Error description

  • The WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer parameter,
    "coordinationSubscriptionTopic", introduced by APAR IC76641 was
    implemented only for command line tools such as fteListAgents.
    
    WebSphere MQ Explorer is unable to make use of this new
    parameter.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of:
    - The WebSphere MQ File Transfer v7.0.4 plug-in to WebSphere
    MQ Explorer
    - The WebSphere MQ Managed File transfer plug-in to WebSphere MQ
    Explorer
    - The "fteListTemplates" command supplied with WebSphere MQ File
    Transfer and WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer
    
    who have configured their file transfer environment to make
    use of a non-default Subscription Topic, via use of the
    "coordinationSubscriptionTopic" property.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The IBM WebSphere MQ Message File Transfer "fteListTemplates"
    command and the IBM WebSphere MQ Explorer MFT plugin subscribe
    to the topic "SYSTEM.FTE" by default.
    
    This behaviour can be altered by the use of a new property,
    introduced by APAR IC76641, called
    "coordinationSubscriptionTopic", which changes the
    subscription topic which the tooling uses.
    
    There was no mechanism in place to use this property within
    the WebSphere MQ Explorer, or the "fteListTemplates" command,
    which meant that these tools could only operate with the use
    of the default topic "SYSTEM.FTE" regardless of the value
    assigned to the "coordinationSubscriptionTopic".
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been changed to allow the fteListTemplates
    command and the WebSphere MQ Explorer FTE/MFT plugin to use a
    different topic to subscribe to if the
    "coordinationSubscriptionTopic" has been set in the
    coordination.properties file.
