    Hi Joy

    I see two different ways, either using SmartAlerts or Infra Events.

    SmartAlerts: You should see the actual messages as spans/calls. Hence creating a SmartAlert https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/instana-observability/current?topic=ma-smart-alerts
    This screenshots shows the messages as spans/calls from our demo

    Events:

    Please be aware that we have already many in-build events for IBM MQ Queue*. Please see the screenshots, also how to configure a "message in" alert.

    Let me know if this answers your questions, 

    Tom
