  1. 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.

    • upgrade 32 bit FTP and POP3 adapters to 64 bit

      It should be time to finish enabling these Adapters to 64 bit so we can eliminate 32bit hosts and simplify deployments

      • 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.

        • huge size message processing

          Can we improve the ability of BizTalk to handle huge size messages (10MB-1GB)? Though there are some solutions available, they are at the cost of performance.

          • The BizTalk Mapper needs all the custom map attributes exposed in the editor properties

            There are 5 attributes in the BizTalk mapper that are not exposed in the map properties and need to be elevated to editable properties at design time instead of forcing us to edit the BTM file directly:

            GenerateDefaultFixedNodes
            OptimizeValueMapping
            PreserveSequenceOrder
            TreatElementsAsRecords
            indent

                • Enhance WebHttp Adapter to add HTTP header (WCF.HttpHeaders) from Orchestration

                  The WCF.HTTPHeaders for WebHttp adapter cannot be modified in Orchestration. In order to modify it you need to use:
                  A dynamic port or a custom pipeline or a behavioral extension. See https://www.codit.eu/blog/2013/04/30/using-httpheaders-with-wcf-webhttp-adapter-on-biztalk-2013/

                    It's a great effort to revamp the existing SFTP adapter to support better usability. But it still lacks features which can remove dependency from adapter like Nsoftware. Can we expect enhancements in near future?

                    • Accelarated Bug Fix for SAP-NCO Connector BT16, BT13

                      We have been using SAP RFC SDK for most workload. But then it is now out of support and SAP-NCO still has bugs. Recently found bug with BizTalk 2016 CU2 which is the latest version along with User reports with BizTalk 2013 R2 CU6. We are in process of migration hence can only request to have this fixed as soon as possible.

                      • BizTalk Tracking API's need to support property schema queries like the Admin Console

                        The BizTalk DTA Database can store message bodies and context properties.
                        Imagine a scenario where I could query that data, and using promoted or tracked properties find exactly the message that I was looking for.
                        That feature exists today, we can do that, in the Admin UI I can do this, find exactly what I want, using promoted properties.

                        This capability is in the Admin UI, but does not exist in the Admin API's.

                        When I need to find exactly the message that shows that the data was processed and delivered to the end point. The promoted property query allows…

                          • Automatically refactor namespace changes

                            When editing in BizTalk you often need to refactor namespaces due to changes in design, repurposing or other factors.
                            This then requires that the user edit:
                            Maps that use schemas that have that namespace
                            Repromote properties when the namespace was changed
                            Open and resave Orchestrations that use that names

                            Among many other things.
                            BizTalk doesn't expose the dependencies that are implied, and as such it is very difficult to track down all the places that are using that namespace leading to compile or run-time errors.

                            This change would allow the user to change a namespace in any place where it…

                                    When you are in the mapping designer if would save us time to be able to add an additional schemas to either the source or the destination.
                                    Currently the only way I know of to create a map with multi source or destination schemas is through the Orchestration Designer in the Transform shape

                                    • Retry interval should be more flexible, using seconds (ex. 3 retries. 10 seconds interval).

                                      In some scenarios, we would benefit from retries for common temporary errors, but cannot use them because we must complete the scenario in a restricted time (inside 1 minute)

                                      We should be able to configure retry interval with seconds, not only minutes.

                                      • DB2 adapter properties

                                        Though DB2 adapter is easy to configure, it needs a fair bit of guess work to relate to DB2 terminologies. It would be helpful to have a better documentation or proper naming convention on the adapter. Also, when the actual connection string is updated on the port, the URI on the port isn't updated accordingly. (BizTalk 2013)

                                        • Orchestration "Comment" Shape

                                          I would like a shape in the orchestration toolbox that is simply for capturing comments. Ideally any comments (or the first x characters would appear in the Orchestration designer view. These shapes would simply allow developers a place to put comments about code to help other understand what is happening. These shapes would also be useful for "sketching" out an orchestration or updating an existing one. Having the ability to drop in a shape and put "TODO: Add map" as a placeholder would be useful for designing and collaborative work. It seems like a simple feature, but one that I…
