  1. 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.... )

      • 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

        • 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.

            • User Auditing of Administration Events

              Including:

              1. Audit every change to the system (stop/start endpoints, deploy, configure ports/locations, change business rules...)
              sources:
              - https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/dc41e72b-398a-4d13-9cec-a507830522a2/what-i-miss-in-biztalk-2nd-part?forum=biztalkgeneral
              - https://cdijkgraaf.wordpress.com/2016/08/12/biztalk-2013-r2-known-bugs-issues-quirks/

              2. Audit the user who terminates an instance:
              sources:
              - http://geekswithblogs.net/michaelstephenson/archive/2008/04/27/121686.aspx

              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).

              • Native JSON support without the need to convert to XML

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

                • JSON Mapper

                  Add the ability of a JSON mapper that is just like the XML Mapping tool in BizTalk. Altova has an example of something like that and it works great.

                    • Exchange adapter

                      Provide a native Exchange adapter, without requiring the need for an organization to setup Exchange to provide POP3 access. Many organisations are reluctant to setup POP3 just for integration, and often ask why this is necessary when both BizTalk and Exchange are MS product.

                      • Project/Item template for a pipeline component

                        Creating pipeline component is very common, it will be great to have a template in visual studio to implement pipeline component class for different stages. It will increase development productivity with reduced time to write code which is similar in most of the component

                          It should be time to finish enabling these Adapters to 64 bit so we can eliminate 32bit hosts and simplify deployments

                          • Improve the FTP adapter log file contents

                            The FTP adapter has the ability to log the commands into a predefined text file.
                            The file however does not contain any timestamp information, has no mentioning of session information, etc...

                            Better would be:
                            - Include the timestamp of a command
                            - Include IP addresses
                            - Allow to have a property for a maximum file size and have it roll over, to prevent log files becoming too big.

                              • Add the ReceiveLocationName to the System-Properties schema

                                The global Property ReceiveLocationName doesn't exist in the http://schemas.microsoft.com/BizTalk/2003/system-properties schema. So it can't be used in filters or orchestration properties forcing users to create ReceivePorts to allow them to filter on the property. Instead, this missing property should be added to the global schemas to allow developers and administrators to use it.

                                  When you are in the mapping designer if would save us time to be able to add an additional schemas to either the source or the destination.
                                  Currently the only way I know of to create a map with multi source or destination schemas is through the Orchestration Designer in the Transform shape

                                  • Prevent rebuild each time a test is run

                                    Each time Visual Studio is requested to execute a unit test through MS Test within a BizTalk project, then a build is first executed. This is very time consuming and a real productivity killer! There should be no need for the rebuild if nothing in the BizTalk project has changed.

                                    It may be the cause of this problem is that BizTalk projects are changing the .user file?

                                    Hopefully, this issue can be resolved with a relatively simple fix.

                                    • Ports (ReceiveLocations / SendPorts) sorting in Admin Console

                                      BizTalk should support shorting in ReceiveLocation / SendPort by name or by URI and remember that change, so if user makes any change on port then it should not rearrange. If no then atleast after any change on ports it should not rearrange back to default shorting. Many customers have more than 100 ports and if they have to change in 10-15 ports then it's very difficult them to rearrange every-time and do the changes. It is working fine on BizTalk 2010 version.
