In this section, we will see how to set up multiple types of alarms within BizTalk360. Let's get started with the preliminary step of alarm export/import functionality, i.e. to be able to create multiple alarms for different business requirements.


Creating an alarm

To create an alarm in BizTalk360, you need to follow the steps below (general instructions):

Select For Health Check Notification to create the current alarm specific to being able to receive health check alerts. Select For Data Monitoring to create the current alarm specific to data monitoring
  6. Select For Consolidated Monitoring to create an alarm for threshold monitoring, health check notification, and data monitoring
  7. If you choose For Threshold Monitoring,
    1. Enter a descriptive name for the Alarm, Email id (you can enter multiple email ids as comma separated values), and Alarm Description
    2. Click Next to enter the Threshold Alarm page
    3. Turn on 'Alert on threshold violation' button if you want to be alerted upon a threshold violation.
