  1. Support Visual Studio 2013 in Windows Azure BizTalk Services SDK

    As Visual Studio 2013 become RTM and Azure SDK 2.2 supports it, you should support it also in Windows Azure BizTalk Services SDK since it currently only support VS2012

    It is really necessary ASAP.

  2. The hybrid connection feature in the new Azure Relay should have an on premise client component like the old BizTalk Hybrid Connections

    The great thing about the old BizTalk Hybrid Connections was the pre-configured on premise client that I could download and setup on a server and register map many pre-existing services to this hybrid connection. The new Azure Relay looks promising, but without this feature my customers probably won't migrate to it. Having to write an application for each connection quickly becomes unmanageable for them.

  3. Add support for prepackaged integration flows (cloudstreams)

    Basically reusable integration artifacts, aimed at speeding time to deployment of the most common SaaS integration scenarios, they are like the BizTalk accelerators for SWIFT & healthcare.

    I have seen support for these in Dell Boomi & IBM Castiron for a while, reviewing the recent magic quadrant for IPAAS several competing platforms like SAP Hana Cloud Integration (HCI) & Skyvva are making significant improvements in this space.

    If Microsoft were not to deliver cloudstreams then perhaps creating a marketplace/framework for partners to develop these and make them easily consumable by integration customers from Azure maybe an option.

  4. HL7 Accelerator

    Please add HL7 accelerator as an option to BizTalk/Azure App Services.

    I work in Healthcare. If I have to create an integration engine VM and configure HA for it, I won't use BizTalk but rather something like Mirth that supports HL7 directly BUT if an integration service was available for my use then I will.

  6. It shouldn't be necessary to host BizTalk Adapter Service in cloud-to-cloud integration scenarios

    To connect MABS with a Azure SQL you need to host BAS on a additional (on-premise) server, which makes no sense for me. Please consider the possibility to host BAS e.g. on the MABS unit in such cloud-to-cloud cases.

    For more information see this thread:

  8. Extend agreement functionality with property promotion on Transport

    Since February it is also possible to do EDI integrations in Windows Azure BizTalk Services, awesome!

    I'd love to have some extended functionality on the Transport part. Notice that I'm sending to a Service Bus but unfortunately there is no support for property promotion in my Brokered message.

    Would be very cool to see functionality added in the future.

    We are working on enabling this functionality. Thanks for your feedback.

  9. Improve Test Map capacities

    The Test Map function is already quite usable, but real debugging capacities would be nice. Additionally, what I miss at the moment is the possibility to set the Test Map Output File to native/flatfile. At runtime the mapping and conversion from XML to Flatfile works fine, but I can't test my mapping at development, because the Output File is already XML.

  10. Integrating Dynamics CRM Online using Microsoft Azure BizTalk Services

    SOURCE: Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online (2015)

    TARGET : Microsoft DYnamics CRM Online (2015)

    REQUIREMENTS: When I create any records say I create a new Account in CRM source, this Account should be create in the TARGET CRM as well

    MY APPROACH: I created a Azure Service Bus and Queue. I wrote a WCF service using C# that would send the message in XML format to Azure Service Bus Queue when a new Account is created in Source CRM. I…

  12. Migrate HybridConnection to portal.azure.com

    Now, creation and consumption of hybrid connection are not consistent. All our documentation about consumption is based on portal.azure.com, creation is on an manage.windowsazure.com
    Please, move HybridConnection as the most interesting part of BizTalk Services to ARM model on a new production portal.

  13. Assembled EDI message has incorrect content-type

    The result of an EDI send pipeline has a content-type of "application/xml; charset=utf-8" while this is not the case.

  14. Hybrid Connections

    Faq states that BizTalk Adapter Services is used for EDI/EAI scenarios for BizTalk while Hybrid Connections is used by Web Apps/Cloud Services. Then why is Hybrid Connections classified under BizTalk services?

    Does this also mean that I'm paying through my nose when I don't intend to use any of BizTalk core functionality (and only Hybrid Connections) but can't purchase this separately?

  15. Taking too much time to create the BizTalk Service

    1. Please reduce the time to create the service, its taking too much time right now :(.
    2. There should be option to stop or cancel while creating the service.

  16. Add the SWIFT accelerator schema's

    similar to the prepackaged integration workflows suggestion, at minimum it would be good to have the SWIFT schema's available in the service.

  18. improve the help text

    After login in the azure dashboard we can create VM, DB, etc. Just before we click the "create button" there is a help text that is displayed.
    My suggestion is to improve this text.

    For example, calling:
    new -- app services -- biztalk service -- create
    will show the help text "create a new biztalk service".

    This text says nothing I don't already know. It is useless.
    Sure I can search online for what a biz talk service is, but it could be a URL to the proper Microsoft help page about the entity in question, in this case the…

  20. Biztalk Log4Net

    Has anyone used log4net with Biztalk? We are currently looking into using it and are trying to access pros/cons, and whether or not it would meet our needs.
    I have used Log4Net with BizTalk (https://goo.gl/LLkGF8), but i will say that out of the box i ran into issues. Every call out of BizTalk results in the current orchestration getting dehydrated (serialized) so any type you use in BizTalk would have to be serializable and the log4net logger was not.
    If you absolutely have to use log4net there is a wrapper that Scott Colestock wrote Assuming you are not…
