WebDAV ConfigurationThe connector accepts one or more of the following configuration settings. Configuration settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the connector, access to these internal properties is provided through the Other property.
WebDAV Configuration Settings
The Authorization string to be sent to the server.If the Authorization setting contains a non-empty string,
an Authorization HTTP request header is added to the
request. This header conveys Authorization information to the
A common use for this property is to specify OAuth authorization string.
This property is provided so that the WebDAV connector can be extended with other security schemes in addition to the authorization schemes already implemented by the connector.
The AuthScheme property defines the authentication scheme used. In the case of HTTP Basic Authentication (default), every time User and Password are set, they are Base64 encoded, and the result is put in the Authorization header in the form "Basic [encoded-user-password]".
|DownloadCacheFile: When set, only new files will be downloaded from the server.This may be set to the location of a file on disk that will hold the names of files that were previously downloaded from the server. On each PollingInterval the connector will check to see if the file on the server exists in this list. If the file exists in this list, it is determined that the file was previously downloaded and is not downloaded on the current polling interval. The list is automatically updated on each polling interval.|
The number of minutes that a file name will remain in the download cache.If a file name is added to the DownloadCacheFile and is not seen on the server again within DownloadCacheFileDuration minutes, it will be removed from the cache.
This can prevent the download cache file from growing too large in certain cases.
The default value is 0, meaning that files will never be removed.
This setting is only applicable if DownloadCacheFile is set.
Whether the receive connector should consider metadata differences when deciding whether to download a file again.This setting is used in conjunction with DownloadCacheFile, and is only available on the receive connector. If DownloadCacheFile is enabled, this setting can be used to control how the receive connector uses the download file cache information when deciding whether to download a file again. (Similar to the "Enable Timestamp Comparison" property on Microsoft's FTP BizTalk Adapter.)
If this is set to False, the receive connector will not download a file again if the cache contains any information about it (that is, if it has been downloaded before).
If this is set to True, the receive connector will check the metadata of the remote file against its cached metadata, and will download the file again if any of the metadata differs.
Determines what happens when the server issues a redirect.This setting determines what happens when the server issues a redirect. Normally, the connector returns an error if the server responds
with an "Object Moved" message. If this setting is set to 1 (always), the new URL for the object is retrieved automatically every time.
If this setting is set to 2 (Same Scheme), the new URL is retrieved automatically only if the URL Scheme is the same, otherwise the connector will throw an exception.
Note that following the HTTP specification, unless this option is set to 1 (Always), automatic redirects will be performed only for 'GET' or 'HEAD' requests. Other methods could potentially change the conditions of the initial request and create security vulnerabilities.
Furthermore, if either the new URL server and port are different than the existing one, User and Password are also reset to empty, unless this setting is set to 1 (Always), in which case the same credentials are used to connect to the new server.
The default value is 0 (Never). In this case, redirects are never followed, and the connector will throw an exception instead.
Valid options are:
Note: This is applicable to the receive connector only.
The condition under which RenameTo is used.This setting controls when the value specified by RenameTo is used. If RenameTo is not specified, this setting has no impact. By default, downloaded files are only renamed after being successfully submitted to BizTalk (a value of 1).
Possible values are:
A filename to which RemoteFile will be renamed.After downloading a file, the file on the server may be renamed using this setting. This rename action will take place
after the batch submission to BizTalk. If you need to perform actions on a file before this, use the AfterGet property.
This setting is used in conjunction with RenameMode to conditionally rename a file. For instance, to rename a
file after it has been successfully submitted to BizTalk set the Other property of the connector like so:
|TemporaryDownloadExtension: An extension to be appended during download.During download, it may be necessary for the file on the server to be renamed. After the download is complete the file will be renamed back to the original name.|
|TemporaryUploadExtension: An extension to be appended during upload.During upload, it may be necessary for the RemoteFile to be written to a temporary file name. For example, some business process may be set up to expect a specific file extension. Using this setting will allow the connector to upload the file without the remainder of the process attempting to pick up the incomplete file.|
A temporary location on the server to store files before moving them to URL.If a value is specified, the connector will directly upload the file to TempURL. Once the file transfer is complete, the connector will move the file to the URL.
Note: This is applicable to the send connector only.
SSL Configuration Settings
Determines if the SSL session is reused.
If set to true, the connector will reuse the context if and only if the following criteria are met:
The minimum cipher strength used for bulk encryption.
This minimum cipher strength largely dependent on the security modules installed
on the system. If the cipher strength specified is not supported,
an error will be returned when connections are initiated.
Please note that this setting contains the minimum cipher strength requested from the security library.
Use this setting with caution. Requesting a lower cipher strength than necessary could potentially cause serious security vulnerabilities in your application.
The cipher suite to be used in an SSL negotiation.The enabled cipher suites to be used in SSL negotiation.
By default, the enabled cipher suites will include all available ciphers ("*").
The special value "*" means that the connector will pick all of the supported cipher suites. If SSLEnabledCipherSuites is set to any other value, only the specified cipher suites will be considered.
