How to Create Alias queue in WebSphere MQ Series

Alias Queue

An alias queue allows applications to access a queue by referring to it indirectly in MQI calls. When an alias queue name is used in an MQI call, the name is resolved to the name of either a local or a remote queue at run time. This allows you to change the queues that applications use without changing the application in any way; you merely change the alias queue definition to reflect the name of the new queue to which the alias resolves. An alias queue is not a queue, but an object that you can use to access another queue.

Right click on Queues and choose New->Alias Queue option.


Set queue name like: “Excercise1QA1”



Set base object name same as local queue name
