Beta version of BizTalk Scheduled Task Adapter is now officially available for BizTalk Server 2016

Once again, after many requests and many postponements, due to my unavailability and free time to take these tasks, BizTalk Scheduled Task Adapter is finally official available (version 6.0) and optimized for BizTalk Server 2016!

BizTalk Scheduled Task Adapter

This time is not a simple adapter migration, it actually has new schedule capabilities:

  • You can now schedule for a message to be triggered in a time period, for example, each hour, minutes or seconds, every day or on certain days (for example all days except weekends).

And several reported issues were solved, for example:

  • In some scenarios, trigger message sent twice at the same time – Solved
  • Bug: Time change (DST) bug – Solved
  • Bug: BizTalk Scheduled Task Adapter SQL Timeout issue – Solved

You can download this new version of the adapter in BizTalk Scheduled Task Adapter CodePlex project page:

The BizTalk Scheduled Task Adapter is an in-process receive adapter that executes a prescribed task on a daily, weekly or monthly schedule. The adapter is configured entirely within BizTalk, all configurations are stored within the SSODB and can be exported and imported via binding files.
The schedule capabilities are similar to those available with the Windows Scheduled Task Service.
