  1. message volume by schema - more functionality

    The widget should Allow for filtering of schemas to see only those that interest me
    Also allow for more information eg - no of messages per schema to be viewed

    • KB

      Hi,
      It could be great to display a tooltip under the "KB" icon in the MessageBox queries, just to display the title of the KB and also to do a quick access to the KB tab.

        • 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.

            • 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)
              • (Addressed By Action) : Resubmit from source | Raised with Service Desk | No action required
              •…

              • Display the modified date/time in front of each resource

                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).

                • Ability to save Email Distribution lists

                  Ability to create email distributions lists that are saved and can be reused for future alerts. This will prevent from having to type an Email over and over again. Allows for reuse.

                  • Restrict alarms by user group

                    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.

                    • Custom Notification Channels - Load from GAC

                      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.

                      • BizTalk Maintenance Schedule

                        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.

                        • Drill down in Analytics graphs

                          Hi,
                          In the Analytics graphs, where I have the "count" of messages in a particular time frame, it could be interested to have the ability to understand what are the types of messages that were processed during this time frame.
                          Because sometimes it is very interested to identify which particular flow is the most used during a peak.

                          • Graphical representation of maps

                            Currently, you can search on Artifacts in BizTalk 360, including maps and schema's. When you search for schema's for instance, you can see the schema itself by selecting schema viewer.
                            In case of a map, it would be useful to see a graphical representation of the map, like BizTalk Documenter.

                                    It would be excellent to be able to save a customised user access profile as a new template so to make it easier to grant multiple users similar security profiles. i realise you can do this by applying a profile to a group account, but that doesn't allow you to make minor changes to each individual user within the group.

                                        • Messaging latency SLA monitoring / alerting

                                          Making extended use of the captured Messaging Performance analytics data, it would be good to be able to set a performance SLA for messaging through BizTalk. If the latency of a specific data interchange drops below the SLA threshold then raise an alert for investigation.
