Property Value

Type: System.String
The path to the recipient to which the message is forwarded.

ForwardTo enables you to chain messaging entities and create topologies. The recipient can be a queue or topic. After you set this property on a queue, messages cannot be directly received from that queue.

Service Bus supports automatic message forwarding from a partitioned queue (source) into a partitioned queue or topic (destination) by setting the ForwardTo property on the source queue. If the message contains a partition key (SessionId, PartitionKey, or MessageId if the RequiresDuplicateDetection property is set to true), the key is used for the source queue as well as for the destination entity. If you use a transaction to send messages to the source queue the message must have the SessionId or PartitionKey properties set. If a single transaction is used to send multiple messages to the source queue, all messages must use the same partition key.

For more information, see Chaining Service Bus entities with Auto-forwarding.
