Error description

  • Using WebSphere MQ Explorer V7.1 a user who is not a member of
    the MQ Administration group cannot see the desired queue manager
    in the list of local queue managers, even when the corresponding
    setmqaut has the proper authorities and even after
    "Refresh Security" is issued:
    setmqaut -m QmgrName -t qmgr -p UserId +dsp +connect +inq
    
    When using MQ Explorer V7.0 under the same circumstances,
    the user is able to see the queue manager in the list of
    queue managers.
    

Local fix

  • In the local queue manager an MQ Administrator can issue the
    following commands to allow the non administrator userid
    to connect to the queue manager:
    .
    setmqaut -m <QMGR name> -t qmgr -p <userid> +connect +inq +dsp
    setmqaut -m <QMGR name> -t q -n SYSTEM.DEFAULT.MODEL.QUEUE
      -p <userid>  +inq +browse +get
    setmqaut -m <QMGR name> -t q -n SYSTEM.MQEXPLORER.REPLY.MODEL
      -p <userid> +inq +browse +get +put
    .
    Then the non-administrator user can add the local queue
    manager as a remote queue manager in the MQ Explorer V7.1.

    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    In WebSphere MQ Explorer V7.1 a user who is not a member of
    the MQ Administration group cannot see and manage the desired
    queue manager in the list of local queue managers, even when the
    corresponding setmqaut has the proper authorities, and even
    after "Refresh Security" is issued.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been altered to allow a user with the proper
    authority, who is not a member of the MQ Administration group,
    to see and manage the desired queue manager from WebSphere MQ
    Explorer.
