For more information about creating IBM WebSphere MQ job definitions, see the section about IBM WebSphere MQ Job definition - jobs, in the HCL Workload Automation User's Guide and Reference.


  1. Install IBM WebSphere MQ, version 7.5.
  2. On the IBM WebSphere MQ server workstation, create a user to use in the HCL Workload Automation jobs definition that is not a privileged user. On UNIX operating systems, the user must not belong to the mqm group created at installation time. On Windows operating systems, the user cannot be a member of the Administrators group.
  3. Allow the user that is defined in step 2 to connect to its queue manager, queues, and channels. For the queue manager associated to the user, set the Display for the Administration authority, and the Connect and the Inquire for MQI authority.
