  1. Topology Viewer

    By topology view I meant a visualisation of the data flow and components within the application, i.e. from receive locations to orchestrations to send ports -- pretty much what you already have for the tracking graph, but without the message context and data and viewable for any application regardless independent of tracking.

    It would really help understanding what happens inside and application when the customer documentation is seriously lacking.

  2. Customization of alerts

    Would it be possible to adjust/customize the alerts, say

    o Set email type as not URGENT when the alert is warning/UP alert
    o Set ServiceNow incident notification priority based on the warning/up/error details.

  3. Alert to event log when license is going to expire

    I saw that an error was logged to the event log when it tried to send mail, that the license had expired. Is it possible to add a verification/monitor that will log a warning to the event log that the license is about to get expired?

  4. Alerting per Suspended Instance

    The requirement is that the customer wants to receive an alert each time a message or instance got suspended. So this is a bit like an event driven approach.
    Applications
    Say you have an alert for Suspended Instances with a Warning threshold of (more than) 0 and an Error threshold of (more than) 5. This would result in getting a notification when:
    a. nothing is suspended yet and
    b. a Message or Instance got suspended
    This is because the Warning threshold is set to (more than) 0. As far as I am aware of, the next notification you would get…

  7. Application status differs in BizTalk360 vs BTS

    When trying to configure BizTalk360, we noted this difference between the application lists from BizTalk Admin Console and BizTalk360.

    It seems like any application without receive locations, ports, or orchestrations will show as Not Applicable status in 360, when the same application is Started in admin console (The reason for these applications being started is because their MSI installation packages contains BRE rules, and the MSI installation will start them when deploying these)

  8. Email escalation policy

    If there are many cascading failures but what I am looking for is something that would either send out a reminder some time later if the system stays down for an extended period or escalate the alert if the recipient doesn't address the problem or is away on vacation.

  13. UP alerts beyond the restricted time in Threshold alert

    As we have some of the alerts running only office hours (8am-5pm) we sometimes note the following scenario:


    1.  An error occurs at 3 pm.
      

    2.  An alert email DOWN is sent out to ICC and on-call personnel immediately.
      

    3.  The error is fixed 6 pm.
      

    4.  No UP email is sent to ICC and on-call personnel due to the 8-5 limit.
      

    Somehow it would feel more safe to receive the UP email, even if the schedule should not be active at that time. The way it is today, we that receive the alerts are "supposed to have knowledge" of the schedules on every…

  14. Application mapping for all artifacts in one go

    Would like to set up the mappings for BizTalk360 alarms to enable the monitoring for all receive/send/orchestrations/service monitoring for all applications in one go.

    At the minute we need to go through the apps one at a time (example there are 83 application) turning it on but it would be much easier if there is a click option "enable all" and then go through and turn off or amend as required if i see things flag up as red.

  16. Find Applications with NO alarm

    Find Applications with NO alarm.
    How can you verify alarms being set on all applications?
    As is there is no way to do this. I want a feature that I can see Applications not mapped to a specific alarm. As you do have the list of all applications and you do have the list of all alarms - it is not very hard to implement this feature

  17. Database file utilization

    We have had a few outages lately because the BizTalkMsgBoxDb and the BizTalkDTADb log files have grown out of control and filled up the entire disk. I am not sure if this is possible given the permissions available to the application but it would be really nice if the database file and log file utilization was monitored either for rapid expansion or percentage of disk space so an alarm can go off before everything hits critical levels. Alternatively it could look for long running non-committed transactions that could send the log file spiraling out of control.

  18. Proactive Biztalk operations helped with an alarm definition

    Would like to operate Biztalk Applications (Start and stop ports or hosts) with an indicator that will say if the artefact should be stopped or started.

    This informations is available in the monitoring dashboard but is not available while we are operating Biztalk.
    This could be done by addind a view of a existing alarm while we use the "Application Support panel" and "Infrastructure Setting panel".

    This will be usefull to our helpdesk to operate Biztalk without hesitation and will simplify our instructions to the helpdesk when a problem occurred or while we implement new or updated Biztalk Applications.
    It's…

  19. Alarm mapping

    Alarm mapping. I would like to see a template that you can apply for all Applications.

    If you have an general alarm it must be easier to apply this alarm to all Applications instead of manually stepping into the application iteslf and mapp the alarm as you have to at the moment.

    In my case we have 8 general alarms that I want to assign to all our Applications (currently 95) so you quicly realize the tedious task of doing it this way.

  20. Querying Management Database and pin it to Custom Dashboard

    Currently we have ability to query the Message box database , it would be nice if we are able to query Management Database for viewing the list of Receive location/Send port changes Through BizTalk 360 to keep a track of all changes in one screen and pin that to custom Dashboard
