Property Value

Returns a String.


The ObjectClass property usually returns a ValueCollection object with a single entry that has the same value as the ObjectType property. For file-based management agents, the ObjectClass property returns a ValueCollection object that contains one item, and the ObjectType property returns a String. For the Active Directory management agent, the ObjectClass property returns multiple items in its ValueCollection object, and the ObjectType property returns only the primary object type. For example, for a user object, the ObjectClass property returns top, person, organizationalPerson, and user. The ObjectType property returns user. Use the ObjectType property in your process to determine the type of a connector space object, for example if you want to determine whether an object is a user or a group.
