To RECEIVE an EDI file, you need a receive pipeline with an EDI disassembler.

The EdiReceive pipeline in the EDI BizTalk application is what you are looking for most likely. By default this pipeline does the necessary tracking, so you should be able to see in the "Tracked Message Events".

EDI handling in BizTalk is similar to the flat file handling - the core functionality of it help you parse EDI messages and transform these to XML (as you know is what BizTalk works with internally). It also helps you go from XML and generate an EDI message that one can then send. BizTalk EDI package also has a lots of EDI schemas so one doesn't have to build these manually but can reuse the one that matches the version etc currently required.

Theres also some functionality in the to manage parties and configuration for these (received id, difference in EDI formating etc, etc). This management simplifies adding and changing specific party settings without having to change/compile/deploy the core process.

  • Implementing EDI isn't hard. It's good to have a fundamental understanding of the syntax and understand the EDI messages in detail - this is probalby the the hardest ;)
  • When working with EDI it good to start with standard documents/specification for the processes being implemented. There's multiple placese (here for example) that will publish these kind of standards. It's usally then a good idea to change this document by removing or adding to it to better fit once exact requirements. This is then the specification you and you parties should commit to when sending and receiving messages from each other.

I am on the run so i'll take a quick stab at these. Let me preface my answers by saying BizTalk is a very powerful engine, with endless possibilities and many ways to accomplish tasks.

Thanks Victor. For answer 1, do we perform the custom pipeline before the final xml is generated?

not really. BizTalk works natively with XML so the first step is always converting whatever input file into a consumable xml file. From there on then you add maps/processing instructions. You could break down your process into multiple steps and one of them could have your custom pipeline.

Use the BizTalk Server Administration Console and look at Tracked message events, that should show you if BizTalk received it and where it went.

Thanks for your suggestion regarding how to troubleshoot an issue of BizTalk Server from generic point of view. It did help. I have resolved this problem by reading error logs.

Here is the error:

It works now after adding a service account to "SSO Administrators" and restart all BizTalk related services.

Your filter should NOT have the "EDI.ToBeBatched" property set to true. Biztalk will set this to true for you in the EDI Receive pipeline when your specified filter conditions (at the party level) are met.

To be more specific, the "BatchMarker" component of the EDIReceive pipeline will set subscription conditions necessary for the special batching orchestration instance (running in the Biztalk EDI Application) to subscribe to, batch and deliver your EDI Messages.

One way to do this would be by using an insert trigger on the data table where the claim is stored.

On the one hand this is a very simple solution to your requirement. However, you must make sure that it is well documented. Functionality, built into triggers can be hard to maintain.

I don't see how an insert trigger would work - it's going to fire every time a claim is inserted to that table; how is it going to know when the last claim was inserted?

Since you're using a Two-Way Port, you can manage the process in an Orchestration. That way, you don't have to worry about matching the request and responses yourself.

The EDI project is in a encrypted format, and we don't have any orchestration at all. What we do is just receiving EDI files from upstream and transforming to xml with the help of biztalk, then send to downstream and downsteam will return a MDN response. How can I make the MDN response with our "OrderID" included?

Well, any encryption and an Orchestration aren't really related. While you don't have to use an Orchestration, it is definitely the easiest way to manage the Two-Way Operation. As for the content of the MDN, that's up to the receiver (downstream system).

We decided to use the single (rather than multiple) HIPAA schema, so the claim files is turned into a single XML message containing multiple 2000A loops. Then we iterate through those loops, map 'em in, and fire off the proc when complete.

I've had to use EDI as well and I agree. We used BizTalk to map it which worked well. Many system are built on EDI(well before XML).

Maybe I wouldn't have the problem if I was using BizTalk... but unfortunately the price for it is waaaay too much to even bother considering as a solution.

I'm not immediately familiar with the tutorial you mention, but below are steps to find where any document has gone to in BizTalk.

First two places to check are in the event viewer and in the BizTalk Server Administration Console.

