Migrating EDI Artifacts from a Previous Version of BizTalk Server

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

The way trading partners are managed in BizTalk Server is updated in BizTalk Server 2010 and newer versions. In the previous versions of BizTalk Server, a party is created only for the trading partner and not for the partner hosting BizTalk Server. In BizTalk Server 2010 and newer, a party must be created for all the trading partners, including the partner hosting BizTalk Server. Similarly, while in previous BizTalk Server versions, while the encoding (X12 and EDIFACT) and transport (AS2) protocol properties are defined at the party level, in BizTalk Server 2010 and new versions, these properties are defined through agreements.
