Dear All

We have windows MQ server 9.1.4

One of the third party apps that need to connect to the server via MQ Client can not provide user name and password (they can only connect without user name and password - no place for user/password in their config forms )

What to do in this case...

disable security on Queue manager ? or handle security on channel ... or what to do and how ?

Thanks
Heba

Another way to authenticate a client is through TLS. I would recommend you use a CHLAUTH rule that validates both the serialnumber and issuer of a CA signed client certificate.

And if the MQ Client cannot pass a username and password there is the mqccred security exit that ships with MQ.

I read this as Client app developer stubbornly refuses to pass any credentials to server, and demands MQ deal with it.
