The UserClients action parameter is deprecated for Query Manipulation Server version 11.5.0 and later. HPE recommends that you use authorization roles instead. See Authorization Roles Configuration Parameters.

The UserClients configuration parameter is still available for existing implementations, but it might be incompatible with new functionality. The parameter might be deleted in future.

One or more IP addresses for machines that are permitted to send user commands to the Port. Separate multiple addresses using commas (there must be no space before or after a comma).

You can use wildcards in the IP addresses. For example, type 187.*.*.* to permit any machine whose IP address begins with 187 to access the service's status. You can also filter the UserClients parameter using CIDR notation.


This parameter is an alternative name for QueryClients. If both parameters are present, QMS uses QueryClients.

You can also configure client permissions by using the [AuthorizationRoles] configuration section. This section provides a more flexible method for setting up user authorization, and also allows you to set up permissions by using SSL identities or GSS principals. See Authorization Roles Configuration Parameters.

To disable authorization by client IP address, set this parameter to "". In this case, Query Manipulation Server uses the options that you set in the [AuthorizationRoles] section only.
