I test the integration again - this time using my name -
and see what has happened in HCM - Import and Load completed successfully.
I search for the new employee - Niall Commiskey
Now I could also use the HCM REST APIs to get this information - These are described in detail here
Now I had a problem testing from Postman with the following Jobs API call -
According to the docs, the UTL format is - https://yourHCM:443/hcmRestApi/resources/versionNr/jobs Apparently the version nr I tried was no longer supported. Then a tip from Angelo S. use latest instead. https://yourHCM:443/hcmRestApi/resources/latest/jobs
Just a quick introduction to some of our Social adapters -
Facebook - social media for over 50s
You will need a Facebook account to do this lab.
Essentially, you will create a new page under your Facebook account.
Then you will leverage the OIC Facebook adapter
to retrieve Page details and then retrieve Page posts.
So let's begin -
You will need an account at developers.facebook.com
Simply go in and create one.
Essentially what you do is create an App.
The work that we do via the FB adapter will be in the context of this app.
Note the App ID and App Secret -
they will be needed for creating the OIC connection to Facebook.
you also need to set the callback url for OIC -
Products -- Facebook Login -- Settings
The url has the format -
You now create a page within the context of your facebook app -
Settings -- Advanced
Ensure you specify the App Page category, when creating the page.
As you can see, my app and page are called OICApp.
OIC setup and development
First upload the Facebook certificate.
You get this by logging in to facebook.com and downloading the cert.
This you then import into OIC -
Then click Upload and do the necessary
Create the Facebook Connection
Configure as follows -
Client ID is set to your Facebook App ID.
Client Secret is set to App Secret.
Note: these are available in the Settings -- Basic screen of your facebook developer account
Now a word about scopes -
The following scopes are discussed in the adapter documentation -
user_posts - Provides access to the posts on a person's Timeline. Includes their own posts, posts they are tagged in, and posts other people make on their Timeline. This permission is restricted to a limited set of partners and usage requires prior approval by Facebook.
user_likes - Grants an app permission to access the list of all Facebook Pages that a person has liked.
publish_actions - this has been deprecated - thanks to Cambridge Analytica
