About MQ Server data instances

Use this form to configure an IBM MQ server to work with Pega Platform MQ connectors and services.

The following tabs are available on this form:

You define MQ services through the Service MQ form ( Rule-Service-MQ rule type). You define MQ connectors through the Connect MQ form ( Rule-Connect-MQ rule type).

When you implement MQ services, create one or more MQ listeners to reference an MQ Server data instance. When you implement an MQ connector, reference the MQ Server data instance on the Service tab of the Connect MQ form.


You can use the Records Explorer to review or create MQ Servers.


The Data-Admin-Connect-MQServer class contains MQ Server data instances. This class is part of the Integration-Resources category.

Associated ruleset

When you save an MQ Server data instance, if the Associated RuleSet is [none], the system completes this field with a RuleSet from the current application. This association assists with application packaging. You can update the associated RuleSet using the field in the upper right corner of the form. See Identifying parts of rule and data forms.

If there is no RuleSet associated with the data instance (for example, for existing instances not previously associated with a RuleSet), the Associated RuleSet displays [none].
