Bug Fixes

Reported Issue Comments/Fix Provided Section in BizTalk360
Column name (Duration) was missing in BizTalk360 but available in BAM portal The column name (Execution time) available in BAM portal was missing in the BAM Column list in BizTalk360. This issue is fixed now and the user will be able to see the Duration.

We also fixed another issue where a Super User (with access to BAM Activity) was receiving an exception message when trying to edit the BAM Data Monitor.The exception message will no longer appear for the user from this version.
Operations> Data Access> Business Activity Monitoring
Tool tip not displaying the full message The tool tip displaying the message in MBV was limited to few (say 500) characters and the users couldn't view the full message. This issue is fixed now by adding a property icon for MBV. Operations> Health Check Tools> Message Box Viewer
No visual cue if the page loading for a long time Users had no visual indication when page load took a long time due to the large amount of data in the database. We have enabled a visual cue at top of the page. Operations> Data Access> Business Activity Monitoring
Mismatch in Tracking Pipeline properties Changes to Tracking properties through BizTalk admin console was not reflected in BizTalk360 causing a mismatch. This issue is fixed now and the Tracking details are reflected correctly in the properties section Operations> Infrastructure Settings> Tracking Manager
Issue in handling Web Endpoint logic This situation occurred when there were over 50 web endpoints being monitored. When the server is rebooted, customer was receiving a batch of endpoint exceptions all at once. This was because the failures are handled differently in BizTalk360, and it resulted in a race condition to kick in. This issue has been fixed and parallel processing has been implemented in web endpoints. This will allow batch processing to be done. Monitoring > Manage Mapping > BizTalk Environment > Web Endpoints
Inappropriate Verify button in Gateway settings screen The Verify button has been removed. Clicking Save will automatically verify the gateway settings before saving the data. Settings> Gateway/Proxy Settings
Incorrect validation message while submitting a new message When the user tries to resubmit the text/plain message using the WCF-On ramp or SOAP On-Ramp the message, the system displayed incorrect validation message. This issue is fixed now and correct validation will be displayed Operations> ESB Portal> ESB Exception Data 
Wrong health status in global node of graphical tree view If any of the node in the graphical tree view goes RED, and there is a Warning (Yellow) state as well, the global node shows Yellow instead of Red . This issue is fixed and the global node will display the correct status.
Monitoring> Home
Unable to view the orphaned NT service When a configured NT service was removed or renamed, the artifact moved to the Orphaned state, but the status was not reflected as 'No longer exist" in the dashboard. This issue is now fixed and when an NT service is in the orphaned state, the status will display as No longer exist in the dashboard.
Monitoring > Home > Manage Mapping > BizTalk Servers > NT Services
Scroll does not work in Secure SQL queries when selecting a query The user was unable to scroll through the list of queries when there are lot of saved SQL queries. This issue is fixed and the scroll will work as expected for secure SQL queries. Operations > Data Access > Secure SQL queries
After opening a saved Query expression, the results don’t match the filter In Advanced Event Viewer, when the user saves a query and re-opens the query (for the first time), the results did not match the filter. This issue is fixed and the query filter displays the result as expected. Operations> Data Access> Advanced Event Viewer
Users without permissions were able to edit and execute queries Users without permissions to edit the query were still able to do so by making the changes in the query editor pane and selecting the query (again) from the drop down. By doing so, the query results section reflected the results of the modified query. This issue is fixed and users without permissions to edit the query will no longer be able to edit the query. Operations > Data Access > Secure SQL queries
Table [dbo].[b360_alert_AttachmentsToClear] needs the primary key altered The table [dbo].[b360_alert_AttachmentsToClear] has the primary key set on its name. This causes an exception when data monitoring tries to insert a new row with the same name. This results in failure of MBQ data monitoring execution. This issue is now fixed and the Primary Key Constraint error no longer appears. BizTalk360 Database
Unable to download more than 10 instances on IE browser (versions) Users were unable to download more than 10 service instances from the Message Box Queries using an Internet Explorer browser (IE 9, 10, 11).
