CIM_ActionSequence class

The CIM_ActionSequence association defines a series of operations that transition the software element (referenced by the CIM_SoftwareElementActions association) to its next state, or removes the software element from its current state.

The next-state actions and uninstall actions associated with a particular software element must be a continuous sequence. Since CIM_ActionSequence is an association, the loops on the CIM_Action class, with roles for the "prior" action and "next" action, form a sequence.

The need for a continuous sequence implies:

  • Within the set of next-state or uninstall actions, there is only one action that does not have an instance of the CIM_ActionSequence association referencing it in the "next" role. This is the first action in the sequence.
  • Within the set of next-state or uninstall actions, there is only one action that does not have an instance of the CIM_ActionSequence association referencing it in the "prior" role. This is the last action in the sequence.
  • All other actions within the set of next-state and uninstall actions must participate in two instances of the CIM_ActionSequence association, one in a "prior" role and one in the "next" role.

[!Important]
The DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) CIM (Common Information Model) classes are the parent classes upon which WMI classes are built. WMI currently supports only the CIM 2.x version schemas.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all inherited properties. Properties are listed in alphabetic order, not MOF order.
