  1. Windows Task Scheduler

    I would like to be able to access the Task Scheduler from BizTalk360 so that I can see when scheduled task are about to run/ have run. Additionally, I would also like the functionality to execute a task schedule as this requires logging onto the BizTalk server to manually execute a scheduled task.

    • Track Windows Updates on BizTalk Server

      I would like BizTalk 360 to track all the Windows updates that are stored on the server. Recently we had an issue where a Windows Update caused one of our BizTalk Applications to fail. Once the problematic update(s) were found and removed. The BizTalk Application started working again.

      • Customize the Legend for Analytics widgets

        Is it possible to customize the host performance widget to show logical biztalk host name instead of the win service name?
        Difficult for us to relate to which biztalkhost this performance graph reports on.

          • Export/Import Binding settings from Biztalk server

            How do we import\export application bindings with Biztalk360?

            This is a core BizTalk functionality often used by BizTalk developers, thus is expected by your customers be integrated in your product as a default.

            • Ping Monitoring

              To add to the list of endpoint types that BizTalk360 monitors, it would good to monitor ping results.

              We have an Oracle database server that keeps going down that is used by one of our BizTalk Send Ports. It would be good to alert if the database server is unavailable using a simple ping.

              • BizTalk Best Practices Analyser

                It would be good if BizTalk360 was integrated with the BizTalk Best Practices Analyser:

                - Schedule the running of scans.
                - Store the history of scan reports (within specified purge settings).
                - Store which "best practices" you want to ignore (with a justification specified).
                - Alert if any "best practices" fail following a scheduled scan (that you don't want to ignore).

                • Developer Licence

                  It would be good if BizTalk360 offered a free (or very-cheap) developer licence. Right now we have one development environment setup with BizTalk360 that we share across the developers in our team. This is not ideal.

                  What we would like is for each developer to have an BizTalk360 installed on their local machines. This would bring the advantages of:
                  - The DevOps team become familiar using the product early in delivery lifecycle. They are not expected to learn a different set of tools in upper test and production environments.
                  - For team looking to use a “BT360Deploy” configuration-as-code approach techniques,…

                    • Restrict access to message content for Tech Support on Application (integration) level

                      We need to protect message content from Biztalk technical support (outsourced) in about 50 of 500 Biztalk applications.
                      Access will be necessery in 450 applications (integrations) for error handling, but for 50 the payload cannot be viewed due to export control regulations.
                      Now it's just possible to restrict access to all or nothing regarding message content,.

                      • Disable Analytics graphs auto-refresh

                        Hi,
                        In the Analytics dashboard, is it possible to add the ability to disable the auto-refresh. For example, when we are using the zoom in the graph, if it is refreshed automatically, then we loose the current zoom.

                        • Stop IIS from the Operation part

                          Hi,
                          It could be good to have the ability to stop / restart IIS application pools at the same place where we can stop/start host instances.

                            When defining a new process monitor, the list of receive locations or send ports should be sorted in the alphabetical order and/or it could be great to have a search filter.

                            • FILE and FTP locations monitoring - even for locations not used by BizTalk

                              Hi,
                              The FILE and FTP notification features are great :) But it should also be great to have the ability to monitor locations that are not used by BizTalk.
                              I have a use case where my customer use an other product than BizTalk for several flows and we want to use BizTalk360 to monitor these locations too. Today it is not possible.

                                It would be good to have bulk configuration of say FILE/FTP for things like, Accessibility

                                Doing this for thousands of locations one by one is trivial.

                                • Actual message count in the Analyser module

                                  If we create a widget in the Analyser module we can create a widget. In this widget we can select to show the Message Count. But the message count is not the real count of a message in and a message out. It counts it by event type also. In Biztalk you "always" have a receive and a send event so it actual counts double.
                                  It would be nice to make a option to select the actual message count or to select a specific event type.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Edit Host settings like in Admin console

                                          When I select the Infrastructure Settings menu -> Host, and then click a required host:

                                          The Throttling Settings tab is in view mode only. Is there a way to change values as we can in the Biztalk Admin Console?
