Action

Run a WMI object method.

Parameters

Namespace (string): The WMI namespace to use, e.g. "root\ccm". From v3.1, this parameter is optional and defaults to "root\cimv2".

Query (string): WMI query to select the object(s) to run the method on.

Method (string): The name of the WMI method to run.

AllInstances (boolean): Whether to run the method on all object instances (if there is more than one) or just the first.

Additional parameters for the specific method call. Their names are prefixed with "Param_".

Return values

The accumulated output, if any, from the method invocation(s).

Example
NativeServices.RunWmiInstanceMethod(Namespace:"root\\cimv2", Query:"SELECT * FROM Win32_Process WHERE Name = 'notepad.exe'", AllInstances:True, Method:"Terminate", Param_Reason:"1");
Platforms
  • Windows
Notes

Unlike the recommendation described for the RunWmiQuery method, "SELECT *" must usually be specified in the query otherwise the WMI objects produced by the filter will be incomplete and the WMI method will fail if it requires objects to work on.

This is executed within the 1E Client service user context.
