Error description

  • When the dmqmqaut command was executed with the '-e'
    option (to display profiles used to calculate the cumulative
    authority to an object) the command returned the response:
    
    "No matching authority records"
    
    but when dmpmqaut was run without the '-e', a specific MQ
    authority record was displayed with "+none" permission
    along with less specific records.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of MQ who run the command dspmqaut using the '-e' option
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    dspmqaut was executed using the '-e' option to display
    calculated authority.  The command reported the message :
    
    dmpmqaut -m IT30004 -e -g testgrp -t q -n TEST.Q
    "No matching authority records."
    
    The meaning of this message was unclear because there
    were matching records.  There was both a generic profile
    which granted authority to the entity, and a specific profile
    which blocked authority to the entity.
    
    Running the command without the '-e' option shows these
    profiles:
    
    dmpmqaut -m IT30004 -g testgrp -t q -n TEST.Q
    profile:     TEST.Q
    object type: queue
    entity:      testgrp
    entity type: group
    authority:   none
    - - - - - - - -
    profile:     TEST.**
    object type: queue
    entity:      testgrp
    entity type: group
    authority:   put
    
    The command was working as designed in not showing any authority
    to the object because the the '-e' option show only records that
    add
    "cumulative" authority to the object but the message reporting
    "No
    matching authority records" could have been clearer
    

Problem conclusion

  • A new message has been introduced to explain this situation more
    clearly:
    
    dmpmqaut -m IT30004 -e -g testgrp -t q -n TEST.Q
    Entity has no authority to object. Run dmpmqaut without '-e' to
    view profiles used in calculation.
    
    The full text of the message is :
    
    Message AMQ7301 :
    Entity has no authority to object. Run dmpmqaut without '-e' to
    view profiles.
    
    Explanation:
    dmpmqaut '-e' only displays those authority profiles which add
    cumulative
    authority for an entity to the specified object. It does not
    show profiles with
    'none' permission (which block authority). Rerun dmpmqaut
    without the '-e'
    option to see all profiles which may be involved in calculating
    authority for
    the object.
