Oracle HCM Cloud Data Cmdlets

An easy-to-use set of PowerShell Cmdlets offering real-time access to Oracle HCM Cloud. The Cmdlets allow users to easily read, write, update, and delete live data - just like working with SQL server.

Use standard PowerShell cmdlets to access Oracle HCM Cloud tables.

The CData Cmdlets Module for Oracle HCM Cloud is a standard PowerShell module offering straightforward integration with Oracle HCM Cloud. Below, you will find examples of using our OracleHCM Cmdlets with native PowerShell cmdlets.

Creating a Connection to Your Oracle HCM Cloud Data

Using Basic Authentication

You must set the following to authenticate to Oracle HCM Cloud:

  • Url: The Url of your account.
  • User: The user of your account.
  • Password: The password of your account.

$conn = Connect-OracleHCM  -Url "$Url" -User "$User" -Password "$Password"

Selecting Data

Follow the steps below to retrieve data from the RecruitingCESites table and pipe the result into to a CSV file:

Select-OracleHCM -Connection $conn -Table RecruitingCESites | Select -Property * -ExcludeProperty Connection,Table,Columns | Export-Csv -Path c:\myRecruitingCESitesData.csv -NoTypeInformation

You will notice that we piped the results from Select-OracleHCM into a Select-Object cmdlet and excluded some properties before piping them into an Export-Csv cmdlet. We do this because the CData Cmdlets append Connection, Table, and Columns information onto each "row" in the result set, and we do not necessarily want that information in our CSV file.

The Connection, Table, and Columns are appended to the results in order to facilitate piping results from one of the CData Cmdlets directly into another one.
