Creates or updates DataSources, EIS entriesJMS objects, and Work Managers as defined by input properties files. The properties files will be processed for property replacement first before execution. See Property Replacement Support for more information about property replacement.

If using multiple files, make sure that the lists contain unique values across files.

Adapter Deployment

This operation will perform the EIS changes using createOrUpdateEISEntries, which will Redeploy Adapter.

To only Save Adapter Plan, use the generateEISDeploymentPlans operation instead of this operation.

To Update Adapter instead, use the updateEISDeploymentPlans operation instead of this operation.

So, if you want save or update the Adapter, then create a workflow containing the desired EIS operation. If you want to process JMS, DataSource, and Work Manager entries in same workflow add those necessary operations in the same workflow.

If you want to detect changes in WebLogic resource (properties) files and only deploy changed files, you can implement custom workflow as defined in Custom Workflow to detect changes in Properties Files.

Environment/Instance Properties

Property Name

Property Code



Oracle WebLogic Home (WL_HOME)



WebLogic Home Directory. (e.g. /u01/oracle/products/fmw/wlserver)

WebLogic Domain Name



WebLogic Domain Name.

WebLogic Admin Listen Address



The listener address of the WLS admin server. (e.g. localhost)

WebLogic Admin Listen Port



The port of the WLS admin server. (e.g. 7001)

WebLogic Admin SSL Connection



Indicates whether the admin server is using SSL.

WebLogic Admin User



The user name for the WLS admin server.

WebLogic Admin Password



The password for Weblogic Admin User.

WebLogic Admin Domain Directory



Weblogic Domain Directory for AdminServer. If not provided, Weblogic Domain Directory will be used.

WebLogic Domain Directory



Weblogic Domain Directory.(e.g. /u01/oracle/config/domains/soa_domain)

WebLogic Adapter Plan



Path to the XML files used by Resource Adapters. (optional)

If this parameter is not used, the adapters' last-used setting will be used.

Properties File Path



Comma-separated list of paths to the properties file(s).
If relative paths are given, they are assumed relative to the FD_ARTIFACTS_DIR directory.
If this property is not specified, all properties files in the FD_ARTIFACTS_DIR directory will be processed.


Output Code





A boolean value that indicates whether the server needs to be restarted to finish applying the configuration changes. You could use this in a workflow condition.


This operation consumes properties file artifacts.

Endpoint Selection

This operation will select all available endpoints associated to the environment instance which have a resource type of WLS Admin Server. Since the admin server only runs on one server, it is expected that for a given domain, there will only be one endpoint with a resource type set to WLS Admin Server.

Endpoint Execution

This operation will execute on the Admin Server endpoint selected using the WLS Admin Server resource type.

Special Considerations

If Properties File Path is not specified, the FD_ARTIFACTS_DIR folder will be used. If a relative path is specified, the path will be relative to the FD_ARTIFACTS_DIR directory.

Each DataSource, EIS Adapter plan and JMS Module file is backed up to FD_TEMP_DIR/configbackup before it is modified. As with all files in the endpoint working directory, these files will be saved for 3 days before being deleted.

Example Folder Structure

Properties files can reside in the FD_ARTIFACTS_DIR folder, a sub-folder, or another folder. Properties files with the same names in folders named after environments will override settings in the files in the root folder when the operation is run on servers in that environment.

Environment folders must match the environment code within the FlexDeploy topology.

Properties File Format

Multiple Property lists can be defined in each properties file. They can even hold JMS, DataSources and EIS entries in one file, but it is a best practice to use several files and name them according to their contents. If using multiple files, make sure that the lists contain unique values across files. Best practice would be to use the WebLogic DataSource Name as the list identifier for DataSources. Each properties file must start with one or more lists of elements present in the file. Any number of element types is acceptable in each file, and any number of each type of element is acceptable as well. The properties files will be processed for property replacement using ${{VARIABLE_NAME}} format. See Property Replacement Support for more information about property replacement.

Example Property Files

See the Example properties files in the createOrUpdateDataSourcescreateOrUpdateJMSEntries, createOrUpdateEISEntries, createOrUpdateWorkManagers operations. Any combination of their files is acceptable.
