How to Replace Schemas

[Unless specifically noted, the content in this topic applies to BizTalk Server 2013 and 2013 R2.]

There may be times when you want to replace either the source or destination schema in an existing map, such as when you receive an updated schema from a trading partner.

noteNote
The BizTalk Mapper attempts to maintain all existing links between the retained schema and the replaced schema.

To replace a source or destination schema

  1. Right-click either the source or destination schema tree view, and then click Replace Schema.

    noteNote
    Alternatively, you can also press CTRL+M, CTRL+S from the keyboard. For a complete list of Mapper keyboard shortcuts, see BizTalk Mapper Keyboard Shortcuts.

  2. In the BizTalk Type Picker dialog box, expand the Schemas node in the tree, if necessary, select the appropriate schema, and then click OK.

    Select the Schema

    If only a single root exists in the replacement schema, or a root node has been established for the replacement schema using the Root Reference property of the Schema node, the replacement schema opens in the relevant pane, and you will not need to perform step 3.

  3. If multiple root nodes exist in the destination schema, and no root node has been established for the destination schema using the Root Reference property of the Schema node, in the Root Node for <Source/Target> Schema dialog box, select the appropriate root node, and then click OK.

    The replacement schema opens in the relevant pane.

    noteNote
    While replacing schema, if relevant records/fields are not found, some links may get lost. The schema is replaced only when you click Yes on the Confirmation dialog box.
