  1. 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?

  3. 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

  4. ESB filter options- Improvement

    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'

    This feature has come as part of the version 8.9.5 release. Sing up to our newsletter to be notified of upcoming releases

    1. Filtering is enabled for Scope
    2. Now Exception Stack Trace has ‘Contains’ operator for filtering

    Remaining items are in our development pipeline

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. Monitoring alert content improvements

    We have done a DR test on our biztalk environment and we received the alert stating “Monitor Error” . When The server XXXX was down during this alert, I expect the alert to say something more alarming like “SERVER DOWN” instead of “Monitor Error”.

  8. 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

  9. Monitoring dashboard improvements on green /red lights

    The test was to stop IIS. Simulation of web server crash, malfunction or network error. We performed an IIS Stop service only. No stop of biztalk360 service.

    The results: The client browsers keep having the service status green flashing light at top right corner of the Dashboard monitoring portal. And the monitoring icon on the top left turned red saying that the service monitoring service is stopped (which is wrong).

    So, on the upper left (blue left panel with the menu), that a red light appeared beside the icons monitoring and analytics. The red light beside monitoring is saying that…

  10. Data monitoring with arbitrary interval

    I've been informed by BizTalk 360 support that BizTalk 360 currently does not support data monitoring with arbitrary interval, say 7.5 days(180 hours). It would be nice to have this enhancement.

  11. 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.

  12. Permissions to control if a user can do 'Terminate instance'

    The ability to do 'Terminate' on an instance should be controlled by permissions to make sure that not all users can do this. The consequences of terminating an instance which has ordered delivery enabled on it can be severe since all the messages 'in queue' are deleted when the instance is terminated. Some users should be able to do 'Resume' without have the rigts to do 'Terminate'

  13. 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.

  14. Data monitoring could not ended at midnight

    It is not possible to end a data process monitoring at 12h00am (midnight). Let say we want to monitor 7h00pm until 12h00am, the web interface got an error: "The end time should be atleast 15 mins later than the start time.". We have to set 23h45 or 00:15. So it is impossible to get a result at 12h00am.
    If we set 23h45, we don't have the last 15 minutes of the day included in the monitoring. If we set 00h15, the first 15 minutes of the new day is part of the new day, not the last day.
    So our…

  15. 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…

  17. "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…

  18. Add Word Wrap/Formatting to Message Details

    Messages can be very large, so it's difficult to read them on the same line. We end up downloading them and reformatting them in VS or notepad++... Would be nice to be able to do that directly in 360...

  19. Larger Fault Description Textbox

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

  20. Rename OPS Dashboard

    As per title - currently this is possible by hacking the database table b360_admin_UserProfile_Dashboards, but that might not be an option in certain environments... :)
