  1. Improve filter options in Data monitoring screen under "SET DATA FILTER"

    The filter options under Data Monitoring alert are very limited.
    Example: For query type 'Suspended Service Instances', the 'Add Filter' only has one condition 'Is Equal to'.
    Which means, we cannot create filters like 'Is Not Equal to'.
    This is specially important when we don't want to monitor suspended messages of specific port/application/service/host for example.

      • Alert & Email customization

        I have two feature requests for BizTalk 360:

        1) I would like to be able to include a eventlog message in the email. Furthermore I would like the email to be more configurable, e.g. using placeholders

        2) I would like to have different email templates, thereby facilitating the distribution of various messages generated by the same alert

        • A grid added to Stop Alerts for Maintenance, so you are able to view, edit, delete future maintenance schedules

          Currently you are not able to view, edit, or delete Stop Alerts for Maintenance entries. I like to be able to enter Stop Alerts in the future for upcoming maintenance windows. We need to be able to view, edit, or delete those Stop Alerts.

          • Providing KB Article on Generic Level

            Currently the KB articles can be created only for

            Service Instances
            ESB Exceptions
            Event Logs
            Throttling Data

            We need a provision to create KB article for 'General' category where we can provide KB articles for issues apart from the above 4.

            This will help the new users of BizTalk 360.

            • Support SQL cluster monitoring

              When SQL 1 server went down and SQL 2 (clustering) starts running BizTalk Server starts capturing and running. But BizTalk360 still pointing to that SQL1 sever and keep pooping the message "Disks: Configured Disk . No longer exist in the Server XXXXXXX." we expect BizTalk360 should support SQL Cluster Monitoring.

              • Customize maximum size from tracked message

                Occasionally we have an issue while saving a tracked message.
                The content is truncated while the size is more then 50.000 characters.
                We would like the opportunity to change this maximum size in the system settings.
                With the common limitation we lack some important information when the message is too big.

                • Increase the maximum number of attachments to download

                  There is a limit of 50 attachments to download in Graphical Flow (Tracking).
                  Must there be a limit?
                  I suggest that max matches will set the upper limit, but to keep the configuration so it is possible to set the limit lower for those who need it.

                    We just want to publish the query results on the dashboard in tabular format. At this point we don't yet need fancy PowerBI graphical view of this data.

                    • Support message security for resubmit

                      All our BizTalk services need to support message security (TransportWithMessageCredential to be precise). This includes any resubmit services. At the moment there is no way to specify client credentials in BizTalk360, so the suggestion is to support client credentials for message resubmission.

                      • Configure Email Ids for UP alerts

                        Currently when an alarm is created, we can enter the email ids to which the DOWN and UP alerts will be sent to. This is OK if the same recipients are targeted for both DOWN and UP alerts. However, if the alerts are sent to a support system that creates the tickets for the support team to action then we need ONLY the DOWN alerts to be sent to the support system. And configure separate email ids for the UP alerts (excluding support system) to avoid the creation of automatic tickets for UP alerts.

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                                And this would also make it much easier to add new items in your existing monitoring or to do a weekly or monthly check whether all new items are added in your application.
                                Now we have to click and reclick thousands of items if we want to check we have all items in our application monitoring. Especially when you have a lot…

                                    1.Need an filter on failure column values that currently exist in the exception fault table. So that we can setup a proactive alarm on an application.

                                    2.The only available filter expression is "is Equal To"

                                    3. Filter with an 'OR' condition on the same column. i.e. Application is Equal To 'App1' or 'App2'. You can add another filter, but then you lose the selection of 'Application" on the second filter

                                    4.There is no filtering defined for Scope
                                    5.The only filter available on Exception Stack Trace is 'Is Equal To'

                                      • Holiday exclusions for process monitoring

                                        Process Monitoring is a powerful feature, but often times when we’re monitoring receive or send ports, we need to exclude holidays. For example, if monitoring a send port to ensure at least one message is sent through it every MON-FRI (i.e. Business Day), we want to be able to exclude company holidays, such as Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving, etc. It would be great if there were a list we could maintain for holidays within BizTalk360, and then when setting up Process Monitoring we could check a box to exclude company holidays. That would make the Process Monitoring feature even more valuable.…

                                        • WebEndpoint: need more details in the notification

                                          Hi,
                                          When monitoring a Web EndPoint and in case of a failure, the email received does not contains enough details regarding the issue.
                                          The only detail we have in the email is "Expected return code 200 was not found in the response" and we don't know what is the regarding endpoint.
