The Operations Manager class libraries expose information about installed Management Packs. The Management Pack classes can be used to view or edit the configuration of a Management Pack. For more information about using the Operations Manager class libraries for creating your own Management Pack authoring tools, see Automating Management Pack Development.

Example

The following example demonstrates how to enumerate the contents of a specific Management Pack that is installed in a Management Group.
