This quarterly release sees some interesting enhancements to the Flow design process in the area of rule documents, as well as a series of updates to what you can load and save from various Fusion applications. Read on for more 23B information and check out the demonstration video about the Flow designer changes.
Multiple documents in flows
One of the major breakthroughs that has been announced is the arrival of multi-document rules in Flow projects as of 23B. This allows for a traditional, effective rule management to take place in the new rule authoring environment and was clearly a must-have on the road to parity one day with Oracle Policy Modeling. The only gripe one might have is the functionality does not however apply to Decision Services which is a little odd, in our opinion.
The connection to Fusion HR now allows for easy creation of internal service requests or HR service requests. It’s great to see that the investment in HR is continuing, since it is frankly a real sweet spot for Oracle Intelligent Advisor – lots of rules and policy and a need for speed and business-driven management.
You may remember that recently, a new object was added to store checkpoints in Fusion applications. Customers who previously had built the custom object to store their checkpoints now have a scheduled process they can call to move the data from the old to the new 23B architecture.
There is now native integration of Interviews into Redwood Knowledge Management just as there is in traditional Knowledge Management. The prerequisites to a successful embed remain the same as before (see the documentation).
Version Change in Visual Builder
The Interview component has a new version number, and an added event called “opaInterviewFailed” which is triggered, when the interview cannot be loaded into the component.
A busy set of enhancements in 23B – and 23C and 23D look like they will be just as interesting.
Oh and don’t forget you can also hear Davin F. and Fiona G. doing their webinar thing on the homepage of the online documentation.
