How to Create Property Schemas
If you choose to promote fields as property fields, you will need to define a property schema first. This property schema specifies an unstructured collection of fields into which you can promote fields from within an instance message defined by a schema associated with your property schema.
|Do not copy and edit an existing property schema to create a new schema. The property schema contains schema-specific internal data.|
|You do not need to create a property schema to promote distinguished fields.|
To create a property schema
In Solution Explorer, right-click a BizTalk project, point to Add, and then click New Item.
In the Add New Item dialog box, in the Templates section, click Property Schema.
In the Name box, type a name for the schema, and then click Add.
The new property schema opens, and it already contains a Field Element node named Property1.
In the schema tree, right-click that Field Element node, click Rename, type a descriptive name for the first property in the schema, and then press ENTER.
Set the Data Type and other relevant properties, as appropriate, for the Field Element node in the Properties window.
If you want to insert Field Element nodes for additional properties, right-click the <Schema> node, click Insert Schema Node, and then click Child Field Element, and then repeat steps 4 and 5. Repeat as necessary to create the required set of Field Element nodes into which you intend to promote values from instance messages.
