7 – Oracle Real-Time Integration Business Insight: Administrative Tasks


[electronic sounds] Before an Insight model can be defined, several
tasks need to be performed: Users need to be created and assigned appropriate
role privileges Connections to SOA and Service Bus Servers
need to be defined and reporting functionality needs to be configured
and enabled. Insight has a variety of user personas. Each
persona has a defined set of roles and permissions. The areas of the application a user can access
vary based on the permissions attached to the user role. In general, it’s common for
a user to have multiple role privileges. For example, user Karl can be an Admin, a Model
Creator, and an Integration Architect as well. The number of users and their role permissions
are governed by the business need. Dave, the WebLogic administrator, creates new users and groups. To associate the users with Insight roles, he logs in to the Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control as an administrator. From the Application Roles page, he selects Insight as the Application Stripe. Then, he selects the role to which he wants to add users, and finally, the users he wishes to add. After a business user creates an Insight model, the milestones and indicators are mapped to an Oracle SOA Suite or Service Bus application. When a completed model is activated, Insight starts collecting metrics from the application for the business owner. Both design-time mapping and runtime extraction of metrics is done using data connections, which allow the system
to communicate with a runtime engine. To configure a data connection, Emily, the Insight administrator, opens the Administration tab in Insight. She creates a data connection by providing a name, the type, and the location for the connection. She also provides the port number, login and
password for the connection to use. She tests the connection, and upon success,
saves the configuration. Insight includes a number of out of the box Business Intelligence (“BI”) Publisher Reports, as well as the option of adding custom reports. To configure Insight reports, Emily has previously installed BI Publisher and set runtime configuration properties. She has also added BI users with permissions to create custom reports that can published for access in Insight She has loaded the Insight out-of-the-box reports in the correct BI Publisher directory. Those reports are now immediately visible to Insight users with suitable role privileges.
