BizTalk Migrator Webinar Series

EPISODE 9: BizTalk Migrator is released! A run through the codebase and repos

by Liz Ruffles

Microsoft have finally released their BizTalk Migrator tool for public preview. This open-source tool is designed to help automate the process of migrating from BizTalk Server (on-premises) to Azure Integration Solutions (AIS). We’ve been working closely with Microsoft since the private preview of the tool, and have been working with our BizTalk clients and Microsoft to test it, provide feedback, and even suggest additions to the tool for a while now. Be sure to join us for our next webinar on December 1st where we will continue our deep dive into this new tool and the functionality it offers those looking to migrate from BizTalk to Azure.

Title: BizTalk Migrator is released! A run through the codebase and repos

Presenters: Dan Probert (CTO, Affinus), Andrew Rivers (Director, 345 Technology)

About the webinar

As you know – we’ve been following the BizTalk Migrator ever since the private preview was announced at Integrate in May 2020.  Microsoft have now announced the release of the tool.

The good news is…the wait is finally over!  Following hot on the heels of the BizTalk Migrator’s launch we’re going to take you through the code that makes the BizTalk Migrator tick.

We will hop over to GitHub and show you where the code lives, then we’ll explain the bits you’re likely to need the most if you’re looking to improve or extend the tool.

We’ll cover off the following:

  • Open source repos
  • What each repo is for
  • How to extend or update the tool
  • How to debug and test your own changes
  • How to contribute a fix to the project
