We were building a Dashboard for a larger ESB solution and would like to display some runtime status from Neuron ESB. Which instances were installed, instance status, endpoints etc. This is all information which is quite easy to fetch using Neuron ESB REST API. Default, this is available from the following URL: http://localhost:51002/help/ui/index.html The services [...]

Neuron has a quite powerful and sometimes overlooked feature to securely store environment specific configurations such as URLs, Access Control lists and other parameters.

We have worked on a large variety of integration projects for the last 15 years using various platforms dating back to BizTalk 2002.
