Yesterday (12 November 2013) was the new version of BizTalk 2013 released so I was very curious what the new design is because it's not longer created in Silverlight but with HTML5. Let's see how you have to install it and how it looks!
I had already a virtual machine with BizTalk 2013 on it making a number of steps were already done. Also IIS was installed on this machine.
Make sure the account you are going to use during installation is part of the following groups:
In addition SELECT permission need to be granted to the service account for tables in the BizTalkMgmtDb database.
GRANT SELECT ON dbo.adm_OtherDatabases TO BTS_ADMIN_USERS GRANT SELECT ON dbo.adm_Server2HostMapping TO BTS_ADMIN_USERS GRANT SELECT ON dbo.adm_ServiceClass TO BTS_ADMIN_USERS GRANT SELECT ON dbo.BizTalkDbVersion TO BTS_ADMIN_USERS GRANT SELECT ON dbo.adm_BackupHistory TO BTS_ADMIN_USERS
For BizTalk Server 2013: GRANT SELECT ON dbo.bts_dynamicport_subids TO BTS_ADMIN_USERS GRANT SELECT ON dbo.bts_dynamic_sendport_handlers TO BTS_ADMIN_USERS
After installation is BizTalk360 automatically started. You're now almost ready to use it but first you have to set the License Key. To maximize the capabilities of BizTalk360 you also have to configure the Environment.
After the License Key is updated you can start using BizTalk360. There are many options so here are some screens to give you an impression.
I really like the new 7.0 version. The navigation is clear, it's fast and the design is pretty. It would be nice to also have a dynamic layout for big screens (On the BizTalk360 blog is noted that they are considering it for a future version) but it is a job well done!
