BizTalk Scheduled Task Adapter for BizTalk Server 2016 available on GitHub

After many requests and many postponements, due to my unavailability and free time to take these tasks, BizTalk Scheduled Task Adapter is finally officially available and optimized for BizTalk Server 2016 on GitHub!

BizTalk Scheduled Task Adapter

This became more critical because Codeplex closed and community members were not finding mainly the installation files so I was getting a lot of emails requesting them. Note that despite Codeplex is closed you can still download the source code from the archive.

At the moment is only available the installation files of BizTalk Scheduled Task Adapter v6.0 for BizTalk Server 2016 and the following reported issue was solved:

  • In some scenarios, in the first trigger event, multiple messages were sent at the same time – Solved

You can download this “new” version of the adapter in BizTalk Scheduled Task Adapter from GitHub:

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.

Soon I will add the source code for BizTalk Server 2016 and the same for previous versions: BizTalk Server 2013 R2, BizTalk Server 2013, BizTalk Server 2010, and so on.


Should I do a BizTalk Scheduled Task Adapter commercial version that will guarantee full support to this adapter (reported bugs and/or issues quietly fixed) and new features?

  1. I agree with @pietervandenheede:disqus . Sandro, your work with everything around BizTalk is very appreciated. Thank you very much.

  2. Hi Sandro
    Is there tracing available for the adapter, I am on BizTalk 2013 R2, but getting the error message –
    The adapter “ScheduledTaskAdapter” raised an error message. Details ”
    blahblah: has been disabled”.

  3. When my host instance is restarted the schedule disregards my start time in the receive location and uses the start time of the host instance, is this by design?

  4. I just stumbled on this. Source code would be awesome, I don’t want to install something that we could not support. A commercialized version of this makes sense, but I think that should be a Microsoft thing – its a basic functionality that should be part of the product.

  5. The source code would be excellent. We have three environments. The adapter does not trigger in one of the three environments despite reinstallation and toying with the GAC. No difference is spotted when we compare this environment with the two working one.

    Revision number of installed MSI: {821998CF-DB4A-49E0-BB72-D97790C36BE5}

  6. Addition to the previous post:
    It *does* trigger but not correctly.

    I have 1 schedule setup with XmlStringStreamProvider. I should trigger every ten seconds. It does however only trigger 2-4 times after a restart of my host instances with a 32-bit host (which works in my other environments). When I switched to 64-bit it seems to trigger, at least its been running now for 10 minutes.
