    Automating File transfer to EPM cloud from FTP location using Integration Cloud
    A sample integration flow to demonstrate how easily you can transfer a file from any FTP/SFTP location to EPM cloud using Integration Cloud.

    This document describes step by step instructions on how to transfer a file from any FTP/SFTP location to Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) cloud using Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC). This flow is a scheduled orchestration. It make use of standard FTP and REST adapter in Oracle Integration cloud.

    The file is read from FTP location and then transferred to EPM cloud via REST adapter connection. 

    This sample integration flow works on EPM Cloud release 18.03 or later and OIC 18.1.5 or later.  In the package, there is an implementation guide which has the step-by-step instructions; there is an OIC archive file, you import the archive to your OIC environment, make necessary configurations, the integration will work.

    This sample integration is not part of the standard Oracle product, Oracle will not maintain it for the future changes or the particular requirements. If you need to update the integration, please refer to OIC documentation.

      EPM Automate can already do this no?

      Interesting article.

      Can we invoke import processes or any business rules after uploading the file?


    • Arun Raj

      We tried this and we are getting error uploading the file.

      Here is the error that we see in ICS. I am attaching the screenshot as well and complete error details. 

      An error occurred even before the REST endpoint could be invoked

      Thanks for sharing the info

      Hello guys.

       The process runs successfully, but the file is not transferred. I have an attached DOC detailing the behavior and a log that complains about an "Invalid Directory".

      If you want to upload the file for data management use

      assign_epm_file_folder ="inbox" otherwise keep it empty.

      Refer rest api documentation for folder specification
