    • Repair and resubmit

      Enable the ability to repair and resubmit suspended or failed messages. This can be done using the ESB Toolkit, but it would be best if this was a feature available natively within the BizTalk admin console.

      • Custom Orchestration Shapes

        Possibility to create custom Shapes. Just like we do for the Pipeline components.

        So we can add Generic stuff (logging,....) in a shape and reuse it. Instead of writing always the same .NET code, also maintaining that shape or all the expressions with the custom code ( I don't need to say more.... )

        • Orchestration subscription filter editing at run-time

          Enhance orchestration subscription filters to use the same model as send ports, whereby the filters can be edited at run-time.

          Changing the orchestration filters at present requires a “code change” and redeployment, which increases the risk associated with making the change. This is also an inconsistent approach, when compared to the way in which filters are managed for send ports.

          • Apply multiple maps sequentially in a receive or send port

            There are several use cases where we need to apply a map then apply a second map on the target message of the first map.
            In order to do that we need to implement an orchestration or use the ESB itinerary.
            It could be good to have this feature out-of-the-box: if multiple maps are associated with a port and if the source message of a map is the destination message of a previous map, then the second map is also applied.

            • Native JSON support without the need to convert to XML

                • SQL Server 2017 support for BizTalk Server 2016

                  SQL Server 2017 supports distributed transactions for databases in availability groups. This support includes databases on the same instance of SQL Server or databases on different instances of SQL Server. Adding support for SQL Server 2017 in the current version of BizTalk would simplify setting up HA environments both on-Prem and in Azure.

                  • XML / JSON Viewer

                    When you open your message in the Admin Console. It's formatted like a string. You have also the option to show it as Binary. Is it maybe possible to add 2 new tabs? Like XML, Json.

                    So we don't need to copy the string in VS,Notepad++,... and format it as XML.

                    • Better support for large files

                      Biztalk should use filestream to handle large files > 1mb. You should be able to change the treshould. Sql server has evolved but Biztalk does not take advantage of the new features.

                        • Nuget package support and local deployment without installing assembly to GAC

                          BizTalk at run time looks for all assemblies in GAC, which makes it almost hard to create self contained (isolated) applications and due to this using shared assemblies like Nuget package across different applications becomes difficult since everything needs to be deployed to GAC.

                            We need the BizTalk Certification process to be re-established, possibly as part of a larger MS Integration certification?

                            • Out of the box configuration management

                              Each time we need to implement a flow, we need to have parameters for this flow and we have multiple options for that: SSODB as a configuration store, app.config, custom configuration store, ...
                              But unfortunately, nothing is out of the box.
                              It could be great to have a "configuration store" (database or JSON file for example), a configuration UI to manage it, import/export features for deployment and integration into TFS for configuration management.
                              What is important is to have the ability to split the configuration for each flow in order to deploy it separately.

                                • Ability to choose orchestration persistence points

                                  Currently BizTalk Orchestration has pre-defined persistence points such as at the start, send shape, start a new orchestration etc. As we all know persistent points are heavy and we always try to reduce these persistence point. It will be great, if we let developer choose these persistent points, giving them flexibility on reducing the number of persistent points.

                                  • Add the ReceiveLocationName to the System-Properties schema

                                    The global Property ReceiveLocationName doesn't exist in the http://schemas.microsoft.com/BizTalk/2003/system-properties schema. So it can't be used in filters or orchestration properties forcing users to create ReceivePorts to allow them to filter on the property. Instead, this missing property should be added to the global schemas to allow developers and administrators to use it.

                                      • Use JSON as BizTalks internal format instead of XML

                                        What would we gain by this? Less storage usage, less memory utilization , all in all better performance.
