  1. Stop and disable the host instance when auto correction is set to Disabled

    There is no way for setting Stopped and Disabled states – not for monitoring or auto-correct behavior.

    The problem this is creating for me is that if someone inadvertently starts a secondary FTP Receive Host Instance (as someone did recently) I want BizTalk360 to:

    1. alert me that this Host Instance is in an unexpected state
    2. have auto-correct set it to the desired state – Disabled
    3. and stop the running service – because it should never have been started and must be stopped: a. Set to disabled and left running is not what I need b. Setting ‘Desired State’ to Stopped…

  2. Check inbound file size < 10 kb

    The customer has a new BI process that collect data and send it to the CRM system.
    Sometime there are no data, the source system creates an “empty” file.
    The file is not empty because there is the header information, but no data.
    Customer asked me to create an alarm, if a file smaller than 10 kb would be found.
    I hoped to find this function into the Data Monitoring, but was not.
    I think this could be a good function for a future version.

  3. 24 hours Data monitoring with fixed time alert

    Actually in data monitoring, it is possible to schedule a 24h frequency monitor but we can't specify when the alert will be sent. By Example: Need to check if we receive a file for 24h and send the alert at 5hAM to call the support.

  4. Reserved space in Collapsed view-Monitoring Dashboard

    We plan to use the Monitoring Dashboard on a wallboard, and would like to use the collapsed view of the Monitoring Dashboard. So that the reserved for tree views of BizTalk servers, SQL Server Instances, and BizTalk Environment will be hidden and we can able to monitor the BizTalk applications alone.

  5. 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.

  6. Data monitoring custom time

    New Message Box data monitoring tool – This new feature to perform actions is great allowing automatically messages to be resumed or terminated. The only issues with that is the minimum frequency we can set is only to 15 minutes and it would be perfect if we are allowed to set lower values like seconds or 1 minute for example. Also the option to send or not a notification for that as sometimes we don’t need the email and the last suggestion is to add the port name as a filter for that as sometimes we only would like to…

  7. DR Log Shipping Alerts

    Is there any easy way of monitoring the status on the BTS Server Log Shipping Restore Databases job on the DR SQL instance so we can raise alerts if it fails?

    We have a client who has a cluster on both the production and DR side so 4 SQL servers total.

    I suggested we could set up alerting based on an SQL query but was wondering if there’s a simpler way.

  9. Certain receive location disabling on weekend

    The requirement is to have a certain receive location to be disabled on weekends. BizTalk only has everyday ability for this.

  10. Monitoring alert content improvements

    We have done a DR test on our biztalk environment and we received the alert stating “Monitor Error” . When The server XXXX was down during this alert, I expect the alert to say something more alarming like “SERVER DOWN” instead of “Monitor Error”.

  11. Monitoring dashboard improvements on green /red lights

    The test was to stop IIS. Simulation of web server crash, malfunction or network error. We performed an IIS Stop service only. No stop of biztalk360 service.

    The results: The client browsers keep having the service status green flashing light at top right corner of the Dashboard monitoring portal. And the monitoring icon on the top left turned red saying that the service monitoring service is stopped (which is wrong).

    So, on the upper left (blue left panel with the menu), that a red light appeared beside the icons monitoring and analytics. The red light beside monitoring is saying that…

  12. Data monitoring with arbitrary interval

    I've been informed by BizTalk 360 support that BizTalk 360 currently does not support data monitoring with arbitrary interval, say 7.5 days(180 hours). It would be nice to have this enhancement.

  13. Monitoring Free disc Space in GB's

  14. Multiple selection in the Data Monitoring screen

    Hi,
    In the Data Monitoring definition, when we have to select a receive port or a send port to monitor, it could be good to have the ability to open a "search" popup, select multiple receive ports/send ports and then add them to the data monitoring configuration.
    Instead of having just a auto-completion combobox where it is not possible to filter.

  15. Create platform alert mappings for all BizTalk nodes at once

    When you have BizTalk Enterprise with multiple BizTalk nodes and want to create a platform oriented alert, there are topics like available disk space and event log entries, which you have to create for every node of the BizTalk Group. It would be helpfull if you can create this kind of mappings for all BizTalk nodes at once.

  17. Change defaualt settings for port monitoring

    Why is the defult value for a port >1?

    I can't find any case where 2 or more messages are of high interest.

    = 1 or >0 is the one I see is most useful.

  18. Data monitoring sum mulptie ports

    On a monitoring entry it is possible to add multiple alarms. However those ports could only be monitored stand alone.

    It would be super useful if you could combine multiple ports and monitor them together.

    For example say we have three ports and are interesting in having any message received in any of them. You would like to monitor >0 in the sum of all the ports.

  19. Restrict the alarm auto-correct to specific time window

    Presently, AutoCorrect still works outside the time window.

    Ideally, I would have liked AUTOCORRECT for specific alarms to have a specific schedule.

  20. why Data Monitor doesn't have immediate up alert.

    I think Up alert should act the same on Threshold and Data Monitoring.
