BIACM - Add A New Data Source ( Not FILES ) (Doc ID 1948843.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 27, 2016

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Applications Consumer - Version 11.1.1.8.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Currently we have 1 datasource for the Product line Peoplesoft.

We need to add 2 extra data sources, but these are not Peoplesoft.

1) Tables in APEX Oracle database
2) Fundraising tables in a SQL Server database

The only option in Configuration Manager is to use Universal Adaptor. This is for flat files only.

We can add separate Custom Adaptors directly in ODI and hard code a datasoource number, but Configuration Manager will not know about them.
How can we add our own Custom Product Line ? It should be straightforward to add Datasources not linked to your delivered Product lines.
