About the BizTalk Server Integration Feature
BizTalk Server provides a gateway for sending business documents between your company and your trading partners (also known as vendors). For example, if your company uses BizTalk Server, you can trade catalogs, orders, documents, and other electronic forms with your trading partners. BizTalk Server manages the data translation, encryption, digital signatures, and document tracking services for many different transport mechanisms.
BizTalk integration is not enabled in the default configuration of the Solution Sites. To enable BizTalk integration you must change the App Default Config settings for your site.
The App Default Config setting for the BizTalk Options property is set to disable integration with BizTalk Server for exchanging documents. The BizTalk Options property can be changed to facilitate other configurations as shown in the following table.
|Selected Property Value||Friendly Name||Description|
|0||BIZTALK_PO_XFER_DISABLED||Disables integration with BizTalk Server to exchange documents. This is the default setting for the Solution Sites.|
|1||BIZTALK_PO_XFER_ENABLED||Enables integration with BizTalk Server to exchange documents.|
Once BizTalk Server is enabled via the BizTalk Options property, the following App Default Config settings should be changed as well. Each of these properties needs to match the respective entry in BizTalk Messaging Manager:
- The BizTalk Catalog Doc Type property must be set to the document definition name that is required by BizTalk Server for catalogs.
- The BizTalk PO Doc Type property must be set to the document definition name that is required by BizTalk Server for purchase orders.
- The BizTalk Source Org Qualifier property must be set to the alias qualifier for the site.
- The BizTalk Source Org Qualifier Value property must be set to the alias value for the site.
- The BizTalk Submit type property should not be changed even if BizTalk Server is enabled. The default value is 1.

The recvpo pipeline handles the processing of purchase orders received through BizTalk Server. First, the _recvpo.asp page receives XML documents from BizTalk Server. When an XML document is received by the _recvpo.asp file, the XMLTransforms process is started and converts the XML document back to an order form. Commerce Server then runs the recvpo pipeline on the order form. After the pipeline processes the order form, the order is saved to the Commerce Server database. By using the _recvpo.asp file, you can use Commerce Server objects to redirect the XML to your order management system.
