How to Add a Send Port to a Send Port Group

This topic describes how to use the BizTalk Server Administration console to add one or more send ports to a send port group. You can only add one-way static send ports to a send port group.

You can add a send port that exists in a different application. If you do this, you must add a reference from the application containing the send port group to the application containing the send port. For instructions, see How to Add a Reference to Another Application.


To perform the procedure in this topic, you must be logged on with an account that is a member of the BizTalk Server Administrators group. For more detailed information on permissions, see Permissions Required for Deploying and Managing a BizTalk Application.
