APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In WMQ Explorer the New Transfer panel for the Managed File
    Transfer (MFT) plugin does not function / paint properly when a
    Sterling File Gateway (SFG) agent is used. The dialogue box
    never allows the file / item selection for the transfer and the
    Finish button does not become available. The panel's
    performance is also negatively affected.
    

Local fix

  • Use fteCreateTransfer from a command prompt.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of:
    - The WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition (FTE) v7.0.4 plugin for
    WebSphere MQ Explorer
    - WebSphere MQ Explorer v7.5
    who are using a Sterling File Gateway Agent.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows, Linux on x86-64, Linux on x86
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When using the WebSphere MQ Explorer plugin for FTE/MFT and
    the additional function for 7.0.4.1 has been enabled then the
    create file transfer wizards will produce unpredictable
    behaviour. This behaviour occurs only when the Agent selected is
    a Sterling File Gateway Agent.
    
    The behaviour seen will stop an transfer being created via the
    Explorer plugin as the Explorer panels do not show the correct
    details when navigating through the wizard.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The FTE/MFT WMQ Explorer plugin wizards have been updated to
    render correctly when one of the
    agents is of type Sterling File Gateway.
