Manage your BizTalk Passwords

During the deployment of BizTalk applications, it is sometimes necessary to set passwords manually. There are other options such as those to prepare a binding file that contains the passwords, but it is not always a quick and easy job.

Then I created a console application that easily sets the password for the send ports and receive locations so that it can create automatic deployment script.

You can get this tool at https://biztalkpassword.codeplex.com/ site.

It is just an example that currently manages the adapter FILE, FTP, POP3 and WCF *. Of course you can access the source code in order to manage other kind of adapters.

This console is very simple to use, simply specify the port type (if a send port or a receive location), a user and a password.

Following an example of use:

Microsys.EAI.Framework.PasswordManager.exe -set -receive -name:MyReceiveLocation -user:John -password:@Passw0rd1

Microsys.EAI.Framework.PasswordManager.exe -set -send -name:MySendPort -user:John -password:@Passw0rd1

In addition to setting the password, it allows you to view the property of the ports that normally contain credentials (TransportTypeData).

Following are other examples of use:

Microsys.EAI.Framework.PasswordManager.exe -list -application:[application name]

Microsys.EAI.Framework.PasswordManager.exe -get -receive -name:[receive location name]

Microsys.EAI.Framework.PasswordManager.exe -get -send -name:[send port name]

Microsys.EAI.Framework.PasswordManager.exe -set -receive -name:[receive location name] -user:[username] -password:[password]

Microsys.EAI.Framework.PasswordManager.exe -set -send -name:[send port name] -user:[username] -password:[password]
