Setting the AmazonSES Adapter Configuration Properties for a Dynamic Send Port

A dynamic send port does not provide any transport configuration options in BizTalk Explorer because it is expected that these properties will be provided with the context properties associated with the message. These properties can be set in a custom pipeline or in an orchestration. To set message configuration properties in an orchestration you can do the following:

  • Add a Construct Message shape to your orchestration.
  • Configure the Construct Message shape to construct a new message. (for example Message_2)
  • Add a Message Assignment shape to the Construct Message shape.
  • Add code to the Message Assignment shape to initialize the message that you constructed and to set the appropriate configuration properties for the message.

Configuring the AmazonSES Send Port with the BizTalk Server Administration Console

To configure the send port by using the BizTalk Server Administration console, use the following procedure:

To configure variables for a AmazonSES send port:

  1. In the BizTalk Server Administration console, create a new send port or double-click an existing send port to modify it. For more information, see How to Create a Send Port. Configure all of the send port options and specify nsoftware.AmazonSES 2022 for the Type option in the Transport section of the General tab.
  2. On the General tab, in the Transport section, click the Configure button next to Type.
  3. In the nsoftware.AmazonSES 2022 Transport Properties dialog box, use the following properties to:

AccessKey Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

The access key to use for authentication.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property specifies the access key that should be used for authentication. Both this property and SecretKey must be set before attempting any operations which connect to the server.

Attachments Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

Specifies which files the component should include as attachments in the outgoing message.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

Attachments may be used when sending an email to specify which files will be included as attachments to the outgoing message.

The value should be a pipe ("|") -delimited sequence of one or more filenames. The filenames should be specified with paths if necessary, so that the files may be found on the local file system.

If this property is set to an empty string, no attachments will be included in the outgoing message.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

BCc Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

A comma separated list of addresses for blind carbon copies (optional).

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

The BCc property specifies a comma separated list of destinations for blind carbon copies of the mail message. A copy of the message is sent to each destination, but individual recipients never see the list of the other recipients.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

Cc Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

A comma separated list of addresses for carbon copies (optional).

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

The Cc property specifies a comma separated list of destinations for carbon copies of the mail message. A copy of the message is sent to each destination, and this header is sent to every recipient of the message. If you don't want to copy this information to every recipient, then use blind carbon copies instead (see the description of the BCc).

This property is not available in the Receiver.

DeliveryNotificationTo Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

Whether or not a delivery receipt should be returned to the sender.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

When set to True, a delivery receipt will be requested. If the email recipient so chooses, a delivery receipt will be sent to the email address in the From property.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

ErrorThreshold Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

The maximum number of errors before the component shuts down.

Data Type

Integer

Default Value

5

Remarks

This property limits the number of errors that the adapter can incur before it shuts down and stops processing messages.

If set to 0 the adapter will never shutdown.

Note that if the operation completes successfully the current error count will be reset.

This property may be configured on the adapter's static handler property page in the BizTalk Server administration console.

This property is not available in the Sender.

Firewall Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

A set of properties related to firewall access.

Data Type

Firewall

Remarks

This is a Firewall type property which contains fields describing the firewall through which the adapter will attempt to connect.

From Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

The email address of the sender (required).

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

The From property identifies the sender of the message. A valid email address is required. Examples of valid addresses are: "Friendly Name" <address@company.com> or address@company.com

This property is not available in the Receiver.

MaxThreads Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

The maximum number of threads that the component may consume.

Data Type

Integer

Default Value

20

Remarks

This property limits the number of concurrent threads that the adapter may consume while completing its work.

This property can only be configured through the adapter's static handler property page in the BizTalk Server administration console.

MaxTransmissionBatchSize Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

The maximum number of messages that can be sent in a single batch.

Data Type

Integer

Default Value

1

Remarks

This property controls the maximum size of an outbound message batch.

Note: be careful when modifying this property as it directly effects the efficiency of the transmit adapter. Setting MaxTransmissionBatchSize to a low value in an environment that requires transmission of large quantities of data will result in the adapter accumulating several small batches. If TransmitBatchMode is set to Parallel, this will result in the adapter transmitting many small batches at once and can put a heavy load on the processor.

Conversely, if TransmitBatchMode is set to Serial, setting MaxTransmissionBatchSize to a large value may result in long transmission delays as the adapter will wait on existing work to complete before accepting new messages from the BizTalk Message Engine. This is especially true when the adapter is transmitting large data.

This property can only be configured through the adapter's static handler property page in the BizTalk Server administration console.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

MessageHTML Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

The HTML text of the message.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

The MessageHTML property contains the HTML version of the message. When this property is set, the adapter will send the email as an HTML encoded message.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

MessageText Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

The text of the mail message (optional).

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

The string in MessageText is sent as the text of the message.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

Other Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

Defines a set of configuration settings to be used by the component.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

The adapter accepts one or more 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 adapter, access to these internal properties is provided through the Other property.

The Other property may be set to one or more configuration settings (name/value pairs). Set one setting per line. For example: configname1=value1 configname2=value2

PollingInterval Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

The amount of time, in seconds, between download attempts.

Data Type

Integer

Default Value

60

Remarks

The adapter will wait for the number of seconds indicated before attempting another download.

This property is not available in the Sender.

ReadReceiptTo Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

Whether or not a receipt should be sent when the email has been read.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

When set, a read receipt will be requested. If the email recipient so chooses, a receipt will be sent to the email address in the From property.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

ReplyTo Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

A mail address to reply to (optional).

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

If the ReplyTo property contains a non-empty string, it sets the address to use for replies (useful if this address is different from the one in From).

This property is not available in the Receiver.

RequeueEndpoints Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

Whether to requeue receive endpoints if the polling interval has not been reached.

Data Type

Boolean

Default Value

false

Remarks

This setting controls whether receive endpoints are requeued for later processing if the polling interval has not yet been reached. When this setting is set to No (default) each thread will block until the polling interval for the corresponding receive location is reached. If there exist more active receive locations than MaxThreads it is possible for some threads to block the execution of others since they may be waiting for a polling interval.

When this setting is set to Yes if the polling interval has not been reached the thread will not block until the polling interval is reached, and instead the endpoint will be requeued to be processed later. This lets subsequent endpoints in the queue to be processed.

If MaxThreads is set to a low value and there are a larger number of receive locations setting this to Yes will help assure that polling intervals are respected and receive locations poll in a timely manner.

The default value is No.

This property can only be configured through the adapter's static handler property page in the BizTalk Server administration console.

This property is not available in the Sender.

RuntimeLicense Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

Specifies the component runtime license key.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

You can use the RuntimeLicense property to set the runtime key for the adapter license.

This property may be configured on the adapter's static handler property page in the BizTalk Server administration console.

SecretKey Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

The secret key to use for authentication.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property specifies the secret key that should be used for authentication. Both this property and AccessKey must be set before attempting any operations which connect to the server.

SendTo Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

A comma separated list of addresses for destinations (required).

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

The SendTo property specifies a comma separated list of destinations for the mail message. A copy of the message is sent to each of them.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

SSLAcceptServerCert Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

Instructs the component to unconditionally accept the server certificate that matches the supplied certificate.

Data Type

Certificate

Remarks

If it finds any issues with the certificate presented by the server, the adapter will normally terminate the connection with an error. You may override this behavior by supplying a value for SSLAcceptServerCert. If the certificate supplied in SSLAcceptServerCert is the same as the certificate presented by the server, then the server certificate is accepted unconditionally, and the connection will continue normally.

This property is used to set a Public Key Certificate.

Ordinarily, the system will attempt to locate the public key in trusted certificate stores in the system registry. If a match is found, the certificate is trusted, and the process proceeds without error. If the certificate is not trusted, the adapter will report an error.

You may explicitly set a public key, either to accept a key that is not installed on the system, or to ensure that a specific key is presented. Public key certificates may be loaded from the machine registry or from file. If you click on the ellipses, a certificate selection dialog will open. To select a public key from the system registry, select the System Store tab or the User Store tab, and highlight the appropriate registry store. The list of available certificates will be shown below.

Alternatively, you may specify a public key on file. Select the PEM or Certificate File tabs to load a public key from file. You can use the browse button to examine the file system for the certificate that you wish to use. Public keys typically are stored in .CER, .DER, or .PEM files, but other formats may be used. You can click on the Open button to examine the contents of the certificate. Or, if you have a certificate stored in memory, you can write the contents of the certificate into the text box provided. Note that if you are loading a certificate from memory, the certificate must be Base-64 encoded, or the string representation of the certificate may become corrupted and uninterpretable.

Regardless of how you selected the certificate, once you hit the OK button, the adapter will attempt to verify that certificate selection. If successful, the subject of the certificate will be displayed in the property field. If the adapter was not able to verify the selection, a dialog box will appear instead detailing the verification error.

Note: You may also set the Accept Any field to Yes without opening the certificate selection dialog to force the adapter to unilaterally authenticate any server during the security handshake. It is strongly recommended that you use this only for testing purposes. Set the LogMode to Info to cause the adapter to report the server's credentials to Location.

SSLCert Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

The certificate to use for client authentication during the SSL handshake.

Data Type

Certificate

Remarks

This property is used to assign a specific certificate for SSL client authentication.

This field is used to set a Private Key Certificate.

Private key certificates may be loaded from the registry, from files in PKCS#12 format, or from a PEM file format. If you click on the ellipses, a certificate selection dialog will open. To select a private key from the system registry, select the System Store tab or the User Store tab, and highlight the appropriate registry store. The list of certificates which have private keys will be shown below.

To select a private key certificate from a file in PKCS#12 format, select the PFX Store tab. The browse button can be used to examine the file system for PKCS#12 (.pfx or .p12) certificates. If you wish to examine the certificate, provide the password in the field provided and click on the Open button to examine the file store for certificates present. To load a certificate from PEM files, select the PEM tab. Like the PFX file selection, you can specify the password and click the Open button to examine the certificates in the PEM store, or you may paste any PEM data stored in memory.

Regardless of how you selected the certificate, once you hit the OK button, the adapter will attempt to verify that certificate selection. If successful, the subject of the certificate will be displayed in the property field. If the adapter was not able to verify the selection, a dialog box will appear instead detailing the verification error.

Subject Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

The subject of the mail message (optional).

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

The string in Subject is used as the subject of the email.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

Timeout Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

A timeout for the component.

Data Type

Integer

Default Value

60

Remarks

If the Timeout property is set to 0, all operations will run uninterrupted until successful completion, or an error condition is encountered.

If Timeout is set to a positive value, the adapter will wait for the operation to complete before returning control.

If Timeout expires, and the operation is not yet complete, the adapter fails with an error.

Please note that by default, all timeouts are inactivity timeouts, i.e. the timeout period is extended by Timeout seconds when data is successfully sent or received.

Optionally, the behavior of the adapter may be changed to absolute timeouts, i.e. the adapter will wait for a maximum of Timeout seconds since the beginning of the operation, without extending the timeout period during communications.

This behavior is controlled by the AbsoluteTimeout configuration setting.

The default value for the Timeout property is 60 (seconds).

TransmitBatchMode Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

How the transmitter processes batches.

Data Type

Enumeration

Possible Values

Parallel (0)
Serial (1)

Default Value

0

Remarks

This property controls how the transmitter processes message batches:

ParallelThe adapter will process however many batches the BizTalk Message Engine sends it.

The number of maximum concurrent batches may be controlled by the MaxThreads property.

SerialThe adapter will queue batches from the BizTalk Message Engine and process them one at a time.

This property can only be configured through the adapter's static handler property page in the BizTalk Server administration console.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

TransportLog Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

Tells the component where and how to report information about its operations.

Data Type

Log

Remarks

This is a Log type property which contains fields describing how and where the adapter will record information about its execution.

This property may be configured on the adapter's static handler property page in the BizTalk Server administration console.

URI Property (AmazonSES Adapter)

The Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the send port or receive location.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property specifies a URI for the send port or receive location. Setting this property is optional.

By default the adapter will automatically generate a URI. You may choose to specify your own value here to be used in place of the generated URI.

If this value is specified it must begin with the correct prefix, as seen in the default value.

Certificate Type

The digital certificate being used.

Remarks

This type describes the current digital certificate. The certificate may be a public or private key. The fields are used to identify or select certificates.

Fields

Store
String

The name of the certificate store for the client certificate.

The StoreType field specifies the type of the certificate store specified by Store. If the store is password protected, specify the password in StorePassword.

Store is used in conjunction with the Subject field in order to specify client certificates. If Store has a value, and Subject is set, a search for a certificate is initiated. Please refer to the Subject field for details.

Designations of certificate stores are platform-dependent.

The following are designations of the most common User and Machine certificate stores in Windows:

MYA certificate store holding personal certificates with their associated private keys.
CACertifying authority certificates.
ROOTRoot certificates.
SPCSoftware publisher certificates.

In Java, the certificate store normally is a file containing certificates and optional private keys.

When the certificate store type is PFXFile, this property must be set to the name of the file. When the type is PFXBlob, the property must be set to the binary contents of a PFX file (i.e. PKCS12 certificate store).

If the provider is OpenSSL, the certificate store is a file containing a certificate and a private key. This property must be set to the name of the file.

StorePassword
String

If the certificate store is of a type that requires a password, this property is used to specify that password in order to open the certificate store.

StoreType
CertStoreTypes

The type of certificate store for this certificate.

The adapter supports both public and private keys in a variety of formats. When the cstAuto value is used the adapter will automatically determine the type. This field can take one of the following values:

0 (cstUser - default)For Windows, this specifies that the certificate store is a certificate store owned by the current user. Note: this store type is not available in Java.
1 (cstMachine)For Windows, this specifies that the certificate store is a machine store. Note: this store type is not available in Java.
2 (cstPFXFile)The certificate store is the name of a PFX (PKCS12) file containing certificates.
3 (cstPFXBlob)The certificate store is a string (binary or base64-encoded) representing a certificate store in PFX (PKCS12) format.
4 (cstJKSFile)The certificate store is the name of a Java Key Store (JKS) file containing certificates. Note: this store type is only available in Java.
5 (cstJKSBlob)The certificate store is a string (binary or base64-encoded) representing a certificate store in Java Key Store (JKS) format. Note: this store type is only available in Java.
6 (cstPEMKeyFile)The certificate store is the name of a PEM-encoded file that contains a private key and an optional certificate.
7 (cstPEMKeyBlob)The certificate store is a string (binary or base64-encoded) that contains a private key and an optional certificate.
8 (cstPublicKeyFile)The certificate store is the name of a file that contains a PEM- or DER-encoded public key certificate.
9 (cstPublicKeyBlob)The certificate store is a string (binary or base64-encoded) that contains a PEM- or DER-encoded public key certificate.
10 (cstSSHPublicKeyBlob)The certificate store is a string (binary or base64-encoded) that contains an SSH-style public key.
11 (cstP7BFile)The certificate store is the name of a PKCS7 file containing certificates.
12 (cstP7BBlob)The certificate store is a string (binary) representing a certificate store in PKCS7 format.
13 (cstSSHPublicKeyFile)The certificate store is the name of a file that contains an SSH-style public key.
14 (cstPPKFile)The certificate store is the name of a file that contains a PPK (PuTTY Private Key).
15 (cstPPKBlob)The certificate store is a string (binary) that contains a PPK (PuTTY Private Key).
16 (cstXMLFile)The certificate store is the name of a file that contains a certificate in XML format.
17 (cstXMLBlob)The certificate store is a string that contains a certificate in XML format.
18 (cstJWKFile)The certificate store is the name of a file that contains a JWK (JSON Web Key).
19 (cstJWKBlob)The certificate store is a string that contains a JWK (JSON Web Key).
20 (cstSecurityKey)The certificate is present on a physical security key accessible via a PKCS11 interface.

To use a security key the necessary data must first be collected using the CERTMGR adapter. The ListStoreCertificates method may be called after setting CertStoreType to cstSecurityKey, CertStorePassword to the PIN, and CertStore to the full path of the PKCS11 dll. The certificate information returned in the CertList event's CertEncoded parameter may be saved for later use.

When using a certificate, pass the previously saved security key information as the Store and set StorePassword to the PIN.

Code Example: SSH Authentication with Security Key certmgr.CertStoreType = CertStoreTypes.cstSecurityKey; certmgr.OnCertList += (s, e) => { secKeyBlob = e.CertEncoded; }; certmgr.CertStore = @"C:\Program Files\OpenSC Project\OpenSC\pkcs11\opensc-pkcs11.dll"; certmgr.CertStorePassword = "123456"; //PIN certmgr.ListStoreCertificates(); sftp.SSHCert = new Certificate(CertStoreTypes.cstSecurityKey, secKeyBlob, "123456", "*"); sftp.SSHUser = "test"; sftp.SSHLogon("myhost", 22);

21 (cstBCFKSFile)The certificate store is the name of a file that contains a BCFKS (Bouncy Castle FIPS Key Store). Note: this store type is only available in Java and .NET.

99 (cstAuto)The store type is automatically detected from the input data. This setting may be used with both public and private keys and can detect any of the supported formats automatically.

Subject
String

The subject of the certificate used for client authentication.

When this property is set, a search is performed in the current certificate store certificate with matching subject.

If an exact match is not found, the store is searched for subjects containing the value of the property.

When setting the property to a partial subject, CN= should be omitted. For example, the following code would find the certificate with subject CN=Test Certificate, OU=People, C=US

Example (Searching with partial subject)

Control.CertSubject = "Test"

If a match is not found, the property is set to an empty string, and no certificate is selected.

The special value "*" picks a random certificate in the certificate store.

If a matching certificate is found, Subject is set to the full subject of the matching certificate.

Thumbprint
String

The thumbprint of the certificate.

This field is used to specify the thumbprint of the certificate. When there are multiple certificates in the store that have the same subject, the thumbprint will be used to distinguish between them.

Constructors

Constructors are only relevant when configuring adapters in orchestrations.

public Certificate();

Creates a Certificate instance whose properties can be set.

public Certificate(string certificateFile);

Opens CertificateFile and reads out the contents as an X509 public key.

public Certificate(byte[] certificateData);

Parses CertificateData as an X509 public key.

public Certificate(CertStoreTypes certStoreType, string store, string storePassword, string subject);

CertStoreType identifies the type of certificate store to use. See StoreType for descriptions of the different certificate stores. Store is a file containing the certificate store. StorePassword is the password used to protect the store. After the store has been successfully opened, the constructor will attempt to find the certificate identified by Subject . This can be either a complete or a substring match of the X509 certificate's subject Distinguished Name (DN).

public Certificate(CertStoreTypes certStoreType, string store, string storePassword, byte[] encoded);

CertStoreType identifies the type of certificate store to use. See StoreType for descriptions of the different certificate stores. Store is a file containing the certificate store. StorePassword is the password used to protect the store. After the store has been successfully opened, the constructor will load Encoded as an X509 certificate and search the opened store for a corresponding private key.

public Certificate(CertStoreTypes certStoreType, byte[] storeBlob, string storePassword, string subject);

CertStoreType identifies the type of certificate store to use. See StoreType for descriptions of the different certificate stores. Store is a string (binary- or base64-encoded) containing the certificate store. StorePassword is the password used to protect the store. After the store has been successfully opened, the constructor will attempt to find the certificate identified by Subject . This can be either a complete or a substring match of the X509 certificate's subject Distinguished Name (DN).

public Certificate(CertStoreTypes certStoreType, byte[] storeBlob, string storePassword, byte[] encoded);

CertStoreType identifies the type of certificate store to use. See StoreType for descriptions of the different certificate stores. Store is a string (binary- or base64-encoded) containing the certificate store. StorePassword is the password used to protect the store. After the store has been successfully opened, the constructor will load Encoded as an X509 certificate and search the opened store for a corresponding private key.

Firewall Type

The firewall the component will connect through.

Remarks

When connecting through a firewall, this type is used to specify different properties of the firewall such as the firewall Host and the FirewallType.

Fields

AutoDetect
Boolean

Tells the adapter whether or not to automatically detect and use firewall system settings, if available.

FirewallType
FirewallTypes

Determines the type of firewall to connect through. The applicable values are the following:

fwNone (0)No firewall (default setting).
fwTunnel (1)Connect through a tunneling proxy. Port is set to 80.
fwSOCKS4 (2)Connect through a SOCKS4 Proxy. Port is set to 1080.
fwSOCKS5 (3)Connect through a SOCKS5 Proxy. Port is set to 1080.

Host
String

Name or IP address of firewall (optional). If a Host is given, requested connections will be authenticated through the specified firewall when connecting.

If the Host field is set to a Domain Name, a DNS request is initiated. Upon successful termination of the request, the Host field is set to the corresponding address. If the search is not successful, an error is returned.

Password
String

A password if authentication is to be used when connecting through the firewall. If Host is specified, the User and Password fields are used to connect and authenticate to the given firewall. If the authentication fails, a trappable error is fired.

Port
Integer

The TCP port for the firewall Host. See the description of the Host field for details.

Note that the Port is set automatically when FirewallType is set to a valid value. See the description of the FirewallType field for details.

User
String

A user name if authentication is to be used connecting through a firewall. If the Host is specified, the User and Password fields are used to connect and authenticate to the given Firewall. If the authentication fails, a trappable error is fired.

Constructors

Constructors are only relevant when configuring adapters in orchestrations.

public Firewall();

Log Type

A log where the component will record information about its operations.

Remarks

This describes how and where the adapter will record information describing its execution.

Fields

Location
String

This field describes the location where the logging information is to be written.

If the EventLog LogType has been chosen, this field must contain the name of the Event Log to which the information should be written. The default value for this field is "Application". If a value other than "Application" is set the computer must be restarted for the change to take effect. Note that the same event log must be used for all send ports and receive locations that use the same adapter.

If the File LogType has been chosen, this field must contain the location of the file to write logging information to on the file system.

The adapter also supports logging to files based on the current date and time. This allows for log files to be organized by days, months, or other intervals as specified. When specifying a log filename include a valid .NET date and time format string within the < and > characters. For instance C:\logs\sftp_<yyyyMMdd>.log or C:\logs\as2_<yyyyMMdd>T<hhmm>.log.

LogMode
LogModes

This field controls what information the adapter logs. The possible values have the following affect on the adapter's behavior:

VerboseThe adapter will report all information regarding the transport.
Info The adapter will report all major operations, as well as all warnings and errors.
WarningThe adapter will report any conditions that could result in unpredictable behavior as well as errors.
ErrorThe adapter will report all errors that prevent normal operations from completing.
FatalThe adapter will report only serious errors that cause the adapter to completely stop functioning.

LogType
LogTypes

This property controls where the adapter will log the information. The possible values have the following affect on the adapter's behavior:

NoneThe adapter will not report any logging information.
EventLogThe adapter will report all logging information to the event log. The specific event log must be defined in the Location field when this type is selected.
FileThe adapter will report all logging information to a file. The desired file must be specified in the Location field when this type has been selected.

Constructors

Constructors are only relevant when configuring adapters in orchestrations.

public Log();
public Log(LogTypes logType, string location, LogModes logMode);

Config Settings (AmazonSES Adapter)

The adapter 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 adapter, access to these internal properties is provided through the Other property.

SES Config Settings

AttachmentEncoding[index]:   Content-Transfer-Encoding for attached file (at index).

This configuration setting allows you to set the Content-Transfer-Encoding for each attached file in the Attachments array property. Valid array indices are from 0 to AttachmentCount - 1. When set to one of the below integer values, the attachment will be encoded using the specified encoding. The following encodings are supported:

07-bit
1Quoted-Printable
2Base64
38-bit

AttachmentName[index]:   Filename for the attached file (at index).

This configuration setting allows you to set the filename for each attached file when IncludeAttachments is used. Valid array indices are from 0 to AttachmentCount - 1. An index of -1 can be used to set the filename to the same value for all potential attachments. To set the filename for the attachment at index 2, you would set the string "AttachmentName[2]=%SourceFileNameNoExt%.txt".

AttachmentType[index]:   Content-type for attached file (at index).

This configuration setting allows you to set the Content-Type for each attached file. Valid array indices are from 0 to AttachmentCount - 1. To set the Content-Type for the attachment at index 2 you would set the string "AttachmentType[2]=application/octet-stream".

IncludeAttachments:   Determines if additional message parts are added to the outgoing E-Mail as attachments.

This is only applicable when sending. The following values may be set to indicate which BizTalk message parts are treated as attachments.

0None (no parts are added as attachments)
1Body (only the body part is added)
2Other (only additional parts are added)
3All (both the body and additional parts are added)

MessageDate:   The date of the mail message.

By default the adapter will automatically set the date to the current time when sending. To manually specify the date you may use this setting. RFC 822 contains detailed date format specifications. An example of a valid date is "Fri, 1 Mar 12 21:24:52 EST".

MessageHTMLFile:   Specifies a file that will be included as the email's HTML content.

This configuration setting can be used to specify a file that will be included in the HTML content of the email. If the MessageHTML property is also specified, the contents of the file will be included after the value in the MessageHTML property.

ParseHTML:   Whether or not to create a plaintext part from the HTML message.

When MessageHTML is set the adapter will automatically create a corresponding plaintext part if this value is True. Set this value to False to prevent the adapter from parsing the HTML and creating a plaintext part. The default value is True.

Priority:   The priority of the mail message.

This setting controls the priority of the message being sent. Possible values are:

PriorityMeaning
0 (default)Unspecified
1Normal
2Urgent
3Non-Urgent

URL:   If set, the default URL will be overridden by this value.

By default, the adapter uses the service's URL. Setting this config will override this value.

SSL Config Settings

ReuseSSLSession:   Determines if the SSL session is reused.

If set to true, the adapter will reuse the context if and only if the following criteria are met:

  • The target host name is the same.
  • The system cache entry has not expired (default timeout is 10 hours).
  • The application process that calls the function is the same.
  • The logon session is the same.
  • The instance of the adapter is the same.

SSLCipherStrength:   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.

SSLEnabledCipherSuites:   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 adapter 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_3DES Possible values when UseInternalSecurityAPI is False (default) include:

If SSLEnabledProtocols is configured to use TLS 1.3 the following values are supported:

  • TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256
  • TLS_AES_256_GCM_SHA384

SSLEnabledCipherSuites is used together with SSLCipherStrength.

SSLEnabledProtocols:   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:

TLS1.312288 (Hex 3000) (Experimental)
TLS1.23072 (Hex C00) (Default)
TLS1.1768 (Hex 300) (Default)
TLS1 192 (Hex C0) (Default)
SSL3 48 (Hex 30)
SSL2 12 (Hex 0C)

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.

SSLIncludeCertChain:   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.

SSLSecurityFlags:   Flags that control certificate verification.

The following flags are defined (specified in hexadecimal notation). They can be or-ed together to exclude multiple conditions:

0x00000001Ignore time validity status of certificate.
0x00000002Ignore time validity status of CTL.
0x00000004Ignore non-nested certificate times.
0x00000010Allow unknown Certificate Authority.
0x00000020Ignore wrong certificate usage.
0x00000100Ignore unknown certificate revocation status.
0x00000200Ignore unknown CTL signer revocation status.
0x00000400Ignore unknown Certificate Authority revocation status.
0x00000800Ignore unknown Root revocation status.
0x00008000Allow test Root certificate.
0x00004000Trust test Root certificate.
0x80000000Ignore non-matching CN (certificate CN not-matching server name).

TLS12SignatureAlgorithms:   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 adapter 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 adapter 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-dsa The 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.

TLS12SupportedGroups:   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:

  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1" (default)

TLS13KeyShareGroups:   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:

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448"
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1"
  • "ffdhe_2048" (default)
  • "ffdhe_3072" (default)
  • "ffdhe_4096"
  • "ffdhe_6144"
  • "ffdhe_8192"

TLS13SignatureAlgorithms:   The allowed certificate signature algorithms.

This setting holds a comma separated list of allowed signature algorithms. Possible values are:

  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha256" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha384" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha512" (default)
The default value is rsa_pkcs1_sha256,rsa_pkcs1_sha384,rsa_pkcs1_sha512. This setting is only applicable when SSLEnabledProtocols includes TLS 1.3.
TLS13SupportedGroups:   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:

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1" (default)
  • "ffdhe_2048" (default)
  • "ffdhe_3072" (default)
  • "ffdhe_4096" (default)
  • "ffdhe_6144" (default)
  • "ffdhe_8192" (default)
