  1. Set MAX DOP for MessageBox on database level!

    Thanks to a new feature in SQL Server 2016, we can have the BizTalk MessageBox running with MAXDOP set to 1 on the same instance with databases that have MAXDOP set to 0. Unfortunately, the BizTalk configuration still sets the MAX DOP value to 1 at instance level, instead of database level. https://sqltechblog.com/2016/10/04/understanding-the-new-maxdop-settings-in-sql-2016/

    • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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

            • Use JSON as BizTalks internal format instead of XML

              What would we gain by this? Less storage usage, less memory utilization , all in all better performance.

                  • 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.

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

                      • Support change tracking and reporting

                        Track changes made within the admin console, and enable a view into the history of those changes, e.g. with a right-click on the artefact and selecting “View history”. This would help significantly in troubleshooting issues with an installation, especially where things were working and then stopped for some reason.

                        • Code View for Maps

                          BizTalk Mapper is a great tool. However, there are scenarios where mapping would be faster via code. It would be ideal to have a code view of the mapper so we can work with graphic mapping or coding.

                                We are currently looking into an Office 365 adapter for sending e-mails. There are no plans currently for Dynamics 365. And, of course, both of these are available in Azure through Logic Apps and using the Logic App Adapter in BizTalk.

                                Add more settings to the "BizTalk Server Application Deployment" task in order to control the process more carefully. I would like to be able to decide whether or not to Restart Host Instances after deployment, Stop or Start various artifact types, Start referenced applications, Validate for existing application references...

                                Bonus challenge: Handle application references which are locking the current application from undeploying. If an application cannot be removed due to existing applications locking it, have the deployment process undeploy the locking apps (breadth-first), redeploy the current and then bring back the referencing applications in the opposite order (I've already extended…

                                  • WCF Publishing Wizard needs to have export/import/command line support

                                    When I am building WCF Applications I need to recreate the original WCF Wizard settings and rerun them several times before I achieve the result I am looking for.
                                    The WCF Wizard runs once, exposes some XML that details what it is doing, but once that runs, the information is lost and I have to rebuilt the configuration.
                                    I want to be able to import that data, use it as my starter for another process and then at the end, have a master that I can use to regenerate over and over again.

                                    • Update the ALL.Exceptions send port to use WCF-SQL Adapter

                                      For the release of BizTalk 2016, the legacy SQL adapter has been marked as deprecated. However, following installation of the ESB Toolkit from the BizTalk 2016 ISO, a BizTalk application "Microsoft.Practices.ESB" is created. This contains the send port "ALL.Exceptions" which uses the legacy port.

                                      Any subsequent run of the BizTalk Health Monitor will raise the warning:
                                      "Non WCF SQL adapter used in some Send Ports
                                      Prefer to use the WCF one which is more performant !"

                                      The ALL.Exceptions send port should be updated to use the WCF-SQL adapter. This will also require either a change to the EsbExceptions database or…

                                      • Allow variable as input to maps

                                        When you create a map it would be very handy to use a variable or a .NET class as either an input or an output

                                        • 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.
