This improvement enables the dynamic send ports in Microsoft BizTalk Server to support Office 365 Outlook adapter types.

More Information

Messages sent from a dynamic send port with transport type set to one of the Office 365 Outlook adapters require the UserTokenIdentifier context property. The listed steps are followed to obtain the UserTokenIdentifier:

  1. Create a static send port for each of the Office 365 Outlook transport types to be used in the dynamic send port (Mail, Calendar, Contact).

  2. Export the bindings.

  3. In the bindings file, look for the UserTokenIdentifier property for the static send port(s) created in step 2.

  4. In the BizTalk message to be sent, use the value from step 3 to set the Office<TransportName>.UserTokenIdentifier context property where <TransportName> is Mail/Calendar/Contact depending on the transport type of the message.


A BizTalk message to be sent via a dynamic send port "SendPort" can be created from an incoming message "ReceivedMessage" with the expression shapes as shown below:

For Mail transport:

XMLMessage = new System.Xml.XmlDocument();

XMLMessage(OfficeMail.UserTokenIdentifier) = <value of UserTokenIdentifier>;

SendPort(Microsoft.XLANGs.BaseTypes.TransportType) = "Office365 Outlook Email";

For Calendar transport:

XMLMessage = new System.Xml.XmlDocument();

XMLMessage(OfficeCalendar.UserTokenIdentifier) = <value of UserTokenIdentifier>;

SendPort(Microsoft.XLANGs.BaseTypes.TransportType) = "Office365 Outlook Calendar";

For Contact transport:

XMLMessage = new System.Xml.XmlDocument();

XMLMessage(OfficeContact.UserTokenIdentifier) = <value of UserTokenIdentifier>;

SendPort(Microsoft.XLANGs.BaseTypes.TransportType) = "Office365 Outlook Contact";
