Customization is essential part of any SaaS implementation to capture unique business needs. In NetSuite SaaS application also, there could be several use-cases where user might need to create a new Custom Object or add custom fields into existing Standard Object such as Contact, Account and Organization etc. In this blog I will be showing how can we add Custom fields e.g. Degree name and Passing Year etc. into existing NetSuite Contact object and can update the same field using Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) NetSuite adapter.
Please Note: NetSuite Adapter handles the Custom fields in very different way in compare to other adapters. Due to NetSuite API limitation, OIC Adapters not able to discovers Custom fields created in NetSuite which could be concern to many Customers. However, Oracle NetSuite Integration Adapter provide a way to specify manually all those Custom fields using InternalId and ScriptId and assign associated values coming from Source System to those fields and that’s the core objective of writing this blog to show to reader how we can manually add and assign values to NetSuite Custom fields using OIC NetSuite Adapter.
The use case scenarios –
Below are the high level steps user need to perform to achieve outcome.
- NetSuite – Create Custom Entity fields in NetSuite for Contact object
- OIC – Create NetSuite Adapter connection as Target System
- OIC – Create REST Connection as Source System
- OIC- Workout Request Response Payload for REST Adapter Input
- OIC – Create Integration, do mapping and Activate Integration
- OIC – Test Integration using POSTMAN
- NetSuite – Verify Contact object details

Customisation is essential part of any SaaS implementation to capture unique business needs. In Salesforce SaaS application also, there could be several use-cases where user might need to create a new Custom Object or add custom fields into existing Standard Object such as Contact, Account and Organisation etc. In this blog I will be showing how can we add Custom fields e.g. Degree name, Passing Year etc. into existing Salesforce Contact object and can update the same field using Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) Salesforce adapter. I will write another separate blog later where I can show how a completely new Custom Object can be created in Salesforce and updated through Oracle Integration Salesforce Adapter.
Before, I go into deep drive, just want to highlight the core objective of this blog to show Salesforce configuration and OIC Salesforce adapter configuration, I am assuming reader has already basis understanding of OIC product features such as Connection, Integration, mapping and deployment.
My colleague had already covered Salesforce Inbound and Outbound integration using Oracle Integration Cloud Salesforce Adapter. So, I might not be repeating few steps which already been covered in this blog. if you doing Salesforce Integration first time, then its recommended to review these blogs as well.
So let’s do deep dive now. Below are the high levels flow and steps which needs to be performed to achieve desired result.
- Create custom fields e.g. Degree Name and Passing year into Salesforce existing Contact Object
- Create/Update Salesforce Connection in OIC
- Create REST Adapter in OIC
- Create Integration which maps Contact Object Custom Fields from REST Adapter to Salesforce
- Activate Integration
- Trigger Integration using Postman
- Verify Result In Salesforce

I have already blogged two different integration pattern between Service Cloud to Eloqua.
This first integration pattern was using Standard Object e.g. Contact object, documented in this blog
The second integration pattern was using Custom Object e.g. Degree Object, documented in this blog.
Now, in this current blog, I am going to cover another integration pattern where bulk data can be imported from Service Cloud to Eloqua using Service Cloud ROQL statement.
In both my previous blogs, data was getting exchanged real time but one transaction at a time, but in this blog data will be transmitted from Service Cloud to Eloqua in bulk for Opportunity Business Object.

In my previous blog I have focused on how Standard Business Object e.g. Contact can be replicated from Service Cloud to Eloqua.
Now, in this blog focused will be, how Custom Object can be replicated from Service Cloud to Eloqua.

Recently, I have been worked for different use-case scenarios between Service Cloud to Eloqua Integration using OIC, hence thought to publish this blog to cover all those scenarios.
This is first in series which will use standard business Contact object data replication, there will be two more blogs, one covering Custom Object replication and another one will be importing data in bulk from Service Cloud to Eloqua.
Before, I start showing the steps how Contact Business Object data can be replicate from Service Cloud to Eloqua. I need to emphasis the important of Service Cloud Adapter and Eloqua Adapter.

