    • Add additional schemas in Map Designer

      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

          • 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…

            • 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.

              • 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.

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

                  • 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.

                            • 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…

                                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.

                                  • 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.

                                      • FILE adapter support for empty files

                                        The FILE adapter should be updated to be able to pick-up empty files. This is a requirement for quite a few flows I have seen over the years and is not possible with the out of the box FILE adapter. As a consultant, customers have a hard time believing this is not possible.

                                        • View specific port/orch bindings

                                          Instead of exporting bindings, it would really speed things up if I could right-click on a port or orchestration and View Bindings instead (as text). This way I could copy and paste right into my BTDF master binding file.
