BizTalk Mapper Extensions UtilityPack: Dynamic Generators Functoids for BizTalk Server 2020

Continuing the BizTalk Mapper Extensions UtilityPack project migration this time we will be focusing on the available Dynamic Generators Functoids. that will be present for BizTalk Server 2020.

Dynamic Generators Functoids

This library includes a suite of functoids that generate dynamic data; you can use this inside BizTalk mapper. Dynamic Generators functoids are used to generate a specific type of data in runtime, for example, generate a new Globally Unique Identifier (GUID).

This project includes the following Custom Functoids:

  • Password Generator Functoid: Use this functoid to build a random password.
    • The functoid takes five mandatory input parameters:
      • A Boolean that describing if you want to use Lower Case chars
        • “a”, “b”, “c”, “d”, “e”, “f”, “g”, “h”, “i”, “j”, “k”, “l”, “m”, “n”, “o”, “p”, “q”, “r”, “s”, “t”, “u”, “v”, “w”, “x”,
          “y”, “z”
      • A Boolean that describing if you want to use Upper Case chars
        • “A”, “B”, “C”, “D”, “E”, “F”, “G”, “H”, “I”, “J”, “K”, “L”, “M”, “N”, “O”, “P”, “Q”, “R”, “S”, “T”, “U”, “V”,
          “W”, “X”, “Y”, “Z”
      • A Boolean that describing if you want to use Numbers
        • “1”, “2”, “3”, “4”, “5”, “6”, “7”, “8”, “9”, “0”
      • A Boolean that describing if you want to use Symbols
        • “!”, “@”, “#”, “$”, “%”, “&”, “*”, “?”
      • An integer that represents the length of the password
    • The output of the functoid is a string, for example, 6FcUw7RBFi
  • GUID Generator Functoid: This functoid allows you to generate a new GUID.
    • The functoid takes no parameters
    • The output of the functoid is a string, for example, 8fe5cee8-279b-4f1b-96f2-450cff2c846c
  • Tiny Id Generator Functoid: This functoid allows you to generate a new Tiny Id.
    • The functoid takes no parameters
    • The output of the functoid is a string, for example, _2ZgiIhjCECNxi9QwU96FA

  1. Hi Sandro,

    Hope you are doing good.

    Somewhere i read that BTDF is yet to be released for Visual studio 2019. Could you please provide some updates on this if you have any.

    Thanks in advance!

    Regards,
