We need a Topic Input Node in MQ Broker

Today MQ only seems to have solid support for Message Queues as the source for MQ Broker messages. We here at Blue Cross have a need for the ability to subscribe a message broker flow to a topic. It would be nice to have a Topic Input Node for that.

    RFE Review. Although we have not yet managed to prioritize the implementation of this feature we continue to monitor its popularity. Status of the RFE is maintained as Uncommitted Candidate.

    Thanks for raising this requirement. We're sold on the utility of an TopicInput node, and we've spent some time investigating the technical engineering required. We'll look to schedule this work in a follow-on release or fixpack.

    WMBv7 doesn't require an RFH2 for the Publication node; just the details in the Properties tree.

    I agree a Subscription node would be more intuitive & flexible than reading durable subscriptions with an MQInput node.

    and this should be complemented by an Publisher Node that does not require the developer to create a RFH2 header manually.
    I think the best delivery would be an update to the existing MQ Nodes to include the 'new' MQV7 capabilities.