Multiple cipher suites are separated by semicolons.
Example values when UseInternalSecurityAPI is False (default):
// The "Other" property could contain ONE of the following lines: SSLEnabledCipherSuites=* SSLEnabledCipherSuites=CALG_AES_256 SSLEnabledCipherSuites=CALG_AES_256;CALG_3DESPossible values when UseInternalSecurityAPI is False (default) include:
// The "Other" property could contain ONE of the following lines: SSLEnabledCipherSuites=* SSLEnabledCipherSuites=TLS_DHE_DSS_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA SSLEnabledCipherSuites=TLS_DHE_DSS_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA;TLS_DH_ANON_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHAPossible values when UseInternalSecurityAPI is True include:
If SSLEnabledProtocols is configured to use TLS 1.3 the following values are supported:
Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.
Not all supported protocols are enabled by default (the value of this setting is 4032). If you want more granular control over the enabled protocols, you can set this property to the binary 'OR' of one or more of the following values:
Note: TLS 1.1 and TLS1.2 support are only available starting with Windows 7.
Note: Enabling TLS 1.3 will automatically set UseInternalSecurityAPI to True.
Whether the entire certificate chain is included in the SSLServerAuthentication event.This setting specifies whether the transport log contains the full certificate chain. By default this value is False and only the leaf certificate will be present.
If set to True all certificates returned by the server will be present in the transport log. This includes the leaf certificate, any intermediate certificate, and the root certificate.
Note: When UseInternalSecurityAPI is set to True this value is automatically set to True. This is needed for proper validation when using the internal provider.
Flags that control certificate verification.The following flags are defined (specified in hexadecimal
notation). They can be or-ed together to exclude multiple
Defines the allowed TLS 1.2 signature algorithms when UseInternalSecurityAPI is True.This setting specifies the allowed server certificate signature algorithms when UseInternalSecurityAPI is
True and SSLEnabledProtocols is set to allow TLS 1.2.
When specified the connector will verify that the server certificate signature algorithm is among the values specified in this setting. If the server certificate signature algorithm is unsupported the connector will fail with an error.
The format of this value is a comma separated list of hash-signature combinations. For instance:
// The "Other" could contain ALL of these lines: UseInternalSecurityAPI=true SSLEnabledProtocols=3072 TLS12SignatureAlgorithms=sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa,sha256-rsa,sha256-dsaThe default value for this setting is "sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa,sha224-rsa,sha224-dsa,sha256-rsa,sha256-dsa,sha384-rsa,sha384-dsa,sha512-rsa,sha512-dsa".
In order to not restrict the server's certificate signature algorithm, specify an empty string as the value for this setting, which will cause the signature_algorithms TLS 1.2 extension to not be sent.
The supported groups for ECC.This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.2 for ECC.
The default value is ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1.
When using TLS 1.2 and UseInternalSecurityAPI is set to True, the values refer to the supported groups for ECC. The following values are supported:
The groups for which to pregenerate key shares.This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange.
The groups specified here will have key share data pregenerated locally before establishing a connection.
This can prevent an additional round trip during the handshake if the group is supported by the server.
The default value is set to balance common supported groups and the computational resources required to generate key shares. As a result only some groups are included by default in this setting.
Note: All supported groups can always be used during the handshake even if not listed here, but if a group is used which is not present in this list it will incur an additional round trip and time to generate the key share for that group.
In most cases this setting does not need to be modified. This should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.
The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072
The values are ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The following values are supported:
The allowed certificate signature algorithms.This setting holds a comma separated list of allowed signature algorithms. Possible values are:
The supported groups for (EC)DHE key exchange.This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange.
This setting should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.
The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_x448,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072,ffdhe_4096,ffdhe_6144,ffdhe_8192
The values are ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The following values are supported:
General Configuration Settings
|AbsoluteTimeout: Determines whether timeouts are inactivity timeouts or absolute timeouts.If AbsoluteTimeout is set to True, any method which does not complete within Timeout seconds will be aborted. By default, AbsoluteTimeout is False, and the timeout is an inactivity timeout.|
The name of the local host or user-assigned IP interface through which connections are initiated or accepted.The LocalHost configuration contains the name of the local host as obtained by the Gethostname() system call, or if the user has assigned an IP address, the value of that address.
In multihomed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface) setting LocalHost to the value of an interface will make the connector initiate connections (or accept in the case of server connectors) only through that interface.
If the connector is connected, the LocalHost configuration shows the IP address of the interface through which the connection is made in internet dotted format (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd). In most cases, this is the address of the local host, except for multihomed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface).
Whether or not to delay when sending packets.
When true, the socket will send all data that is ready to send at once. When
false, the socket will send smaller buffered packets of data at small intervals.
This is known as the Nagle algorithm.
By default, this config is set to false.
|UseInternalSecurityAPI: Tells the connector whether or not to use the system security libraries or an internal implementation. By default the connector will use the system security libraries to perform cryptographic functions. Setting this to True tells the connector to use the internal implementation instead of using the system's security API.|
