  1. Remove orphaned for BizTalk Servers and SQL Servers monitoring

    Hi,
    When we import an alarm from one environment to another, there are sometimes orphaned artefacts.
    You already have a button "Remove orphaned" in Applications (for send ports, receive locations,..) but this feature does not exist for Disk and System Resources when monitoring BizTalk and SQL Servers.

    • Mass remove orphaned feature

      Hi,
      When we monitor a lot of artefacts and after an import of an alarm exported from another environment, we have sometimes a lot of orphaned items.
      It could be very helpful to have, in the import process, a way to remove all orphaned at the same time. Otherwise, we need to go into each application, go on send ports/receive ports/orchestrations, ...

      • Filter, search for File/FTP counter site

        We have now this nice "Alarms - File Location" page. If you have a lot of File ports it is difficult to select the correct one, would be nice to have query option base on application or file port name

          When you export event log entries in the advanced event viewer, you don't get the message payload of the events, which is where the really useful information almost always is. Please add the message body of the event log message to the excel export

          • File, sFTP Adapter count also for other domain user

            File, sFTP Adapter count also for other domain user.

            If on the file adapter you have credential active, the file count functionality can only be setup if the user id belowngs to the maschine domain. If the user is from an other domain, it is not possible to configure it. This should be added.

            • Web Endpoint monitoring - polling interval

              Hi,
              For the Web endpoint monitoring, it could be great to have the ability to add a polling interval to poll less than each 60 secondes.

              • Web Endpoint - need more details when a endpoint failed

                Hi,
                In the WebEndpoint monitoring feature, I tried to call a web service by using a Payload and several headers. Unfortunately I missed something in the header (SoapAction) and it failed.
                I was not able to have the details of the error without going to the log file in the server itself. This is not very convenient.
                It should be better to have a trace of the issue in the web portal it self (or to be able to read log files from the web site).

                • Syncronisation of applications endpoints with BizTalk360 monitoring alerts

                  It would be great is the BizTalk360 application was able to keep in sync with the endpoints within an application - as seen in the BizTalk admin console. Presently, if any changes are made to the BizTalk applications endpoints the BizTalk360 alert has to be reconfigured to match the changes - this is generally overlooked until the email alert comes through and shows an error.

                      • Allow "Is In Range" option for EventId filter in Advanced Event Viewer

                        This would allow us to get the logs of a specific application when all applications have a predefined range of EventIds.

                        Also, we would need to be able to enter the EventIds as free text instead of a combo box.

                              Hi,
                              It could be very useful to have, in front of each application resource, the date/time of the last update (field dtLastModified of the bts_assembly table).

                                  When defining alarms it should be possible to separate alarms by "user group". Essentially we will be sharing access to BT360 with our client and we would like them to be able to create their own alarms for their applications. However we don't want them to be able to edit (or delete) our alarms. It should be possible to separate alarms by user group.

                                    Allow the custom notification channel assembly to load from the GAC, possibly with a checkbox and this could be another option to loading from the database. Updating an existing custom channel does not work properly and this could help to solve the issue. It would be MUCH easier to install (or re-install) a custom DLL to the GAC and restart the service as needed.

                                    • Add XML Support for Export/Import (Alarms)

                                      The settings exports such as Alarms allow only JSON as an export format. Although the format is convenient for web sites and browser applications, it is not as convenient to read and query in text editors. PowerShell querying (Convert-FromJson) seems to be useful to read the exported JSON data, but I request that you add XML support for import/export of settings. Being able to query the settings is important when any bulk changes to alarms are required or when migrating alarms between environments.

                                        I think it would be valuable, from an administrative point of view, to have some sort of to-do/calendar/schedule for maintenance tasks - perhaps with reminders?

                                        As an admin sometimes i lose track of which environment needs which CU, which needs OS patches, which needs sql maintenance, etc.

                                        Would be awesome if somewhere i could set up reminders on a calendar and get email alerts or notifications that there is maintenance coming up so i could schedule.

                                        • Backlog of Messaging Replay Requirements

                                          We plan to expose a receive location in BizTalk for systems to send us a message if they have failed to process a message.

                                          What we would like is some kind of backlog in BizTalk360 to store these messages and assign \ alert administrators of the master system.

                                          Whilst the ESB Exception Management Portal fields could be rigged to support this, a dedicated set of fields\functions would be better:
                                          • Assigned to Team
                                          • Data Type
                                          • Record Identifier
                                          • Error Message(s)