Recently, I been part of one POC where I have learned how we can consume Business Events from Oracle Engagement Cloud.
Oracle Engagement Cloud is a Software as a Service (SaaS) offering from Oracle which provides unified Sales and Service Capabilities, includes sales force automation to manage the full sales lifecycle including leads, accounts, contacts, opportunities, assets, activities, assessments, and forecasts. Leverage content on mobile, the web, and email applications etc.
Beneath the hood, there are several business object e.g. Account, Contact, Plan, Opportunity, service request etc. which form the data model to store data in back-end and exchange data with other systems.
In this blog, I will be simply demonstrating the prerequisite which are required to configure inside Oracle Engagement Cloud and OIC Sales Cloud Adapter configuration.

Oracle API Platform’s API Implementation has two service naming convention 1) API Request 2) Service Request.
API Request – is the endpoint to which users or applications send requests for your API.
Service Request – is the URL at which your back-end service receives requests.
In this blog we are going to discuss what are the additional configuration we need to done inside API Platform Gateway Server while invoking a HTTPS Service Request URL.
Since, its HTTPS URL obviously there is associated SSL cert with that URL which is signed by Certificate Authority.
Recently, I have been doing one POC where I was invoking a Service Request HTTPS URL but it was not working and later found out it’s because of associated SSL certificate was not configured in Weblogic JKS Keystore.
Before, I get into detailed solution, let me tell you bit more about problem. At very initial stage when I tried creating an API which is in-turn calling an HTTPS service request, it was failing while invoking that service from rest POSTMAN tool and was getting “Internal Server error” as per below snap.

Is Troubleshooting Important for you ? I hope, the answer is Yes. If that’s the case for you then first thing we need to know where to look for the detailed error message when something going wrong e.g. Gateway server not pooling API configuration from Management tier, while Invoking API end user getting “Internal Server Error”, “Resource not found” etc etc. There could be many types of error but often its hard to find out root cause of exact error.
Recently, I have created an API which was further calling and HTTPS endpoint. While, invoking that API I was getting error “Internal server error”, However, there was nowhere I could easily locate the details error about this problem. I had looked Managed server.log, ManagedServer.out, APICS EDR file and many other files but couldn’t find useful error message related to my error. Later, I found one log file “default.log” which helped me to get root cause of my error. Hence, I decided to compile a list of all logs files, their location and bit of description, so that next time when I hit the some issue, it could be much easier for me to find out root cause by looking relevant log file. This blogs definitely helps to reader as well if they got stuck with API Gateway Error.
Note: The path given in my explanation could be different than your environment but I hope you can very well workout your environment path after looking my sample PATH which I have mentioned in this blog. My base location of installation was “/u01/apics”, the rest PATH should be same in your environment.
Also, before enabling debug/trace severity make sure it’s impact on file size because some of the files start getting thousand of lines of logs once you enabled the debug/trace log severity.
So, here is my comprehensive logs files list, their location and bit of description which you won’t find in Oracle APICS documentation.

In one of my recent Event engagement, I was expected to provision 50+ users in Weblogic. Creating users in Weblogic is not cumbersome process, it’s fairly easy. However, when you need to do in bulk it can take hours.
So, I just came up with simple WLST script which take an configuration file as input which contains all the server credentials required to make connectivity and list of users, description and group name etc and create and delete users in Weblogic.
Note: I have tested this script in Weblogic 126.96.36.199 but it should work in all Weblogic version as long as the beans which I have used inside python not been change in particular Weblogic Version.
This is configuration file which keep server credentials and all users name along with description, group and password.

Who doesn’t like the security. This is one of critical element of our IT Infrastructure. Recently I was doing one POC and got requirement to setup a valid SSL certificate in Weblogic. However, since it was just an POC we were not having any valid SSL certificate issued by some Certificate Authority. Later, I came across for one website called https://letsencrypt.org/ . Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority (CA). they give people the digital certificates they need in order to enable HTTPS (SSL/TLS) for websites, and its free, yes you heard correctly It’s FREE !!!. You don’t need to pay them at all. So if you need a valid SSL certificate for your POC or even for Production environment you can get one from them. Although their certificate comes with 3 month validity, so while using for Production environment user need to keep renewing with them with simple automated process.
In this blog we will be learning how we can generate letsencrypt SSL certificate, what’s prerequisite to get the certificate and setup that certificate in Weblogic server to enable SSL communication.
So, Lets move on. We will be doing below stuff in sequence –
- Get a registered domain name (This required while generating SSL Cert)
- Install Certbot ACME Tool and Apache HTTP Server
- Generate Letsencrypt SSL Certificate
- Configure Letsencrypt SSL in Weblogic Identity Store
