BronzeMonitoringMonitor all the artifacts you can imagine and keep your BizTalk environment healthyAdvanced Web Endpoints MonitoringEndpoints monitoring functionality has been improved to include Payload and Custom Header in addition to authorization credentials and Proxy settings. You can also set up configuration on the response alert that is expected from the web endpoint. The response alert configuration is made available for Plain text, XML, and JSON. In the response alert configuration, you can configure alerts for return code, keyword, and response time.BizTalk Server Availability MonitoringNewNow monitor the BizTalk Server availability using BizTalk360 monitoring feature. Server Availability is determined by either ICMP protocol or Telnet Protocol.Basic read-only Admin web consoleYou’ll be able to view all the applications and majority of the artifacts in your BizTalk environment. However, you cannot perform any actions like starting, stopping, etc.Manage SQL JobsSQL jobs play a vital role in a BizTalk Server environment. SQL Jobs are responsible for keeping your BizTalk environment healthy. We have brought the capabilities to manage SQL jobs directly from the web console.Manage NT Services in BizTalk and SQL ServersOne of the main objectives for BizTalk Administrators from a security perspective is to stop people logging on/off into production BizTalk and SQL servers during business hours. In BizTalk360 version 8.4 NT Services on BizTalk and SQL Servers can be managed directly in the web console. In addition, the activities will be audited by BizTalk360.BizTalk Server Licensing WidgetFrom BizTalk360 version 8.4, we are adding the BizTalk Server License widget which will precisely tell you the number of licenses required and the retail cost.
SilverGet all Bronze features PLUSData Monitoring (Message Box, Tracking, Ports)
Message Box Data MonitoringHelps you to watch out for a condition that happens with live data in BizTalk Message box. Example: Suspended Instances for Application “PO Processing” reaches 500 with an error code of “0x23543” and instance status is “Suspended (Non-resumable)”.
Tracking Data MonitoringHelps you to monitor certain volume of business transaction based on tracked context properties. Example: If “PO Number” contains “Contoso” and “Is Processed flag is false”.
Ports MonitoringHelps you to configure transaction volume at Receive Ports and Send ports level. Example: Expecting 300 messages per hour from SAP.Advanced Monitoring Tools
Import/Export alarm configurationYou may want to test all your monitoring configuration in your staging or UAT environment and move them to production seamlessly. The import/export features allows you to do exactly same. It will help you to map the variation between environments like BizTalk server names, SQL server names, SQL instance names etc.
Auto HealingIn addition to simply notifying someone when there is a problem in the environment, the auto-healing capability will try to rectify the problem automatically. Example: If FTP receive location went down for some reason, BizTalk360 will attempt to bring it back automatically.
Operation AutomationSome of the routine mundane tasks like periodically terminating or resuming suspended (non-resumable) instances can be done via BizTalk360 seamlessly.BizTalk Admin Web ConsoleOut of the box, there is no web based access to your BizTalk environments. The only management tool that ships with BizTalk server is the standard BizTalk admin console, which is a MMC based snap in. BizTalk360 provides complete web access to your BizTalk environment with easy to use and beautiful modern web interface with dashboards, productivity and health check tools.User Access SecurityThe security mechanism in the standard BizTalk admin console is very poor. It relies on two NT groups called “BizTalk Administrator” and “BizTalk Operator” group. The rules for the “BizTalk Operators” group is hard coded without any flexibility. This forces every support person to have BizTalk administrator rights. BizTalk360 solves this challenge by providing a robust, fully customizable security mechanism. For example, you can seamlessly provide read-only access to people, restrict users to only certain applications, protect people from accessing confidential message content etc.Governance / AuditingWhen you are a group of support people diagnosing and solving problems in your production environment, it’s important to keep track of who is doing what in the environment. The standard BizTalk admin console doesn’t come with any auditing capability. Support people can pretty much do anything without getting noticed. BizTalk360 solves this problem by logging each and every activity of the support people. If there are any conflicts/problems, you can easily pinpoint how the issue originated.Graphical Message FlowBizTalk is a loosely coupled publish and subscribe engine. It’s often very hard to understand the transaction flow of messages. How did the message travel from A to B? Graphical message flow capability helps users to understand the message flow in a visual way with very interactive diagram. You can clearly see the messages, their context properties, any exception, port and orchestration configuration, all in one place. This helps even a non-BizTalk person to understand the flow of the transaction seamlessly.Tracking Manager (View Only)You track information at various places – pipelines, orchestrations, schemas, global tracking etc. Tracking manager from BizTalk360 helps to visualize all these data in a single page at application level, making you super productive.Topology ViewerIn a complex environment setup (with multiple BizTalk Servers and SQL Servers), it is very important for the BizTalk Administrator to know the topology of their environment. With BizTalk360, say goodbye to Visio or MS Word to create the infrastructure topology diagrams. BizTalk360 will create these diagrams automatically for you, depending on the current environment configuration at the point of time.
GoldGet all Silver features PLUSData Monitoring (ESB, BAM)
ESB Exception Data MonitoringIf you are using ESB toolkit exception management framework, you may be interested to get alerted when certain conditions are triggered. Example: A particular “Shipping Application” is receiving too many exceptions. BizTalk360 “ESB data monitoring” will help you to monitor for these conditions and alert you.
