You can read a quick summary of each feature below.
Azure Logic Apps Operations
You can now manage your Azure Logic Apps right inside BizTalk360 user interface. This eliminates the need to log in to the Azure Portal to perform basic operations on the Logic Apps. Users can perform operations such as Enable, Disable, Run Trigger and Delete on the Logic App. In addition to performing the basic operations, users can view the trigger history and run history information in a nice graphical and grid view. We are making further investments in Azure Logic Apps management and monitoring, to give customers a single management console for both BizTalk and the Cloud. Read More.
Webhook Notification Channel
The new webhook notification channel allows you to send structure alert notification (JSON format) to any REST endpoints whenever there is a monitoring violation. This opens up interesting scenarios like calling an Azure Logic App and doing further processing. Read More.
The new ESB dashboard allows you to aggregate different ESB reports into a single graphical dashboard that will help business users and support people to visualize the data in a better way. BizTalk360 has 13 different widgets that will help users to understand the ESB integrations better and help to analyze data to improve the performance. The widgets are categorized as –
- Fault code widgets (based on application, service or error type)
- Fault code over time widgets
- Itinerary Widgets
EDI Reporting Manager
The EDI reporting manager allows your to turn on/turn off reporting for each agreement in a single click. Performing this task in the BizTalk Admin Console is a tedious task especially when there are many parties and agreements. Similarly, administrators can perform bulk enable/disable operations on the NRR configuration. Administrators can add the Host Partner information required to configure the host party for NRR configurations.
EDI Reporting Dashboard
In version 8.3, out of the box, we are providing a rich EDI dashboard to aggregate different EDI transactions that help business users and support persons to visualize the data in a better way. You can also create your own EDI Reporting dashboard with three different widget categories we ship –
- EDI Interchange Aggregation widgets
- EDI Transaction Set aggregation widgets
- AS2 messaging aggregation reports
BizTalk360 has a few aggregations (as widgets) that are not available in BizTalk Admin Console reports such as Interchange Count by Agreement Name (Top 10), Interchange count by Partner Name (Top 10), Transaction count by ACK Status (Filtered by partner id), AS2 messaging aggregation reports.
EDI Functional Acknowledgement
In a standard B2B scenario, whenever a message (with multiple functional groups) is sent from source to destination, it is quite obvious that the source will expect a technical acknowledgment (TA1) and functional acknowledgment (997) for each functional group. What if the technical acknowledgment is received but not the functional acknowledgment? Taking a look at the status of functional acknowledgment is not an easy job with BizTalk Admin Console. With BizTalk360, administrators can easily view the status of functional acknowledgments within the grid and also set up data monitoring alerts whenever negative functional acknowledgments are received.
