My latest BizTalk Server whitepaper has been published: “BizTalk Server 2016: step by step Logic App adapter installation guide” and I’m thrilled!
I am currently doing many hybrid integrations, leveraging the capabilities of BizTalk Server and Logic Apps to meet the needs/requirements of my clients/projects. Some of these projects began initially to be completely on-premises, but as the projects grew and new needs emerged, the need to use some cloud services appeared like Power BI, Office365 (Teams, Outlook) and so on, became a reality. And these features are much easier to implement and have more productivity on Azure Logic Apps instead of BizTalk Server as there are already native connectors there.
And you have known that in reality there are several ways to implement this two bidirectionality communication between Logic App and BizTalk Server :
- Sending messages from BizTalk Server to Azure Logic Apps
- and receiving messages from Azure Logic Apps to BizTalk Server
like using HTTP requests or Azure Service Bus, and by doing so you can create robust and smart hybrid integrations. You may have to use one of these alternative implementations if you are using older versions of BizTalk Server.
The good news is that BizTalk Server 2016 has a better and more user-friendly way to make these hybrid connections. Instead of using HTTP requests, with BizTalk Server 2016 you can use the Logic Apps adapter to receive messages from an Azure Logic App or send messages to an Azure Logic App.
This whitepaper will give you a detailed understanding of the following:
- Requirements to install Logic App adapter
- Microsoft BizTalk Server Adapter for Logic Apps
- On-premises data gateway
- How to install and configure the Logic App Adapter
