Here are a few scripts / stored procedures that most of the BizTalk newbies would love to know.

These scripts are very useful in a development environment to clean up your MessageBox and Tracking databases.

To clean up the MessageBox

  • First create the stored procedure bts_CleanupMsgBox by running the sql script found in <BizTalk Installation Folder>\Schema\msgbox_cleanup_logic.sql against your MessageBox database(BizTalkMsgBoxDb).
    • Note that your BizTalkMsgBoxDb database will already have a dummy stored procedure by the same name which does nothing, so it is important that you run the above script if this is your first time.
  • Stop all BizTalk services.
  • Reset IIS server (run iisreset from start/run) if you are running any webservices
  • Execute stored procedure bts_CleanupMsgbox on your message box database
  • Execute stored procedure bts_PurgeSubscriptions on your message box database
  • Restart all BizTalk services

To clean up the Tracking data

  • Stop all BizTalk services.
  • Execute stored procedure dtasp_CleanHMData on your tracking database (BizTalkDTADb)
  • Restart all BizTalk services
