APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Event messages generated by the queue manager are redirected
    using publish/subscribe.
    
    The WebSphere MQ configuration consists of:
    1. Define a TOPIC object.
    2. Delete the local SYSTEM.ADMIN.*.EVENT queue.
    3. Define an alias queue SYSTEM.ADMIN.*.EVENT with
    TARGET = TOPIC object name defined in 1,
    TARGTYPE = TOPIC
    4. Define a subscription with
    DEST = a cluster queue defined on a remote queue
    manager,
    TOPICOBJ = TOPIC defined in 1.
    
    When an event message is generated by the queue manager, it
    goes to the dead-letter queue with error MQRC=2035
    (MQRC_NOT_AUTHORIZED).
    
    The publisher's permission to put to the topic should be
    enough to allow the put to the event queue.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users publishing event messages to cluster queues.
    
    Platforms affected:
    All Distributed (iSeries, all Unix and Windows)
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    An authority check for the publisher to put to the cluster queue
    should have succeeded because it had already been determined
    that the publisher had authority to put to the topic. However,
    the authority check on the cluster queue failed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was changed to allow the authority check to the cluster
    queue to succeed when the publisher has authority to put to the
    topic.
