Orchestration category

The Nodinite BizTalk Monitoring Agent monitors BizTalk Orchestrations from all BizTalk Applications. New (and/or removed) Orchestrations are automatically detected and managed by the monitoring agent.

  • Orchestrations in BizTalk are listed within Nodinite as resources where the name is the same as the Orchestration name.
  • Nodinite has the same notion of an Application where there is a 1:1 mapping with its BizTalk Application
  • Orchestrations are grouped by the Category Orchestration
