But its is not extracting any value from JMSReply.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Configure Service JMS rule's request tab to extract data from MQ message header.
  2. Receive MQ message containing MQ header data replyToQ (MDRQ) and ReplyToQMgr (MDRM) .

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.


The local solution is to Map JMS properties in the Service JMS rule.
​ For example, first use the Out-of-the-box (OOTB) Connect-JMS explorer tool to view the JMS properties, similar to the screen below, and map the property JMS_IBM_MQMQ_ReplyToQ to clipboard in the Service JMS rule request tab "Message properties" section.
