Testing BizTalk Multiple Source Maps

I was in a situation where I needed to test a multiple input map, but really didn’t want to run the entire orchestration to do it. I discovered that simply wrapping my messages in the following XML will allow me to run it as a test map XML source in the IDE.

I just needed an instance of each message being consolidated in the multi-source map shape in the orchestration. I pulled these from tracking in the production environment I’m working on.

<ns0:Root xmlns:ns0=”http://schemas.microsoft.com/BizTalk/2003/aggschema“>








Works like a charm and saved me a ton of time troubleshooting a mapping issue.
