When an instance is created, it allocates a number of message packs to that instance, the minimum is 1 which allows 5K messages per hour. The customer will be billed at that message pack rate for every hour that the instance is running – whether they send messages or not.
There are two types of Integration instance Edition in the Oracle cloud, standard, and enterprise.
Standard includes Integration (SaaS Integration Adapters, Technology Adapters, and Scheduled File Transfer) and Visual Builder.
Enterprise instance includes all the standard features plus On-Premise Application Adapters and Process Automation.
Regardless of which edition you choose, Oracle handles cloud and database management, backup, restore, and other administrative tasks for you.
Integration License Type
There are two types of Integration Instance Licenses.
Subscribe to a new Oracle Integration License:
This provides you with message packs of size 5K per hour and you can select up to 12 sets of 5k message pack. In total, you can get a maximum of 60K messages
Use my Existing Oracle Fusion Middleware license with Oracle Integration (BYOL):
This provides you with message packs of size 20K per hour. This option is also known as bring your own license (BYOL).
In this, you can select up to 3 sets of 20k message pack giving a total of 60K messages providing the same messages as new Oracle Integration Licenses.
Integration Message Packs
The message pack options available for selection are based on the version of the Oracle Integration instance you are creating.
For Oracle Integration: Select the number of message packs. The total number of messages available per pack is based on the License Type option you selected.
You can select up to 3 message packs if you bring an existing Oracle Fusion Middleware license to the cloud. You can select up to 12 message packs if you create a new Oracle Integration license in the cloud.
For Oracle Integration for SaaS: Select the number of message packs to use per month. Each message pack consists of one million messages. You can select up to 43 message packs.
How does Oracle count messages
When an instance is created, by default a message packs of 1 is selected. The customer will be charged 1 msg pack/hour for the new instance – whether messages pack is being used or not.
An integration is triggered:
For all trigger messages that are less than or equal to 50 KB is counted as 1 message.
If the message is greater than 50Kb, then 2 and more messages are counted, dependent on size.
For Example, if you are sending messages of 754KB then you will be charged (754KB divided by 50 KB) for 16 messages.
An integration invokes another integration
Oracle does not counts when an integration invokes another integration or process within OIC:
An integration calls an application, DB, File system:
- The request message is not counted
- The response message is counted in the following way:
- Message size < 50kb: 0 messages
- Message size = 50 KB: 1 message
- Message size > 50 KB: 2 and more messages
