  1. Auto-correct email improvements

    Autocorrect feature works correctly but the auto correction email message displays “Critical” status in the summary. The summary message should display the final correction status along with prior status.

    Also, the auto correction fix message displays under the “Issues of application name”. There should be new paragraph saying “Issues fixed:”

    • monitoring of service instances that are in this state for longer than set period of time

      Would like to know how to monitor running services instances for duration > x minutes. I can see how to monitor by count, but not by duration.

      We occasionally see the case where many different service instances are in a running state for an extended period of time (not by design). The issue generally turns out being at the platform level (ie. resource contention on the servers causing multiple hosts to throttle or just hang).

      We will work on tuning the hosts, and addressing these types of issues. In the meantime, however, we would like to have awareness when any…

        • Customizing grids in Message Box Queries

          We have the following situation at our Customer LichtBlick SE. The customer resumes messages based on the URI. So they must know what is the end system to decide if the message will be resumed or not. That works well. But now we are implementing a FIFO pattern with ODX possibilities so if a ODX breaks this will be suspended and all messages too. But we do not see the URI on the suspended messages even if we set transport location and transport type in the context. So our customer cannot decide which messages shall be resumed. If there a…

          • 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).

            • 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…

                  • 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?

                      • 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

                        • 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…

                          • 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.

                              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

                                • 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.

                                  • 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…

                                    • 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.

                                      • Graphical message flow (tracking) link to messaging pattern

                                        In the Graphical Message flow (Tracking), if a related messaging pattern exists, it could be good to have a link to it so to see the KPIs.

                                          Hi,
                                          When given the error code as "N/A" while adding the KB article, it is saving without any issues but not working when you click to retrieve it because of the url breakage with N/A
