ESB Toolkit Tip #20: Use the WSS Adapter Provider from the ESB Toolkit Extensions

By default the Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit does not provide the functionality to send a message to Windows SharePoint Services. Luckily you do not have to create a custom Adapter Provider for this but is there already one available in the ESB Toolkit Extensions Library. The WSS Adapter Provider provides the functionality to promote various Windows SharePoint Services Adapter property values.


Using the WSS Adapter Provider

To use the WSS Adapter Provider in an Itinerary, you must install the ESB Toolkit Extensions.
Download the latest source code from the ESB Toolkit Extensions Library on CodePlex.
Download SourceCode
Create an Itinerary and in the Resolver of the Routing Service select “Windows SharePoint Services” for the Transport Name.

In the Endpoint Configuration property are extra properties available that are specific for the
SharePoint Adapter:

  • Define the namespace aliases used by the XPATH queries.
  • The SharePoint columns and values to be set for this message.
  • The Username and Password for the SharePoint online account.
  • Use the SharePoint Client Side Object Model (CSOM) or the Service Side Object Model (SSOM)
