  1. BizTalk Best Practices Analyser

    It would be good if BizTalk360 was integrated with the BizTalk Best Practices Analyser:

    - Schedule the running of scans.
    - Store the history of scan reports (within specified purge settings).
    - Store which "best practices" you want to ignore (with a justification specified).
    - Alert if any "best practices" fail following a scheduled scan (that you don't want to ignore).

    • Redesign monitoring dashboard

      The monitoring dashboard does not scale properly. When you use threshold monitoring in collapsed view, only the top part of the dashboard scales.

      The bottom part, which lists the applications you want to monitor, does not scale, resulting in scroll bars and applications which are not visible in the dashboard because they won't fit on screen..

      • Allow for monitoring of 3 or more SQL instances, or include disk monitoring of BT instance by default

        Allow for monitoring of 3 or more SQL instances, or include disk monitoring of BT instance by default.

        By Default you can't Monitor the BT Instance Disks (Monitoring> SQLServer Instances > BT Instance Name)

        So you have to add it to Settings > Monitoring and Notification > SQL Servers for Monitoring

        This only gives you a maximum of two

        We have 3 SQL Instances relating to the BizTalk Environment including the BT one, so we have to choose to not monitor one of them.

        • Editing properties of multiple alarms at the same time

          From time to time we need to edit properties like email ids for multiple alarms. Currently you have to open each alarm and make the necessary edits. It would be great to be able to select multiple alarms and make the edits at once.

          • BizTalk 360 to disable Send port /Receive location on certain day.

            I am looking for is not an alarm to tell me that something is down, but rather have something in BizTalk 360 to stop or disable a send port and or a receive location on a certain day, let’s say Wednesdays from 3am to 6am.

            • Dashboard for support people- read only

              I would like to request a feature to create a dashboard for Servicedesk/Large monitors.
              This should be a read-only full-screen view for 'on the wall' monitors for a Servicedesk/Monitoring group

              • "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

                • 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

                  • Option to read issues from your coworkers and respond to those issues.

                    This motion is also for the BizTalk360 support site.
                    It should be nice if you could read and respond to issues reported by your coworkers, or even the option to change the ownership to your coworker if you are going on a holiday or if you leave the company.

                    To avoid unwished responses from everyone there should be an option to add certain people you know. So the owner or reporter still can controll who can read an issue and who can respond to an issue.

                    • Maintenance window Scheduling

                      Allow for a tickbox so you can setup maintenance on all environments at same time, rather than making multiple entries.

                      • Add re-occurring maintenance window options and a section to view scheduled windows

                        With version 8.8 we now have the ability to schedule multiple maintenance windows in the future. Thank you very much!

                        Can we add the ability to schedule maintenance window re-occurrence. Including a way to view and modify them.

                        If possible it would be nice if we could or schedule skipping an occurrence or simply temporarily disable and re-enable it later, rather than having to delete and recreate.

                          We want to monitor a receive port/location where we receive a file once a month but we do not know the exact day it will be sent.

                          What we want is by the end of the month to send a notification if the file was not received during the month.

                          • One single view for all artefacts set to autocorrect

                            Currently there is no place to see, at the same time, all artefacts that are set to autocorrect.

                            In BizTalk360 there needs to be one single view showing a live view of all artefacts that will autocorrect if they are down.

                            In this view, at least the following should show:
                            - Current retries and other per artefact settings related to autocorrect.
                            - Each artefact should have a link to the alarm view of the application.
                            - Each artefact should have a link to the operations view of the application.
                            - It should be possible to group artefacts in the view;…

Recently we had an issue where a Windows Update caused one of our BizTalk Applications to fail. Once the problematic update(s) were found and removed. The BizTalk Application started working again.

                                    How do we import\export application bindings with Biztalk360?

                                    This is a core BizTalk functionality often used by BizTalk developers, thus is expected by your customers be integrated in your product as a default.

                                    • Restrict access to message content for Tech Support on Application (integration) level

                                      We need to protect message content from Biztalk technical support (outsourced) in about 50 of 500 Biztalk applications.
                                      Access will be necessery in 450 applications (integrations) for error handling, but for 50 the payload cannot be viewed due to export control regulations.
                                      Now it's just possible to restrict access to all or nothing regarding message content,.

                                      • Disable Analytics graphs auto-refresh

                                        Hi,
                                        In the Analytics dashboard, is it possible to add the ability to disable the auto-refresh. For example, when we are using the zoom in the graph, if it is refreshed automatically, then we loose the current zoom.

                                        • BAM Module - 10,000 rows export to Excel

                                          Export to Excel only exports a maximum of 1000 rows.
                                          We need many more than 1000 rows.
                                          Had this worked, we could have used Excel filters and widths instead.
                                          Suggestion : Add 10,000 rows to drop down box.
