When you read the description of this new service in the Bluemix catalog, you’ll see it says the following:-
Manage MQ your way
Manage your cloud-based queue managers with the tools you know and love – including MQ Explorer, the MQ Console, or via MQ Script Commands (MQSC).
Once you have created your MQ on IBM Cloud Service and Queue Manager, as shown in the above video, and your queue manager is up and running, you’ll have a view something like this.
Click on the three vertical dots on the right of your queue manager to “Download Connection info”, or alternatively view the details of your queue manager and then there is a button there too which allows you to download the “Connection Information”. Either way, you’ll be presented with a pop-up which allows you to download a plain text file which contains the queue manager name, hostname, port number and a couple of channel names, one called an Application Channel and one called an Administration Channel.
In order to remotely connect to your IBM Cloud queue manager you will also need to be able to log in. As the MQ on IBM Cloud documentation describes here, you need the API key as your password to go with the user id ‘admin’. Follow the instructions on that page to obtain your API key.
Now you have all the pieces of information you need to set up any of the MQGem Software tools to administer your queue manager on IBM Cloud. As a reminder, these are the things you will need.
|Queue Manager Name||You invented it when you created the queue manager. If you’ve forgotten it, it’s also in the text file you downloaded with the connection information.|
|Channel Name||The “Administration channel name” can be found in the text file you downloaded with the connection information.|
|Connection Name||This is built by concatenating the “Hostname” and “Listener port” details (with brackets round the port number) that can be found in the text file you downloaded with the connection information.|
|User ID||This is ‘admin’|
|Password||This is the API Key that you created by following the linked instructions.|
On the pages that follow, we cover how to use the above information you have gathered in your table to configure each of our tools to connect to your IBM MQ in IBM Cloud Queue Manager. Go directly to the page for the tool you want to use, or page through each one in turn.
If you don’t have a licence and would like to try out any of our tools then send an email, noting which tool you’d like to try, to firstname.lastname@example.org and a 1-month trial licence will be sent to you.
