BAM Portal is not a SharePoint website

Posted: August 12, 2009  |  Categories: BizTalk Uncategorized

A common misconception is that SharePoint is needed for the BizTalk BAM Portal.  I just wanted to write this quick blog post to say that SharePoint is not needed for BAM or the BAM Portal. The BAM Portal is a normal ASP.NET website, and does not require SharePoint at all.

As a BizTalk Server 2009 prerequisite you only need SharePoint if you are using the Windows SharePoint Services Adapter.  The supported versions for the adapter are WSS 2.0 with Service Pack 3 (SP3), WSS 3.0 with Service Pack 1 (SP1), and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS).  So you do no need to install WSS or MOSS if you do not plan to use this adapter (but are welcome to 🙂 ).

In previous versions of BizTalk prior to 2009 SharePoint was also required by Business Activity Services (BAS), which has been removed and is not a part of the 2009 release.

Of course you can use a SharePoint webpart to present the data collected by the BAM activities and views, but it has nothing to do with the BAM Portal.
