    ****************************************************************
    While building the MQIACF_QSG_DISPS parameter, CSQM1RMM does not
    correctly account for the AUTHINFO type, causing it to
    incorrectly set the disposition of each object to -1.
    
    The MQIACH_AUTH_INFO_TYPES (1622) parameter is missing from the
    product documentation.
    

Problem conclusion

  • CSQM1RMM is updated to correctly account for the type of each
    AUTHINFO object examined when setting the disposition of the
    object in the MQIACF_QSG_DISPS list.
    
    The MQ V9 Knowledge Centre is updated to document the
    MQIACH_AUTH_INFO_TYPES parameter:
    
    MQIACH_* (Command format Integer Channel Types)
    https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSFKSJ_9.0.0/
                               com.ibm.mq.ref.dev.doc/q091610_.html
    is updated as follows:
    The blank row between MQIACH_CONNECTION_AFFINITY and
    MQIACH_RESET_REQUESTED is replaced with a row containing values:
    "MQIACH_AUTH_INFO_TYPES , 1622, X'00000656'
    
    Inquire Authentication Information Object Names (Response)
    https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSFKSJ_9.0.0/
                               com.ibm.mq.ref.adm.doc/q087300_.html
    is updated as follows:
    A new paragraph
    "
    Additionally, on z/OS® only, a parameter structure,
    AuthInfoTypes (with the same number of entries as the
    AuthInfoNames structure), is returned. Each entry in this
    structure indicates the type of the object with the
    corresponding entry in the AuthInfoNames structure.
    "
    is added.
    
    "AuthInfoTypes" is added to the list of 'Always Returned'
    parameters, for z/OS only
    
    "Response Data" is updated to include a description of
    AuthInfoTypes:
    "
    
    AuthInfoTypes (MQCFIL)
        List of authentication information object types
              (parameter identifier: MQIACH_AUTH_INFO_TYPES).
        Specifies the type of the object This parameter is returned
        on z/OS only. The value can be any of the following values:
    
        MQAIT_CRL_LDAP
        This defines this authentication information object as
        specifying an LDAP server containing Certificate Revocation
        Lists.
    
        MQAIT_OCSP
        This value defines this authentication information object as
        specifying certificate revocation checking using OCSP.
    
        MQAIT_IDPW_OS
        This value defines this authentication information object as
        specifying certificate revocation checking using user ID and
        password checking through the operating system.
