Service Consuming Wizard

Updated: November 21, 2013

You can use bridges to send messages to external WCF service endpoints. If the incoming message to the bridge is of a schema different from the one expected by the external service endpoints, you must use transforms to map the incoming message schema to the message schema expected by the service. In turn, the transforms require that the schema of the message expected by the service be added to your BizTalk Service project. To enable users to generate/add such schemas to the project, BizTalk Services provides the Service Consuming Wizard.

The Service Consuming Wizard in BizTalk Services is similar to the BizTalk WCF Service Consuming Wizard available with BizTalk Server. Hence, for instructions on how to use the wizard you can refer to the instructions at

The only difference about the wizard in BizTalk Services is that it only creates an XSD schema file after a successful run. The wizard available with BizTalk Server creates other output files that are not relevant for BizTalk Services.
