When using the MQADMIN TSO interface, make possible to list queues by specifying a character indicating a generic char in the middle or at the end of the queue name.

We often need to list queues using a generic name using the MQADM TSO/ISPF intarface. We know that it is possible to use the * character (as generic char) at the end of the name to list all the queues with a certain prefix, or use only the * character to list all the existing queues. Our need is to list queues that have a specific prefix, but also that have a string in the middle of the name or at the end of the name, whether in upper or lower case. Example: If there is the queue named ABC.def.ghi.JKL I want to list it using any of the generic name examples below: A) ABC* B) ABC*JKL C) abc*ghi* D) abc*jkl E) ABC*de*GH* F) a*l It is interesting that this same possibility also be extended for use in the DISPLAY QUEUE command and also for other QM resources such as CFStructure names, Channel names, storage class names, etc.

    Implementing more general wildcards would need to be much broader than just the TSO interface - it would have to be done inside the various queue manager implementations. Doing that level of change would not fit with our delivery plans for the next couple of years. As a result we are declining this Idea.
