Oracle WebCenter Connector

WebCenter Ingestion Connector for Elasticsearch, Elastic Cloud, and Elastic Cloud Enterprise

Oracle WebCenter is a web platform for creating intranets, extranets, composite applications, and self-service portals. It provides users a more secure and efficient means to consume information and interact with applications, processes, and users.  It allows organizations to:

  • Create and manage role-based portals for desktops, tablets, and mobile devices.
  • Leverage a pre-built library of reusable components.
  • Use a comprehensive yet flexible set of development tools for building and deploying custom built components.

Many organizations face the challenge of having multiple portal platforms leveraged by their internal and external users. Integrating WebCenter content into search results makes it easier for users throughout the organization to find important information stored in WebCenter without the need to directly log in and perform a separate search.

Oracle Ingestion Connectors for Elasticsearch

The WebCenter Connector fully supports the underlying security of all content made available to Elasticsearch, Elastic Cloud, and Elastic Cloud Enterprise.  It keeps this content up-to-date via scheduled ingestion, ensuring users get the most recent updates when performing a search.  Results are surfaced through BA Insight’s SmartHub to provide users with integrated search results across multiple content sources.

Our WebCenter Connector is standard, off the shelf software that addresses the following requirements:

  • 1

    Works with unstructured and structured data.

  • 2

    Works with large documents and attachments.

  • 3

    Indexes every desired item with a very high throughput. Given the amount of data that can be stored in WebCenter, high throughput is critical to the success of the implementation.

  • 4

    Minimizes the impact on the source system, ensuring no impact to its performance.

  • 5

    Only surfaces the content that users are permitted to see.

  • 6

    WebCenter system retains the master information and the search index has only a representation (pointers). Users click on a search result and are taken to their original item or document.
