Enable Basic Authentication with BizTalk Deployment Framework

I was having a problem with getting Basic Authentication into BizTalk’s automatic deployment. It’s not something you want to have your administrators do after each deployment, especially not if you have many web services deployed. So I needed a solution for this, but was not succeeding online for my BizTalk specific case. There’s just no way to do it out-of-the-box with the BizTalk Deployment Framework. There’s a pretty easy way...


Increasing BizTalk map performance by mapping in C#

I have been struggling with some performance issues with mappings last year. The received messages could get up to 200 MB and a lot of data had to be looked up from other records in that same request message during the mapping. The only way to improve performance was by using XSLT, on which I wrote a post last year. Eventually even that was not enough and I had to resort to using C#....


BizTalk Administration Console – Failed to enable constraints. One or more rows contain values violating non-null, unique, or foreign-key constraints.

Just a reminder in my own online error log 🙂 I got this error for the first time in my life and came across some solutions online. If you try to expand the Applications node (or refresh your configuration in general), you’ll end up getting the following error: Failed to enable constraints. One or more rows contain values violating non-null, unique, or foreign-key constraints. The solution is simple: Restart the Distributed Transaction Coordinator


Wrapping up Integrate 2016

As you’ve probably noticed (or not), I didn’t write a blogpost on Integrate 2016 day 2, nor did I do that for day 3. I did write a Day 1 recap though. The reason is that Day 1 is traditionally a whole lot of Microsoft talk. It’s all about new and updated stuff, things that really need to get out to the world. That doesn’t mean day 2 and 3 are less interesting,...


Optimizing XSLT to boost your BizTalk map performance

Who hasn’t had this discussion when working with BizTalk? Should you use the built-in BizTalk mapper or go with XSLT instead. For me, it all depends which situation I am in. If there are a lot of BizTalk developers, I would say it’s a no brainer and go with XSLT. But if I have to educate people at a client to work with BizTalk in the first place, people who will only occasionally develop or...


(Re)Finding my way in Microsoft’s Integration Offering

I have, as always, been very busy with integration. On premise that is. Microsoft’s cloud integration offering has been all over the place for the last couple of years and to be honest, I wouldn’t have recommended it to customers. Enterprise customers need some sort of security for the future and can’t rely on services that will be suddenly discontinued. Finally there is some light at the end of the tunnel. Integration is...


BizTalk and Oracle EBS User Defined Types (UDTs) – Only one .Net assembly allowed

When you are generating Oracle EBS User Defined Types (UDT) using the generation wizard in Visual Studio, you may encounter the following error: A message sent to adapter “WCF-Custom” on send port “SP.Oracle” with URI “oracledb://ORACLE” is suspended. Error details: System.InvalidOperationException: Custom type mapping for ‘dataSource=’ORACLE’ schemaName=’SCHEMA’ typeName=’SCHEMATYPE” is not specified or is invalid. Good chance that you are generating several libraries (dll) for your user assemblies (userAssembliesLoadPath), instead of just one....


Enterprise Single Sign-On Server: Unspecified error

Always fun to install BizTalk 2013 without installing Visual Studio first. There seem to be so many components in Visual Studio’s installation that make the BizTalk installation easy. But now busy with the production server I am getting the following error. Brace yourself! Enterprise Single Sign-On Server: Unspecified error After some digging in the instrallation log I noticed some weird text though (C:/Users/<USER>/AppData/Local):   OS Version: 6.1 Build: 7601 Service...


BizTalk 2013 SSO installation error: Internal Error 2337

Just a quick blog here. For myself and for other guys on the Internet run into same problem. I tried to do a cluster installation of the SSO Master Secret Server for BizTalk Server 2013 and I got the error below: Product: Microsoft Enterprise Single Sign-On — Internal Error 2337. 0, Microsoft.ExceptionMessageBoxCopy.dll The solution is easy. Make sure you install the .Net Framework (4.5) first. And then restart your SSO Master Secret Server...

BizTalk 2013 TCP IP adapter 0

BizTalk 2013 TCP/IP Adapter

For a client’s migration to BizTalk 2013, I came across a TCP/IP adapter which needed to be migrated as well. I was unable to find a 2013 version of the adapter though and decided to update it myself. I used the 2010 fork of the original adapter and updated all references. Also the depricated setup project needed to be rebuilt, so now the setup uses a InstallShield Limited Edition setup...
