MQGem Software is pleased to announce that a new version of MO71, our GUI Administrative tool for IBM MQ, is now available.
The main features of the release are as follows:-
Support for MQ Command Level 900
As normal with a new release of IBM MQ, there is a new command level. MO71 now supports this new command level and its contents.
Work with Advanced Message Security (AMS) Protection Policies
You can now define, update and delete AMS Protection Policies. Other aspects of MO71 have also been updated accordingly to deal with these policies, for example updates to Default Lists and Usage Tailoring. Read more about this feature in MO71 – AMS Policy Commands.
Support of CCDT URL
MQ V9 allows a connecting application to specify the URL location of the CCDT file to use. This field can be specified in the location dialog. Read more about this feature in Using the CCDT URL
Show last monitor time on main window
If you wish you can display the last time (or elapsed time) that a response was received from a Queue Manager that is monitored.
Changing multiple objects can now belong to different Queue Managers
If multiple objects are selected from a list and those objects belong to different Queue Managers then the resulting dialog will qualify each object with their owning Queue Manager. It is now possible, for example, to change the maximum depth of multiple queues on multiple Queue Managers with a single click. Or alternatively you can stop/start multiple channels on different Queue Managers with a single press of a button. Read more about this feature in Changing multiple objects at once.
Changing multiple objects is reflected in the dialog title bar
The text [Multiple Objects] will be shown in the title bar in this case.
Exporting lists now has a new ‘All Fields’ checkboxPreviously, when exporting from a list of objects, only the fields which were actually in the list would be exported. This is useful for certain types of displays, such as text and CSV. However, for MQSC this can mean that you would get an incomplete object definition. A new ‘All fields’ checkbox now allows you to request that all the object fields are exported.
New Buffer Pool and Page Set dialogs displayable
MO71 now supports the display of z/OS Buffer Pool and Page Set objects. Read more about this feature in View Buffer Pool and Pageset Usage via MO71.
