Managing Tracking for Microsoft BizTalk Server
Dead easy to review and change all tracking related settings for your BizTalk Server environment!
The BizTalk Server Monitoring Agent for Nodinite has built-in support for remotely managing Tracking Settings for Ports, Pipelines and Orchestrations. This feature gives you both an overview as well as easier administration that saves your time (and thereby money).
Since the number of artifacts can grow rather large (many thousands are common) we have grouped the different artifacts by the following Tracking related Categories:
|Receive Ports (One-Way)||Messages are received by one or more Receive Locations, tracking settings are managed on port level|
|Receive Ports (Request/Response)||Messages are received by one or more Receive Locations, tracking settings are managed on port level|
|Send Ports (One-Way)|
|Send Ports (Solicit/Response)|
|Pipelines||Make sure to follow our very recommended 'Recommended tracking settings for default pipelines' user guide|
By using the Nodinite Tracking feature there is NO need to logon to any of the BizTalk Server nodes or use the BizTak Server Management Console (also requiring membership in either the BizTalk Administrators group and/or BizTalk Server Operators). E.g. A non BizTalk Administrator may change these settings remote simply using the Nodinite Web Client.
The following features exists for the Tracking feature:
- Manage Tracking - Review and Set properties that controls run-time behaviour
- Execute Remote Actions - Secure transfer and audit logged operations initiated
Since the different tracking related artifacts in Microsoft BizTalk Server has different properties you will have different options in the different administrative pages depending on Resource (Receive Ports, Send port, ...). All Resources of the Category Tracking has the following Action(s):
- List - Opens a specific administrative page with lists and options
Example of Remote Actions for the Tracking category
Within the administrative pages you will further have the following
- Reload - Reloads the page (discarding pending changes and refreshes content)
- Save - Persists pending changes
- Show Applications - When checked the artifacts are grouped by BizTalk Application name
Note: Pending Changes will be lost
|Example 1: Send Ports grouped by BizTalk Application||Example 2: Send Ports grouped by name|

Manage tracking settings for Pipelines.
You can override port settings by configuring tracking on pipeline level. This is something we at Nodinite discourages you from doing.
