Security settings for MQ exit resources

If you have enabled security for the queue manager, you must configure certain security settings in the queue manager for the HCL OneTest™ API MQ exit resources to access the HCL OneTest™ API intercept queue.

Recording authorities

To successfully do recording, stubbing and topology discovery of MQ resources when using the HCL OneTest™ API MQ API Exit, the following MQ authorities must be granted to the following users:
  • HCL OneTest™ API user. The MQ Username as configured in the MQ physical transport within HCL OneTest™ API.
  • Putting application user. The MQ Username used by applications when performing an MQ PUT to the queues being recorded, stubbed, or discovered.
Note: Before changing the queue manager authorities, use the dmpmqaut command to back up the existing queue manager authorities.
