Provide a AUTHOREV(NODISPLAY) option similar to CMDEV(NODISPLAY) to avoid 1000's of generated monitoring events that are no real authorization issue when using IBM MQ Explorer.

When using MQ Explorer, you get to see the queues / alias queues / ... for which you're authorized. When AUTHOREV is enabled, listing the queues in MQ Explorer generates 1000's of event messages on SYSTEM.ADMIN.QMGR.EVENT (depending on the number of queues of course) indicating that the user is not authorized. The number of messages generated, and the reason why, is so intrusive that the alternative at the moment is to disable AUTHOREV. Disabling AUTHOREV of course has the consequence that we also miss real authorization issues. User X trying to put / get messages on a queue that he's not supposed to use.

Using a filter in MQ Explorer reduces the number of messages, but not all. And, for the user (developer) that uses MQ Explorer there is no added value. The MQ admin also can't force developers to use filters in MQ Explorer... 

Similar to the option available with CMDEV, the option NODISPLAY for AUTHOREV would solve this. Don't generate monitoring events for DISPLAY & INQUIRE attempts. This would allow us to profit from event monitoring concerning real authorization issues without the many messages when using MQ Explorer.

    This can already be done with the SuppressDspAuthFail tuning paramter in the qm.ini file. This is described in the product documentation.
