  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The following unexpected error codes are returned if a non-mqm
    user/group with only +connect authority to the queue manager
    attempts the following MQSC commands:
    
    Case 1:
        DISPLAY PUBSUB
    
     AMQ8101: IBM MQ error (BC0004) has occurred.
    
    
     Case 2:
         DISPLAY POLICY(*)
    
     AMQ8101: IBM MQ error (BBF) has occurred.
    
       [1021, 205]
    
    
    Case 3:
          DIS AUTHSERV
    
    AMQ8103: Insufficient storage available.
    
    These error responses do not accurately relay the reason why the
    command was unsuccessful (user unauthorized).
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    IBM MQ users using MQSC commands through a non-mqm
    principal/group which has only +connect authority to the Queue
    Manager.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Logic errors in the runmqsc code which reports error conditions
    meant that invalid internal return codes were presented to the
    user instead of the expected MQRC_NOT_AUTHORIZED reason code.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The queue manager's command server component, and the runmqsc
    application, have been updated to correctly return
    MQRC_NOT_AUTHORIZED in these cases.
