Error description

  • You run WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer Web Gateway.
    
    You have a large number of files sitting in filespaces in a
    web gateway and you want to get a selection of these files by
    using one of the supported filter options (transfer_query) as
    part of the "Uniform Resource Identifier syntax for using the
    Web Gateway".
    
    In the below example you try to get all files in a filespace
    that start after 2016/01/11:
    
      http://172.28.24.25:9080/wmqfte/filespace/7400_svc_transport?
      startafter=2016-01-11
    
    This query finishes with the error:
    
    BFGWI0032E: Parameter 'startafter' is invalid.
    
    Effectively all filespace query requests that include
    file_space_query parameters "startbefore, startafter, endbefore,
    or endafter" are rejected with the error message:
    
    BFGWI0032E: Parameter '<parameter name>' is invalid.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users attempting Web Gateway filespace query and using
    filespace status parameter to filter response.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When the Web Gateway received a filespace status requests that
    used file space parameters to filter the responses, the wrong
    validation routine was used to validate the parameters. As a
    result, the request was rejected with a BFGWI0032E error. For
    example, the request:
    
    <connection>/<context_root>/filespace/<file_space_name>?startaft
    er=2016-01-01
    
    would receive the response
    
      BFGWI0032E: Parameter 'startafter' is invalid.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Web Gateway has been corrected to accept startbefore,
    startafter, endbefore, and endafter date/time parameters and
    compare these with the date/time each file space entry in the
    file space was created so that the response will contain a
    filtered list of entries.
