Sometimes it's helpful to set particular limits on what certain users can do beyond the normal security settings related to authorization and authentication. For example, limiting how many connections a user can create or how many queues a user can create. This chapter will explain how to configure such limits.
Configuring Limits Via Resource Limit Settings
Here is an example of the XML used to set resource limits:
<resource-limit-settings> <resource-limit-setting match="myUser"> <max-connections>5</max-connections> <max-queues>3</max-queues> </resource-limit-setting> </resource-limit-settings>
match does not use
any wild-card syntax. It's a simple 1:1 mapping of the limits to a user.
max-connections defines how many connections the matched user can make
to the broker. The default is -1 which means there is no limit.
max-queues defines how many queues the matched user can create. The default
is -1 which means there is no limit.
