Enlist action for Orchestrations
From Monitor Views where you are granted access and where BizTalk Orchestrations are included and Remote Actions are allowed You can use the Nodinite Web Client to Enlist selected BizTalk Server Orchestration.
To Enlist Orchestrations, the following options are available with Nodinite
- Use the Action button menu item Enlist (as described on this page)
- Use the Enlist button available from within the Details modal
- Use the Auto healing feature - use with care!
To Enlist a BizTalk Server Orchestration, press the Action button menu item on the selected row and select Enlist:
Enlist Orchestration button menu item
The user will then be prompted with a question to continue the Enlist operation:
Confirmation dialogue when enlisting an Orchestration
Then the result of the operation will be displayed for the user:
Example of successful enlist operation
Note: A Stopped Orchestration is the same thing (state) as an Enlisted Orchestration
Example when Enlist operation failed, in this case due to that no host handler has been assigned
If Enlisted, the BizTalk Server Orchestration will be evaluated as being in the Warning state:
It is possible to have Nodinite issue the Enlist, Start, Stop or [Unenlist][SPUnenlist] command automatically for you, and this topic is further detailed in the Auto Healing user guide. This feature can be utilized to keep selected BizTalk Server Orchestrations in the intended run-time state.
TIP: Using Auto Healing keeps your BizTalk environment in the intended state
- The Orchestration must be in any of the following states:
- Started (in which case the Enlist operation is also a Stop operation)
Make sure to configure the Orchestrations first.
- Bindings must be properly configured
- Host assigned
- Port bindings must be set if applicable
