  1. Restrict alarms by user group

    When defining alarms it should be possible to separate alarms by "user group". Essentially we will be sharing access to BT360 with our client and we would like them to be able to create their own alarms for their applications. However we don't want them to be able to edit (or delete) our alarms. It should be possible to separate alarms by user group.

    • Graphical representation of maps

      Currently, you can search on Artifacts in BizTalk 360, including maps and schema's. When you search for schema's for instance, you can see the schema itself by selecting schema viewer.
      In case of a map, it would be useful to see a graphical representation of the map, like BizTalk Documenter.

      • Send notifications to only custom channel and not to email

        When integrating BizTalk360 with another system using the custom notification channel feature, it's still mandatory to input email id in the Basic Details section. We would like to suggest making the email id optional if you're using notification channels. When integrating with a ticketing system for example, you will often be using the ticketing system's own email notification system and would not need for BizTalk360 to send emails as well. Or you might not want to use emails at all and rely on other notifications.

          • BizTalk Maintenance Schedule

            I think it would be valuable, from an administrative point of view, to have some sort of to-do/calendar/schedule for maintenance tasks - perhaps with reminders?

            As an admin sometimes i lose track of which environment needs which CU, which needs OS patches, which needs sql maintenance, etc.

            Would be awesome if somewhere i could set up reminders on a calendar and get email alerts or notifications that there is maintenance coming up so i could schedule.

              • Messaging latency SLA monitoring / alerting

                Making extended use of the captured Messaging Performance analytics data, it would be good to be able to set a performance SLA for messaging through BizTalk. If the latency of a specific data interchange drops below the SLA threshold then raise an alert for investigation.

                • Web Endpoint Monitoring Improvement

                  WebEndpoint Monitoring features are enhanced in the new version, but the old good feature was discontinued.

                  Old Feature : Web Endpoint Configuration used to show the actual code and expected return code, so that user will know what is the expected and what is the actual. This was useful in the support issues where user had flexibility to stop the alert by making the expected code equal to the actual code.

                  New feature doesnt have that flexibility. This results in removal of endpoint (As we cant disable it) everytime the error occurs.

                  • Create & Save Custom User Access Template

                    It would be excellent to be able to save a customised user access profile as a new template so to make it easier to grant multiple users similar security profiles. i realise you can do this by applying a profile to a group account, but that doesn't allow you to make minor changes to each individual user within the group.

                        • Maintenance Windows

                          This is to request an enhancement within a future version of BizTalk360 with the “Stop Alerts for Maintenance” feature.  Currently you can set a single maintenance period.  It would be great if you could create multiple maintenance periods, and then also be able to edit and/or delete each one from a list at a later point.  Once I add a maintenance period, if it was entered into a list of maintenance periods on the screen that I could then review and click to edit or delete, this would provide great functionality.  In addition, if I could also view maintenance periods…

                            During installation of new BT360 versions, I found that the MSI overwrites the service (and related) configuration files without warning. Can the MSI / installer be modified to prompt the user to either save the configuration files (services, logging, etc.) somewhere or at least inform the user that the files will be overwritten?

                                In the current version (8.2), the Monitoring Dashboard only displays one alarm at a time. In an organisation that configures many alarms, this means they can't see an overview in one screen of all mappings - unless they include an additional alarm that includes everything, which would cause duplicate emails, etc. Pretty sure that older versions of BizTalk360 included a consolidated view(?)

                                      • When copying an alarm, allow the copy of the mappings aswell.

                                        As per description. The purpose being to leverage the copy function without the need to go through the whole process again where existing alarm mappings may already represent the main or whole mapping requirements.

                                        • Allow the creation of Alarm Mapping templates used in by alarms (instanced or referenced)

                                          As per title and other suggestions.

                                          Allow a mapping template to be created and named. These templates would be 'masters'. Then when creating alarms allow a template to be selected and instanced into the alarm or copied to a version and the versioned copy referenced by one or more alarms. Obviously if a template is copied version is referenced by multiple alarms dependencies would need to be displayed or alerted if changes were made to the referenced mappings for example.

                                          I could go on but the idea is there ...
