Snapshots allow you to export an object's definitions so you can use them later to back up or recreate the object. You can take a snapshot of any one object, such as a queue or channel, or of an entire queue manager, which can be used for queue manager backup or duplication.
- Select MQSC > Snapshot from an object's pop-up menu to view the definition of the object. This gives you the information needed to recreate the object.
- A screen like the one below is displayed.
- Export this MQSC snapshot to a .txt file by clicking the Save button. You can then use the MQSC > Apply Script option to import the file and recreate the object. See Apply Script for more information.
