How to Stop a Send Port or Send Port Group

This topic describes how to use the BizTalk Server Administration console to stop a send port or send port group. When you stop a send port or send port group, it no longer processes messages. BizTalk Server suspends all activation messages to a stopped send port or send port group. Stopping a send port group does not affect the state of any send ports that it contains.


By default, starting a BizTalk application starts all of the artifacts that it contains. For more information, see How to Start and Stop a BizTalk Application.


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