best practices of Logging in BizTalk RRS feed

All replies

  • All the 'logging' you will ever need is already built in to the stack with Windows Event Log and BizTalk Tracking.

    The only reason to ever go beyond those is if you have an external, documented regulatory or legal requirement to store data.

  • It also depends on what you are wanting to log.

    If it is errors, the Windows Event Log is a good place.

    If you want logging there for diagnostics, then best practice is using the Event Tracing for Windows and use the BizTalk CAT Instrumentation Framework Controller when you want to see the Events you are tracing.

  • Following can be one of the alternatives to be used in c# helper classes and orchestration code:

    You can create EnableDebugmode key in SSO with value (true/false) and write code in orchestration 

    if(EnableDebugmode == 'true')




    We can set this values to true or false whenever required.

    Hope this helps. Thanks.
