I blogged before showing how easy it is to extend Oracle Sales Cloud using Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service.
We do get a lot of customers of Oracle HCM that approach us asking if they can use the same tools to extend Oracle HCM apps. While Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service (ABCS) has the list of Oracle Sales Cloud services pre-populated in the service catalog , you can pretty easily connect ABCS to Oracle HCM services, too, and get data and build an application around this data.
In the video demo below, I'm building an application that records the details of the cars employees are allowed to bring onto campus. I leverage a REST service exposed by Oracle HCM to get the list of employees. ABCS also automates querying using the same service so you can search for a specific employee.
ABCS lets me create an app with the same look and feel as Oracle SaaS displaying the specific fields that interest me in the specific layout I want. Furthermore, I can add custom data object that tracks the details of the cars and associate it with the HCM data.
Note that in the security section, I'm using basic security with a fixed user for the sake of simplicity in the demo. Note however that in the selection list I can also use the currently logged in Oracle Cloud user — to synch the user of my ABCS and their HCM authorization.
