Data Object Description

The ServiceContent data object defines properties for the ServiceInstance managed object. The ServiceInstance itself does not have directly-accessible properties because reading the properties of a managed object requires the use of a property collector, and the property collector itself is a property of the ServiceInstance. For this reason, use the method RetrieveServiceContent to retrieve the ServiceContent object.
