Client Groups
Client Life Cycle
Queue Storage Types
Every Broker client belongs to a client group, which provides important security features by limiting the behavior of the member Broker clients. Client groups are defined and maintained by your webMethods Broker administrator. Each client group is given a name. The restrictions on client group names are discussed in Parameter Naming Rules.
Client groups define these important limits:
*The event types that may be delivered to group members and for which they may register subscriptions. See Event Subscriptions for more information.
*The event types that may be published or delivered by the group members.
*The client life cycle, or how long the Broker will maintain client state information for each group member.
*The client queue type, which determines how the events are stored by the Broker.
*Security information that determines which entities may create a Broker client in this group.
