Custom Controls for Oracle Policy Modeling
Answer ID 6380   |   Last Review Date 12/11/2018

How do I create and use custom controls in a Policy Automation interview?


Oracle Policy Automation (latest release)


Custom controls allow completely customized styling to be applied to controls on Oracle Policy Automation (OPA) interview screens.

For a policy modeler to use a custom control on an interview screen, a custom control handler must be provided. Programming expertise is needed to create the custom control handler that provides dynamic HTML content for a custom control. Each custom control handler returns a HTML snippet that will be included within the OPA screen at the point where the control appears. A custom control handler is passed the current interview session data, and can choose to use some, none or all of that data in deciding how to render its response.

There is an alternate version of the Emergency Response example project that uses custom controls.
