Access Control for Physical Destinations

The destination access control section of the access control properties file contains physical destination-based access control rules. These rules determine who (users/groups) may do what (operations) where (physical destinations). The types of access that are regulated by these rules include sending messages to a queue, publishing messages to a topic, receiving messages from a queue, subscribing to a topic, and browsing messages in a queue.

By default, any user or group can have all types of access to any physical destination. You can add more specific destination access rules or edit the default rules.
