  1. WCF Publishing Wizard needs to have export/import/command line support

    When I am building WCF Applications I need to recreate the original WCF Wizard settings and rerun them several times before I achieve the result I am looking for.
    The WCF Wizard runs once, exposes some XML that details what it is doing, but once that runs, the information is lost and I have to rebuilt the configuration.
    I want to be able to import that data, use it as my starter for another process and then at the end, have a master that I can use to regenerate over and over again.

    • Update the ALL.Exceptions send port to use WCF-SQL Adapter

      For the release of BizTalk 2016, the legacy SQL adapter has been marked as deprecated. However, following installation of the ESB Toolkit from the BizTalk 2016 ISO, a BizTalk application "Microsoft.Practices.ESB" is created. This contains the send port "ALL.Exceptions" which uses the legacy port.

      Any subsequent run of the BizTalk Health Monitor will raise the warning:
      "Non WCF SQL adapter used in some Send Ports
      Prefer to use the WCF one which is more performant !"

      The ALL.Exceptions send port should be updated to use the WCF-SQL adapter. This will also require either a change to the EsbExceptions database or…

        • Include the binding files into the VS BizTalk project

          Now the binding files are out of the development workflow. We don't have the "Binding file editor", we cannot use source control to manage BF, paradoxically it is the soul of deployment but is out of the deployment [dev] pipeline.
          It doesn't make sense. It harms the dev process, the source code management, the deployment, - all aspects of the BTS projects.
          Why nobody mentioned it?????

              • Create BizTalk Group on a SQL Server running on a non-default port

                While configuring BizTalk Server, the configuration will fail with the error: Configuration Framework]Feature: [Group] Failed to configure with error message [Exception of type 'System.EnterpriseServices.TransactionProxyException' was thrown.] if SQL Server is running on a non-default port (different than 1433).

                In resume, we cannot specify "server\instance, port" on the BizTalk Server Configuration tool. To solve this problem we need to create a SQL Alias and use the alias.

                "server\instance, port" should be allowed.

                • API to manage suspended messages

                  All operations task MUST be open to automation. Please, provide [PowerShell, .NET, Python,...] API at last to manage suspended messages (filter, resubmit, delete, save, [republish?]). Something really simple and a no-brainer.

                    • Dynamic send port host should be set in the bindings

                      Currently you have to manually configure the dynamic send port host after deployment. This is a property that should be in the bindings and should be imported/exported with those bindings.

                        • Set MAX DOP for MessageBox on database level!

                          Thanks to a new feature in SQL Server 2016, we can have the BizTalk MessageBox running with MAXDOP set to 1 on the same instance with databases that have MAXDOP set to 0. Unfortunately, the BizTalk configuration still sets the MAX DOP value to 1 at instance level, instead of database level. https://sqltechblog.com/2016/10/04/understanding-the-new-maxdop-settings-in-sql-2016/

                              the BizTalk Configuration tool fails during configuration when TLS 1.0/1.1 is disabled. As far as I can tell, that's the only component that requires TLS 1.0/1.1. The BizTalk configuration tool needs to be updated to support TLS 1.2.

                                Currently the Backup process generates a large number of files daily and the users don't have a good way of safely and automatically deleting the old files. This should be available and easily turned on out of the box.
                                FIX backups so that the biggest loss of production in BizTalk stops happening.

                                • Simple submit SDK for custom webservices/rest api's to post messages to BTS

                                  It should be easy to setup a front (webservice, rest service etc) that posts messages directly into BTS and optionally waits for a response. This way we can develop for example rest api's that are using Swagger to enabled rich testing functionality and documentation.

                                  I'm thinking a SDK or NuGet-package that you can add to your project and have the messages handled in a similar way as the WCF-endpoints.

                                  • BizTalk Transform Config editor doesn't recognize new messages when selected

                                    When the BizTalk Transform shape is opened, and you select a map. The Input and Output to the map at design time can be select, but when you select those items and click the OK button the editor throws an error because the grid row hasn't been committed and it thinks that the message select is not complete. When the focus moves from the grid control, the grid control should commit that change in the grid and allow the user to click OK.

                                    • Fix the bug in the Schema Editor that prevents UI manipulation of the schema nodes

                                      When editing a schema, when you highlight a schema node and attempt to drag it, the UI shows a (X) indicating that you can't drag the node around. This is an error and in fact you can move nodes around, the Editor prevents you unless you drag across the node you want change past it self in the UI. Once you do that, the editor works as designed and allows you to graphically edit the schema. Fix the bug that makes the schema editor work correctly and allows the user to drag and drop the nodes. The work around is…

                                      • 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.

                                        • Chain ports together

                                          Debatch a message twice with BizTalk? Your choice is limited to

                                          - Fiddling with an orchestration calling a pipeline (really?)
                                          - Using a loopback adapter (where you can't actually do proper debatching twice without hacking your message, see: https://bveldhoen.wordpress.com/2010/09/05/post-receive-debatching-without-orchestrations-in-biztalk-server/)
                                          - Making a pipeline component where you would work your way to eliminate the need of native debatching, which will probably only work in your specific scenario.

                                          If only we had something like port chaining, binding ports together, where a message goes to a series of ports before ending up in the message box. You could do simple transform chaining…
