Article Summary

Like Slack, Microsoft Teams is a chat-based workspace that enables various teams in an enterprise to collaborate through a common workspace. Since messages can’t be posted directly to a team, you need to go through a channel. For that, we need to enable a connector that allows us to receive messages. To connect BizTalk360 with Microsoft Teams, the first step is to add a custom incoming Webhook to your Microsoft Teams channel. An Incoming Webhook is a way to deliver data into a service using HTTP calls. Once after adding the webhook to a channel, a new Webhook URL will get generated and through that connector, the BizTalk360 notifications will get received by your channel.

Setting up a Microsoft Teams notification in BizTalk360 is a two-step process:

  • Configure Microsoft Teams channel in BizTalk360 by entering the Connector details
  • Enabling Microsoft Teams Notification channel in BizTalk360 Alarm

Configuring Microsoft Teams Channel in BizTalk360

  • Log in to the BizTalk360 application
  • Click the Settings option from the menu option at the left of the page
  • Click Notifications from the left menu bar to expand
  • Click Notification Channels
  • Select the checkbox against the Microsoft Teams Channel name (B360.Notifier.MicrosoftTeamsNotification)
  • Click on the ellipse icon next to the channel name and click Edit
  • Click Next if you do not want to modify the DLL file name and logo
  • Enter the Microsoft Teams Connector details on the configuration page
  • Message card summary (optional) this is to customize the Teams Message Card; the entered text will get displayed in the Teams Message Card when the BizTalk360 notification is received
  • Notification Settings - Enable "Notify only Error(s) and Warning(s)" to notify only the error and warning state artifacts in the alert. Else the artifacts which are in a healthy state will also be listed in the alert
  • Use Proxy - Enable "Use Proxy" if you have configured a proxy in your environment
  • Click the Save button to save the Microsoft Teams configuration settings
  • Once you click configure, the Is Configured field changes from No to Yes

Enabling Microsoft Teams Notification Channel in BizTalk360 Alarm

Once you have configured the Microsoft Teams channel in BizTalk360, you can enable this notification channel from the Alarm creation blade to complete the process. BizTalk360 will start monitoring the status of the artifact based on the threshold condition. If there is any threshold violation, you will receive the alerts to configured Microsoft Teams notification channel.

To enable the Microsoft Teams notification channel, you need to follow the steps as shown below:

  • From the Home dashboard, click the Monitoring tab
  • Select Manage Alarms
  • Click New Alarm
  • Select Consolidated Monitoring to create an alarm
  • Enter a descriptive name for the Alarm (Microsoft Teams Notifications), Email id, and Alarm Description
  • In the Custom Notification Channel(s) section, you will notice Microsoft Teams is listed with a toggle icon. Toggle the icon to enable the Microsoft Teams Notifications
  • Click Validate to validate the notification channel details
  • Click Next to continue creating the alarm
  • Map the alarm with any Application artifacts and the BizTalk Server environment
  • Once the mapping is done, whenever there is any threshold violation in the environment, you will receive the alert notifications on Microsoft Teams. You need not log in to BizTalk360 to view the status of the environment at any point in time