Check you have no errors in the event viewer.

In the admin console, click on the BizTalk Group in the left hand window and you should see two columns in the right hand pane, Work in Progress and Suspended Items. Click on Running service instances and Suspended service instances. Check that you message is not delayed for any reason (a Send Port being turned off perhaps).

In HAT, select Queries -> Most recent 100 service instances. Find the pipeline that will have wrote out your file, right click the service instance and select Message Flow. In the message flow view you should see in the URL the disk location where your file was written to.

(You can also look in the admin console to check where the send port is pointing)

If you are able to dictate the format of the edi you receive, that's great and it makes your life much more simple.

  • As mentioned in a comment below, outline how the data needs to get to you ... e.g. via VAN (sterling, gxs, etc).
  • Create your own document like the ones you mentioned above. Tell the what segments elements are mandatory and under what conditions the optional ones must be sent. Give allowed values for everything.
  • if the sender can already generate edi, then you could also just get a file from them and use it as a baseline. add anything you need that they didn't include and remove the stuff you don't want or can't ignore.

These fields are available inside the Biztalk message if you do EDI receive. msgIn(EDI.ISASegment) contains all ISA segments. Then you can do substring on control numbers and then put it in your outgoing filename:

This way each control number will show up in your filename and you don't even need to open the file or check tracked messages.

I can think of a few options but I don't know how to guarantee you process all of the documents without either processing the document sequentially or inspecting it first to know the number of claims. A few options:

  • Rather than letting the pipeline do the splitting you could do the splitting in an orchestration and process them sequentially instead of in parallel.
  • Again have a single orchestration do the splitting but before beginning the splitting count the number of documents and have a separate process that is polling for that number of documents to be committed to the database. This would allow you to at least fire off all of the sub documents asynchronously.
  • Create a pipeline component that inspects the document before allowing the EDI component to do the splitting and similar to above have a separate process polling for all the claims to complete.

Seems that the biggest issue here is what do you do if one of the claims fails, you'll need some roll back strategy if you only want to commit when the full file completes.

#1 is probably what we're going to wind up going with - that solves the problem of when to execute the proc and can all handle rollback...

To RECEIVE an EDI file, you need a receive pipeline with an EDI disassembler.

The EdiReceive pipeline in the EDI BizTalk application is what you are looking for most likely. By default this pipeline does the necessary tracking, so you should be able to see in the "Tracked Message Events".

1) EdiReceive disassemble to XML file and subscribe to that file using a send port.

2) Once this works, try mapping the result with a 'Test Map' using VS. You might notice you did something wrong there.

3) Once this works, deploy your mapping to BizTalk and set it in the send port as an outbound map, so it gets executed.

I often work with EDIFACT, but never use the VS.NET validation anymore. I have found that actually deploying the schema/pipeline in BizTalk gives me much better results, often different results as well!

In addition to the above, actually deploying it into BizTalk itself, gets you additional validation options (trailing/leading spaces for example), party validation, etc...

Agreed. I can't recall the last time I did Native validation in Visual Studio. Xml->Xml gets you 95% of the way there, then you clean up the EDI nuances by testing in BizTalk with your agreement, etc. Some settings are only available in the Agreement so it's mostly unavoidable.

@SteveC Testing is handled by just redeploying the artifacts to BizTalk over and over again, until I get what is needed. Unfortunately that is the biggest downside to this approach.

It is not suggested to replace the messageID.

Could you provide more detail on how that happen: ""OrderID" is in received the EDI file" but you cannot get the "OrderID" from the response?

Is the response from your downstream?

No, I mean I get EDI file from upstream which with "OrderID" included, and then I send it thorugh biztalk, the downstream will return a response to tell me that they have received the file successsfully, but they often told us some Order is not received by them, what we get from included nothing to help figure out which order it is.To put it simply, we send them an order but we can't make sure the order is recieved by them from the response they returned.

So, BizTalk application here just give you "file level" response here, but what you expected is "order level".
