BizTalk360 Cloud allows Account Owners/Super Users to configure BizTalk environments that need to be monitored. When you log into your BizTalk360 Cloud account for the first time, the dashboard will not have any environments configured by default. The Account Owners/Super Users need to add environment(s) that they wish to monitor. Once the environment(s) are added you can create alarms and start monitoring the artifacts in BizTalk360 Cloud. In this article, we have covered;


When you add a new environment to your BizTalk360 Cloud account, the environment will be created along with a demo alarm, if you have enough free artifacts on your plan.

We have introduced the concept of Demo Alarm to give you a feel of how the UI will look when you actually create an alarm and configure the monitoring for the environment. The demo alarm will be configured with up to 4 artifacts (receive location, orchestration, send ports, and host instances) from any of the applications in your environment. The demo alarm can be reconfigured or deleted as per your requirement.

The count of artifacts that are mapped in the demo alarm will be automatically deducted from the count (of artifacts) offered by your subscription plan. For ex., if you are on a Free plan (10 artifacts), the 4 artifacts mapped to the demo alarm will be deducted from the count of 10 and you will only have 6 artifacts remaining that can be mapped further.
