Writing AS2 Context Properties for Outbound Party Resolution

 

Agreement resolution of outbound AS2 message can be performed using the AS2To context property or the AS2To property in the Http.UserHttpHeaders context property. However, BizTalk Server does not write the AS2To property to the context upon receiving an AS2 message. If you want to perform agreement resolution on the AS2To or UserHttpHeaders context property, you have to write a custom orchestration or a custom pipeline component to do so. This is required only if the send port is not linked to the agreement.

In a custom orchestration, you can append AS2-To to the beginning of the existing Http.UserHttpHeaders context property using the following code:

Message_1(Http.UserHttpHeaders) = “AS2-To: MyPartner\r\n” + Message_1(Http.UserHttpHeaders);  

In a custom pipeline component, you can append AS2-To to the beginning of the existing Http.UserHttpHeaders context property using the following code. You need to append AS2-To to Http.UserHttpHeaders context property before the message is processed by the As2Encoder component.

string strName="UserHttpHeaders";  
string strValue = "AS2-To: MyPartner\r\n" + (string)baseMessage.Context.Read(strName, "http://schemas.microsoft.com/BizTalk/2003/http-properties");  
baseMessage.Context.Write(strName, "http://schemas.microsoft.com/BizTalk/2003/http-properties", strValue);  

For more information on promoting the EDIIntAS.AS2To property or the BTS.UseHttpHeaders property to the context, see "Promoting AS2 Header Context Properties" in the Sending an AS2 Message over a FILE Send Port.

For code that you can add to a custom pipeline component to write the headers from the HTTP.UserHttpHeaders context property into the message, see Sending an AS2 Message over a FILE Send Port.
