OIC BI - Call Webservice from Fusion BI Report

Usecase: Here, we have a requirement to get PAAS DB data which will be using in ERP BI REPORT generation. So in simple, we will call an OIC exposed SOAP sync web service( this service will fetch DB data) from FUSION BI report.

Implementation steps:

  1. Go to Tools >> Reports and Analytics >> browse catalog >> Administration >> Publisher >> Manage Publisher >> Create a data source for Web service connection.
  2. Add a data source  and provide following details:
    1. Data source name
    2. Server protocol : https or http
    3. Server : host name
    4. Port: 443
    5. URL suffix: ic/ws/integration/v1/flows/soap/SD_EMPLOYEESYNCWSDL/1.0/?wsdl
    6. Session timeout: 500
    7. Complex type: checked
    8. Ws-security: 2004
    9. Authentication type: XML Soap
    10. Username
    11. Password
    12. WSDL protected by HTTP basic auth : checked.
    13. Add BI Author Role and BI Consumer Role.
  3. Create data model based on web service option >> select created data source , method and parameter if any.
  4. Go to data tab >> view >> save as sample data and save the data model
  5. Create report based on data model and test.

Detailed screenshots:

Create data source for web service connection.

Create data model.

Create Report:



1. If you use basic authentication as security while creating soap connection , then we need to select " WSDL protected by HTTP BASIC auth", else the data model will.give below error:

H3(This page contains the following errors)
Div(error on line 3 at column 1: Start tag expected , '<' not found)
H3 (Below is a rendering of thr page up to the first letter)

2. We can create data source for following types:

  • JDBC 

  • JNDI 

  •  File 

  •  LDAP 

  •  OLAP 

  •  Web Services 

  •   HTTP 

  •  Conten Server

3. Disadvantages:

It only supports sync soap service call. It does not support one way or async call.

OIC - How to extract large data from Oracle Fusion using REST APIs | How to overcome REST APIs limitation which can return only 499 records in a single request

Usecase: Here, we will get Rest data in 500 records size chunks using limit and offset.


Oracle REST APIs can return only 499 (<500) records in a single request. But in Fusion, there may be more than 499+ records so we need to fetch all records


We need to make use of Oracle REST APIs parameters like offset and limit and call REST API in the loop until hasMore attribute in the response is false.

Sample Request URL to test rest:,InvoiceCurrency&onlyData=true&links=self&limit=1&offset=0

Operation: GET


    "items": [
            "InvoiceNumber": "test23",
            "InvoiceCurrency": "USD"
    "count": 1,
    "hasMore": true,
    "limit": 1,
    "offset": 0,
    "links": [
            "rel": "self",
            "href": "",
            "name": "invoices",
            "kind": "collection"

Implementaion steps:

  1. Create a new Scheduled integration and assign all the required variables offset=0, limit= 500, hasMore="true", onlyData="true", links="self", fields="InvoiceNumber,InvoiceCurrency"
  2. Take a stage and write the headers
  3. Take a while and loop till hasMore != "false"
  4. Configure rest endpoint to get the invoice data with the qurey params
    1. URI: fscmRestApi/resources/latest/invoices
    2. Query params: fields,onlyData,links,limit, offset
    3. Json response 
    4. Map the fields
  5. Take a stage and write invoices
  6. Take a assign and update: 
    1. hasMore= from the inboice response hasMore, 
    2. offset = $offset + 500
  7. Take a ftp adapter and configure to write final response.

Detailed steps with screenshots:

Integration flow:

Assign globals

Write headers


Get rest call

Write to stage.

Update variable

Write to ftp directory
