[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in future releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]The Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement namespace contains the root management group class that is the starting point for System Center Service Manager 2010 Software Development Kit (SDK) operations and interfaces that are used to access Service Manager data. The EnterpriseManagementGroup class is used to access and retrieve information from the Service Manager management server.

Classes

Class Description
ActivationContext Represents the activation context.
ApprovedHealthServicesForDistribution Implements the IApprovedHealthServicesForDistribution interface so that the object can specify a list of either MonitoringObject objects or PartialMonitoringObject objects as health services to which any specified credential can be distributed.
ComponentActivationException Represents the exception that is thrown when there is an error in activating a component.
ComponentActivator Contains component activation methods.
ConfigurationReaderException Represents the exception that is thrown when there is an error in reader configuration.
Container Encapsulates zero or more components.
ContainerException Represents the exception that is thrown when there is an error while using the Container object.
CreatableObjectGroup Represents a group of objects as defined by the system infrastructure.
EnterpriseManagementConnectionSettings Defines the settings that are used to connect to a Service Manager server.
EnterpriseManagementGroup Allows you to access and manage Service Manager data. This includes management packs, classes, and other components that are defined in a management pack, user roles, language packs, knowledge articles, forms, and instances of management pack classes. Creating an instance of the EnterpriseManagementGroup class is often the starting point for Service Manager client applications.
EnterpriseManagementGroupInternal Represents a management group internal class.
GenericProperty Represents a generic property in a management pack.
InProcEnterpriseManagementConnectionSettings Provides access to the in-process settings that are used to connect to a Service Manager server.
ManagementPackStore Represents a set of file directories where management packs are stored.
NotificationMessage Represents user-supplied text that is appended to a notification that is sent when Service Manager responds to an event or alert.
NullComponentAttribute Represents the null component attribute.
SecureDataCriteria Specifies the criteria for the GetSecureData(SecureDataCriteria) method, limiting the objects returned by the method to those that meet the criteria.
ServiceManagementConnectionSettings Defines the settings that are used to connect to a Service Manager server.
ServiceManagementGroup Allows you to access and manage Service Manager data, including management packs and the classes and other components defined in a management pack, user roles, language packs, knowledge articles, forms, and instances of management pack classes. This class is derived from the EnterpriseManagementGroup class, and it can be used as the starting point for Service Manager client applications.
SmtpNotificationMessage Represents a notification message that is sent using the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). The message contains user-supplied text that is appended to a notification that is sent when Service Manager responds to an event or alert.
TieredManagementGroupConnectionSettings Includes tiered management group connection settings that are used to connect to the Service Manager server. A tiered connection establishes a secondary connection to another server through the existing connection’s server.
ValidationHelper Contains methods for validation of parameters.

Interfaces

IManagementPackManagement Allows you to access and manage management packs on the Service Manager server. For information about management packs, see Management Packs in Service Manager.
IManagementPackStore Defines properties related to the management pack store.
IMonitoringConfigurationManagement Allows you to monitor configuration management.
INotificationManagement Enables you to send notifications from the Service Manager server.
IOverridesManagement Manages overrides in the Service Manager store.
IPresentationManagement Manages the user interface (UI) objects.
IReportingConfigurationManagement Manages management pack reporting configuration.

IServiceLevelAgreementManagement Allows management of the service level agreement (SLA) objects on the Service Manager server.
ITaskConfigurationManagement Enables management and configuration of tasks.
ITaskRuntimeManagement Enables runtime management of tasks.
ITemplatesManagement Manages templates and object templates in the Service Manager store. Templates are predefined management pack fragments that are used for creating management pack changes with parameters. Object templates pre-populate objects with specific values.
ITypeCacheManagement Provides simple, type-cache management.
ITypeDefinitionsManagement Allows you to access the schema types that are defined in a management pack. The schema types are defined in the <SchemaType> elements under the <TypeDefinitions> element in a management pack.
ITypeProjectionComponent Defines a component from a type projection in Service Manager, which is used to create a view of related properties from multiple objects. For more information, see Type Projections in Service Manager.
IUserSettingsManagement Manages the user-defined console tasks, reports, searches, tasks, and views that are defined in the store.

Delegates
