  1. Shared Functoids and Relationships in BizTalk Mapper

    Sometimes it would be very helpful to have something like shared functoids and/or relationships in the BizTalk mapper available if you use multiple pages.

    I often have scenarios were some basic evaluations have to be coded on each page again and again which inhibits the use of pages.

    I thought of two different approaches:
    - a special page type "shared" where you can place functoids and parts of relationships, on the other pages you can import these pages and the shared stuff is visible but not editable (eg. like shared types in orchestrations)
    - relationships and functoids can be marked…

    • 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…

      • Allow xsl:import and xsl:include in external xslt

        If you try to include an xslt in a BizTalk map, you get this error "XSLT compile error. Resolving of external URIs was prohibited."
        This is by design, according to MS.
        Funny thing is that it works when running the map after deployment to BizTalk.
        Please remove this as it inhibits reuse.
        PS. To all, use XSLT designer instead in VS as that works.

          • Out-of-the-box pipeline component to promote properties

            Hi,
            It is always needed to promote properties that are not coming from the message payload and to do that we need to implement a custom pipeline component...
            It could be very useful to provide a "promote property" component out-of-the-box with features like:
            - Promotion of constant values;
            - Promotion of values coming from complex Xpath (Xpath with iterations, functions, ...)
            - Promotion of values thanks to regular expression based on message properties / message payload-xpath.

            Thanks.

            • Force retry on dehydrated message

              It would be nice to be able to force a retry on a dehydrated message so you don't have to wait for a retry to occur in order to send a message.

              • Add a new status

                I would like to have a new status for receive and send ports/locations; "Intentionally stopped/disabled". When we get scom alarm it's hard to know if the ports are stopped intentionally or if it's an error we have to act on.

                  • Enable timestamp comparison on sftp adapter

                    The ftp adapter has the feature "time stamp comparison" this should also exist for sftp.
                    Sometimes you are not allowed to delete source file, if that is the case the current sftp adapter will continue downloading the same file again and again.

                    • Starting and stopping multiple applications should work, even when they depend on each other

                      When you currently select multiple applications to start or stop, you get:

                      1) multiple dialog boxes, asking to start/stop each individual application, regardless of dependency. Better would be to have only one start/stop dialog box, covering all of the applications at once.

                      2) There is no check on dependencies between them. Selecting multiple dependent applications to stop for example, may end up stopping applications only to see them resulting in error, because the order that the Admin Console chose to stop them in does not reflect the references/dependencies between them.

                      This is frustrating to say the least, because now we…

                        Add the like operator as filter option on sendport. I don't know how many solutions i have found that has an orchestration just to filter on part of a filename.

                        • Make SSO first class citizen to store configuration.

                          Make SSO first class citizen to store configuration.

                          A lot of people are using SSO for storage of application variables.
                          The BTDF has some tooling for this.

                          Why not make it default functionality. Create some helper classes to make life easy.

                          For Example Create a class like this:

                          Class Person : BizTalk.SSO.PropertyBag
                          {
                          prop Name;
                          prop Address;
                          }

                          By inheriting from the propertybag sso class you get functionality (analog to xmldocument) like

                          Person.Load("ConfigName")
                          Person.Save("ConfigName")

                          This would make life very easy.

                                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.

                                  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.

                                  • webHttp support for HTTP error codes

                                    Provide an easy way to translate HTTP error codes received while calling a REST API as messages / exceptions that can be used inside BizTalk.
                                    For example, when calling a REST API, if the REST API returns a particular HTTP error (i.e 500, 403, ...), we need to be able to catch it in an orchestration like it is possible for a SoapFault for example. The need is also to avoid having suspended instances of send ports.

                                    • Fix Functoid replacement in Visual Studio

                                      Fix functoid replacement bug in visual studio.

                                      In the old days you could replace a functoid by dropping the new functoid on the existing functoid. This functionality got lost along the way. Would like to see it back

                                        Enable a federated management scenario where an environment composed of branch BizTalk servers can be managed from a central location. A change within the central location should federate out to the branch deployments.

                                        • MLLP Adapter One-way Send Port Correlation Token

                                          While sending the HL7 message on a one way send port (using solicit response enabled=yes), we rely on HL7 Acknowledgment returned by message receiver to report a success/failure on message delivery. The HL7 standard describes that original message control Id of HL7 message be returned in MSA.2 field of acknowledgment. So many vendors/destination systems do not follow this standard properly and do not return original message control id in ACK MSA.2 field. As a result we can’t audit the success or failure of that message delivery since there is no correlation between the message sent and ACK returned by the…
