|VOLUME VIII. – No. 9.||FRIDAY, 30 SEPTEMBER, 2022||PRICE: FREE|
Welcome to the September edition of the MQGem Monthly Newsletter, bringing you company news from MQGem Software, information about the MO71, MQSCX, MQEdit, MQEV, Q and QLOAD products, our IBM MQ training modules, and interesting articles about IBM MQ.
A minor update to MQEdit was released this month providing two features that help to reduce the number of Command Not Auth events and errors that are generated.
- A queue prefix can be supplied, so instead of retrieving the whole list of queues, the MQEdit user can only retrieve a subset starting with the provided prefix.
- An option to use Inquire Queue Names instead of Inquire Queues is provided. This means no Command Not Auth events and errors are generated, but does mean that the current depth of queues cannot be shown in the list, and that temporary dynamic queues cannot be excluded.
A new version of MO71 was released with two customer requested features.
- Prompt for KDB passwords – read more here.
- Option to export in MQSC on one-line, rather than over multiple lines.
