This type of integration enables:
- Access SOAP endpoints
- Access non-SOAP endpoints (such as Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle Siebel)
- Send requests from a cloud application (for example, send a Create Service Order request from an Oracle RightNow Cloud application) to an on-premises E-Business Suite application
The agent framework consists of the following components:
SAAS agent: This agent is installed and runs in Oracle Integration Cloud Service and supports communication with on-premises applications. There is one SAAS agent per Oracle Integration Cloud Service environment.
On-premises agent: This agent is installed and runs in an on-premises environment on the same network as internal systems such as Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Database, and others. We download the on-premises agent installer from the Agents page in Oracle Integration Cloud Service to your on-premises environment for installation. There can be multiple host systems, each running one or more agents, in a cloud/on-premises topology. The on-premises agent does not permit any explicit inbound connections. All connections are established from the on-premises environment to Oracle Integration Cloud Service.
Once the gent is successfully installed and registered with ICS instance the count will get increase to 1.
