LogDirectory Property

The path to a directory for logging.

Data Type


Default Value



Setting LogDirectory will instruct the adapter to log the details of each transmission to unique files in the specified directory.

In the Send Adapter, the adapter will write a single file for each transmission, with extension ".log". In case of error an additional file will be written with extension ".err", and the error will be reported in both files.

In the Receive Adapter, two files will be written for each transmission. The diagnostic log will have the extension ".log" and will log the complete text of the incoming request, the EDI data (if it could to be determined), and the outgoing response. The data file will have the extension ".dat" and will store the EDI data only. In the event of an error, an additional file with extension ".err" file will be written, and the error information will also be written to the ".log" file.

In both cases, the filenames will be chosen automatically by the adapter. Each filename will be the system time, in the format YYYY-MM-DD-HH-MM-SS-MMMM. The extensions "-2", "-3", etc. will be used in the case of a file conflict.

If either log cannot be written, an error will be reported in the event log. The BizTalk Server administrator should ensure that the appropriate write permissions are available.
