Create Task

Opkey's ConfigOps platform automates the entire DevOps lifecycle from configuration to deployment. It saves you time and effort and helps ensure your Oracle Fusion implementation and maintenance goes smoothly.

Config Ops has five sections. These include Tasks, Pipelines, Scheduled Jobs, Results, and Packages. The first section is Tasks, where you can create different tasks by choosing them from a predefined list depending on your requirements. 

For instance, when creating a Supply Chain configuration in Oracle Fusion, you can choose from tasks like new inventory, locations, shipping items, or facility management.

In this article, we will focus on the Task section.

Let’s begin with the dashboard of the Task section of Config Ops. You can create a new task with the ‘+ Task’ button present on the left. You can delete or rename the tasks you created using the options next to the Add Task button.

Find options for ‘Assignee’ which allows you to apply filters to tasks based on who they are assigned to and an Application that lets you select the Application for which you want to create tasks.

The advanced filter option allows you to apply filters for Assignee, Reporter, Priority, Application, Created On, and  Modified On.

The view column option allows you to view tasks as per creation, and modification date. 

Let us now proceed to see how to create a Task in Config Ops and understand its use case.

  1. Click on the Config Ops tab on the left panel of your Opkey dashboard. Select ‘Task’.

  1. Click on the ‘+ Task’ button to create a new task.

  1. You can create tasks using the following options:

Export Configuration - It lets you export configurations from the selected instance of Oracle Fusion, which then gets saved in the repository named ‘Package' in Opkey. You need to select the Action, Source Instance, Oracle Offering, Functional Area, Oracle Task, and Business Unit.

Import Configurations - After exporting the configurations, you can make the necessary changes and import the configurations to the selected instance of your Oracle Fusion. Select the instance, and the package, and then upload it.

Copy Configuration - You can copy the configurations to another instance by selecting the Oracle Offering, Functional Area, Oracle Task, and Business Unit.

Compare Configurations - You get a detailed view of the different instances to compare for any changes and take action. Select or upload the files for configuration and package from source, target, and User Story.

Approve - This will let you approve the configuration set up after its export. You need to select the approver or add as per your requirement. 

Merge - Use this option to merge the configurations of different instances during the development phase.

Run Test - Select the respective test cases or suites along with the User Story to run.

Send Email - Post testing, QA can send emails to notify completion status of tests. Add email IDs, subject, body, and select User Story.

Do Configuration - This lets you perform the configurations in the selected instance. Select the application instance, package, and User Story. 

Create Job From Release - Use this option to perform multiple executions in a go. Select Release and User Story to create a Job from a given release. 

Create Job from User Story -  Select and create the Job from User Story. Enter Name, Action, Select User Story, and  Agent.

Create Configuration File - Select the Application and module, and provide the Business requirement, Associated tasks, and the User Story to create configuration files. 

The next tab is Pre-Settings. This lets you add settings before executing any task. 

Click on the ‘+ Add’ button. On the below columns add details of email IDs, subject, and body.

This will notify the status of the tasks to the group members before execution.

Next to Pre-Setting is Post Setting. This lets you notify the status of the task to the group members via email.
