Checklist: Deploying an Application

This topic describes the steps involved in deploying a BizTalk application and its artifacts in a production environment. It demonstrates how to deploy an application in the development environment, export it into an .msi file, and then import it into the production environment from the .msi file.

Application deployment consists of importing the application into a group and installing the application on individual servers (host instances) in the group. For more information about importing and installing applications, see How to Import an Application from an .msi File.

For more information about application deployment, see The Application Deployment Process (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=154716).

Steps Reference

Ensure that you have the appropriate permissions to perform the deployment.

Permissions for Managing an Application

Set the deployment properties in Visual Studio for each project in the BizTalk Server solution, including the application that the assembly will be deployed to.

Deploy (or redeploy) the required BizTalk Server assemblies into the BizTalk application in the development environment.

Add artifacts to the BizTalk application and configure the artifacts in the development environment.

This can include factoring artifacts into multiple BizTalk Applications.

Export the BizTalk application into an .msi file in the development environment.

Import the BizTalk application into the production environment from the .msi file. (This operation consists of importing the application into the group and if the application includes file-based artifacts, installing the application on each server in the group.)

Make any additional modifications to the BizTalk application in the production environment so it runs in that environment, such as changing port configurations. If you do so, export the application into an .msi file.

If you have made any additional modifications to the BizTalk application in the production environment, install the BizTalk application from the .msi file into any other computers in the production environment that will run it.

Also, import the application into any other BizTalk groups where you want to deploy it, and if the application includes file-based artifacts, install the application on the servers in those groups.

Start the BizTalk application in the production environment from the BizTalk Server Administration console and verify that it is functioning correctly.
