BizTalk Pipeline Components Extensions Utility Pack: Local Archive Pipeline Component

BizTalk Pipeline Components Extensions Utility Pack community project for BizTalk Server 2016, once again, got a new update and it now has a new component that you can use in your custom BizTalk Server pipelines: Local Archive Pipeline Component.

Local Archive Pipeline Component

BizTalk Server Local Archive pipeline component it’s a pipeline component that can be used for archiving incoming/outgoing message from any adapters. It will provide the following capabilities:

  • It can be used in any stage of a receive pipeline or send pipeline;
  • It can be used in multiple stages of a receive pipeline or send pipeline;
  • It provides an option for you to specify the location path for where you want to save the message: local folder, shared folder, network folder.
  • It can be used from any adapter:
    • If the adapter provides the ReceivedFileName property promoted like the File adapter or FTP adapter the component will take this value in consideration and save the message with the same name;
    • Otherwise, it will use the MessageID, saving the file with the MessageID has its name without extension.
public Microsoft.BizTalk.Message.Interop.IBaseMessage Execute(Microsoft.BizTalk.Component.Interop.IPipelineContext pc, Microsoft.BizTalk.Message.Interop.IBaseMessage inmsg)
{
	// 
	// TODO: implement component logic
	// 
	// this way, it's a passthrough pipeline component

	if (this.PerformBackup)
	{
		try
		{
			//Get Message Id
			Guid msgId = inmsg.MessageID;

			//Get Filename by FileAdapter NS
			string fileName = inmsg.Context.Read("ReceivedFileName", "http://schemas.microsoft.com/BizTalk/2003/file-properties").ToString();
			if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(fileName))
			{
				fileName = inmsg.Context.Read("ReceivedFileName", "http://schemas.microsoft.com/BizTalk/2003/ftp-properties").ToString();
				if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(fileName))
				{
					fileName = msgId.ToString();
				}
			}

			if (!new DirectoryInfo(this.Folder).Exists)
			{
				try
				{
					Directory.CreateDirectory(this.Folder);
				}
				catch
				{
					throw;
				}
			}

			SaveStreamToFile(inmsg.BodyPart.Data, fileName, true);

			inmsg.BodyPart.Data.Position = 0;
		}
		catch
		{
			throw;
		}
	}

	return inmsg;
}

  1. Thank you for this.
    I can see code in GitHub for BTS2006-2009, BTS2010 and BTS2016.

    Can I use the BTS2016 code for BTS2020 ?
