Represents the public key token of a referenced management pack.
Attributes and Elements
The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements of the PublicKeyToken element.
Represents an external management pack as a dependency reference in a management pack.
A text value is required. All management packs published by Microsoft will have the public key token 31bf3856ad364e35.
Public key tokens are created when a management pack is sealed. For that reason, an unsealed management pack cannot be referenced by another management pack. To find the public key token for a sealed management pack, use the Strong Name tool with the following syntax:
sn –T ManagementPack.mp
For more information about the Strong Name tool, see Strong Name Tool (sn.exe). For an example of how the PublicKeyToken element is expressed in a management pack, see Manifest.
