  1. Enhancing REST capability in BizTalk

    Ability to expose receive location or service with REST to support GET, POST and swagger support. And perhaps a Wizard type of tool like BizTalk WCF one to create a RESTful endpoint in BizTalk.

    • Visual Studio 2017 support for BizTalk 2016 projects

      There are lots of improvements that would be great for BizTalk delivery teams to take advantage of.

        Historically we add support for newer versions of Visual Studio in the next version of BizTalk and that is the current plan. As to the next version of BizTalk – we are doing our roadmap planning and it will likely be available in 2019 with a CTP version available at some point in 2018. These dates are tentative as of December 2017 and I will update when we have further information.

        • Repair and resubmit

          Enable the ability to repair and resubmit suspended or failed messages. This can be done using the ESB Toolkit, but it would be best if this was a feature available natively within the BizTalk admin console.

          • Remove 5 Application limit in Standard Edition

            As the inability to form a multi server group is currently the defining decision point for customers to choose Standard or Enterprise, the 5 application limit is now a reason for pour deployment and development choices.

            By removing the limit the most significant distinction between versions is still there and developers no longer have to custom-script fine grained deployment on standard edititions.

            Also, a customer upgrading to Enterprise edition does not have to revisit deployment and development standards as they now should align.

            • A new BizTalk group with only Read permissions

              For troubleshooting purposes we need to give access to the production environment to developers, who are not part of the Operations team.

              The BizTalk Operators group is not suitable for this since it allows members to make start and stop BizTalk endpoints, host instances and delete messages. Also, members do not see the actual properties in some scenarios.

              We would like a "Viewers" group which are able to see everything including messages but not able to start and stop Biztalk artifacts.

              • Custom Orchestration Shapes

                Possibility to create custom Shapes. Just like we do for the Pipeline components.

                So we can add Generic stuff (logging,....) in a shape and reuse it. Instead of writing always the same .NET code, also maintaining that shape or all the expressions with the custom code ( I don't need to say more.... )

                • SQL Server 2017 support for BizTalk Server 2016

                  SQL Server 2017 supports distributed transactions for databases in availability groups. This support includes databases on the same instance of SQL Server or databases on different instances of SQL Server. Adding support for SQL Server 2017 in the current version of BizTalk would simplify setting up HA environments both on-Prem and in Azure.

                  • Better support for BAM

                    Better support for BAM (Business Activity Monitoring) in terms of better out-of box support for development toolset (no Excel-AddIn to create observation model), update portal to view (out-of-box support to may be PowerBI for on-premise SQL Servers- BAM db), simplified database structure and easier to manage db and infrastructure

                    • Swagger Support to service published/Consumed as Rest in BizTalk

                      We can use WCF Service Publishing Wizard to generate a REST endpoint - (while publishing the service endpoint using WCF Service Publishing Wizard, we can set the transport type (adapter name) for service endpoint as "WCF-WebHttp"). It would be nice to add swagger support to the exposed end point.

                      Also it would be nice to consume to a service using Swagger as used to do with WSDL/SOAP

                      • SSO Affiliate Applications support for native SFTP adapter

                        Most of the native adapters include support for SSO Affiliate Applications which make re-installations a lot easier since one does not have to set passwords manually. For some reason, native SFTP adapter does not currently have support for this feature and from administrations point of view, this is a problem.

                        • Orchestration subscription filter editing at run-time

                          Enhance orchestration subscription filters to use the same model as send ports, whereby the filters can be edited at run-time.

                          Changing the orchestration filters at present requires a “code change” and redeployment, which increases the risk associated with making the change. This is also an inconsistent approach, when compared to the way in which filters are managed for send ports.

                          • Out of the box testing capabilities for BizTalk artifacts.

                            Currently testing out of the box is limited to schema and mappings. To have similar capability for pipelines and orchestration that would increase productivity.

                            • Read message context properties inside maps

                              Today in BizTalk, it is not possible (out-of-the-box) to read a context property inside a map.
                              It could be very useful to have a functoid to read the message context.

                              • Improvement to BizTalk Development tool-set in Visual Studio

                                BizTalk Development tool-set in Visual Studio hasn't been improved much for long time now. Nino's BizTalk NoS Addin included various feature to improve the development experience for BizTalk in specific. Similar features, specific to BizTalk development could be added to Visual Studio out-of-box.

                                One simple example which is been long pending even after various request is to have resize, color code feature request for the Expression editor in Orchestration designer. They might trivial, but improves the development experience a lot.

                                      Whilst BizTalk360 offers auditing capabilities, it can only audit activities that users perform via BizTalk360. It does not capture actions performed via other routes (Admin Console, Scripts, etc).

                                        BizTalk should support JSON documents OOTB without the need to convert them to XML.

                                        • Remove forced dependancy checks on Schema and Maps like ESB does

                                          How many times do you have to remove a full Application or many applications just to update a schema or map?
                                          The ESB toolkit largely removes this by using the strong name of assemblies in the rules / text.
