On June the 9th, the Logic Apps team hosted a new Live session covering all updates they have been working on for the last few months. I’m pretty excited about the upcoming release and therefore created a summary including all the changes with some additional commentary.

Get Run Id
Allows you to retrieve the workflow run id from within your Logic App code. This information can be used for tracking issues.
Improved Telemetry via Diagnostics
Client tracking id
The client tracking id enables the option to provide a custom id based on your business data. This is very helpful when in case when something unexpected happens and want investigate further or resubmit the action (no need to open the details of the message, the id should be included within the diagnostics info).
This value needs to be passes as a header within your trigger and will be used across runs and included in diagnostic information. This is something I really looking forward to.

The Enterprise Integration Pack Build on top of Logic Apps and target enterprise scenarios. It includes a rich BizTalk like pipeline called VETER (Validate, Extract, Transform, Enrich and Route).

More detailed information can be found within the sessions of the BizTalk 360 integrate conference.
