Resume BizTalk Service


Updated: January 4, 2016

This topic provides information on how to resume a suspended BizTalk Services. When a BizTalk Services deployment is suspended, runtime messages are not processed. However, management operations can still be performed. When the service is resumed, it will start processing runtime messages. Also, because this is an asynchronous call so you must use the Poll on an Async Operation on BizTalk Service API to get the status of the operation.


The resume operation is not available for the BizTalk Services Free edition. Also, resuming an already running BizTalk Services will have no effect.  That is, the operation will not return an error, and the service will continue to be in a running state.

This section provides information about the request operation to resume a suspended BizTalk Services.
