What happens when HTTP receive location is outside its service window?

Posted: January 19, 2010  |  Categories: BizTalk Uncategorized

Have you ever asked yourself the question – what happens when a BizTalk HTTP receive location is outside it’s service window?


The file adapter doesn’t pick up any files from the folder when the receive location is outside the service window.

For the HTTP adapter BizTalk will return a 500 (Internal Server Error) response to the caller. It should really be 503 (Service Unavailable) but it’s better than it actually just working huh?

  • I have never asked myself this question, yet your answer is oddly satisfying!

    I think the group is a bit misleading – The first time I set this up – I thought you used to field to enter when you wanted a services window – ie. take the system down for maintenance – but it is actually the interval the location is active.

    • Yes, I see how it could be a bit misleading at first. The service window as you now know means the times of the day when the port will be operational.
