APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When using the WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition MQ Explorer
    plugin to create a monitor that uses the $CURRENTTIMESTAMP
    variable, the variable inserted into the transfer XML is
    misspelled, and subsequently the variable is not substituded for
    the current timestamp as expected. This can cause the transfer
    to fail.
    

Local fix

  • Use the command line to create the transfer instead of the
    GUI .
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition Version
    7.0.4.1 with the 7.0.4.1 new function enabled, and all users
    of 7.5.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The constant used for the variable in the MQ Explorer was
    spelt incorrectly. As a result the MQ Explorer could not be used
    to create a monitor that uses the CURRENTTIMESTAMP variable.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This APAR corrects the spelling.
