CSEntry.ObjectClass Property

The ObjectClass property retrieves a ValueCollection object that contains the object class of the connector space entry.
Note  You can write to this property only in the IMVSynchronization.Provision method.

public ValueCollection ObjectClass {get; set;}
Public Property ObjectClass As ValueCollection


Exception type Condition

The property value is null.


There are no object classes or the CSEntry object is a disconnector object.


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