  1. 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

    • 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.

        • BAM Relationships

          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

            • Holiday exclusions for process monitoring

              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.…

                    • Support SQL cluster monitoring

                      When SQL 1 server went down and SQL 2 (clustering) starts running BizTalk Server starts capturing and running. But BizTalk360 still pointing to that SQL1 sever and keep pooping the message "Disks: Configured Disk . No longer exist in the Server XXXXXXX." we expect BizTalk360 should support SQL Cluster Monitoring.

                        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?

                            We using BizTalk360 to manage the integrations for while now. We use the BizTalk360 application mainly for our Integration Management Groups. In each group there are one or more persons responsible for the integration flow.

                                    1.Need an filter on failure column values that currently exist in the exception fault table. So that we can setup a proactive alarm on an application.

                                    2.The only available filter expression is "is Equal To"

                                    3. Filter with an 'OR' condition on the same column. i.e. Application is Equal To 'App1' or 'App2'. You can add another filter, but then you lose the selection of 'Application" on the second filter

                                    4.There is no filtering defined for Scope

                                      • Process monitoring execution result page

                                        The information provided in Data Monitoring Dashboard is enough.

                                        The schedules I configured to monitor the reception of at least 1 file (>0). Even though Condition is showing ‘Greater Than’ I think Expected Count should also show ‘>0’ to be more accurate in the Process monitoring execution result page at Process monitoring dashboard.

                                        • Monitor "Store procedure" in SQL query monitoring

                                          In the Custom SQL Queries panel, customer has defined a query, with the "EXEC" and calling a store procedure and it works very well. The query returns only one integer value. This is put (that call a store procedure) in the Database Query related with an alarm. But in the Database Query, the return value is empty. It seems to not get the return value? So the alarm is always in error. Hence the database query put into an alarm must support the call of a stored procedure.
