This article intends to show how data can be tracked using Admin Console, resulting from this forum question.


Introduction

Tracking helps in tracking data which can help in analysis, report generation, troubleshooting, etc. Tracking  can be applied on both types of messages: the incoming message and the message leaving BizTalk. Data, which can be tracked, are message body, message properties, message ID, start time of events, stop time of events, etc.
