    Has anyone created custom workflow components that add, update, and remove SMP fixed and consumable catalog items and manipulate stockroom information? Just trying to save myself some time backward engineering the database.

    My current Workflow build is 7.1.1600.14

    Thanks.

    if you run the Symantec.Components.Generated7.Altiris.Resource library and edit the generator, you'll see hundreds of web service components that aren't included by default but that are made available to you through the generator.  This generator queries all the SMP web services when you load it, and finds all exposed web services, including ones for any custom data classes you've built.  it's not easy to dig through, but you may find everything you need in there.

    Once it completes, it'll seem as though it's started over, but just run it the second time and you'll get to where you need to be.

    click "Adjust definitions" and you'll find this window:

    select the ones you want to load and next through the rest.  if you decide to use the "Search", don't just start typing, because it immediately tries to find the one letter you've typed in all the results.  type your search string someplace else, copy it, and paste it in the search box.

    I hope it helps!

    Seems simple enough. Any adverse side effects resulting from recompiling this integration library for any workflow dependent on it?

    There should already be some selected, as you're editing an existing library.  If any components that are in use anywhere become unselected and the library is recompiled in that state, I imagine those projects would throw errors.  Use with caution I'll say.
