  • Hi Saklaan,

    Compatible, maybe but certainly not supported. Sharepoint 2016 support is coming with BizTalk server 2016.

    Just went through the hardware and software requirement document which came with BizTalk server 2016 CTP2. Below is the snippet.

    

    You can always connect to Sharepoint 2016 using Sharepoint web services. The default behavior of the SharePoint Adapter is to deal with Document Libraries (i.e. receiving/submitting XmlDocument (InfoPath Forms).

    To perform insert/update to SharePoint lists one has deal with the SharePoint Web Services. Refer http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/websvclists(v=office.15).aspx

    With BizTalk 2013 there is support for REST and the SharePoint 2013 also providing REST, so you may also choose to explore REST functionlaity for your requirement. Refer http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/dn292552(v=office.15).aspx

    Most importantly, if you go via Sharepoint Adapter, a ListItem has its own unique row id so in all likelihood, an insert with the same data will result in a new list entry. The Lists Web Service however, has an UpdateListItem method which will take an update request.

    Refer http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/websvclists.lists.updatelistitems(v=office.15).aspx Use UpdateList to insert, UpdateListItems to update and use GetListItems method to search for Items in a List.

  • Yes, SharePoint 2013, all editions including Foundation, is compatible with BizTalk Server 2013 R2.  You will need SharePoint 2013 SP1 or SharePoint Services Onine.

    From https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-in/library/jj248697.aspx (BizTalk 2013 R2 Pre-Requisites)

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-in/library/jj248709.aspx will give you the installation procedure and help get a better understanding of How BizTalk interacts with SharePoint Foundation/Server. With the CSOM Model (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-in/library/jj735586.aspx) one no longer needs BizTalk Server and SharePoint Foundation servers to co-exist on the same server.

  • Hi,

    Are you talking about the CSOM Adapter or through web services. Through sharepoint webservices definetly you can integrate biztalk 2013R2 with Sharepoint 2016 but through Adapter , i am not really sure  but it should be supported through CSOM Adapter.

  • Thanks Rachit, my question is  regarding integration with Sharepoint 2016( on premise or cloud). I understand BizTalk 2013 R 2 is compatible with Sharepoint 2013, but I want to  understand whether it is compatible with Sharepoint 2016 as well through CSOM adapter.

    Thanks,
