  1. Filtering capabilities in Alert History

    From time to time I find myself wandering through the Alert History. At that times I often miss the capability to:

    Being able to see all records in the Alert History.
    Have filtering capabilities like we know from Message Box queries and Graphical Flow.
    Being able to show the actual mail which is being sent (I noticed this is in the database).

  2. Data Monitoring Suggestion

    I am configuring some Data Monitoring Alerts in BizTalk360 and have run into a snag. In my Test environment, we have crafted an ESB Exception for our Gibsons.FIN.Transactions BizTalk Application and have a Fault Category of ProcessCOACacheMisses. However when I am configuring this Data Monitoring alert in Production, I don’t have this Fault Category yet as it is a new application. I would imagine you are performing a DISTINCT SQL Query on the field and populating the dropdown with these values. It would be nice to override and provide my own text as now I have to wait for that…

  3. Message delay and message delay by shapes in orchestration in BizTalk360

    To implement message count, message delay and message delay by shapes in orchestration in BizTalk360? We don’t have any way to monitor how may message processed by BizTalk and where in orchestration it caused to delay.

  5. Graphics for data in the msgbox

    I have interest in the graphical representation of the (technical) flow, which I can map to a model (logical flow) that those administrators do understand.
    If an interchange completes and gets into the tracking database I have those graphics, very nice.
    But, I would also like such graphics for data in the msgbox e.g. an interchange in process waiting to continue.
    Can I visualize data still in the msgbox with BizTalk360?

  7. Analytics for longer time frames

    It would be good to be able to be able to export the analytics data. This would help in analyzing data over time. Since we can only see a months worth of data, being able to export that and then compare as time goes by would be very helpful. This is especially true as we want year over year (YOY) comparisions

  8. "Advanced Event Viewer with the filter of messages"

    About this topic "Advanced Event Viewer with the filter of messages".On the very old versions of B360, this filter was usable with the "contains" operations. So we were able to search for a specific keyword in the event logs and B360 was able to get the results. In the actual version, we only have the option "is equal to", so we have to write the exact message to get a fetch, which is impossible. Our helpdesk still request to get a direct access to the Biztalk Server to

    We want to search all messages in the event viewer that contains…

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. ESB resubmissiom improvements

    It appears from the profiler output that 360 uses hard-coded SQL for updating messages upon resubmission.
    A stored proc exists for doing this, named usp_Update_Message – ,Is this can be taken in BizTalk360

  12. BAM Aggregations

    We use BAM Aggregations to give our IT Operations Managers a summarised view of the state of the BizTalk system in terms of volumes which can be used to identify possible contention issues.

  13. Larger Fault Description Textbox

    The SQL field is 4,096 chars so a one line textbox is too small. Make it bigger or resizable

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. Show all receive locations, all send ports or all orchestrations for application monitoring in one overview

    In application monitoring I'd like to have the option to show all receive locations, all send ports or all orchestrations in one overview.

    This would make it much faster and easier to add all items in your monitoring.
    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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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. 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.
