name Attribute

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

The name attribute is a logical or friendly name used as a mapping to a string value referenced in the .adml file. This attribute can be used in the category, definition, or policy element.


name="<placeholder for logical or friendly name>"


Each name attribute must be unique for a mapping to a string reference within an .admx file. For example, if you have two policy name strings you want to reference, you cannot use a single name="policy" to map to each string. Instead they must be unique; for example, name="policy1" and name="policy2" to reference the policy string names.
