In this article, we are going to showcase how to send Notification with attachment in Oracle Integration Cloud(OIC). This is new feature provided by Oracle and as of now it is controlled by feature flag. In order to use this feature, you have to raise a Service Request with Oracle to enable the feature flag “oic.ics.console.notification-attachment” into the OIC POD.
Once it is enabled, you can use notification activity to send notification along with attachments.
