  1. Database file utilization

    We have had a few outages lately because the BizTalkMsgBoxDb and the BizTalkDTADb log files have grown out of control and filled up the entire disk. I am not sure if this is possible given the permissions available to the application but it would be really nice if the database file and log file utilization was monitored either for rapid expansion or percentage of disk space so an alarm can go off before everything hits critical levels. Alternatively it could look for long running non-committed transactions that could send the log file spiraling out of control.

    • Improve filter options in Data monitoring screen under "SET DATA FILTER"

      The filter options under Data Monitoring alert are very limited.
      Example: For query type 'Suspended Service Instances', the 'Add Filter' only has one condition 'Is Equal to'.
      Which means, we cannot create filters like 'Is Not Equal to'.
      This is specially important when we don't want to monitor suspended messages of specific port/application/service/host for example.

      • Proactive Biztalk operations helped with an alarm definition

        Would like to operate Biztalk Applications (Start and stop ports or hosts) with an indicator that will say if the artefact should be stopped or started.
        This informations is available in the monitoring dashboard but is not available while we are operating Biztalk.
        This could be done by addind a view of a existing alarm while we use the "Application Support panel" and "Infrastructure Setting panel".
        This will be usefull to our helpdesk to operate Biztalk without hesitation and will simplify our instructions to the helpdesk when a problem occurred or while we implement new or updated Biztalk Applications.
        It's…

        • Rename alarms

          Currently, it is not possible to rename alarms, once they have been created. When editing an alarm in the "Monitoring / Manage Alarms" view, it would be good to have the possibility to rename the alarm.

          • Add a delay for autocorrection

            Is it possible to add a delay between each autocorrection attempt? To avoid reaching too fast the number of retry and to cover particular use cases where we need to wait before re-activating a receive location for example?

            • Show all receive locations, all send ports or all orchestrations for application monitoring in one overview

              In application monitoring I'd like to have the option to show all receive locations, all send ports or all orchestrations in one overview.

              This would make it much faster and easier to add all items in your monitoring.
              And this would also make it much easier to add new items in your existing monitoring or to do a weekly or monthly check whether all new items are added in your application.
              Now we have to click and reclick thousands of items if we want to check we have all items in our application monitoring. Especially when you have a lot…

              • Support message security for resubmit

                All our BizTalk services need to support message security (TransportWithMessageCredential to be precise). This includes any resubmit services. At the moment there is no way to specify client credentials in BizTalk360, so the suggestion is to support client credentials for message resubmission.

                • Status of your issues on the biztalk360 support site

                  This motion is for the overview and status of issues on the biztalk360 support site.
                  It is very inconvenient that all issues always have the status "Waiting for your reply".
                  Even if the last comment form BiaTalk360 is that they will contact me when an issue is fixed the give this issue the status "waiting for your reply".
                  I have mentioned this once in the issue itself but with no succes.
                  Their answer was sorry for the false satus, we will change this.
                  And even this issue still have the status .. "Waiting for your reply"

                    Hello Everyone,

                    I am pleased to inform you that the management team did a general review of the support processes and it is now under reconstruction. This will also include better status description for our customers.

                  • Option to read issues from your coworkers and respond to those issues.

                    This motion is also for the BizTalk360 support site.
                    It should be nice if you could read and respond to issues reported by your coworkers, or even the option to change the ownership to your coworker if you are going on a holiday or if you leave the company.

                    To avoid unwished responses from everyone there should be an option to add certain people you know. So the owner or reporter still can controll who can read an issue and who can respond to an issue.

                    • Find Applications with NO alarm

                      Find Applications with NO alarm.
                      How can you verify alarms being set on all applications?
                      As is there is no way to do this. I want a feature that I can see Applications not mapped to a specific alarm. As you do have the list of all applications and you do have the list of all alarms - it is not very hard to implement this feature

                      • Alarm mapping

                        Alarm mapping. I would like to see a template that you can apply for all Applications.

                        If you have an general alarm it must be easier to apply this alarm to all Applications instead of manually stepping into the application iteslf and mapp the alarm as you have to at the moment.

                        In my case we have 8 general alarms that I want to assign to all our Applications (currently 95) so you quicly realize the tedious task of doing it this way.

                                • Rename a messaging pattern directly from the detail

                                  In the Messaging Pattern list, if I click on a GUID for a not-named messaging pattern, I open the detailed view of the flow.
                                  From here, if I want to rename the pattern, it is not possible... so I need to go back to the list, and search with the GUID and then rename it...
                                  It could be much more convenient to renamed it directly from the graphical message flow.

                                  • "All applications" application in the Alarm mapping

                                    I have a particular case where a lot of artefacts, distributed across multiple apps, needs to be mapped with the same alarm.
                                    I don't want to dive into each app to select the artefacts so it could be good to have a flat list of all receive locations / send ports / orchestrations with a search and then the ability to select a lot of these artefacts and set the monitoring status and auto-correct.

                                    • See metrics grouped by BizTalk Application

                                      We have over 100 applications in BizTalk and we would like to see metrics for each of them individually (performance, message volume, alerts, errors, etc.).

                                        • Show all applications for users who are no superuser

                                          In User Acces Policy you can give access for all Applications and for all custom queries.
                                          I'd expect all Applications and all Custom queries will select everything from the table so you don't have to change this after adding an Application or a Custom Query.

                                          Unfortunately this doesn't work like my expectation. So I have to change this for multiple user everytime an applicaton or a custom query is added.
                                          And this happens many times because we have many Applications and new Applications are added almost every month.
