connecting to "Oracle Content and Experience" (OCE)

My company is moving us from Oracle's Beehive Workspaces for sharing content to Oracle Content and Experience (OCE).


Beehive allows me to map a drive letter so that I can point workflows to that drive to pull data (mostly Excel files). OCE does not permit drive mapping, but I noticed that it has APIs. Can I use an API to upload Alteryx output as well as to bring in source files, forming some kind of workaround in the absence of a mapped drive?

Hi @patternfinder 


Yes, Alteryx can establish connections to API's (Download tool), but it's a process you have to create. From looking at the OCE api documentation, it's REST based API and it doesn't seem like there's a whole lot of hoops to jump through for authentication, but it is a two step process to obtain an access token which adds a bit more work to create the overall process.


Hope this helps!
