The Upload Oracle Data Collection Results data provider is installed along with the Oracle Compliance add-on from the Extension Gallery. It uploads files generated by the Oracle data collection scripts to the Matrix42 Enterprise Service Management server.
The data provider uses the Matrix42 worker to collect files and upload them to the system. The worker can be deployed remotely and needs to have access to a local or network path where the Oracle data collection results are stored. This allows to trigger the import of files with scanning results entirely via the user interface.
