Back to OPA Basics : Oracle Policy Modeling Features

Welcome to another in our periodic back to OPA basics series. At the moment I am watching a lot of new starters join a set of experienced developers. And funnily enough, both groups sometimes are stuck in their routine. For the new people, they fall back on what they know from other rules engines. For the more experienced people, that are familiar with Oracle Policy Modeling, they repeat what they learned long ago and do not necessarily see anything that has been added to the application in the intervening time since they first started using it.

So here are my top five cool time savers and useful things you can find in Oracle Policy Modeling today.

  • The Rule Assistant

I still find it strange that many people don’t use the Assistant in Word. If there was ever a tool to avoid having to remember the arcane spelling and phraseology of an Oracle Policy Automation attribute, this is it!

  • The Convert to Test Case Export

Watching people filling in every cell in their Test Case spreadsheet, when they probably have already saved many of the initial scenarios as debug sessions, I think they should remember the fact that they can move a unit test into a Test Case, and vice-versa.

  • The Find Unused Attribute Filter

I tend to use this one when the Rule Assistant has not been used very much, so we are looking for duplicate / mispelled attributes in our Project (see Rule Assistant, above).

  • The Inclusion Report

OK, so I’m probably cheating as far as this one is concerned, but it is a real time saver. In 19A, the introduction of the Inclusion Report has saved me time already. Great for beginning an impact assessment when some sort of surgery is required on Project structure. Find out more here.

  • The Export Entity Data Model Option

This is a tiny little option hidden away in the toolbar but I’m often asked by non-OPA people for the data model and I find this export really simple and quick to use.

Well, that’s our top five for now. What other tricks do you use to get the most out of Oracle Policy Modeling?

New Quizzes – New Prizes!

Our Quiz-making team has been hard at work setting up more quizzes to keep you entertained. We now have a grand total of 10 quizzes for you to practice your skills on (go to the Quizzes option on the main menu of this site).

It contains all 100 questions from the individual quizzes, rolled into one quiz with 100 questions and only 90 minutes to finish it.

It will be reset each month (you can only take the quiz once per month) and new questions added / old questions removed as months go by. For our first month we are  offering a $50 US Amazon voucher to the winner, to be decided on 28 February – since January is almost finished. Find out more here. The runner-up will receive the OPA Hub Official T-Shirt, and the third place an OPA Hub Official Mug!

Get Prepared

Here are the links to the individual quizzes. Our research shows that these help new-starters get an idea of their knowledge gaps, and help build confidence in the product. It doesn’t matter if you are just having fun or perhaps you are preparing for an interview or even the Certification exam, they can be helpful and certainly will test your reflexes. For these new quizzes we have added some “non Multiple Choice” questions – drag and drop, sort and order that kind of thing – to give your mind something a little different to focus on.