BAM MonitoringIf your organisation is using BAM for capturing business critical data like KPI metrics, you can use BAM data monitoring to look out for some key events and alert relevant people.Enterprise Notification ChannelsIn addition to the standard notification channels like email, SMS, and writing to event viewers, BizTalk360 comes with few enterprise notification channels like Slack, ServiceNow and HP Operations Manager. It also provides a rich SDK and seamless user interface for building custom notification channels. For example: Executing a PowerShell or calling a REST Web Hooks, etc., can be easily achieved.Webhook ChannelIn addition to the existing custom notification channel like the Slack and ServiceNow in BizTalk360, you can create notification channel using REST channels to get notifications from BizTalk360.MSMQ MonitoringBizTalk360 comes with inbuilt capabilities to monitor MSMQ and helps you to ensure the performance of your messaging service. This includes real time monitoring of queue size, active messages, dead letters, and journal messages in the queue. Monitor all your local and remote queues and set different threshold conditions to alert you.File LocationBizTalk360 now has the capability to monitor the health of File locations based on the File count.FTP/FTPS LocationBizTalk360 now has the capability to monitor the health of FTP/FTPS based on the File count.ESB Exception PortalIt’s full blown replacement to the sample ESB portal that ships with ESB Toolkit. You’ll be able to manage exceptions, edit and resubmit messages, re-submit bulk messages and you can also set monitoring for exceptions conditions.ESB DashboardBizTalk360 combines the power of ESB and BAM to monitor, analyse and improve their ESB integrations to achieve the maximum performance. With the ESB Dashboard, you can view aggregate reports of ESB Fault Count, ESB Resubmissions, and ESB Itineraries in a graphical view.BAM PortalBizTalk360 comes with inbuilt Business Activity Monitoring portal that allows administrators and support people to access the activities and view data stored in BAM database seamlessly. You can also have notification alerts for certain BAM data thresholds.Advanced Event ViewerThe standard event viewer that ships with Windows is not the appropriate tool for diagnosing BizTalk problems. In a multi server BizTalk environment, you’ll need access to event viewers across all the servers. BizTalk360 addresses this challenge by providing a central web access to all the events in the BizTalk environment. You can also attach knowledge base articles to known problems.Team Knowledge BaseIn a middleware platform like BizTalk, there will always be some operational problems. Ex: a partner sending files with wrong datetime format. BizTalk360 allows you to create and attach KB articles for various things like event viewer id’s, suspended service instances, ESB exceptions and throttling condition. It will also intelligently match those KB articles with the exceptions during day-to-day operations, thereby making your team super productive.Secure SQL QueriesNormally, it’s not a good idea to allow support people to have full access to SQL server and system databases like BizTalk Message Box, Tracking etc. BizTalk360 addresses this challenge by providing a platform to store and execute secure queries. A DBA can write valid/efficient SQL queries and provide access to support team.Disaster Recovery ViewerThe only supported way of doing backup and DR in BizTalk server environment is by using the standard SQL jobs and log shipping capabilities. BizTalk360 provides a single page visualizer to check the health of your backup/DR configuration.BHM IntegrationMicrosoft has made some major changes to Message Box Viewer(MBV) and rebranded it as BizTalk Health Monitor(BHM) with a few additional functionalities and deprecated MBV. In version 8.4 we have introduced support for BHM and deprecated MBV support.Tracking ManagerTracking Manager functionality has been improved to enable/disable tracking on the artifacts like Receive Ports, Send Ports, Orchestrations, Schemas, Pipelines, and Policies of the BizTalk Application directly from the BizTalk360 UI.

Trigger history and Run history details are available in both graphical and grid view.Integration Account NewAs a part of increased support for Hybrid Integration, we have introduced an Integration Account feature in BizTalk360. The users can access this feature in operation section under Azure Services. This feature will help the user to view different artifacts like Schemas, Maps, Certificates, Partners and Agreements from Integration account in configured Azure subscriptions.Analytics DashboardsFor pretty much every BizTalk customer, their BizTalk environment is a big black box. They won’t have any visibility of what’s going on in the environment like message volumes, failure rate at ports, CPU/Memory utilization on BizTalk/SQL servers, CPU/Memory utilization of BizTalk processes like Host Instances, Rules Engine, SSO, Base EDI service etc. BizTalk360 extracts lot of information from 100’s of performance counters and represent them in beautiful dashboards. Users can fully customize the dashboards, create multiple ones, have multiple metrics in single chart for comparison etc. Making really a must have dashboard to understand your BizTalk environment.Messaging Patterns
VisualizerIn your BizTalk environment, you’ll have various transaction patterns. Ex: Salesforce connected to SAP, some batch processing, debatching scenarios, scatter/gather patterns etc. BizTalk360 analyses your tracking database and identifies all the various transaction patterns and represents them in a graphical way. On top of that, it overlays some interesting information like message count, execution time, and so on, thereby making it an invaluable information for your support people.Throttling AnalyserUnderstanding throttling conditions in BizTalk requires substantial knowledge of BizTalk underlying architecture and various performance counters. It’s generally a time consuming process to set up counters, collect data over a period and finally analysing it. BizTalk360 address this challenge by providing an easy to access web interface with visual graphs that abstracts all the complexity. It helps organisation to understand the peak capacity, bottlenecks etc., in their BizTalk environment.New Relic PluginNew Relic is widely used by companies as an enterprise wide monitoring solution. It is easy to analyse the data and get insights in real-time. If you are already using New Relic, you can view the performance metrics of the BizTalk server environment across multiple dashboards within New Relic.
