Creating Receive Function

Creating Receive Function

The BizTalk Server receive function retrieves files stored in a folder and submits them to BizTalk Server. The receive function is configured using the BizTalk Server administration console. Using the console, a folder can be designated as the location where the receive function will poll for the existence of files. If files are present, the receive function transfers the files to BizTalk Server.

To create a receive function

  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft BizTalk Server 2000, and then click BizTalk Server Administration.
  2. Expand Microsoft BizTalk Server 2000, and then expand the server group for which you want to add a receive function.
  3. Click Receive Functions.
  4. On the Action menu, point to New, and then click Message Queuing Receive Function.

    The Add a Message Queuing Receive Function dialog box appears.

  5. In the Name box, type the name of the Message Queuing receive function.
  6. In the Comment box, add a brief description (optional).
  7. In the Server on which the receive function will run list, click the name of a server in the group.
  8. In the Polling location box, type the server and Message Queuing names that this receive function uses as the receive location.

    For example:


    Select the processing server on which the queue resides. Transactional messaging is only supported by local queues.

  9. In the Preprocessor list, click the custom preprocessor.

    Leave this blank if you are not using a custom preprocessor.

  10. In the User name and Password boxes, type a valid user name and password to connect to Message Queuing.

    This is required only when the receive location is not on the server processing interchanges and documents.

  11. Click Advanced.
  12. Select an Envelope name.
  13. Select a Channel name.
  14. Click OK, and then click OK again.

Now that you have successfully configured all necessary components, you can generate an XML BizTalk Server Documentation Specification.
