Use this feature to forward successfully processed messages from an endpoint to a specific destination endpoint. Forwarding messages is particularly useful in complex upgrade scenarios, when the old version and new version of a particular endpoint are running side-by-side.
Auditing and Forwarding are very similar, both send a copy of the processed message to another queue. The main difference are intended usage scenarios.
Auditing is used for collecting information on what is happening in the system, therefore the audited message is enriched with additional information regarding processing of it. Forwarding would send a copy of the processed message, without the additional auditing information.
The forwarded messages do not contain the audit message headers.
ForwardReceivedMessagesToattribute in the
UnicastBusConfigconfiguration section is no longer supported starting from Version 6. Switch to the code first API when using Version 6 and above.
Individual messages can be forwarded directly from the handler if the desired behavior is not to forward all messages that were successfully processed by an endpoint:
await context.ForwardCurrentMessageTo("destinationQueue@machine") .ConfigureAwait(false);
