Almost 20 days since I release the beta version of BizTalk Scheduled Task Adapter and still no issues reported. I also have been testing intensely the adapter so it is fair to say that this version it is stable, so, I officially remove the “beta label” from this version. BizTalk Scheduled Task Adapter is finally officially available (version 6.0) and optimized for BizTalk Server 2016!
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.
What is new?
New schedule capabilities:
- You can now schedule for a message to be a trigger in a time period, for example, each hour, minutes or seconds, every day or on certain days (for example all days except weekends).
What was improved or fixed?
Several reported issues were from previous BizTalk Scheduled Task Adapter versions 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
