  1. 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.

    • 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.

            • Enhance WebHttp Adapter to add HTTP header (WCF.HttpHeaders) from Orchestration

              The WCF.HTTPHeaders for WebHttp adapter cannot be modified in Orchestration. In order to modify it you need to use:
              A dynamic port or a custom pipeline or a behavioral extension. See https://www.codit.eu/blog/2013/04/30/using-httpheaders-with-wcf-webhttp-adapter-on-biztalk-2013/

              • 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…

                  • 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…

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                          • Create a new adapter for ActiveMQ and RabbitMQ

                            Connecting to ActiveMQ and RabbitMQ for on-premises scenarios can be difficult. I have to resort to using WCF adapter iwht custom bindings. I think a new out of the box adapter that supports the STOMP protocol would be very useful.

                                • Allow easy concurrency control

                                  BizTalk should allow easy concurrency control on orchestration and send ports. Currently the only way to control it is either through sequential convoy pattern (which makes it singleton) or to use level of throttling. The throttling mechanism is not easy to configure and does not work as desired all the time in consistent manner. It will be great to provide an option to set on orchestration or send port to define the max number of instances which can be run at a time concurrently. This will be a game changing feature as many time down stream system are not capable…

                                        • Enable support to store BizTalk backups into Azure blob storage

                                          SQL Server allows to store backups into Azure blob storage for a while now. Support for backup/restore into/from Azure blob storage or even Azure file share would be very handy!
