  1. 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.

        • 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.

          • Create & Save Custom User Access Template

            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.

            • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Consolidated View of Alarms in Monitoring Dashboard

                        In the current version (8.2), the Monitoring Dashboard only displays one alarm at a time. In an organisation that configures many alarms, this means they can't see an overview in one screen of all mappings - unless they include an additional alarm that includes everything, which would cause duplicate emails, etc. Pretty sure that older versions of BizTalk360 included a consolidated view(?)

                            • BT360 MSI overwrites user-modified service config files

                              During installation of new BT360 versions, I found that the MSI overwrites the service (and related) configuration files without warning. Can the MSI / installer be modified to prompt the user to either save the configuration files (services, logging, etc.) somewhere or at least inform the user that the files will be overwritten?

                                • When copying an alarm, allow the copy of the mappings aswell.

                                  As per description. The purpose being to leverage the copy function without the need to go through the whole process again where existing alarm mappings may already represent the main or whole mapping requirements.

                                      • Process Monitoring - Allow the addition of more than one receive/send combination

                                        As per title.

                                        Allow multiple receive/send monitors to be grouped into a single monitor. Could use AND/OR operators to tune the monitor.

                                        • Allow the creation of Alarm Mapping templates used in by alarms (instanced or referenced)

                                          As per title and other suggestions.

                                          Allow a mapping template to be created and named. These templates would be 'masters'. Then when creating alarms allow a template to be selected and instanced into the alarm or copied to a version and the versioned copy referenced by one or more alarms. Obviously if a template is copied version is referenced by multiple alarms dependencies would need to be displayed or alerted if changes were made to the referenced mappings for example.

                                          I could go on but the idea is there ...
