  1. Auto-correct email improvements

    Autocorrect feature works correctly but the auto correction email message displays “Critical” status in the summary. The summary message should display the final correction status along with prior status.

    Also, the auto correction fix message displays under the “Issues of application name”. There should be new paragraph saying “Issues fixed:”

  3. Filtering capabilities in Alert History

    From time to time I find myself wandering through the Alert History. At that times I often miss the capability to:

    Being able to see all records in the Alert History.
    Have filtering capabilities like we know from Message Box queries and Graphical Flow.
    Being able to show the actual mail which is being sent (I noticed this is in the database).

  4. Data Monitoring Suggestion

    I am configuring some Data Monitoring Alerts in BizTalk360 and have run into a snag. In my Test environment, we have crafted an ESB Exception for our Gibsons.FIN.Transactions BizTalk Application and have a Fault Category of ProcessCOACacheMisses. However when I am configuring this Data Monitoring alert in Production, I don’t have this Fault Category yet as it is a new application. I would imagine you are performing a DISTINCT SQL Query on the field and populating the dropdown with these values. It would be nice to override and provide my own text as now I have to wait for that…

  5. Functionality Request Regarding "Process Monitor"

    Process Monitor to handle acknowledgements.
    For examle
    - System sends an invoice to BizTalk
    - BizTalk do a couple och mappings
    - BizTalk sends Invoice to VAN och directly to customer
    - VAN or Customer sends an xml-ACK to BizTalk with invoicenumber and status
    - BizTalk360 triggers alarm if:
    o No ACK received in x minutes
    o If status in ACK is different from ”OK”
    - View in BizTalk360 that shows
    o What system did send the invoice and when
    o For how long did we have to wait for ACK
    o And more…..
    o Of cource filter to be…

  6. Alerting per Suspended Instance

    The requirement is that the customer wants to receive an alert each time a message or instance got suspended. So this is a bit like an event driven approach.
    Applications
    Say you have an alert for Suspended Instances with a Warning threshold of (more than) 0 and an Error threshold of (more than) 5. This would result in getting a notification when:
    a. nothing is suspended yet and
    b. a Message or Instance got suspended
    This is because the Warning threshold is set to (more than) 0. As far as I am aware of, the next notification you would get…

  7. UP alerts beyond the restricted time in Threshold alert

    As we have some of the alerts running only office hours (8am-5pm) we sometimes note the following scenario:

    1. An error occurs at 3 pm.
    2. An alert email DOWN is sent out to ICC and on-call personnel immediately.
    3. The error is fixed 6 pm.
    4. No UP email is sent to ICC and on-call personnel due to the 8-5 limit.

    Somehow it would feel more safe to receive the UP email, even if the schedule should not be active at that time. The way it is today, we that receive the alerts are "supposed to have knowledge" of the schedules on every…

  8. 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”.

  9. 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…

  10. Alarm to configure and monitor on banking holidays

    When creating an alarm and configuring the days of the week and the daily times to monitor a resource, is it possible to specify banking holidays? The customer wants to avoid breaking changes when new versions are released, and so may allow exception cases where they receive notifications we shouldn’t.

  11. Enabling another receive location automatically with a different address

    If we had a receive port on a location that went down and it failed the retries for auto healing, is there a way of enabling another receive location automatically with a different address much in the same way that the Backup transport works inside the send port. I am asking this question so I can have an alternative solution to clustering the receive location.

  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. Data monitoring could not ended at midnight

    It is not possible to end a data process monitoring at 12h00am (midnight). Let say we want to monitor 7h00pm until 12h00am, the web interface got an error: "The end time should be atleast 15 mins later than the start time.". We have to set 23h45 or 00:15. So it is impossible to get a result at 12h00am.
    If we set 23h45, we don't have the last 15 minutes of the day included in the monitoring. If we set 00h15, the first 15 minutes of the new day is part of the new day, not the last day.

    So our…

  14. 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…

  16. Preview Facility for Data Monitoring Filters

    While mapping a MessageBox data monitoring to an Alarm, SQLDataFilter section does not have a Preview query option. Having a preview option is good in terms of being definitive about functionality of the monitoring. It does depend on availability of the correct data in message box. But considering the fact that these kind of alarms are set reactively than proactively, it will be nice to have Preview option.

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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…
