WCF-BasicHttpRelay Adapter

 

Microsoft BizTalk Server uses the WCF-BasicHttpRelay adapter to receive and send WCF service requests through the BasicHttpRelayBinding class. The WCF-BasicHttpRelay adapter uses Service Bus relay endpoints using the BasicHttpRelayBinding.

Starting with BizTalk Server 2016, this adapter can use Access Control Service (ACS) or the Shared Access Signature (SAS) to athenticate with Service Bus. We recommend using the Shared Access Signature (SAS) when authenticating with Service Bus.

When you create a Service Bus namespace, the Access Control (ACS) namespace is not automatically created. If you use ACS to authenticate, then you may need to create a new ACS namespace. See SB-Messaging adapter for more detailed information, including the steps to retrieve the ACS key values.

Before completing the following procedure, you must have already added a one-way receive port. See How to Create a Receive Port.

  1. In the BizTalk Server Administration console, expand BizTalk Server Administration, expand BizTalk Group, expand Applications, and then expand the application under you want to create a receive location.

  2. In the left pane, click the Receive Ports node and in the right pane, right-click the receive port with which you want to associate the new receive location, and then click Properties.

  3. In the left pane of the Receive Port Properties dialog box, select Receive Locations, and in the right pane click New to create a new receive location.

  4. In the Receive Location Properties dialog box, in the Transport section, select WCF-BasicHttpRelay from the Type drop-down list, and then click Configure to configure the transport properties for the receive location.

  5. In the WCF-BasicHttpRelay Transport Properties dialog box, on the General tab, configure the endpoint address where the Service Bus relay endpoint is hosted and the service identity for the WCF-BasicHttpRelay receive location.

    Use thisTo do this
    Address (URI)Required. Specify the URI where the Service Bus relay endpoint is deployed.
    Endpoint IdentityOptional. Specify the endpoint identity. These settings enable the endpoint to authenticate this receive location. In the handshake process between the endpoint and the receive location, the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) infrastructure will ensure that the identity of the expected service matches the values of this element.

    The default is an empty string.
  6. In the WCF-BasicHttpRelay Transport Properties dialog box, on the Binding tab, configure the time-out and encoding-related properties.

    Use thisTo do this
    Open timeout (hh:mmss)Specify a time span value that indicates the interval of time provided for a channel open operation to complete. This value should be greater than or equal to System.TimeSpan.Zero.

    Default value: 00:01:00

    Maximum value: 23:59:59
    Send timeout (hh:mmss)Specify a time span value that indicates the interval of time provided for a send operation to complete. This value should be greater than or equal to System.TimeSpan.Zero. If you use a request-response receive port, this value specifies a time span for the whole interaction to complete, even if the client returns a large message.

    Default value: 00:01:00

    Maximum value: 23:59:59
    Close timeout (hh:mmss)Specify a time span value that indicates the interval of time provided for a channel close operation to complete. This value should be greater than or equal to System.TimeSpan.Zero.

    Default value: 00:01:00

    Maximum value: 23:59:59
    Maximum received message size (bytes)Specify the maximum size, in bytes, for a message including headers, which can be received on the wire. The size of the messages is bounded by the amount of memory allocated for each message. You can use this property to limit exposure to denial of service (DoS) attacks.

    The WCF-BasicHttpRelay adapter leverages the BasicHttpRelayBinding class in the buffered transfer mode to communicate with an endpoint. For the buffered transport mode, the BasicHttpRelayBinding.MaxBufferSize property is always equal to the value of this property.

    Default value: 65536

  9. Click OK.

  10. Enter the appropriate values in the Receive Location Properties dialog box to complete the configuration of the receive location and click OK to save settings. For information about the Receive Locations Properties dialog box, see How to Create a Receive Location.

  1. In the BizTalk Administration console, create a new send port or double-click an existing send port to modify it. See How to Create a Send Port. Configure all of the send port options and specify WCF-BasicHttpRelay for the Type option in the Transport section of the General tab.

  2. On the General tab, in the Transport section, click the Configure button.

  3. In the WCF-BasicHttpRelay Transport Properties dialog box, on the General tab, specify the following:

    Use thisTo do this
    Address (URI)Required. Specify the URL where the relay endpoint is deployed on the Service Bus. Typically the URL is in the following format:

     https://<namespace>.servicebus.windows.net/
    Endpoint IdentityOptional. Specify the endpoint identity. These settings enable this send port to authenticate with the endpoint. In the handshake process between the end point and the send port, the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) infrastructure will ensure that the endpoint identity matches the values of this element.

    The default value is cleared.
    ActionSpecify the SOAPAction HTTP header field for outgoing messages. This property can also be set through the message context property WCF.Action in a pipeline or orchestration. You can specify this value in two different ways: the single action format and the action mapping format. If you set this property in the single action format- for example, http://contoso.com/Svc/Op1- the SOAPAction header for outgoing messages is always set to the value specified in this property.

    If you set this property in the action mapping format, the outgoing SOAPAction header is determined by the BTS.Operation context property. For example, if this property is set to the following XML format and the BTS.Operation property is set to Op1, the WCF send adapter uses http://contoso.com/Svc/Op1 for the outgoing SOAPAction header.

     <BtsActionMapping> <Operation Name="Op1" Action="http://contoso.com/Svc/Op1" /> <Operation Name="Op2" Action="http://contoso.com/Svc/Op2" /> </BtsActionMapping>

    If outgoing messages comes from an orchestration port, orchestration instances dynamically set the BTS.Operation property with the operation name of the port. If outgoing messages are routed with content-based routing, you can set the BTS.Operation property in pipeline components.

    Important:

     Service Bus mandates that a SOAP action be set when sending messages to relay endpoints.
