BizTalk WCF-SQL Error: BtsActionMapping “was not understood”

PROCEDURE (What I did to cause the error):

1) Use the adapter wizard to generate a schema and custom bindings for a SQL stored proc
2) Created an orchestration of my own, and then tried to call the stored prod with a two-way (request/response) send port.

The ERROR that I received:

<code>The adapter failed to transmit message going to send port “Send_Extract_EFSR_Aggregate_For_AA_Departure_WCF_Custom” with URL “mssql://mySqlServer//MyDatabaseName?”. It will be retransmitted after the retry interval specified for this Send Port. Details:”Microsoft.ServiceModel.Channels.Common.UnsupportedOperationException: The action “<BtsActionMapping xmlns:xsi=”” xmlns:xsd=””>
<Operation Name=”My_SProc_Name” Action=”TypedProcedure/dbo/My_SProc_Name” />
</BtsActionMapping>” was not understood.</code>

The two SOLUTIONs:

1) When you create a send port in an orchestration, by default the Operation name is “Operation-1”.
2) You have two choices to fix:
a) Change the “Operation Name” in the “Action” to “Operation_1″ like this:

<code><BtsActionMapping xmlns:xsi=”” xmlns:xsd=””>
<Operation Name=”Operation_1″ Action=”TypedProcedure/dbo/Extract_EFSR_Aggregate” />

(No redeploy required in this case.)

b) Go to the orchestration, and change the Operation on the send port from “Operation_1” to “My_SProc_Name” (i.e. whatever your stored proc name is).
Then rebuild and redeploy (or at least rebuild and re-GAC your orchestration).


NOTE: Be sure to restart the host instances of the Orchestration and SendPorts if you redeploy the orchestration.
