Well well - a week ago, I finally decided it was time to start running again. In my earlier days, I was quite the runner, but the last 10 years or so, I have really been lazy :-S

Anyway, I ran 4,82 kilometers last tuesday, and 4,82 kilometers last thursday. Things went faily well, so yesterday it was time to run just a little bit faster.

BUT, after 4 kilometers or so, I teared a muscle :-(

So now I am not running... I am not even walking like a man :-(

I hope to be able to run again in a couple of weeks :-S

eliasen, who isn't running anymore.



Tracking Promoted Properties and using them in HAT

by eliasen 23. august 2007 19:46


The other day, I suddenly found myself in a situation, where I needed to use the "Find message" functionality and HAT to find a message, and I needed to filter on a promoted property.

My problems started appearing, when there were no promoted properties to select in the Message properties filter view. I had chosen my schema, but still, the dropdowns for promoted properties were empty.

So I checked that tracking of both message bodies and promoted properties were enabled in the receive port. Yes, they were... so I started wondering what might be the cause of this. And then I though: Oh yeah, you need to enable tracking of these individually in HAT. But in HAT I couldn't find anywhere to enable this. That stunned me for a couple of minutes. Turns out, that was in BizTalk 2004 :-S

Whoops :-)

And the I remembered that I needed to do two things in order to get the tracking of promoted properties to work:

The first is to enable the tracking in the receive port:

And the second thing is to enable tracking of each specific promoted property - and now I remembered it isn't in HAT anymore, it is in BizTalk Server Administration for each schema. So open BizTalk Server Administration. Go to the application that has the schema, for which you need to track promoted properties. Go to the schemas collection of this application, double click on the appropriate schema, go to the tracking pane, and here you must select the properties to track.

I googled this a lot, but had great difficulty finding any information... that's the reason for this post.

I hope others will find it useful in the future.
