Defining queue managers by editing job name table

The job name table (BBIJNT00) in your copy of the BBPARM parameter library defines the queue manager target names for MainView for MQ .

For MainView for MQ, the TARGET keyword supports either specifying static target names or specifying an asterisk (*) where targets are dynamically discovered.

The following table describes these entries for MainView for MQ.

Specifying queue manager target names in BBPARM member BBIJNT00




defines the queue manager target names for MainView for MQ

Valid values for the TARGET keyword include the following definitions:

  • TARGET=*,TYPE=QMGR,SUBSYS=pasID causes MainView for MQ to discover all defined queue managers at PAS startup. Queue managers are attached as they become active or immediately, if they are already active.

    When you use this option, only distributed queue managers need to be specified in BBPARM member BBIJNT00 or defined as dynamic targets from the PLEX manager.

  • TARGET=tgtname,TYPE=QMGR,SUBSYS=pasID causes MainView for MQ to attach the specified queue manager.

For TYPE=QMGR, you can specify the name of an MVS queue manager (1 to 4 uppercase characters) or a distributed queue manager (1 to 8 uppercase characters).

If a distributed queue manager name has more than eight characters or includes lowercase characters, create a queue manager profile to specify the actual queue manager name. (See Defining queue manager profiles.)


identifies the target as aMQ queue manager


indicates the subsystem ID of the PAS that monitors the queue manager


provides an optional description of the queue manager that is shown on some PLEX Manager views

Changes to BBIJNT00 take effect when the PAS is restarted.

When you have defined the queue manager targets, you might need to create new queue manager profiles. For more information, see Defining queue manager profiles.
