  1. 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.

    • Ability to Stop, Start, and Auto Correct Send Port Groups

      We have applications that have Send Port Groups and we will not be able to fully stop or start the application within BizTalk 360 if we do not have this functionality. It would also be nice to be able to Auto Correct Send Port Groups.

      • View MDN message in AS2 log

        NRR enabled for outbound MDN" and "NRR enabled for inbound MDN" options enabled in AS2 agreement configuration in parties profile. We can view the associated MDN message by right-click on a AS2/MDN Status record in BizTalk Admin Console. However they cannot view MDN message in BizTalk360

        If possible, please also enable the feature to “view message decoded/encoded format” which is an available option in the same property dropdown list as “View Mdn Message” if NRR is enabled in AS2 agreement with the party.

        • 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... :)

              • Data Monitoring File Size

                Would be nice to add additional Filter possibility, not only based on the number of file received, but also on the file size. At a customer site we have a WS Request that sometimes receives a wrong response. This response is much more smaler than the expected. Would be nice if I could configure an alarm if the file size is below a kb value.

                    • Additional File Monitoring conditions test if recieved within certain time

                      I would like additional condition types added that would allow for more complex rules around time. I would like I way to get an alert if a file hasn't been received within the past minutes, hours, and days. This is important because the sender systems are supposed to send files in specific intervals and we need to be alerted iif we haven't received a file within certain time window parameters.

                              We are encountering some memory issue in general usage of BizTalk 2013 on the server.
                              however in order to determine which of the application or host instances is causing the issue, I would like to have a analytic graph showing the memory usage per Host Instance or for all available host instance.
                              Currently you will see only the memory usages per CPU (graph 'BizTalk Host Performance')with a maximum of 5 hosts.

                                Paging for suspended messages is broken.

                                Version 8.8.2116.2405

                                I have 68 suspended messages from friday afternoon.
                                When I go take a look at them only the 10 first messages are shown.
                                Arrows/Paging does not work.

                                Changing 10/25/50/100 (filter) does not work.

                                When you click on suspended messages on dashboard you are sent to "Data Access/ Message Box (Queries)

                                The default setting for the SQL-expression is 10 making paging useless unless you go and change original expresson first.

                                Only after that will the paging work.

                                I think it would be best if paging-setting (default or in user profile) would be much…

                                • Paging on Applications is a good and bad idea

                                  Paging is good and bad. Good for server load, keeping the list short and manageable - but Export to Excel seems more broken with this feature

                                  I do export the list to Excel and print it out and hang it on my whiteboard
                                  With a proper description on each application it is very easy to see what each application does.

                                  Please add the option to save entire list of application to excel rather than the paginated list.

                                  • Outage Management integration for Artifacts.

                                    We can group artifacts to support an outage. For example we can support an outage to an email system by grouping Artifacts that are pointed to that system and then click a "button" to disable all the send/receive ports pointing to that system. It integrates through SCOM using an API to but those same porting in maintenance mode, also.

                                    • Enhancements to "ESB Exceptions Data" functionality

                                      Display Field in table:
                                      - RootNode
                                      - ActionType ~ Filter our faults that have an ActionType (i.e. they have been actioned). This should be the default query value.

                                      Filter data by:
                                      - Service Name
                                      - Root Node

                                      ActionTypes
                                      - I would like in BizTalk360 is to be able to manage the ActionType options in the "[EsbExceptionDb].[dbo].[ActionType]" table. Users can then select the action to apply to selected fault(s) with all actions audited. For example, I would like the following action types:
                                      * "Resubmitted from Source System"
                                      * "Resubmitted from Archive"
                                      * "Resubmit not required"
                                      * "Resubmitted from Portal" ~ renamed…

                                      • Schedule Disable & Enable back Receive Locations of BizTalk application.

                                        We have a scenario where we need to schedule to Disable & Enable back Receive Locations of BizTalk application, and this has to be done After Hours every month during the monthly Server maintenance nights.

                                        Currently we are doing this manually where we disable Receive Locations at 5pm and then Enable it back at 10pm.

                                        So before the server maintenance window begins, we Disable the Receive locations. By doing this, the various LOB systems hold and queue up the events they need to push to BizTalk within their own systems until this service window. After the maintenance window is closed,…

                                        • Data Monitoing monthly schedule

                                          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.
