EnumerateResourcesActivity Class

An activity that queries for resources in the FIM Service database and provides the resulting set to child activities.

Namespace: Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Workflow.Activities
Assembly: Microsoft.ResourceManagement (in Microsoft.ResourceManagement.dll)


Dim instance As EnumerateResourcesActivity


Public NotInheritable Class EnumerateResourcesActivity
    Inherits CompositeActivity
public sealed class EnumerateResourcesActivity : CompositeActivity
public ref class EnumerateResourcesActivity sealed : public CompositeActivity
public final class EnumerateResourcesActivity extends CompositeActivity
public final class EnumerateResourcesActivity extends CompositeActivity


Sample usage:

  1. Set the ActorId property of the activity.

  2. Set the XPathFilter property to specify the FIM XPath query to use in the enumeration. For more information, see XPath Filter Language.

  3. Set the PageSize property.

  4. Set the Selection property to specify which attributes to retrieve for the results. The attributes that are common to all resources (those that are attributes of the base Resource object type in the FIM schema) are always returned.

  5. [Optional] Set the SortingAttributes property to specify the sorting order of the results.

  6. Bind a child activity to the EnumerateResourcesActivity activity to access the resources that the enumeration returns.

    The activity evaluatedQueryResult is bound to a declared instance of the EnumerateResourcesActivity, as a child activity, in the following example. The following example assumes a code activity evaluateQueryResult was previously declared.

    this.evaluateQueryResult = new System.Workflow.Activities.CodeActivity();
  7. Access the results from within the code activity that is bound to the EnumerateResourcesActivity.

    The following example returns the current item from the query results.

    ResourceType result = EnumerateResourcesActivity.GetCurrentIterationItem((CodeActivity)sender) as ResourceType;
