Grant permissions in IBM MQ using the setmqaut command

These examples are based on a Linux system. Switch to the mqm user.

su - mqm

 

The setmqaut command is used to add or remove permissions from a users account. In this example, user JohnDoe is given the "connect" and "inq" permissions to queue manager MANAGER01. This assumes that the "mqm" users .bash_profile has been updated to have PATH=$PATH:<root installation directory>/bin.

setmqaut -m MANAGER01 -t qmgr -p JohnDoe +connect
setmqaut -m MANAGER01 -t qmgr -p JohnDoe +inq

 

The -n option can be used to add or remove permissions from a queue. In this example, JohnDoe is allowed to GET PUT BROWSE and INQUIRE on QUEUE01. Notice this command is issued twice, once against "QUEUE01" and then again aginst "MANAGER01.QUEUE01.QUEUE". The second command ensures that the queue alias is updated as well.

setmqaut -m MANAGER01 -n QUEUE01 -t queue -p JohnDoe -all +put +get +browse +inq
setmqaut -m MANAGER01 -n MANAGER01.QUEUE01.QUEUE -t queue -p JohnDoe -all +put +get +browse +inq

 

The dspmqaut command can be used to display JohnDoe's permssions to MANAGER01 and QUEUE01.

Start the MQSC utility.

runmqsc MANAGER01

Exit the MQSC utility.
