    • Allow variable as input to maps

      When you create a map it would be very handy to use a variable or a .NET class as either an input or an output

      • Starting and stopping multiple applications should work, even when they depend on each other

        When you currently select multiple applications to start or stop, you get:

        1) multiple dialog boxes, asking to start/stop each individual application, regardless of dependency. Better would be to have only one start/stop dialog box, covering all of the applications at once.

        2) There is no check on dependencies between them. Selecting multiple dependent applications to stop for example, may end up stopping applications only to see them resulting in error, because the order that the Admin Console chose to stop them in does not reflect the references/dependencies between them.

        This is frustrating to say the least, because now we…

        • Enable support to store BizTalk backups into Azure blob storage

          SQL Server allows to store backups into Azure blob storage for a while now. Support for backup/restore into/from Azure blob storage or even Azure file share would be very handy!

          • Map parameters

            Expose XSLT parameters on the interface of maps, to allow for higher reusability. The parameters should be available on 'transform' shapes in the orchestration designer. They could also be part of the configuration of maps in send ports and receive ports, and the configuration could be exported with the application bindings. Default values could be set in the map designer.

              • Retry interval should be more flexible, using seconds (ex. 3 retries. 10 seconds interval).

                In some scenarios, we would benefit from retries for common temporary errors, but cannot use them because we must complete the scenario in a restricted time (inside 1 minute)

                We should be able to configure retry interval with seconds, not only minutes.

                      • FILE adapter support for empty files

                        The FILE adapter should be updated to be able to pick-up empty files. This is a requirement for quite a few flows I have seen over the years and is not possible with the out of the box FILE adapter. As a consultant, customers have a hard time believing this is not possible.

                        • View specific port/orch bindings

                          Instead of exporting bindings, it would really speed things up if I could right-click on a port or orchestration and View Bindings instead (as text). This way I could copy and paste right into my BTDF master binding file.

                          • Provide a Collapse All button in the Policy Explorer in BRE Composer

                            On opening the Microsoft Business Rule Composer application, by default the trees in the Policy Explorer and Facts Explorer panes are fully expanded.

                            This is really unhelpful when you have a large number of policies/vocabulaties to navigate through. A simple button or context menu item to toggle Expand All/Collapse All in each of the panes would be really welcome.

                                  Currently on an order delivery send port it’s very time consuming to find top n messages as it requires to run a query from console based on the time stamp, and if time stamp is not known then often we need to retrieve all messages on any send port instance to check top messages by sorting on time.
                                  It will be great to have a feature to say show me top n messages on ordered delivery send port. E.g. right click menu should give that option or an option in query window of console.

                                    • Force retry on dehydrated message

                                      It would be nice to be able to force a retry on a dehydrated message so you don't have to wait for a retry to occur in order to send a message.

                                      • Enable full resizable dialog windows in BizTalk WCF (and WS) Service Publishing Wizard and Search

                                        When you are trying to publish schemas or orchestrations as a service using BizTalk WCF Service Publishing Wizard or BizTalk Web Services Service Publishing Wizard, all the windows but in special, the windows where you describe the WCF Service and the Windows that you select the schemas doesn’t not able to resize it.
                                        For a better overview, better user experience and to be more productive you should make this dialog windows resizable.
                                        Also, it would be amazing to have search capabilities in the “Request Message Type” window, that would improve developers productivity.

                                        • Allow easy concurrency control

                                          BizTalk should allow easy concurrency control on orchestration and send ports. Currently the only way to control it is either through sequential convoy pattern (which makes it singleton) or to use level of throttling. The throttling mechanism is not easy to configure and does not work as desired all the time in consistent manner. It will be great to provide an option to set on orchestration or send port to define the max number of instances which can be run at a time concurrently. This will be a game changing feature as many time down stream system are not capable…
