IBM MQ connection
To access your data in IBM MQ, create a connection asset for it.
MQ is messaging and queuing middleware that works with a broad range of computing platforms, applications, web services, and communications protocols for security-rich message delivery. MQ was formerly named "IBM WebSphere MQ." This connection is available for the DataStage service only.
IBM MQ 7.5, 8.0, 9.0, 9.1, 9.3
