Recently I was working one of my BizTalk developer machines and I started getting the below error in the event log which I hadnt noticed before.  It had been happening for around 30 minutes. SQL Server Scheduled Job 'MessageBox_DeadProcesses_Cleanup_BizTalkMsgBoxDb' (0xF6C545D46E4F2F489B99744A4B73E1DD) - Status: Failed - Invoked on: 2015-11-23 23:43:00 - Message: The job failed.  The Job was invoked by Schedule 13 (Schedule).  The last step to run was step 1 (Purge).   Checking the SQL activity view revealed the [...]

Consume Office 365 Graph API from BizTalk Server

I recently wrote a sample for a WCF behaviour extension to allow you to consume an API in BizTalk if it was secured with Azure Active Directory. In this video I am going to demonstrate how to extend that sample to use the same approach to consume the Microsoft Graph API from BizTalk Server.  This approach will open up a lot of opportunities to integrate with things like Office 365, One Drive, Yammer, Skype and other services within [...]

Consume PowerBI API from BizTalk Server

By |2015-11-16T21:58:00+00:00November 16th, 2015|API, Azure, BizTalk|

I recently wrote a sample for a WCF behaviour extension to allow you to consume an API in BizTalk if it was secured with Azure Active Directory. In this video I have used that sample to show how you can use the Power BI API from BizTalk Server in a very simple way using the Web-HTTP adapter to consume rest services.  The original post with the sample WCF behaviour is on the following link: http://microsoftintegration.guru/2015/11/16/biztalk-wcf-behaviour-extension-for-waad-authentication/   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfJ7JIN7ze0

BizTalk WCF Behaviour Extension for WAAD Authentication

Recently I created a proof of concept using a WCF behaviour extension to consume services which require authentication against Azure Active Directory.  The idea here is that if you want to consume an API and wish to use a service account credential you can configure the service account in Azure AD or alternatively on premise and use Azure AD Connect to synchronise the ID to the cloud.  Once your credential is in Azure AD you can configure a [...]
