Sometime you need to know the internal ID (Guid) of management pack or management pack element before the MP imported to SCSM. This can be done very easy using some T-SQL magic.
This article contains code snippets for C# and PowerShell that can be helpful when you work with SCSM 2010 SP1 SDK.
When you create your own classes, views or folders sometime you need link existing images to them. To do that you must know ID or Name of the image. But all images located in several management pack so find them is not a easiest work. Near I provide full list of images available in SCSM 2010 SP1 CU2. This table contains image itself, size, id and name grouped by management pack.
I’ve already saw many questions on forums about extending SCSM with new forms and\or custom user’s controls. So I wrote this article to show how we can extend SCSM with user control only. As for me, I prefer to use custom control without rewriting entire form because User Control provide excellent ability to change form’s logic and visibility, but they require much less work unlike the creation of new form and replace existing one. Another reason – new version of SCSM, which expected at Q4 2011 – Q1 2012. It’s a very small chance what if you rewrote entire form it will be work with SCSM 2012.
