How to capture Vendor name in HCM Extracts post 21D update

In this article, we will look into the new feature of capturing the Consumer/System and Vendor information while creating an HCM Extract.


We can now include the vendor name or the external system to which the HCM Extracts generated data is being sent to or interfaced within the Consumer field of Create Definition page. We can also add additional details in the Additional Details field to capture names of the systems or vendors when extract definitions are created, copied, or imported.

Capturing the vendor name or the external system with which the data is interfaced with enables Oracle to study the integration patterns and requirements from our customers. This, in turn, allows us to simplify the process of extract creation and definition by delivering pre-defined templates that meet specific requirements.

Delivering templates will additionally enable optimized and efficient runs of such extracts improving the overall user experience.
