  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.

    • Add "Data Monitor dashboard" to a custom dashboard

      It should be possible to add "Data Monitor dashboard" to a custom dashboard. It should show the same GUI as you see when you access data monitoring dashboard except you should only see
      the alarms for the applications you has access to. then configure that page to only show alarms of interest.

      • Monitoring of Windows Server Service Bus Queues

        Hi,
        It could be great to have the ability to monitor Service Bus Queues for Windows Server and not only for Azure Service Bus.

        • Data Monitoring Rename

          Just like the suggestion for renaming alarms (http://feedback.biztalk360.com/forums/331695-biztalk360-operations/suggestions/14516568-rename-alarms) it would be a good idea to enable the possibility to rename the data monitoring, for example on process monitoring.

          • Need to create Night time monitoring

            We need to create alarms that will monitor from evening to morning next day.

            e.g we want the alarm to monitor from 17:00 PM till 09:00 AM next day. The only way is to create two alarms, however there is a gap of 00:30 min as we cannot make an alarm run till 12:00 AM only till 23:00 PM.

            • Restart option for Host Instances

              Would like to have the restart option for host instances like the Biztalk Administration console. Actually, we need to select hosts instance and choose stop, and reselect the same hosts instance and then select start. A restart option will make this operation quicker and reduce the possibility of error.

              • auto correction alarm could be set to work only within the monitor window of the selected alarm.

                It would be great if the auto correction alarm could be set to work only within the monitor window of the selected alarm.

                i.e.
                Use the following settings to restrict threshold violation alerts on specific days and time
                Start time = 00:00 and end time 07:30.

                  • Adding KB articles to Alert

                    Hello,

                    It would be greate if you could somehow link KB articles with existing alarms, so that you can write a custom article for specific alerts.
                    The idea is that, when an alert is raised there is a link, or some sort of icon or a mark, sent with the alert if linked KB article exists. It would greatly help L1 and L2 support teams, and new team members

                    • Alert & Email customization

                      I have two feature requests for BizTalk 360:

                      1) I would like to be able to include a eventlog message in the email. Furthermore I would like the email to be more configurable, e.g. using placeholders

                      2) I would like to have different email templates, thereby facilitating the distribution of various messages generated by the same alert

                      • Longer error texts in KB articles

                        Currently error texts for KB articles can only be 20 characters. This makes it hard to make error texts uniquely identifiable. So it would help if we could enter more characters, say 250, in that field.

                        • Knowledgebase should be searchable

                          Knowledge base should be searchable, both free text search and searching for all knowledge base articles connect to a variant of artifacts. i.e all articles for this application and this send port.

                            In the BAM Portal you are able to view related BAM Activities. This is a crucial feature to be able to view repeating group information within a message as well as be able to see other related messages used in the overall business process. This feature does not exist currently in BizTalk360 in the Data Access - Business Access Monitoring section

                                      Process Monitoring is a powerful feature, but often times when we’re monitoring receive or send ports, we need to exclude holidays. For example, if monitoring a send port to ensure at least one message is sent through it every MON-FRI (i.e. Business Day), we want to be able to exclude company holidays, such as Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving, etc. It would be great if there were a list we could maintain for holidays within BizTalk360, and then when setting up Process Monitoring we could check a box to exclude company holidays. That would make the Process Monitoring feature even more valuable.…

                                      • BAM Query Filter expressions

                                        We would like to use "Is Empty"  filter criteria in query expression but it seems that Biztalk360 BAM build query expression does not have that option.

                                        Is it possible to some how build a BAM query in Biztalk360 and have the “Is Empty” filter criteria in use for a text field?
