Enhancements needed for MQ Web Console to rule out third party administration tools

We are planning to move away from MQExplorer and other third party administration tools and switch to MQ Web Console as the go-to utility, however most of the basic functionalities which we use on our day to day basis do not exist in the MQ Console yet.
We would like to have the following functionalities to do operation and administration of Queue Managers and discontinue from the third party products that we use for administration. Following feature are the deciding features which will allow us to discontinue the use of other products.

1. Make channel Status and Queue Status information available on the MQ Console
2. Ability to PUT the messages greater than 1024 characters in the queue
3. Ability to PUT the messages from a file to the queue.
4. Display the MQMD headers in the message browse.
5. Ability to destructive read (MQGET) the messages from the queue.
6. Ability to copy/move messages from one queue to another queue.

    Few of the features originally requested in the RFE are now available in the MQ version 9.2.0.2. These features are:

    1. Display the MQMD headers in the message browse.
    2. Ability to destructive read (MQGET) the messages from the queue.

    However the following key features are still required for us to retire the third party administration tool/utilities.

    1. Ability to PUT messages greater than 1024 characters to the messages queues.
    2. Ability to BROWSE messages greater than 1024 characters from the message queues.
    3. Ability to display non-XML (binary message) on the web console


    Thank you,

    There is one more point I'd like to add which seems to be a shortcoming in the existing version of MQ web console.

    There is no ability to display the binary messages (non-XML) when you browse on the MQ web console as part of the MQ version 9.1.0.5. This shortcomings makes us go back and use other third party administration tools to view the binary messages for testing.

    As the web console evolves, we do expect that at least some of these requirements will be implemented.

Merged
We are hoping that the IBM MQ Console becomes a tool for developers to not only view and manage their queues, but to be able to handle the messages on that queue. Currently there is only a function to clear all messages on a queue via the IBM MQ C...
