  1. Problems rotating dashboards on a monitor

    We have a single monitor on a wall near our BizTalk DevOps team. This is used to display dashboards for Azure, VSTS and BizTalk360.

    We use the “Tab Carousel” add-in for Chrome to rotate the pages.

    We have the following problems rotating BizTalk360 Monitoring dashboards:
    - We cannot display the "full screen" version.
    - Zoom settings are lost.
    - Dashboard 2 will refresh back to Dashboard 1 (first in drop down list).

  2. 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.

  3. BizTalk Best Practices Analyser

    It would be good if BizTalk360 was integrated with the BizTalk Best Practices Analyser:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=43382&751be11f-ede8-5a0c-058c-2ee190a24fa6=True
    - 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).

  4. Allow for monitoring of 3 or more SQL instances, or include disk monitoring of BT instance by default

    Allow for monitoring of 3 or more SQL instances, or include disk monitoring of BT instance by default.

    By Default you can't Monitor the BT Instance Disks (Monitoring> SQLServer Instances > BT Instance Name)

    So you have to add it to Settings > Monitoring and Notification > SQL Servers for Monitoring

    This only gives you a maximum of two

    We have 3 SQL Instances relating to the BizTalk Environment including the BT one, so we have to choose to not monitor one of them.

  5. ESB filter options- Improvement

    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
    5.The only filter available on Exception Stack Trace is 'Is Equal To'

    This feature has come as part of the version 8.9.5 release. Sing up to our newsletter to be notified of upcoming releases

    1. Filtering is enabled for Scope
    2. Now Exception Stack Trace has ‘Contains’ operator for filtering

    Remaining items are in our development pipeline

  6. Alert if message are active for over a day

    Messages are in Active status over days. Which is wasting resources. BizTalk 360 should be able to monitor and alert, if a message has been in Active in Running Service Instance for over 3 hours

  7. Wildcard to event log sources for Avanced Event Viewer

    Currently, you can only enter specific event sources. With a naming convention of custom event sources, it would be a lot easier to enter and maintain the Custom Event Viewer if we could use wildcards.

  8. Saving Tracked messages

    From time to time I need to save Tracked messages. When the messages are small, it is easy to select and copy the XML of those messages in the Graphical Flow module. But in case messages are larger than a couple KB's, it is tough to impossible (msgs over 50000 chars got truncated) to select and copy that XML.

    For that reason I would like to have a button to be able to save Tracked messages.

  9. Widget to display the flow performances in the Analytics DashBoard

    When pinning a Flow in the Analytics DashBoard, it could be very good to have a graph with the performances of the flow (average response time, number of messages, ...) like the graphs displayed in front of the flow in the Analytics web pages.

  10. Cluster NT service monitoring

    As of now, there is an option to monitor NT service. But no option to monitor Clustered NT services.

    Exact requirement: SSO service is clustered so you cannot monitor it unless you have an “at least one active” functionality as with host instances.

  11. Add re-occurring maintenance window options and a section to view scheduled windows

    With version 8.8 we now have the ability to schedule multiple maintenance windows in the future. Thank you very much!

    Can we add the ability to schedule maintenance window re-occurrence. Including a way to view and modify them.

    If possible it would be nice if we could or schedule skipping an occurrence or simply temporarily disable and re-enable it later, rather than having to delete and recreate.

  12. Unlimited extraction of tracked messages from biztalkdtadb

    Sometimes I need to extract several thousand messages from tracking database (DTA). In BizTalk360 there is currently a limitation of 500 messages and 10mb file size (zip)

  13. Threshold monitoring like alerts in data Monitoring

    A notification when the threshold is reached and no further notification if the situation stays like that.
    An UP notification when that issue gets resolved

  14. An Application level is should be good to select which receive location and send ports that a user should see.

    In user access policy an Application level, it should be good to select which receive location and send ports that a user should see.

  15. 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.

  16. 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,.

  17. Redesign monitoring dashboard

    The monitoring dashboard does not scale properly. When you use threshold monitoring in collapsed view, only the top part of the dashboard scales.

    The bottom part, which lists the applications you want to monitor, does not scale, resulting in scroll bars and applications which are not visible in the dashboard because they won't fit on screen..

  18. Editing properties of multiple alarms at the same time

    From time to time we need to edit properties like email ids for multiple alarms. Currently you have to open each alarm and make the necessary edits. It would be great to be able to select multiple alarms and make the edits at once.

  20. Dashboard for support people- read only

    I would like to request a feature to create a dashboard for Servicedesk/Large monitors.
    This should be a read-only full-screen view for 'on the wall' monitors for a Servicedesk/Monitoring group
