Send Port Group MonitoringBizTalk360 now has the Send Port Group Monitoring capability. With this feature, users can monitor the Send Port Groups of the BizTalk applications.Monitoring -> Manage Mapping -> Application
Send Port Group OperationsWe had this functionality to view the Send Ports Groups of each application through the Search Artifacts section.

Alarm Auto ResetIn earlier versions, we had to manually reset the alarm when the notification count is reached its limit. From this version on, the alarm notification count will get automatically reset as per the user configuration (E.g.: 10 mins).Monitoring -> Manage Alarms
AutoCorrect ResetAuto healing is an existing feature available in BizTalk360 which will change the artifacts state automatically when a violation happens. There were no options to reset the counter once the limit is reached until the user changes it. From this version, the retry count will get automatically reset as per the user configuration (E.g.: 10 mins).Monitoring -> Manage Mapping
Custom User Profile TemplatesIn earlier versions, there were three predefined user profile templates in the User Access Policy section available, where the user can select and provide access to the corresponding features for custom users (normal users/NT groups). Now, we have added the ability to create custom profile templates, where the user can predefine a set of features that can be utilized during the user profile creation.Settings -> User Access Policy

Now, the expiry notification will also be shown for the other license types (Commercial, Partner & Product Specialist). This notification will provide an insight into the type of license and date of expiryHome section
Notification ChannelIn previous versions, there was no option to reconfigure the notification channel if any changes made in the existing notification channel DLL. Now, the reconfiguration process will be seamless from the UI without touching the database.
