    Thanks for the info and apologies for bothering you , How do I specify the password for the MQ user when defining the MQ endpoint? We have security turned on MQ so we need to authenticate .

  2. Thys Michels says:

    I just checked in the Cast Iron IDE and also searched on the web I can’t find anywhere you can specify a password. Maybe you need to add the password to the MQ jar you imported. Not sure about this, best will be to contact IBM directly.

  3. Ed Howard says:

    I wonder was there any progress on security issue. While I do not want to provide a password, I do want to connection to WMQ server & have authorisation to selected queues. However Ci documentation suggests user is required to be in MQM group, but this would give all to all queues , which I am not allowed do…..
