The SMS_SearchFolder WMI class is an SMS Provider server class, in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, that behaves the same as SMS_ObjectContainerNode, but is only used for search operations.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all inherited properties.

Class SMS_SearchFolder : SMS_BaseClass
   UInt32 FolderId;
   String GroupID; 
   Boolean IsSystem;
   String Name;
   UInt32 ObjectType; 
   String SearchString; 
   String SourceSite;


The SMS_SearchFolder class does not define any methods.

In Configuration Manager 2007, the search folder and folders were one class. Now, in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, they are separate classes. SMS_SearchFolders folders appear in the "Manage Searches" class of menus in the console. The SMS_SearchFolders folders have no dedicated node and are used for node searches only. SMS_SearchFolders folders cannot be used for global searches.

There are no special class qualifiers for this class. For more information about both the class qualifiers and the property qualifiers that are included in the Properties section, see Configuration Manager Class and Property Qualifiers.
