  • Use passthrough pipelines and subscribe on receive port name

    What is the business requirement in this case, maybe you can handle this in a better way

    EDIT: Or you can use an "any" schema

  • Hi,

    Why do you require the untyped message at the first place, can you share your business requirement with us?

  • Hi Biztalk.user,

    1) You need to use receive passthrough pipeline & send passthrough pipleline.

    2) create a message(untypedMessage) and select type system.xml.xmldocument.

    3) create a xml based on your required schema in expression shape.

    4) assign that created xml to earlier created message by untypedMessage.load(your created xml).

    5) use send shape and select untypedMessage to send.

  • Can we ask why you're trying to do this?  Knowing why you're trying something, not just what you're trying, does help us give the best advice.

    Having said that, there's nothing special about 'creating' an untyped's just uses the XmlDocument type which in BizTalk apps, is treated as 'untyped'.

  • Hi,

    1) First you have to create schema(SourceMsg) to extract message from xml.Document (untyped msg)

    3) Assign untyped message to Sourcemsg in message assignment shape ( Sourcemsg = untypedMsg)

    4)In transform shape you can transform source msg to Other msg

    5) send Other Msg to send port.
