Atom Feeds in Oracle HCM Cloud

Atom Feeds in Oracle HCM Cloud

HCM Atom feeds provide notifications of Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM) events and is tightly integrated with REST services. The feed contains details of the REST resource which when consumed retrieves additional information about the resource. These are the following primary Atom feeds:

  • Employee Feeds
  • New Hire
  • Termination
  • Employee Update
  • Assignment creation, update, and end date
  • Work Structures Feeds (Creation, update, and end date)
  • Organizations
  • Jobs
  • Positions
  • Grades
  • Locations

Atom Feeds

Atom Publishing Protocol (AtomPub)  software applications can subscribe to these changes in Oracle HCM REST Resources, using atom feeds as it is a quick and least resource-intensive approach.

Let’s take a look at how to consume Atom feeds in Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC). Figure given below gives a brief idea of synchronization between HCM cloud and third-party applications using OIC as middleware.

Atom endpoint should be invoked with “updated-min” parameter using stored values between runs of a scheduled orchestrations. In the orchestration, the last observed date and time of update should be stored before orchestration ends as it helps to avoid updates already processed during previous invocations.

Below are some of the use cases if you want to consider using Atom Feeds in Oracle HCM:

  • A travel and expense application that requires basic employee information whenever they undergo a change – i.e., department code, location, termination details, etc.., can subscribe to this feed.  
  • An external payroll vendor that requires any new hire or termination details as and when they occur can make use of the atom feeds. 
  • A third-party insurance provider requires employee hire, termination and grade details to provide insurance related services. They can get relevant and up to date data from atom feeds.

Skip Costly Rework with Dynamic Change Resiliency​

Change resiliency is imperative in ever-evolving IT environments. Our patented object action framework streamlines change management by assigning object definitions to your shared assets. The same object may be used in a thousand automation steps, but it can be easily updated by making one simple change to the model definition. The change automatically propagates to every single instance where that object may have been used without a single line of code or manual human involvement. For more change readiness you can also engage our Impact Analysis for SAP to predict how changes in SAP transports will affect your business processes.

SOAIS Blog – Nuts and bolts of Certify Database Maintenance​

One of the key thing, which is often missed by the organizations, who have invested in using Worksoft Certify for automating their Business Process Validation initiatives, is implementing a Database Maintenance Plan. While the business and the test automation consultants get excited about the shiny new thing that they have got and start building the regression suite; planning and executing a database maintenance plan for most of the customers gets pushed down the priority list. However, since all the test assets in Certify are stored in a Database, a robust database maintenance plan is very important to maintain smooth operation of Certify with acceptable performance criteria. The customers usually start facing issues once they have built significant number of Certify processes which they have started executing on regular basis. Such executions add a lot of data to the tables storing results data and increase the overall size of the Certify database.

Worksoft Blog – Process Intelligence: A Multi-Dimensional Approach

The ability to extract process knowledge has become easier through the years. Technology has evolved to the point where we can deploy capabilities that connect at multiple levels to extract different types of process insight. In the past, organizations were forced to spend enormous energy extracting data manually from different applications and databases. Then, they would have to use things like spreadsheets to transform the data and convert it into meaningful information.
