Method Description
GetXML COM object that retrieves an XML representation of the namespace from the configuration database. This XML is in a format that MPF tools such as ProvNamespace.exe and Provisioning Manager can use to import namespaces.


  • ForExport [in]: A boolean that indicates whether the namespace can be exported. The default value is "0" (false). If "1" (true), the XML is modified so that the namespace can be imported and called by a remote MPF installation.
CreateFromXML COM object that adds a namespace definition to the configuration database or modifies an existing namespace definition.
