traditional file-based integration use cases.

Configurators - One stop solution for all your dependency configuration needs by Sindhu Suresh
For those of you already familiar with the blog for Integration dependency configuration, we have something better to offer. The previous blog talks about replacing a connection dependency in the integration, with the another connection resource of the same role using Rest apis. We know how tedious handling rest apis can get, hence we have now come up with a snazzy UI do the same operation. This feature is available at the integration level and it has also been extended to work at Package level.

Accelerate API Integration With the Power of OpenAPI by Anuj Kaushal
The OpenAPI Specification defines a standard, programming language-agnostic interface description for REST APIs. We are pleased to announce OpenAPI support in Oracle integration cloud REST adapter. What this means is that all OIC integration flows with a REST trigger will publish an openAPI to describe its metadata. This machine readable description of the API will allow interactive API explorers as well as the developers to consume OIC integration flows with ease.

Javascript in ANT by Martien van den Akker
Earlier I wrote about an ANT script to scan JCA adapters files in your projects home, subversion working copy or github local repo.

In my current project we use sensors to kick-of message-archiving processes, without cluttering the BPEL process. I'm not sure if I would do that like that if I would do on a new project, but technically the idea is interesting. Unfortunately, we did not build a registry what BPEL processes make use of it and how. So I tought of how I could easily find out a way to scan that, and found that based on the script to scan JCA files, I could easily scan all the BPEL sensor files. If you have found the project folders, like I did in the JCA scan script, you can search for the *_sensor.xml files.
