Configuring Tracking Using the BizTalk Server Administration Console

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

You can configure various tracking options during run time for orchestrations, send ports, receive ports, and pipelines using the BizTalk Server Administration console. You can change the tracking options for an item at any time, without interrupting the business process.

The tracking configuration settings allow you to track the following types of data:

  • Inbound and/or outbound event data. For example, message ID, start and stop times for the artifact.

  • Inbound and/or outbound message properties. For example, general and promoted properties for each message that the artifact processes.

  • Inbound and/or outbound message bodies and parts. For example, body and parts for each message that the artifact processes.

  • Orchestrations. Execution data for orchestration shapes.

If you set tracking options on pipelines because this sets the tracking options globally for every port that uses the pipeline. This, in turn, results in far more data being tracked than you intended, which will slow system performance. Instead, set tracking options on send ports and receive ports.
