How Switches Work

To set a security switch off, you need to define a NO.* switch profile. The existence of a NO.* profile means that security checks are not performed for that type of resource.

Each NO.* switch profile that WebSphere MQ detects turns off the checking for that type of resource. Switch profiles are activated during startup of the queue manager. If you change the switch profiles while any affected Enterprise Server Regions are running, you will need to restart the region for the new values to take effect.

The switch profiles must always be defined in the MQADMIN class.
