In Configuration Manager, the InventoryDataContext class is a client Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) class that represents the WMI context qualifiers to be used with inventory client agent WMI queries built from InventoryDataItem Client WMI Class objects. Typically, dynamic instance providers do not require context qualifiers.

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

Class InventoryDataContext : SMS_InventoryAgent_EmbeddedObject
	String Name;
	String Type;
	String Value[];


The InventoryDataContext class does not define any methods.



Data type: StringAccess type: Read/WriteQualifiers: [realkey]Name of the context qualifier.

Data type: StringAccess type: Read/WriteQualifiers: NoneString representation of the WMI variant data type for the context qualifier (for example, 3 for integer and 8200 for string array).

Data type: String ArrayAccess type: Read/WriteQualifiers: NoneContext qualifier value, consistent with the specified data type.


This class allows a generic method to specify context qualifiers for a WMI class query when they are needed. For example, the File System Inventory provider allows context qualifiers for specifying an amount of time to delay between back-to-back file operations. If no context qualifier is specified, there is no delay or throttling of scanning files on the system disk.
