With the Oracle® Financials Cloud® connector, you can use commands in a chain to interact with Oracle Financials Cloud (OFC). For example, with this connector, you can:
- Import journals, segment values, and hierarchies into OFC
- Load Oracle Human Capital Management® (HCM) files into OFC
- Process account hierarchies in OFC
To enable the connection, the connector uses the Oracle Web Services® interface, secured with basic username and password authentication. To set up the connector, you'll need:
- A designated integration user set up in OFC for the connector
- The integration user's authentication credentials
- The base URL for the OFC application to connect to, including the protocol—such as
https://— but not any path at the end. For example,
Set up the Oracle Financials Cloud connector

Note: All sensitive credentials are automatically encrypted and stored at Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)-256 encryption.
- Select the environments to use with the connection, and click Save.
- To test the connection, create and run a chain with the connector's Process Account Hierarchies command, and verify it returns a valid output.
If the connection to OFC fails:
- Verify the integration user's authentication credentials.
- Check the base URL of the OFC application to connect to. Ensure the connector's Base URL property includes the protocol—such as
https://—but not any path at the end.
