SMS_AuthorizationList Server WMI Class


Applies To: System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1, System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager

The SMS_AuthorizationList Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) class is an SMS Provider server class, in System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager, that represents a collection of SMS_SoftwareUpdate objects for the software updates available on the site and authorized for deployment. Use of an authorization list is optional in a software update deployment.

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

The following table lists the methods in the SMS_AuthorizationList class.



RunAuthListStatusSummarization Method in Class SMS_AuthorizationList

Updates summarized results for a particular update group.



Class qualifiers for this class include:

  • Secured

For more information about both the class qualifiers and the property qualifiers included in the Properties section, see Configuration Manager Class and Property Qualifiers.

Use of this class is optional. An SMS_AuthorizationList object is created based on criteria that are chosen by the administrator for deployment of selected SMS_SoftwareUpdate objects. The authorization list is used by an SMS_UpdatesAssignment Server WMI Class object to create a deployment.

An SMS_AuthorizationList object is a type of configuration item, as is each software update. Therefore, the authorization list is an example of a configuration item that bundles other configuration items. Both SMS_AuthorizationList and SMS_SoftwareUpdate are derived from SMS_ConfigurationItemBaseClass Server WMI Class, which defines an IsBundle property. When building an authorization list, this property of each update is set to true to indicate that the update is part of a bundle.
