Durable Topic Subscription in JMS Probe

For high availability, we need to have a durable subscription for the MQ topic which pushes events into the Message Bus Probe. We are using a JMS subscription to push these events. We have noticed that other probes than the Message Bus Probe support durable subscriptions, however we didn't notice the same configuration options in the Message Bus Probe. Support has indicated we should submit an RFE for this functionality.

    Oh! I remember why that wouldn't work. The Message Bus Probe's MQTT transport doesn't support SSL.

    Are ALL MQTT topic subscriptions durable? If so, that could be a workaround, I think.

    Maybe you can work with Amazon to get this working in the short-term:

    Apache Active MQ supports MQTT, which is a durable subscription:
