    we all come up with access permission issue while using BizTalk File adapter. The error message suggests that read and write privilege is not given for user which is trying to access the network path, where as the property window shows that it has got all the required privileges selected as shown in the screenshot below:

    The reason for the same is that File adapter requires “Full Control” permission on the network folder. This issue can be resolved immediately by selecting the “Full Control” option of the BizTalk Host users in the document property window. But in some enterprise environment you may find it hard to convince IT security team to get full control permission because of so many reasons…….

    To resolve this issue, you can follow an alternate approach as described here:

    • Go to Advance Security Settings for Documents by clicking on Advance button
    • Click on the Change Permissions button in the new window
    • Select the users (user under which File Adapter handler is running) and click on Edit button
    • Here you will see option “Delete subfolders and files”, select this option.

    Now you are good to go without “Full Control” permission :)

    Thanks,

  • The file receive adapter needs "full control" on the folder it receives messages from, so either the BizTalk host or the credentials supplied on the adapter configuration needs it.

  • Hi Sandeep,

    Use UNC (e.g. \\servername\share name) and see to it that account host instance runs under has full access and can read, write, modify and delete files on the share. See also post BizTalk File Adapter and Windows Fileshare Limitations  and Required NTFS permissions for BizTalk File Adapter connecting to a network share .

  • Hi,

    If you are using the latest FTP adapter available with BizTalk 2010 you would just require read permissions to process the file.
