Thank you very much for the additional information regarding the severities assigned by the system and the usage of the APIs. However that does not explain why RCVMSG and QMHRCVM do not return the message severity. I already opened a PMR (TS009151987) for that and I was told that that works as designed and that I could (or should) open a new idea.
80 ??? Information
99 ??? Inquiry, Sender copy, Reply
0 ??? all other message types
When displaying an immediate message, (ie. DSPMSG command, QGYOLMSG API) the message severity is shown/returned.
When receiving an immediate message (ie. RCVMSG command, QMHRCVM API) the message severity is not returned.
MESSAGE_QUEUE_INFO uses the QGYOLMSG API, therefore it will return the message severity for immediate messages.
