  1. Native JSON support without the need to convert to XML

    BizTalk should support JSON documents OOTB without the need to convert them to XML.

      • Enhance the subscription filters

        The subscription filters are key to BizTalk’s functionality, yet the filter rules and structure has not developed. We need:
        - A “Not exists” operator
        - Deeper grouping of filters, i.e. don’t limit to only one level of grouping
        - A “Contains” operator would also be welcome

        The use of “Not exists” and “Contains” would increase the value of the filters, at a minimal cost to processing time.

        The value of content based routing is limited when you can only do one level of grouping. For example, the following logical filter:
        (Source == JCD AND (TypeID == 52 OR TypeID ==…

          • JSON Mapper

            Add the ability of a JSON mapper that is just like the XML Mapping tool in BizTalk. Altova has an example of something like that and it works great.

            • 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.

              • Simplified Installation - Multi-Node deployment

                BizTalk is still too complex to deploy and takes too long. Think cloud type speed to deploy. Too many dependent components including ESB

                • 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.

                      • FTP adapter should use account name or SSO Affiliate Application Name to distinguish receive locations

                        Several of our customers have FTP (FTP/SFTP/FTPS) receive locations that all go to the same FQDN, equal paths, but different accounts. Each FTP account maps to a different folder behind the scenes, but for BizTalk, they all look the same since the resulting URI becomes the same. PayPal is one such example. The workaround must be made on DNS level, which is awkward, especially when calling third-party servers on the internet.
                        A simple solution would be to include the account name, or the SSO Affiliate Application Name in the resulting URI.

                          • 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…

                              • 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.

                                    • Exchange adapter

                                      Provide a native Exchange adapter, without requiring the need for an organization to setup Exchange to provide POP3 access. Many organisations are reluctant to setup POP3 just for integration, and often ask why this is necessary when both BizTalk and Exchange are MS product.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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
