  1. Ability to "Find the Failed Messsage" (As per Biztalk Administration capabilities)

    Within Biztalk Administration Console, when viewing a suspended instance you can right click and "Find Failed Message" This is key to us as often we need to remove the failed message and resume the rest in the queue. (Terminate kills all messages and resume just resends the same failed one, resulting in them being suspended again)

        • 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.

            • Viewing Subscriptions of Orchestrations and Send Ports

              For analysis I regularly query the Subscriptions for Orchestrations and/or Send Ports. Unfortunately this is not possible with BizTalk360, so I would like to have that capability in BizTalk360.

              • View Hydrated Orchestrations

                In BizTalk Admin Console you have the option to view all Dehydrated Orchestrations directly from the group overview.
                That was a quick way to view all dehydrated orchestrations and would be helpfull in BizTalk360 as well.
                BizTalk 360:
                In BizTalk360 you an see the dehydrated orchestrations in the Mssagebox queries or in the grafhical flow but is not posible to view only the dehydrated orchestrations. In some cases that should be very helpfull.

                In the messagebox queries it is not posible to choose Dehydrated.
                In the Graphical Flow you can add a filter on state but it is not posible…

                  Currently Via BizTalk 360 its not possible to drill down, to get example the XML message or look at the details. It only gives an Overview.

                  • Saving Tracked messages

                    From time to time I need to save Tracked messages. When the messages are small, it is easy to select and copy the XML of those messages in the Graphical Flow module. But in case messages are larger than a couple KB's, it is tough to impossible (msgs over 50000 chars got truncated) to select and copy that XML.

                    For that reason I would like to have a button to be able to save Tracked messages.

                    • Having the Orchestration Debugger in BizTalk360

                      For analysis purposes I often use the Orchestration Debugger from the Administration Console. Unfortunately this is not available in BizTalk360, so I would like to have that functionality, so I'm not forced to connect to the Admin Console.

                      • Widget to display the flow performances in the Analytics DashBoard

                        When pinning a Flow in the Analytics DashBoard, it could be very good to have a graph with the performances of the flow (average response time, number of messages, ...) like the graphs displayed in front of the flow in the Analytics web pages.

                              Adding ability to configure folders where important log files (like IIS, Log4Net, Custom etc) are present in the server and ability to view them directly in the BizTalk360 web interface. This will avoid people logging into the server or setting up user rights for each individual users in the server.

                                    In some cases you may be using columns with long text and it's difficult to view it in the table/grid result view. It will be useful if you can have a detail view, where the user can click on a particular row, which then opens a window or blade and show all the content.

                                      When restarting many Artifacts (Ports or Host Instances) the Expected State should be clearly visible in order to avoid wrong manipulation (for instance: restarting a port which should remain stopped).
                                      Also, the Application or Artifcat should be Red only if an artifact is not in the Expected State, not if an artifact is stopped (which could be the Expected State).

                                        We plan to improve the usability where users can view the additional properties information simply by clicking the row in the grid (as in the EDI page), rather than having to click the properties icon.
