WebSphere MQ settings tab (Source)

Use this tab to configure a WebSphere MQ source.

WebSphere MQ is a message queuing system designed by IBM that runs on many platforms such as Windows, Unix, Linux, and z/OS. Output Manager provides an interface into that queuing system. Output Manager can then communicate (send and receive messages) with other applications using WebSphere MQ.

This source will receive WebSphere MQ messages. You can access this tab when you create or configure a WebSphere MQ source.

Important: To use this destination, you must install a WebSphere MQ client separately.

Queue manager — Specifies the name of the queue manager. This must match the queue manager specified in WebSphere MQ. The queue manager administers the queues that have been created on it (these are known as local queues).

Queue name — Specifies the queue name where messages received by this source will be stored. This must match the queue name specified in WebSphere MQ. The queue name along with the name of its queue manager, provides a unique address where messages can be received.

Channel name — Each WebSphere MQ queue manager has different types of connectivity options. Since Output Manager uses TCPIP for the channel connection, you must specify the channel configured for TCPIP. You can get this name from the WebSphere MQ list of channels.

Warning: Make sure the SSL certificate required option is not selected in WebSphere MQ. Output Manager does not support this at this time.

Connection name — Specifies the connection name. The connection name is the IP address and (port) or DNS name for the server to which you are attempting to connect. Messages are transferred over the connection and placed in the queue.
