With the Oracle® FCCS connector, you can use commands in a chain to interact with Oracle Financial Consolidation & Close® Cloud Service (FCCS). For example, with this connector, you can:
- Convert comma-separated values (CSV) files to Planning file format, and vice versa
- Copy, export, and import snapshots in Oracle FCCS
- Upload, download, and delete files in Oracle FCCS
- Import and export FCCS mappings and metadata
- Run daily management batches, reports, and rules
To secure the connection to Oracle FCCS, the connector uses basic username and password authentication. Only native Oracle accounts are supported.
To set up the connector, you'll need:
- A designated integration user set up in Oracle FCCS for the connector
- The integration user's authentication credentials
- The integration user's email address should be used as the user name
- The application to connect to in Oracle FCCS
- The service name, identity domain, and data center region of the FCCS environment to connect to, or the full URL of the Oracle Cloud® instance if it differs from the normal URL structure
Note: If the environment's URL adheres to the normal structure, it contains the service name, identity domain, and data center region, such as
