How can we improve Microsoft Azure Logic Apps?

Connector "Alternative Bindings" to support Dev\CI testing

There are many connectors that are currently difficult to repoint to stubs/mocks. I would like to see connectors exposing “alternative binding” properties to support testing in development and continuous-integration.

I am used to developing integration solutions following Behaviour Driven Development techniques utilising stubs. The behaviour of these stubs can be controlled by SpecFlow steps and the data received validated too. It would be good to be able to port these techniques to the delivery of LogicApps to ensure quality and traceability back to requirements.

        We really need a way to run automated tests over logic apps. Please give this some consideration Microsoft.
