With the traditional BizTalk Rules Composer feature, the process is long and tedious when it comes to saving/publishing and deploying the business rules. From version 8.0 "Business Rules Composer" comes out-of-the-box with the product, with this feature,the business user no longer needs to contact IT to add/modify a rule and publish/deploy them. Any user who has access to Business Rules Composer can create new rules, save, publish and deploy policy directly to the production environment.

So, it becomes important to track the changes made in the business rules and as well as keep an eye on who is performing any activities in the business rules composer. BizTalk360 has the inbuilt capacity to record the user activities performed in the rules composer. The Super users, by default can view the audit logs in the Governance-Audit section. Super users also have the ability to authorize normal users from the User Access Policy section to view the Governance/Auditing information.

Users can narrow down their search by selecting the appropriate filter parameters such as Operation, Policy name, Policy version, Timestamp and User name.

The below screenshot sliders show how the audit logs are captured when a user deploy, undeploy and delete rule that is previously saved.
