A receive location is the configuration of a single end point to receive the incoming messages into BizTalk server. The receive location contains the configuration information for receive adapters and pipelines. The receive location is one of the main run-time artifact of the BizTalk applications. The support person's responsibility is to monitor whether the receive location(s) is/are in a healthy state. Accidentally, if any of the receive locations are in the disabled state, the message flow into the BizTalk server will be disrupted and this will affect the business process of the organization.

The user can click on the Receive Locations tab of the application that will list all the receive locations in the application, and perform operations such as Enabling/Disabling the receive locations.

The usability of the receive locations section is identical to the receive ports section; the only difference is that there will not be any receive port and hierarchical grouping information.
Super Users will have the privileges to perform operations on the applications and its associated artifacts. However, for normal users, they need to have permissions to be able to operate on applications/artifacts. Super users need to enable the "Can Operation On Application" check box under Permissions screen to allow normal users to be able to perform operations on applications and associated artifacts.
