BizTalk party name lookup by alias

BizTalk party name lookup by alias

BizTalk party name lookup by alias

I have an incoming XML document that contains an external application's customer numeric ID. I am planning on setting up the numberic ID as an ALIAS name to the party; the value itself is not suitable as the primary (organization) name for the trading partner. That is fine for setting the partner's dynamic port for routing, since the party can be specified with any available alias.
The problem is with the TPPubWS GetParameterValue call to retrieve policy parameters. The call requires the 'organization' or party name. In my case this is unavailable in the incoming document. Is there a way of looking up the organization name using another alias value?
I can use an external map. Alternatively, since the mapping is already available in the biztalk management database, I can query the management database directly. However, I would much prefer to do this through BizTalk API, but I can't find anything that fits. Any suggestions?
