QueueManagerController

The second part of the URI must be qmgr to call the QueueManagerController.

inquire

Returns all attributes of the queuemanager with the given name. This actions executes the PCF commando MQCMD_INQUIRE_Q_MGR. On success, the returned JSON object will have a data array, on failure an error object.

URL Parameters

/api/qmgr/inquire/<QueueManager>

QueueManager

The name of the queuemanager. This parameter is required.

Query Parameters

CommandScope

Specifies how the command is executed when the queue manager is a member of a queue-sharing group. This parameter applies to z/OS only.

QMgrAttrs

With the QMgrAttrs parameter you can specify which attributes must be returned from the PCF command. Multiple occurences of this parameter are possible. The value must be a (case-sensitive) valid attribute name.

Attrs is a synonym for QMgrAttrs

Example

/api/qmgr/inquire/PIGEON

<?php
	/*
	 * This sample will show the description of queuemanager PIGEON.
	 * MQWeb runs on localhost and is listening on port 8081. 
	 */
	$url = "http://localhost:8081/api/qmgr/inquire/PIGEON";

	$curl = curl_init();
	curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
	curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);

	if ( ($response = curl_exec($curl)) === false )	{
		$err = curl_error($curl);
		echo 'An HTTP error occurred while inquiring queuemanager status: '
			. $err
			. PHP_EOL;
	}
	else {
		$json = json_decode($response);
		if ( isset($json->error) ) {
			echo 'An MQ error occurred while inquiring queuemanager status.'
				. PHP_EOL;
			echo 'Reason Code: '
				. $json->error->reason->code
				. ' - '
				. $json->error->reason->desc
				. PHP_EOL;
		}
		else {
			if ( isset($json->data) && count($json->data) > 0 ) {
				echo $json->data[0]->QMgrName->value
					. ' : '
					. $json->data[0]->QMgrDesc->value
					. PHP_EOL;
			}
			else {
				echo 'No qmgr found' . PHP_EOL;
			}
		}
	}

JSON Object

When using an application/json POST request you can post a JSON object with names like the query parameters.

All URL parameters and query parameters are ignored except for the URL parameter for the name of the queuemanager.

{
  'QMgrAttrs' : [
    'QMgrName',
    'QMgrDesc'
  ]
}

There are some differences between query parameters and a JSON object:

This is a Perl example that inquires a queuemanager to get the description of the queuemanager.

#!/usr/bin/perl
use strict;
use warnings;
use JSON;
use LWP::UserAgent;
use HTTP::Request::Common;
use feature qw(say);

# This sample will show the description of the queuemanager

my $qmgr = shift;
die("Please pass me the name of a queuemanager as argument") 
	unless defined($qmgr);

my $json = JSON->new;

my %input = ( 
	'QMgrAttrs' => [
		'QMgrDesc'
	],
);
my $content = $json->encode(\%input);    

my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new;
my $req = POST 'http://localhost:8081/api/qmgr/inquire/' . $qmgr;
$req->header(
	'Content-Type' => 'application/json',
	'Content-length' => length($content)
);
$req->content($content);

my $res = $ua->request($req);
die $res->status_line unless $res->is_success;

my $mqweb = $json->decode($res->content());
if ( exists($mqweb->{error}) ) {
	say 'An MQ error occurred while inquiring queuemanager.';
	say	'Reason Code: ',
		$mqweb->{error}->{reason}->{code},
		' - ',
		$mqweb->{error}->{reason}->{desc};
}
else {
	say $mqweb->{data}->[0]->{QMgrName}->{value},
		' : ', 
		$mqweb->{data}->[0]->{QMgrDesc}->{value};
}
