    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When administratively defining          *
    *                      subscriptions, a default user id in the *
    *                      SUBUSER attribute of the                *
    *                      SYSTEM.DEFAULT.SUB object is not copied *
    *                      into new SUB objects.                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When a subscription object is created by an administrator, the
    default behavior is fill the SUBUSER attribute of the new
    object with the user ID of the current administrator.
    
    Customers may wish to override this behavior and specify a
    default user ID to be used for new SUB objects. After applying
    the PTF for APAR PM89868, the SYSTEM.DEFAULT.SUB object
    will be checked when defining a new SUB object. If it is not
    blank and the DEFINE command has not explicitly specified a
    SUBUSER attribute then the default SUBUSER value from the
    SYSTEM.DEFAULT.SUB object will be used instead of the current
    administrators ID.
    
    If the SYSTEM.DEFAULT.SUB does not have a SUBUSER value set
    then the behavior will remain as before.
    

Problem conclusion

  • DEFINE SUB processing has been amended to consider the value of
    the SUBUSER attribute in the SYSTEM.DEFAULT.SUB object when
    defining new SUB objects.
    
    In the WebSphere MQ Information Center, the page
    that describes the Publish/subscribe security
    to be updated with the information described below:
    
    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wmqv7/v7r1/
    topic/com.ibm.mq.doc/ps19550_.htm
    
    "Table 2. User IDs used for security checks for commands" is
    updated as follows:
    
    DEFINE LIKE:
      SUBUSER specified and blank:
        Use the administrator ID
    
      SUBUSER specified and completed:
        Use the user ID specified in SUBUSER
    
      SUBUSER not specified:
        Use the user ID from the LIKE subscription
    
    
    DEFINE with no LIKE:
      SUBUSER specified and blank:
        Use the administrator ID
    
      SUBUSER specified and completed:
        Use the user ID specified in SUBUSER
    
      SUBUSER not specified:
        Use the user ID from the SYSTEM.DEFAULT.SUB subscription -
        if blank, use the administrator ID
    
    
    ALTER:
      SUBUSER specified and blank:
        Use the administrator ID
    
      SUBUSER specified and completed:
        Use the user ID specified in SUBUSER
    
      SUBUSER not specified:
        Use the user ID from the existing subscription
