Enterprise Single Sign-on Service (SSO) as a configuration store (I)

If we want store our BizTalk application configuration in SSO, first we have to create our affilitiate application with an XML similar to this:

<application name="My Application">
<description>My application description</description>
<appAdminAccount>BizTalk Server Administrators</appAdminAccount>
<appUserAccount>BizTalk Application Users</appUserAccount>
<field ordinal="0" label="reserved" masked="no"/>
<field ordinal="1" label="db.passwd" masked="yes" value="passwd" />
<field ordinal="2" label="db.conn.string" masked="yes" value="Data Source=localhost;Initial Catalog=MyDb;Integrated Security=True" />
<flags configStoreApp="yes" allowLocalAccounts="yes" enableApp="yes" />

For more information about each field in this xml go to

Then we have to insert this application into SSO with this executable "%root%\Program Files\Common Files\Enterprise Single Sign-On\ssomanage.exe". Sintaxis to create an application is:
ssomanage.exe -createapps <previous xml document path>, for example:
ssomanage.exe -createapps myssoappconfiguration.xml.
