Some Tips for Working with Visual Builder UI Components in Oracle Integration Cloud by Siming

Introduction

Oracle Integration Cloud Service (OIC) has now bundled several formally independent PAAS services into a single cloud service. One of these bundled services is Visual Builder (formerly VBCS). The 18.2.5 release of Visual Builder in OIC is more user friendly than prior releases. For example, in 18.2.5, users are not forced to write Javascript code to create a custom data type, and data mapping can be done with drag and drop. This release of Visual Builder also includes enhancements for Process application integration. While creating some test cases to demonstrate Process integration in Visual Builder, I encountered a few issues in working with some UI components. I would like to use this post to share some tips and work-arounds for these issues that might be helpful to other OIC developers working with Visual Builder.

Action Chain can be defined at application, flow and page level

Action chains can be defined at all three levels – application, flow, and page.  The chains defined at parent level can be used by the chains at sibling or child levels. The following pictures show action chains created at application, flow and page level respectively.

The following picture shows a page action chain that uses a Call Action Chain action to call a chain defined at flow level (parent) and application level (root level).

Leveraging this feature, we can define chains once at a higher level and share them with all child flows and pages. In this example, we created three common action chains at the application level. They perform navigation functions to previous page, to another flow, and to another page in a flow. These functions are frequently used in all parts of a web application.
