New Features

FeaturesCommentsSection in BizTalk
Clustered NT Services MonitoringBizTalk360 is now capable of monitoring clustered NT Services by setting up the expected state as 'At least One Active'. With this feature, the BizTalk360 monitoring service will ensure at least one clustered NT service is up and running.  An alert will get triggered when both services go down

Monitoring-> BizTalk/SQL Server-> NT Services

Schedule Maintenance

Stop Alerts for maintenance is now revamped with the best user experience and some additional options.

  • User can create recurrence schedules to stop receiving alerts during maintenance 
  • The user can edit the schedule and manually stop the maintenance in-between, i.e before the maintenance period gets over. So, it is not required to wait until the end of the configured maintenance cycle. 
  • Schedule actions such as create, delete, modify, stop maintenance are audited for further references
Settings-> Monitoring and Notifications-> Schedule Maintenance


EnhancementsCommentsSection in BizTalk

MSMQ- Age Monitoring 

The threshold parameter 'Message Age' is added to monitor and alert the oldest message in MSMQ, based on the configured message age units Days/hours/minutes.Monitoring ->Queues-> MSMQ

Web Endpoint Monitoring

Monitoring Status Enabled/Disabled is now introduced in Web Endpoint monitoring. This enables the user to define when BizTalk360 should start/stop monitoring the configured Web Endpoint. 

BizTalk360 will start to monitor the configured Web Endpoint only if the status is set as enabled.

Monitoring ->BizTalk Environment->Web Endpoint
Clone Alarm with mappings

Users can now easily copy all the artifacts mapped for monitoring and the data monitoring configurations from one alarm to another. With the Clone alarm feature, users can copy both the alarm configurations and also all the artifacts mapping configurations.

Monitoring->Manage Alarm->Clone 
View MDN message in EDI AS2

EDI AS2/MDN message content can be viewed as an encoded and wired format.

SQL Server Performance Widget

Widget to show the SQL server performance(CPU & Memory Usage ) is added in the analytics dashboard 

Reassociate  the SQL Query

In the Reporting section, the secure SQL query widget is allowed to edit and reassociate to any configured secure SQL queries. 

Event Log Data collection optimization

In earlier versions, the Advanced Event Viewer feature collected all the Event log entries for the configured Event Logs and Event Log Sources, but irrespective of error levels. From this version on, to avoid data growth, the user can (de)select the error levels(Information, Warning, Error, etc ) which should be collected. This way, BizTalk360 will start collecting event logs based on the selected error levels.

Group Properties

Under BizTalk Group properties users can view newly added properties in BizTalk Server 2020.  

  • Receive Location (Fault Tolerance) 
  •  Audit Log

SMTP Notification channel

User can define for which error type(s) notifications should be sent through SMTP notification channels. I.e only in case of Error & Warning or Error/Warning/Healthy state of the artifacts. 

Settings->Monitoring ->Notification Channel->SMTP
Auditing Message Content view

In the previous version, all the messaging actions (Suspend, Resume, Terminate) were audited for further reference. To tighten the security, now when the user views the Message content that will also be audited.

The operation dashboard can be edited and renamed at a later point in time.
