Parameters found inside the web.config

CustomProperties

MessageTranslations

Use this property to specify Promoted Tracked Properties that you want to be searchable and shown in the result set always. Multiple properties are delimited by comma. Ex. "Property1, Property2"
Use this property to translate long "BizTalk Message Type names" to more user friendly names. The syntax is as follows: "Namespace#RootName|TranslatedName{CarriageReturn}Namespace2#RootName2#TranslatedName2"

MessageAlerts

PortAlerts

Use this property to set up alerts when expected message types are not received in BizTalk within a given timeframe. Ex. "Namespace#RootName|0|5|0{CarriageReturn}Namespace2#RootName2|1|0|0" (Note the syntax is "messagetype|days|hours|minuttes" so messagetype1 is expected within 5 hours, and messagetype2 within 1 day.
Use this property to set up alerts when expected Ports are not receiving messages in BizTalk within a given timeframe. Ex. "Port1|0|3|30{CarriageReturn}Port2|1|12|0" (Note the syntax is "portname|days|hours|minuttes" so Port1 is expected to received messages within 3,5 hours, and Port2 within 1 day and 12 hours.

maxBodyLength

MessageTypesDaysback

Use this property to specify how many bytes of a Tracked Message body you wish BizTalkTracker to display pr. default. If a message is larger than this property a "show full message" link will appear to show the full message. Note: If a message is very large, it might have a performance hit to show it. You should save it to disk using either "Save Text" or "Save XML" instead.
If you have a small Tracking Database, just set this property to 1000. If you have a large database, this property should be set to the maximum number of days you have set up alerts for.

Timeout

LicenseKey

Specifies how many milliseconds a query towards the Tracking database can elapse, before timing out.
Insert your valid license key here, if not already supplied.
