  • 1.  Capturing Oracle Banking Platform (OBP) Transactions in CEM

    Posted Sep 28, 2015 07:59 PM



    I'm tasked with trying to capture Transactions which collate to various Banking Processes - the first one we are trying to capture is generating a personal Loan, initially we want to capture at a high level - response times from page to page, later on we will want to look closer at various buttons/processes that make calls to other backends - eg credit check.


    The OBP Platform is monitored in APM using Weblogic agents.

    The OBP Platform consists of various steps :


    Understanding CASA Origination Concept

    Capture Application – Create Application

    Capture Application – Product Details

    Capture Application – Personal Details

    Capture Application – Bundles

    Capture Application – Structure Solution

    Capture Application – Review & Submit


    I have sat with a Member of the banking Team and captured a recording of them generating a Personal loan from the Origination landing page and recorded each page stopping the recording after transitioning from one page to the next so i am left with approx 10 recordings.


    The trouble i am facing is finding a unique signature key/pair for each page transition.


    Has anyone had any experience in this or similar environments and can offer some pointers ?




    FYI : I've been through Hallets : https://communities.ca.com/message/241734832#241734832 and i have planned sitting through walk-throughs with the devs on key transactions including determining how to identify users/sessions, group users, key parameter-value pairs to identify etc

    Hi Andy:

            This is more of a Best Practice rather than a Break Fix but I will chip in.

             1) Is there something else that can serve as an identifying transaction rather than one CEM selected?

             2) Is there something that you can use as a Does not Exist?

             3) Would building a HTTP Plugin help you capture additional parameters.

             4) Does doing a view source or a fiddler trace give you any additional insights

       I would be glad to look at a screen shot of your application to see what you are facing

    Further Info on this .. the OBP Platform uses Oracle ADF framework and we are capturing such variables as :


    Name:ADF Variables
    Variable Name:afrLoop
    Variable Name:afrWindowId
    Variable Name:jsessionId
    Variable Name:adf.ctrl-state
    Variable Name:javax.faces.ViewState


    If anyone out there has some experience using CEM and ADF ?
