Do we need separate BizTalk license for SharePoint adapter web service? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Do we need separate BizTalk 2010 license for SharePoint 2010 adapter web service, since it's part of BizTalk installation package, and we indeed install BizTalk on SPS box just in order to make it working?

  • Hi,

    My bad, what I meant was that you just need one biztalk license for the sharepoint adapter as it is included in the package software.

  • Hi,

    For the Sharepoint adapter web service you will surely need a biztalk server license as it has to be installed as part of the Windows Sharepoint Services Adapter. Check this for more on Sharepoint Services support in BizTalk Server. Also the Windows SharePoint Services adapter Web service is installed on the Windows SharePoint Services server. Check this for an explaination of how the adapter works.

  • Well I'm talking about separate BizTalk license:

    1. SharePoint adapter software is not part of adapter pack, but is rather "additional software":

    2. According to http://www.microsoft.com/biztalk/en/us/pricing-licensing-faq.aspx additional software do not need separate licensing:
