TMS overview

BizTalk Server TMS is a service that refreshes the Office 365 OAuth tokens used by BizTalk. It refreshes these tokens periodically, ensuring that the tokens always remain valid. It has a dependency on Enterprise Single Sign On service (ENT SSO), and must be installed on a computer that hosts the master secret server.

Install BizTalk Server TMS

  1. Install Feature Pack 3.
  2. In \Program Files (x86)\Microsoft BizTalk Server <your version>, run BizTalkTMS.msi.
  3. Enter the username and password of a user that's a member of the SSO Administrators group.
