Usage of ISG

In a EBS R12.1.1 environment, a user needs to select Integrated SOA Gateway responsibility and further navigate to Integration Repository.

User has two options, either to manually navigate via navigation tree or perform a search. There are three options for navigation, viz, product family, interface type or standard. Product family and interface type are most widely used options.

If users desires to perform a search, he can click on search button which takes him to search page which is pretty intuitive and fields are self explanatory.

Through either of the above ways, a user can reach a Interface definition page. The term ‘interface‘ stands for any type of integration point. It can be a plsql api, a xmlgateway map or a concurrent program.

Interface Detail Page has details for a particular interface and varies from one type to another.

Not all interfaces are service enabled. Only Business Service Objects(Java interfaces), PLSQL apis, XMLGateway Maps and Concurrent Programs are currently service enabled.

If a particular interface is service enabled then, a ‘(Re)Generate‘ button is visible on top left corner. On clicking generate button, user can generate service for that particular interface. If the service is successfully generated, page displays ‘(Re)Deploy‘ button. Service Artifacts can be viewed but cannot be used until service is deployed. On clicking deploy button, user  can deploy service on native oc4j of EBS instance. After service is deployed, page displays ‘Undeploy‘ button through which the service can be undeployed from EBS instance.
Before the service can be invoked, user needs to create grants at a user, role or global level through ‘Grants’ section at bottom of screen. Only those users can invoke service’s functions, for whom grants have been created.

After the grants are created, the service is ready for use.
