  1. Developer Licence

    It would be good if BizTalk360 offered a free (or very-cheap) developer licence. Right now we have one development environment setup with BizTalk360 that we share across the developers in our team. This is not ideal.

    What we would like is for each developer to have an BizTalk360 installed on their local machines. This would bring the advantages of:
    - The DevOps team become familiar using the product early in delivery lifecycle. They are not expected to learn a different set of tools in upper test and production environments.
    - For team looking to use a “BT360Deploy” configuration-as-code approach techniques,…

    • 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,.

      • Disable Analytics graphs auto-refresh

        Hi,
        In the Analytics dashboard, is it possible to add the ability to disable the auto-refresh. For example, when we are using the zoom in the graph, if it is refreshed automatically, then we loose the current zoom.

        • Stop IIS from the Operation part

          Hi,
          It could be good to have the ability to stop / restart IIS application pools at the same place where we can stop/start host instances.

          • Sort by alphabetic order the

            Hi,
            When defining a new process monitor, the list of receive locations or send ports should be sorted in the alphabetical order and/or it could be great to have a search filter.

            • Bulk configuring of FILE/FTP for accessibility

              It would be good to have bulk configuration of say FILE/FTP for things like, Accessibility

              Doing this for thousands of locations one by one is trivial.

              • Actual message count in the Analyser module

                If we create a widget in the Analyser module we can create a widget. In this widget we can select to show the Message Count. But the message count is not the real count of a message in and a message out. It counts it by event type also. In Biztalk you "always" have a receive and a send event so it actual counts double.
                It would be nice to make a option to select the actual message count or to select a specific event type.

                    • Monitoring for Always On Instances

                      With BizTalk 2016 you have the possibility to configure the DB with Always On. Because of MSDTC you have to create at least 4 instances and to create the BizTalk Db in these instances. At the moment in BizTalk360 you can only monitor 2, this should be now changed to allow a better control of all bts DB.

                        The Throttling Settings tab is in view mode only. Is there a way to change values as we can in the Biztalk Admin Console?

                        • 'Artifact count' widget doesnt link to correct Filtered Query

                          Upon clicking any of the displayed artifacts on this widget, we're forwarded to the 'Search BizTalk Artifacts' screen but only to its default state as if we had just used the regular menu.
                          Clicking an artifact on the widget itself should lead us directly to the relevant query for that specific artifact and also automatically execute the query.
                          For example:
                          Clicking on the 'Orchestrations' artifact should forward us to the 'Search BizTalk Artifacts' screen when the query has been automatically executed for orchestrations and is already displaying its results.

                            • Link ESB widget to relevant query

                              When using a widget related to the ESB Portal on our dashboard, we should be automatically forwarded to the relevant query results in the ESB Portal upon clicking any specific part in the chart. For example:
                              In the 'Fault Count By Application' widget - if we click any of the pie slices we should be forwarded to the query showing all faults for this application in the ESB Portal (currently nothing happens).

                                      • Mass remove orphaned feature

                                        Hi,
                                        When we monitor a lot of artefacts and after an import of an alarm exported from another environment, we have sometimes a lot of orphaned items.
                                        It could be very helpful to have, in the import process, a way to remove all orphaned at the same time. Otherwise, we need to go into each application, go on send ports/receive ports/orchestrations, ...

                                        • Remove orphaned for BizTalk Servers and SQL Servers monitoring

                                          Hi,
                                          When we import an alarm from one environment to another, there are sometimes orphaned artefacts.
                                          You already have a button "Remove orphaned" in Applications (for send ports, receive locations,..) but this feature does not exist for Disk and System Resources when monitoring BizTalk and SQL Servers.
