BizTalk and SQL NT Services are used to perform operations on the NT Services that are available on the machines that host the server. Usually, both windows, as well as third-party NT Services, run on the systems and it should be noted that there are many exceptions in controlling the NT Services. Some services will stop automatically when they are started the OS detects that an NT Service is not being used by any process and will stop them automatically. In BizTak360, the NT Services operation will appear as a new tab in the already existing BizTalk Server Details and in the new SQL Servers modules.

BizTalk NT Services

Many Operations can be performed on the NT Services based on the state of the selected NT service.

  • The drop-down Actions button will show all the actions that can be performed on the NT Services
  • The Operations will be filtered based on the state of the services selected
  • Note that there are some system services that cannot be operated and they will be disabled
  • The Refresh button that appears to the right of the action button can be used to refresh the list of NT Services

Super users will have complete access to all the modules. Normal users will have restricted access and the level of restriction can be chosen by the super user and can prevent access to SQL Servers using ‘User Access Policy’ under settings. For a normal user who doesn’t have access to SQL Servers, the section will not be visible on the tab. The normal user who doesn't have the privilege to make operations on the NT Services will not be able to perform any operations and the action button will not be visible.

Both BizTalk NT Service activities and SQL NT Services activities are commonly displayed in 'Governance and Audit for Servers’ and also the Live Feed panel. The Operations done on different servers will be differentiated, and can also be filtered. Besides the server name, the type of server will also be visible.

Filter Implementation for Grids

A Filter capability is implemented for the grid columns to do better search from the grid columns. A user can filter the data from the respective rows according to their needs.

The following types of filters have been implemented in the grid columns of Windows NT Services:

  • Status Filter
  • Text Filter

Status Filter

The status filter is used to filter Status columns. The drop down of the filter shows values according the statuses which are displayed in the column. The user can select the status from the drop down and filter accordingly.

Text Filter

This is the most commonly used filter. Using this filter, a user can perform text based search. The text filter has the following options:

  • Is equal to
  • Is not equal to
  • Starts with
  • Ends with
  • Contains
  • Does not Contains
  • Is Null
  • Is not null
  • Is Empty
  • Is not Empty
