How to add a BizTalk adapter

Current version: 8.2

To add Commerce Server adapters to your BizTalk Server configuration after you have installed the adapters on the BizTalk Server computer, use the following steps:

  1. In the BizTalk Server Administration Console, expand BizTalk Server Administration, expand the appropriate BizTalk Group, and then expand Platform Settings. These steps can also be performed in Visual Studio.


    You may optionally expand Adapters at this point. If one or more of the Commerce Server adapters have already been added to BizTalk Server, you will see them as child nodes of the Adapters node.

  2. Right-click Adapters, click New, and then click Adapter. The Adapter Properties dialog opens.

  3. In the right pane of the Adapter Properties dialog, in the Name field, type a descriptive name for this adapter.

  4. In the Adapter field, based on the type of adapter you want to add, select one of the following Commerce Server adapters from the drop-down list:

    • Commerce Server Catalog

    • Commerce Server Inventory

    • Commerce Server Orders

    • Commerce Server Profiles

  5. In the Description field, type a description for the adapter.

  6. Click OK to complete the process of adding a particular Commerce Server adapter.

  7. Repeat steps 2 through 6 as needed to add other Commerce Server adapters.


    You only need to create new adapters within the BizTalk Server Administration Console for the Commerce Server adapters that you intend to use.
