JNDI and connection settings

JNDI and connection settings are configured under the Settings tab when you configure a JMS broker. After you complete the settings, you can click Test Transport to verify the settings.

Note: All of the configuration fields allow the use of tags. You can select them from the menu or enter them manually, except for the Password field, where you must enter tags manually (for example, %%JMS_password%%). Because this field is encrypted, characters are masked when you enter them.
