Build and Automate End-to-End Workflows Across Oracle and Non-Oracle Applications

The ActiveBatch Extension for Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) provides a single point of control. The extension allows for scheduling and automating Oracle EBS processes and integrating them throughout your IT environment.

Oracle EBS’ native scheduler, Concurrent Manager, has limited functionality and uses the same job scheduling method as dbms_scheduler. ActiveBatch provides advanced capabilities for business users and developers so they can create jobs, schedule jobs, implement event automation, and monitor jobs and workflows. With ActiveBatch, it’s easy to build and automate end-to-end workflows that pass data and manage dependencies between Oracle EBS and other applications, databases, and technologies.

ActiveBatch supports Oracle EBS as well as other Oracle systems and process types, including Oracle database, PeopleSoft, PL/SQL stored procedures, Java stored procedures, and more. This provides your IT organization with a single solution for automating Oracle processes end-to-end. For example, organizations can use ActiveBatch to construct a workflow that runs an Import or Export job on an Oracle database or call upon a PL/SQL stored procedure. Based upon its completion, ActiveBatch will run an Oracle EBS process.

ActiveBatch triggers Plans and/or Jobs through a non-invasive Oracle Database Event facility. This facility allows users to specify an event when an Oracle table is changed through an Insert, Update, or Delete. The operation can be further refined based on table fields as part of the event specification.

The ActiveBatch Extension for Oracle EBS is separately licensed as part of the ActiveBatch Integrated Jobs Library.

Frequently Asked Questions

In Oracle EBS, you can navigate to the “Requests” menu and select “View Requests.” There, you can filter the list of concurrent requests by criteria like request ID, program name, status, start date, end date, and date range. Each criteria may have its own drop-down menu to filter by more granular criteria.
Once you set criteria based on your requirements, click “Find.” The list will display all information, including descriptions and status of each job.
In ActiveBatch, simply navigate to the ActiveBatch console and locate the Oracle jobs. Select the job in the ActiveBatch console to view its status. Depending on your ActiveBatch configuration, you may also be able to view logs or output files for more detailed job execution information.

  • Real-time, customizable, unlimited notifications to improve job execution and reduce the risk of breached service level agreements (SLAs)
  • Low-code API accessibility to programmatically invoke ActiveBatch methods to more easily interact with non-ActiveBatch programs and processes
  • Support for all job types

Once integrated with your Oracle EBS environment, ActiveBatch interacts with Oracle EBS through APIs, command-line tools, and other integration methods and allows teams to complete important functions like retrieving metadata for a scheduled job.

Discover more about how ActiveBatch allows you to build low-code workflows in half the time.

Yes, ActiveBatch supports this feature, which allows users to restart a failed concurrent program or request from the point of failure in Oracle EBS. This feature is especially useful for jobs with complex dependencies. Instead of restarting the job from the beginning, which may use significant time and resources, teams can run jobs from the point of failure and avoid unnecessary work duplication. The restart feature is especially helpful if a job fails and DBA teams are troubleshooting the cause of failure, as restarting can help isolate the problem.
