Customers using Oracle Human Resources Cloud face the challenge of continuous bulk loading of large amounts of data at regular intervals. Oracle Human Resources Cloud provides the tools like HCM Data Loader which address this business use case. Now you can automate data loading into Oracle Human Resources cloud using the Oracle UCM and Oracle HCM Data Loader plugins which leverage the HCM Data Loader for the Workload automation users.

The above diagram shows the business process automated through these plugins:

This process is divided into 2 steps and hence the 2 plugins:

  1. A .zip file containing .dat files is placed on the Oracle WebCenter Content server. Here the Oracle WebCenter Content server acts as a staging infrastructure for files that are loaded and processed by the HCM Data Loader.
  2. HCM Data Loader imports the data first into its stage tables and then into application tables. Any errors that occur during either the import phase or load phase are reported in the job status and details in job log.

 

Technical description and workflow

Oracle UCM plugin

The Oracle UCM enables you to stage data files for processing to HCM Data Loader.

It provides easier integration with other business processes by using the Oracle Universal Content Management (UCM) integration.

The Oracle UCM Data Loader automates the process of bulk-loading of data. You can load the data files and monitor them from a single point of control.

The data is uploaded as zip files to Oracle UCM, which is processed by the HCM Data Loader.

This integration helps you save time, resources, and speed up data loading in a secure manner.

Prerequisite for the plugins to work:

– Oracle Human Resources Cloud service account with correct permissions to access File Import and Export task in the Oracle Human Resources Cloud web user interface.

– Credentials (username and password) for Oracle Human Resources Cloud web user interface.

Oracle HCM Data Loader plugin

The Oracle HCM Data Loader integration enables you to import and load the data from data files uploaded to Oracle UCM by the Oracle UCM plugin to Oracle Human Resources Cloud.

The plugin internally invokes the importAndLoadData function from the HCMCommonDataLoader web service.

HCM Data Loader decompresses the .zip file and imports individual data lines to its stage tables. In the stage tables, related data lines are grouped to form business objects. Any errors that occur during the import phase are reported on the failed job log.

HCM Data Loader calls the relevant logical object interface method (delivered in product services) to load valid objects to the application tables. Any errors that occur during the load phase are reported on the failed job log.

Prerequisite for the plugins to work:

– Oracle Human Resources Cloud service account with Human Capital Management Integration Specialist job role or privileges to access HCM Data Loader.

– Credentials(username and password) for Oracle Human Resources Cloud web user interface.

 

Log in to the Dynamic Workload Console and open the Workload Designer. Choose to create a new job and select “Oracle UCM” job type in the Cloud section:
