/n software Adapters for BizTalk
Version 22.0 [Build 8376]

RNIF Adapter

Properties   Config Settings  

The RNIF Component provides a way to send and receive RosettaNet messages.

Remarks

The RNIF Adapter can be used to send and receive RosettaNet messages. Encryption and Signing are supported, as well a variety of signature algorithms including SHA-256.

RNIF Send Adapter

The RNIF Send Adapter may be used to send RosettaNet messages to a partner's server. The adapter of properties may be configured before receiving messages. Some of the basic properties that should be set are:

The body of the BizTalk message submitted to the adapter will be used as the ServiceContent.

The adapter may be used in a Solicit Response Send Port. The response received from the server will be present in the body of the BizTalk message returned by the adapter.

The following properties are used to encrypt/sign the outgoing message and verify the signature on a received receipt.

The RNIF adapter only supports processing synchronous responses. Asynchronous responses cannot be processed.

RNIF Receive Adapter

The RNIF Receive Adapter is an isolated adapter which requires the use of a HTTP endpoint hosted in IIS to receive requests from your partner. Included in the demos folder of the installation is a "aspx-cs" folder with a "rnifserver.aspx" file. This file contains the necessary logic to receive requests and pass them to the RNIF receive location configured from the BizTalk Administration Console.

The HTTP endpoint is created during setup by default. Confirm that an application exists in IIS that has a physical path pointing to the "aspx-cs" demo directory on disk.

One receive location must be configured for each partner from which RosettaNet messages will be received. A variety of properties may be configured before receiving messages. Some of the basic properties that should be set are:

If the message is signed and/or encrypted, or if a signed receipt will be sent back in response the following properties are applicable:

Note that the adapter will automatically send a receipt after processing the data. This may be disabled by setting SendReceipt to False.

At this time only receipts may be sent in response to received messages. Responding with action messages is not supported.

RNIF Transmitter

Setting the RNIF 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 RNIF 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 RNIF 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.RNIF 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.

ActionCode Property (RNIF Adapter)

The code for this action.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property is a string which denotes the type of action for the current RosettaNet message, if it is an action. If it is a reply, then the ActionCode describes the type of action that the message is in reply to. An example is a "Purchase Order Request Action."

ActionMessage Property (RNIF Adapter)

Whether or not this message is an action message.

Data Type

Boolean

Default Value

true

Remarks

This property indicates whether or not the message is an action message. A RosettaNet action is defined as a message which requires or requests a business activity. A "PurchaseOrderRequestMessage" is a valid Business Action message, as is the corresponding "PurchaseOrderConfirmMessage". The latter, however, is also a reply to the original action request.

Receipt acknowledgments are considered Signals, and not Business Action messages, even though they contain all of the properties of a valid Business Action message.

This property is a field of the service header.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

ActionMessageStandardName Property (RNIF Adapter)

The name of the standard used to create this action.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

While the RosettaNet community has a set of widely adopted, pre-defined and standardized message templates, it also allows for business partners to agree on specification geared more toward their particular needs. If a special, non-RosettaNet standard is to be used to create the action message, the name of the standard must be reported in ActionMessageStandardName and the version in ActionMessageStandardVersion. This way, the receiving entity can know how to process and interpret the incoming business message.

Since replies may sent in response to a message created using such a specialized standard, the standard used to create the original message should be referenced using the OriginalMessageStandardName and OriginalMessageStandardVersion when creating or processing replies.

This property is a field of the service header.

ActionMessageStandardVersion Property (RNIF Adapter)

The version of the standard used to create this action.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

While the RosettaNet community has a set of widely adopted, pre-defined and standardized message templates, it also allows for business partners to agree on specification geared more toward their particular needs. If a special, non-RosettaNet standard is to be used to create the action message, the name of the standard must be reported in ActionMessageStandardName and the version in ActionMessageStandardVersion. This way, the receiving entity can know how to process and interpret the incoming business message.

Since replies may sent in response to a message created using such a specialized standard, the standard used to create the original message should be referenced using the OriginalMessageStandardName and OriginalMessageStandardVersion when creating or processing replies.

This property is a field of the service header.

AsyncRespURL Property (RNIF Adapter)

The URL to which the asynchronous response is posted.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

Certificate Property (RNIF Adapter)

The digital id to be used for decryption and signing.

Data Type

Certificate

Remarks

This property is used to assign a specific certificate for signing outgoing messages and decrypting incoming messages.

RNIF Send Adapter

The certificate with private key specified will be used to sign outgoing messages. If the response from the server is encrypted this will be used to decrypt the response.

RNIF Receive Adapter

The certificate with private key specified will be used to decrypt received messages. If a signed response is sent this will be used to sign the response.

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.

Remarks

This property is the full XML data of the RosettaNet message Delivery Header. This header contains information about the sending and receiving business processes, as well as tracking data for the message itself. This header was introduced by RNIF 2.0 to speed the movement of RosettaNet messages through message-forwarding hubs.

This property is an aggregate property containing XML either generated from or parsed into various other properties of the adapter. If the value of a related property changes, this property will be updated the next time it is polled and the current valid XML will be returned. When this property is set directly, the adapter will automatically parse the XML and validate the content of the header to ensure that all required fields contain appropriate values. Once this property has been set and validated, the following properties will be populated:

NOTE: If RNIFVersion is set to v1, the value of this property is ignored when generating messages.

EncryptionAlgorithm Property (RNIF Adapter)

The algorithm used to encrypt the EDI data.

Data Type

String

Default Value

MaxBatchSize Property (RNIF Adapter)

The maximum size, in MB, of the current batch (0 indicates no limit).

Data Type

Integer

Default Value

0

Remarks

This property limits the maximum amount of data the adapter can store before finalizing and processing the current batch to the number of bytes indicated.

Note: the default value, "0" indicates that there is no limit on the size of the batch. This value is not recommended for production environments as it may result in extremely large batches being held in memory before the adapter moves the data to the next stage of processing.

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.

MaxFileCount Property (RNIF Adapter)

The maximum number of files in the current batch (0 indicates no limit).

Data Type

Integer

Default Value

10

Remarks

This property places a limit on the number of files that can be transmitted in a single batch.

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.

MaxFileSize Property (RNIF Adapter)

The maximum size, in MB, of a file in the current batch (0 indicates no limit).

Data Type

Integer

Default Value

0

Remarks

This property limits the maximum size of any file in the current transmission batch to the number of bytes indicated.

Note: the default value, "0" indicates that there is no limit on the size of the batch. This value is not recommended for production environments as it may result in extremely large batches being held in memory before the adapter moves the data to the next stage of processing.

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.

MaxPersistentConnections Property (RNIF Adapter)

The maximum number of simultaneous persistent connections when sending.

Data Type

Integer

Default Value

1

Remarks

This setting specifies the maximum number of simultaneous persistent connections when sending.

The default value is 1, which limits the adapter to using one persistent connection for the adapter at any one time. This means when ConnectionLifetime is set to Persisted the send adapter will first check to see if an existing connection is present before transmitting data. In the case where a connection exists but another instance of the send port is using the connection the adapter will wait for the connection to become free. A value of 1 effectively serializes all communication for the send port through one persistent connection.

By setting a value greater than 1 a pool of persistent connections can be created. This allows multiple simultaneous persistent connections to be used. When the send adapter is active it will check to see if there are any existing connections. In the case where a connection exists but is being used by another instance of the send port it will attempt to create a new persistent connection. If creating a new persistent connection would exceed the limit specified in this setting the adapter will instead wait for a connection to become free. Setting this to a value greater than 1 allows multiple simultaneous connections to be made while still taking advantage of persistent connections to reduce the overhead of re-connecting.

Note: This only applies to the send adapter.

The default value is 1.

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.

MaxThreads Property (RNIF 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 (RNIF 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.

MessageDateTime Property (RNIF Adapter)

The time at which this message was sent.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property is a date and time stamp representing the moment the RosettaNet message was created. The sending process should set this value as close to the time when it sends as possible. The accepted standard for date fields in RosettaNet messages uses the format "YYYYMMDDThhmmss.sssZ", e.g. "20001121T145200.000Z". The format is interpreted as follows:

YYYYThis is the year of the time stamp.
MMThis is the month of the time stamp.
DDThis specifies the day of the month.
TThe 'T' denotes the separation between the date and the time stamps.
hhThis is the hour, in 24 hour format in which the message was sent.
mmThis specifies the minutes at which the message was sent.
ss.sss This is the seconds at which the message was sent. Everything after the decimal is a fraction of a seconds.
ZThis is a delimiter for the end of the date/time stamp.

The message in the example was sent at 2:52:00.000 PM November 11, 2000.

PIPCode Property (RNIF Adapter)

RosettaNet PIP code of this message.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

The ServiceContent of a RosettaNet message is an instance of a pre-defined, widely accepted and standardized RosettaNet business action document called a Partner Interface Process (PIP). These documents define the most common business action scenarios, as well as the most common information used by a company to complete transactions under these scenarios. Each PIP has its own code, and many PIPs are defined in multiple versions. To ensure that the receiving partner knows how to interpret the PIP instance, the code should be set in PIPCode and the version in PIPVersion.

Since no two business actions are exactly the same, each instance of PIP needs to have an associated identifier so that information about the transaction may be easily persisted to and retrieved from an external database. These instance ids are reported by the PIPInstanceId property. It is up to the sending client to ensure that this value is unique. The receiver should respond with an error if it receives a PIP instance id that has already been used.

This property is a field of the service header.

PIPInstanceId Property (RNIF Adapter)

The Id of this PIP instance.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

If the value of a related property changes, this property will be updated the next time it is polled and the current valid XML will be returned. When this property is set directly, the adapter will automatically parse the XML and validate the content of the header to ensure that all required fields contain appropriate values. Once this property has been set and validated, the following properties will be populated:

ReceiptSignerCert Property (RNIF Adapter)

The public certificate used to verify signed responses.

Data Type

Certificate

Remarks

This property specifies the partner's public certificate. It is used to verify the signature on signed responses. If this is not specified the certificate specified in RecipientCert will be used to verify the signature.

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.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

RecipientCert Property (RNIF Adapter)

The public certificate of the recipient used for encryption.

Data Type

RegisterIsolatedReceiverTimeout Property (RNIF Adapter)

This setting specifies the number of seconds the isolated receive adapter will search for a corresponding receive location.

Data Type

Integer

Default Value

15

Remarks

When processing an incoming request from the HTTP endpoints the adapter will look for the URI of a receive location which matches the incoming request. This process communicates with BizTalk and in high load scenarios this operation may require additional time to complete. The default value is 15 seconds. If an intermittent "Timeout while waiting for endpoint configuration" error is seen, set this to a larger value.

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.

ReplyHeaders Property (RNIF Adapter)

This property is used to retrieve headers from synchronous reply messages.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property is only used when the sender is requiring a synchronous reply or signal of acknowledgement to be sent by the receiver following its action message. This gets the header of the reply message or signal sent from the receiver. It is received from the synchronous connection.

NOTE: This property is only populated when a synchronous reply (i.e., a reply over the same HTTP connection as the POST) is received. In all other cases, it will be empty.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

ReplyMessage Property (RNIF Adapter)

Whether or not this message is a reply to another message.

Data Type

Boolean

Default Value

false

Remarks

This property is a boolean value indicating whether or not the message is a reply to a previous message or not. The first message in any business process is always an action message. Reply messages may be an update, another action, or a signal.

Some actions may request data, in which case a reply RosettaNet message must be sent with the data that was requested. All action messages sent in response to the original action message are considered replies.

When sending a reply, this property should be set to "True" to tell the receiver how to interpret and handle the message.

This property is a field of the service header.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

RequeueEndpoints Property (RNIF 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.

ResponseType Property (RNIF Adapter)

rtSyncThe response will be received on the same HTTP session as the initial request.
rtAsyncThe response will be received later.

This property is only available in RNIF version 2.0.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

RNIFSiteURL Property (RNIF Adapter)

The path to the website hosting the RNIF component.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

This is the virtual path of the application that will host the instance of the RNIF adapter. It is not necessary to include the schema ("http") or host information: the adapter will ignore everything other than the path information.

For example, if the URL you would post to is "http://localhost/RNIFReceiver/RNIFServer.aspx", you only need to set "/RNIFReceiver/RNIFServer.aspx".

This property is not available in the Sender.

RNIFVersion Property (RNIF Adapter)

The RNIF Standard Version used to generate this message.

Data Type

Enumeration

Possible Values

1 (0)
2 (1)

Default Value

SecureTransportRequired Property (RNIF Adapter)

Indicates that security is required when forwarding this message.

Data Type

Boolean

Default Value

false

Remarks

This property is a boolean value which denotes whether or not security is required when forwarding this message. Since RosettaNet messages are business messages, secure transport is often required. See RNIFSENDER for more information on sending messages over a secure transport.

This property is a field of the delivery header.

ServiceHeaderXML Property (RNIF Adapter)

The complete XML data from the Service Header.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

ServiceHeaderXML contains the full XML data of the RosettaNet message Service Header. This header includes information about the contents of the RosettaNet message itself. It contains information about the type of message, the PIP used to create the service content, and the various attachments as well as information about the business partners involved in the transaction, such as each entity's role.

This property is an aggregate property containing XML either generated from or parsed into various other properties of the adapter. If the value of a related property changes, this property will be updated the next time it is polled and the current valid XML will be returned. When this property is set directly, the adapter will automatically parse the XML and validate the content of the header to ensure that all required fields contain appropriate values. Once this property has been set and validated, the following properties will be populated:

SignatureAlgorithm Property (RNIF Adapter)

Signature algorithm to be used in outgoing messages.

Data Type

String

Default Value

"SHA256"

Remarks

Signature Algorithm can be set to indicate the preferred signing algorithm. Possible values are:

  • sha-512
  • sha-224

The default value is "sha256".

SignerCert Property (RNIF Adapter)

The public certificate used to verify signed requests.

Data Type

Certificate

Remarks

This property specifies the partner's public certificate. It is used to verify the signature on signed requests.

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.

This property is not available in the Sender.

SignReceipt Property (RNIF Adapter)

Whether or not to sign the receipt.

Data Type

Boolean

Default Value

false

Remarks

This property specifies whether receipts returned by the adapter are signed. The default value is False.

If set to True the receipt will be signed with the certificate specified by Certificate.

This property is not available in the Sender.

SSLAcceptServerCert Property (RNIF Adapter)

For sending HTTPS requests, a server certificate to unconditionally accept.

Data Type

Certificate

Remarks

In the Send Adapter, this property is used when communicating with trading partners via HTTPS to the URL specified in URL.

In the Receive Adapter, this property is used when an asynchronous MDN is requested by your trading partner to the URL specified in MDNDeliveryOption.

When an HTTPS request is issued by the adapter, a new secure connection is created with the trading partner. By default, the adapter will reject self-signed certificates and any other server certificates not signed by a trusted Certificate Authority (CA).

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 (RNIF 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.

StandardName Property (RNIF Adapter)

The name of the standard used to create this message.

Data Type

String

Default Value

"RosettaNet"

Remarks

This property is the name of the standard which was used to create the message. In this case, we are working with RosettaNet, so RosettaNet will always be the StandardName, unless this specification is used to send a non-RosettaNet type message. The type name and version must be specified when this occurs.

This property is a field of the preamble.

StandardVersion Property (RNIF Adapter)

The version of the standard used to create this message.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

StandardVersion describes the version of the standard used to create this message. In this case, the standard being used is RosettaNet. Therefore, the version will be which version of RosettaNet the sender is using.

This property is a field of the preamble.

Timeout Property (RNIF 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).

ToRole Property (RNIF Adapter)

The role of the entity receiving this message.

Data Type

String

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

URI Property (RNIF 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.

URL Property (RNIF Adapter)

The URL to which requests are sent.

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property describes the URL location where the partner will receive the message being sent. This must be set before the message may be sent. It tells HTTP where to send the message. The URL of the partner process should be known by each of the processes.

This property is not available in the Receiver.

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.

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);

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.

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.

Log Type

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

Remarks

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

Config Settings (RNIF 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.

RNIF Config Settings

ApplyBase64Encoding:   Allows you to control the base64 encoding of the message body when signing the message.

This setting allows you to control the base64 encoding of the message body when signing the message. By default, this value is true, and the body will be base64 encoded when the message is being signed.

Authorization:   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 server.

This setting is provided so that the adapter can be extended with other security schemes in addition to the authorization schemes already implemented by the adapter.

The AuthScheme; setting 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 setting in the form "Basic [encoded-user-password]".

AuthScheme:   The authorization scheme to be used when server authorization is to be performed.

Use the AuthScheme property to tell the component which type of authorization to perform when the User and Password properties are set. Possible values are:

0 (default)Basic
1Digest
2Proprietary
3None
4NTLM
5Negotiate
6OAuth

By default, AuthScheme is Basic (0), and if the User and Password configuration settings are set, the component will attempt basic authentication. If AuthScheme is set to Digest (1), digest authentication will be attempted instead.

For security reasons, setting this value will clear the values of User and Password.

ExpectedVersion:   The RNIF document version that the RNIFReceiver is expecting to receive.

This configuration option allow you to explicitly define the RNIF version of the document that you are expecting to receive. If this value is set, the component will not attempt to parse the RNIF version from the received headers and will attempt to process the received document as an RNIF document of the version specified in this configuration option. This setting is only applicable to the receive adapter

OptionEffect
0 (default)No expected version. Parses the RNIF version from received headers and process document based on this.
1Expect RNIF v1.1 document.
2Expect RNIF v2.0 document.

FromPartnerClassificationCode:   Code identifying the sending partner's function in the supply chain.

This setting specified the code identifying the sending partner's function in the supply chain.

GlobalProcessCode:   Business process identifier.

This setting specifies the business process identifier e.g. 'Manage Product Subscriptions'. This code is the name of a PIP specification document.

Password:   A password if authentication is to be used.

If AuthScheme is set to Basic, the User and Password are Base64 encoded and the result is put in the Authorization configuration setting in the form "Basic [encoded-user-password]".

If AuthScheme is set to Digest, the User and Password properties are used to respond to the HTTP Digest Authentication challenge from the server.

The User and Password properties must be set only after the URL property is set. When the URL property is set, for security reasons, User and Password are immediately cleared.

SendReceipt:   Whether to send a receipt automatically.

This setting specifies whether a receipt is sent in response to a received message. This is only applicable to the receive adapter. The default value is True.

ToPartnerClassificationCode:   Code identifying the receiving partner's function in the supply chain.

This setting specifies the code identifying the receiving partner's function in the supply chain.

TransactionCode:   The service transaction code.

This setting specifies the service transaction code. The code is the name of the business activity and the transaction dialog in the PIP specification document.

TransactionId:   A unique transaction Id.

This property specifies a unique alpha-numeric identifier that represents a specific instance of a business process, business transaction, business action or business signal. The instance identifier must be unique for a particular instance of a business process, business transaction, business action and business signal.

User:   A user name if authentication is to be used.

If AuthScheme is set to Basic, the User and Password are Base64 encoded and the result is put in the Authorization configuration setting in the form "Basic [encoded-user-password]".

If AuthScheme is set to Digest, the User and Password properties are used to respond to the HTTP Digest Authentication challenge from the server.

The User and Password properties must be set only after the URL property is set. When the URL property is set, for security reasons, User and Password are immediately cleared.

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)

General Config 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.

LocalHost:   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 adapter initiate connections (or accept in the case of server adapters) only through that interface.

If the adapter 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).

TcpNoDelay:   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 adapter whether or not to use the system security libraries or an internal implementation.

By default the adapter will use the system security libraries to perform cryptographic functions where applicable. When set to False calls to unmanaged code will be made. In certain environments this is not desirable. To use a completely managed security implementation set this setting to True. Setting this to True tells the adapter to use the internal implementation instead of using the system's security API.

Note: This setting is static. The value set is applicable to all adapters used in the application.

When this value is set the product's system DLL is no longer required as a reference, as all unmanaged code is stored in that file.

Supported Macros

The adapter also supports the following Macros. These values are not case sensitive and would be supplied to a property in the form %MacroName%.
