  1. Format xml message in MessageContent

    Is it possible to format xml messages in the MessageContent tab of the Message Properties blade of a suspended instance.
    I cannot verify but they say it was present in version 7.8, but not anymore in v8.3.

    • Monitoring for Always On Instances

      With BizTalk 2016 you have the possibility to configure the DB with Always On. Because of MSDTC you have to create at least 4 instances and to create the BizTalk Db in these instances. At the moment in BizTalk360 you can only monitor 2, this should be now changed to allow a better control of all bts DB.

      • Alert for wrong startup type from NT-Service

        In the NT-Service monitoring I would like the option to make an alert for the startup-type. So we can quickly discover a wrong startup type.

        • Make the ‘time out value’ as configurable parameter in End Pont Monitoring

          Could you please make the ‘time out value’ as configurable parameter, so that we can set different ‘time out value’ to different end points.

          • User-friendly forms for updating data in Xref tables

            We want to give key-users update-access to some Cross Reference tables without learning them writing SQL queries. If Biztalk360 could provide us forms for updating data in Xref tables.

            • 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, ...

              • 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.

                • Duplicate filters in Advanced Event Viewer & across BizTalk360

                  When creating a filter in BT 360, you cannot filter on the same item more than once.  Once you select it, you cannot filter on the same item with a different parameter.  For example, in the Advanced Event Viewer, you cannot filter a match on ANY of Type equal to Error OR Type equal to Warning.  And, you can't even get around this by saying not equal to Information. This is something that you can do if you are in the Event viewer, but not in BT 360. 
                  This seems to carry over to other areas as well.  For data…

                    • Manually start a Health Check alarm

                      Hi,
                      When we configure a new alarm (for Health Check), it is not possible to force the alarm to execute immediately. It could be great to have this ability in order to avoid waiting for the next scheduled interval.

                          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.

                              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,
                                  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).

                                    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.

                                        • 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
                                          •…
