BizTalk Server 2013 R2: Adapters without Single Sign-On Capability


Single Sign-On (SSO) is not only used in the typical scenario of interactive web sessions, it is also used to remove password management from BizTalk administrators and operators when deploying updated BizTalk applications. That's why most of the WCF adapters are listed here: With Azure, there is a Shared Access Signature or an Access Control Service STS Uri. Both of them has Name and Key, and the Key is a Base64-encoded string which is considered clear text. The Key, as other passwords in BizTalk, is not exported when exporting bindings to a file (and are entered masked).

For some adapters it does not make sense to use SSO due to the nature of the communication method, but they are listed here to make the list complete.
