  1. Restrict access to message content for Tech Support on Application (integration) level

    We need to protect message content from Biztalk technical support (outsourced) in about 50 of 500 Biztalk applications.
    Access will be necessery in 450 applications (integrations) for error handling, but for 50 the payload cannot be viewed due to export control regulations.
    Now it's just possible to restrict access to all or nothing regarding message content,.

    • BizTalk Best Practices Analyser

      It would be good if BizTalk360 was integrated with the BizTalk Best Practices Analyser:
      https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=43382&751be11f-ede8-5a0c-058c-2ee190a24fa6=True
      - Schedule the running of scans.
      - Store the history of scan reports (within specified purge settings).
      - Store which "best practices" you want to ignore (with a justification specified).
      - Alert if any "best practices" fail following a scheduled scan (that you don't want to ignore).

      • Stop IIS from the Operation part

        Hi,
        It could be good to have the ability to stop / restart IIS application pools at the same place where we can stop/start host instances.

        • Link in error information

          When you have a suspended message and go into:
          "Service Properties -> Error Information"
          in order to see the error message.
          It would be handy if the path to a server /folder could be a clickable link in the "Error Description"

            • Monitoring for Always On Instances

              With BizTalk 2016 you have the possibility to configure the DB with Always On. Because of MSDTC you have to create at least 4 instances and to create the BizTalk Db in these instances. At the moment in BizTalk360 you can only monitor 2, this should be now changed to allow a better control of all bts DB.

              • Alert for wrong startup type from NT-Service

                In the NT-Service monitoring I would like the option to make an alert for the startup-type. So we can quickly discover a wrong startup type.

                  We want to give key-users update-access to some Cross Reference tables without learning them writing SQL queries. If Biztalk360 could provide us forms for updating data in Xref tables.

                  • Remove orphaned for BizTalk Servers and SQL Servers monitoring

                    Hi,
                    When we import an alarm from one environment to another, there are sometimes orphaned artefacts.
                    You already have a button "Remove orphaned" in Applications (for send ports, receive locations,..) but this feature does not exist for Disk and System Resources when monitoring BizTalk and SQL Servers.

                    • Mass remove orphaned feature

                      Hi,
                      When we monitor a lot of artefacts and after an import of an alarm exported from another environment, we have sometimes a lot of orphaned items.
                      It could be very helpful to have, in the import process, a way to remove all orphaned at the same time. Otherwise, we need to go into each application, go on send ports/receive ports/orchestrations, ...

                      • Manually start a Health Check alarm

                        Hi,
                        When we configure a new alarm (for Health Check), it is not possible to force the alarm to execute immediately. It could be great to have this ability in order to avoid waiting for the next scheduled interval.

                        • Allow "Is In Range" option for EventId filter in Advanced Event Viewer

                          This would allow us to get the logs of a specific application when all applications have a predefined range of EventIds.

                          Also, we would need to be able to enter the EventIds as free text instead of a combo box.

                          • Web Endpoint monitoring - polling interval

                            Hi,
                            For the Web endpoint monitoring, it could be great to have the ability to add a polling interval to poll less than each 60 secondes.

                            • Syncronisation of applications endpoints with BizTalk360 monitoring alerts

                              It would be great is the BizTalk360 application was able to keep in sync with the endpoints within an application - as seen in the BizTalk admin console. Presently, if any changes are made to the BizTalk applications endpoints the BizTalk360 alert has to be reconfigured to match the changes - this is generally overlooked until the email alert comes through and shows an error.

                                    We plan to expose a receive location in BizTalk for systems to send us a message if they have failed to process a message.

                                    What we would like is some kind of backlog in BizTalk360 to store these messages and assign \ alert administrators of the master system.

                                      • 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.

                                          Hi,
                                          In the Analytics graphs, where I have the "count" of messages in a particular time frame, it could be interested to have the ability to understand what are the types of messages that were processed during this time frame.
                                          Because sometimes it is very interested to identify which particular flow is the most used during a peak.
