    • Prevent rebuild each time a test is run

      Each time Visual Studio is requested to execute a unit test through MS Test within a BizTalk project, then a build is first executed. This is very time consuming and a real productivity killer! There should be no need for the rebuild if nothing in the BizTalk project has changed.

      It may be the cause of this problem is that BizTalk projects are changing the .user file?

      Hopefully, this issue can be resolved with a relatively simple fix.

      • 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.

          • A Managed Open Source GIT Repository for Custom Pipelines and other Extensions.

            Devs over the years have written many handy Custom Pipelines and many other BizTalk Extensions. It would be ideal to have a managed open source GIT repository for them.

            Something similar to the WebJobs SDK Extensions Repo.

            • Allow Delete of Send Ports or Receive Ports from <All Artifacts>

              <All Artifacts> under Applications shows all receive ports and send ports created across multiple applications, which provides lots of good visibility to entire environment setup or in case we want to view all artifacts. However, sometimes there is a need to delete multiple ports at the same time across different applications, strangely it does not allow to delete ports from <All Artifacts>, nor it provides an easy way to reach to the application in which that send port or receive port is defined.
              Advantage
              - Productivity increase
              - Maintaining receive and send ports becomes lot easier as from one place…

              • ESB Toolkit silent configuration

                It is not possible to script in a silent mode the configuration of the ESB toolkit. The ESB Configuration Tool cannot be started with parameters or with a response file.
                When we need to setup a new environment automatically, it is needed to avoid manual tasks.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Biztalk Server Administration Console stops working when you upgrade to a new Windows 10 version

                        Following an upgrade to a new build of Windows 10 e.g. Anniversary Update or Creators Update. Biztalk Server 2016 Administration Console MMC snap-in stops working and you cannot run or deploy any apps.

                        The only way to get it working is to do an installation repair which is costly in time.

                        Please update Biztalk so it is resilient to future Windows 10 upgrades and does not require a repair every time

                          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.

                          • Ports (ReceiveLocations / SendPorts) sorting in Admin Console

                            BizTalk should support shorting in ReceiveLocation / SendPort by name or by URI and remember that change, so if user makes any change on port then it should not rearrange. If no then atleast after any change on ports it should not rearrange back to default shorting. Many customers have more than 100 ports and if they have to change in 10-15 ports then it's very difficult them to rearrange every-time and do the changes. It is working fine on BizTalk 2010 version.

                                • Property Promotion from Orchestration

                                  Property promotion (A promoted property as MessageContextPropertyBase) requires reference to Property Schema assembly before initializing the context property. In addition to writing the context property in expression shape, the property needs to be promoted by initializing a correlation.
                                  This works great, however, it creates a dependency on property schema assembly and any maintenance to promoted property assembly requires redeployment of applications using the property schema. This dependency is OK when having small set of applications, however, in case of large number of applications the deployment becomes an overhead.
                                  As an alternative, if XLANGMessage .NET class can provide method to promote…

                                  • SB-Messaging adapter - lookup key from Azure Key Vault

                                    So that keys can be retrieved from key vault. We don't want to have to update BizTalk configuration every time keys are updated.

                                    We are currently working on a WCF-Custom adapter configuration using a WCF Custom behaviour - but would be nice if was supported out-of-the-box with the SB-Messaging adapter.

                                    • Make ESB a first-class feature

                                      The ESB Toolkit is a great addition, but it should be a core part of the BizTalk solution, with the tooling and associated portal being incorporated into the standard BizTalk installation, config and tooling.

                                      • No downtime deployment story

                                        Better (easier) "no downtime deployment" story than the side-by-side approach (as best described in book Pro BizTalk 2009).

                                        • Like filter operator

                                          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.
