BizTalk 2013 - BizTalk Deployment Framework (BTDF) 5.1 beta 2

The BizTalk deployment framework is being so greatly maintained by Thomas F. Abraham and Scott Colestock that i can proudly say there is another update.

After raising a request for an update to include additional shortcuts to be able to update SSO / Bindings information without doing a full deploy (which was possible with some custom command line tools), i am really happy that 2 days after my request, it has been implemented, and a day later a new release is out there;

Release 5.1 beta 2 (supports BizTalk 2013);

Change history (and new features).

How to migrate from an earlier version


Keep up the great job!


- download the new version


- uninstall – install


- create a new build

- install and then…watch the new features Glimlach (only what i requested is shown, there plenty more where that came from!)


So importing the bindings, updating the SSO settings is now a matter of updating the SettingsFileGenerator (overwriting the file) and click on the particular shortcut.

As you would have to do in the previous version by hand;

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Deployment Framework for BizTalk\5.0\Framework\DeployTools\SSOSettingsFileImport.exe" "<project>" /settingsFile:"C:\Projects\Exported_LocalSettings.xml" /userGroupName:"BizTalk Application Users" /adminGroupName:"BizTalk Server Administrators"
