DreamFactory's Oracle REST API Features

DreamFactory's Oracle REST API connector ranks among the most popular of the twenty supported databases, and is used by some of the world's largest organizations to facilitate integrations with ERP solutions, among others.

Stored Procedure Support

Beyond CRUD capabilities, Oracle administrators will appreciate DreamFactory's support for executing stored procedures and functions. This feature allows your team to reuse existing database logic rather than implement it anew.

Role-based Access Controls

DreamFactory users can define highly specific role-based access controls (RBAC) capable of limiting access to specific tables or stored procedures, and even determining what actions a client can take (GET, POST, PUT, PATCH, DELETE). It's also possible to define row-based limits, further restricting client access.

Multiple Databases, One API Response

Another popular DreamFactory feature used in conjunction with Oracle APIs is Data Mesh. Data Mesh allows you to create virtual relationships between Oracle and other databases such as Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server, even when these databases reside in different clouds. To learn more about data mesh, DreamFactory Academy offers a detailed video titled "Merging Multiple Database API Calls with Data Mesh". We've also recently published a blog post titled Easier Data Marts with Data Mesh.

Real Time Analytics

Because performance and analytics are crucial to modern devops, your Oracle API performance and behavior can be closely monitored through DreamFactory's Elastic Stack integration. Kibana dashboards provide up-to-the-second insights into API key usage, HTTP response codes, data consumption, and much more.
