Sun GlassFish Message Queue 4.4 Administration Guide

Specifying the User Name and Password

Because each imqcmd subcommand is authenticated against the user repository, it requires a user name and password. The only exceptions are commands that use the -h or -H option to display help, and those that use the -v option to display the product version.

Use the -u option to specify an administrative user name. For example, the following command displays information about the default broker:

   imqcmd query bkr  -u admin

If you omit the user name, the command will prompt you for it.

Note –

For simplicity, the examples in this chapter use the default user name admin as the argument to the -u option. In a real-life production environment, you would use a custom user name.

Specify the password using one of the following methods:

Note –

In previous versions of Message Queue, you could use the -p option to specify a password on the imqcmd command line. As of Message Queue 4.0, this option is deprecated and is no longer supported; you must instead use one of the methods listed above.
