Powershell Notification Channel
In the previous versions of BizTalk360 we had the following external notification channels
- Web Hook
- Microsoft Teams
And now we have introduced Powershell notification channel thereby allowing you to execute a Powershell script each time an alarm is triggered when the threshold is crossed. This was one of the features most requested by customers as a nice to have requirement as it would enable to perform some tasks via the Powershell script each time the alarm was triggered.
Additional Columns in Query & Filters Enhancements
The latest improvements include customization of the Grid columns used in Queries across BizTalk360. These can be dynamically removed or added based on the user preference and then saved for future reference as well.
Advanced Event Log Viewer Performance Improvement
A previous version of BT360 introduced a new capability to monitor the Event Logs of the BizTalk & SQL servers by calling the Windows Management Instrumentation service every minute. Because of the restriction with the environment level, all the servers will be polled every minute to collect the Event Log data. We resolved this issue in this release by allowing you to customize and narrow down your Event Log search. Further in the Data Monitoring – event Logs section, based on the server selection, the sources will be listed.
