Qpid Access Control Providers Test

The Access Control Provider governs the actions that a user may perform. There are two points within the hierarchy that enforce access control: the Broker itself and at each Virtual Host. When an access decision needs to be made, the nearest control point configured with a provider is consulted for a decision. The example, when making a decision about the ability to say, consume from, a Queue, if the Virtual Host is configured with Access Control Provider it is consulted. Unless a decision is made, the decision is delegated to the Access Control Provider configured at the Broker.

The Access Control Providers are configured with a list of ACL (Access Control) rules. The rules determine to which objects the user has access and what actions the user may perform on those objects. ACL rules can be written in terms of user or group names. This test reports the current state of the application for which the access control rule is applied and reports error, if any.

Target of the test : Apache Qpid Java Broker

Agent deploying the test : An internal/remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each Access Control Provider: Access Control rule in the target Apache Qpid Java Broker.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed.


The IP address of the target server that is being monitored.


The port number through which the Apache Qpid Java Broker communicates. The default port is 8080.


By default, the eG agent executes REST APIs on the target component to collect the required metrics. For the eG agent to execute the REST APIs, a user with monitoring privilege is required. Specify the name of such a user in this text box.


Specify the password corresponding to the user mentioned in the Username text box here.

Confirm Password

Confirm the password by retyping it here.


By default, the SSL flag is set to No, indicating that the target Apache Qpid Java Broker is not SSL-enabled by default. To enable the test to connect to an SSL-enabled Apache Qpid Java Broker, set the SSL flag to Yes.


Specify the duration (in seconds) within which the query executed by this test should time out in this text box.
