Scripting Object - VcServiceContent


Scripting Object Description

The VcServiceContent 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 VcServiceInstance. For this reason, use the method VcServiceInstance to retrieve the VcServiceContent object.
