Enable the connection of CICS tasks with a QSG

Currently it is only possible to connect a CICS task to a single queue manager in a fixed way.

If CICS were able to connect to any queue manager of a QSG, it would increase flexibility and availability within the environment.

    This has been possible for a long time. See

    "MQNAME(name) Specifies the 1 - 4 character name of either a single IBM® MQ queue manager, or a queue-sharing group of IBM MQ queue managers.

    • If you specify a single queue manager, when you start the CICS-MQ connection, CICS connects only to this queue manager.

    • If you specify a queue-sharing group, when you start the connection, CICS connects to any active member of this group on the same LPAR. Use the RESYNCMEMBER attribute to specify what happens when CICS is holding outstanding units of work for the last queue manager to which it connected from the queue-sharing group.

    If you specify RESYNCMEMBER(GROUPRESYNC), MQNAME must be the name of a queue-sharing group.
