MQWB0114E: User 'GEN.ESBADMIN1_DEV' is unable to use the 'MQWebUser' role because the principal name is longer than 12 characters.

IBM MQ REST API call not allowing user id greater than 12 characters.. what is the reason behind this restriction on REST API ( MQ Web Admin ) call only? when service account is accepting greater than 12 character why this restriction on MQ Web? if we get the fix in next MQ fix pack would be better.

    We hope to add some features to the MQ REST API in future which would permit longer names to be mapped to shorter names.
