DeliveryChannelArgument Class

SQL Server 2005

Represents one name/value pair for a delivery channel argument. These arguments are typically used to supply configuration and authentication information required by the delivery service.

Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Nmo
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in microsoft.sqlserver.smo.dll)

public sealed class DeliveryChannelArgument : NamedSmoObject
public final class DeliveryChannelArgument extends NamedSmoObject
public final class DeliveryChannelArgument extends NamedSmoObject

Delivery channel arguments are passed to the associated delivery protocol's Initialize method upon initialization.

Each delivery protocol specifies its own set of arguments. Examples of delivery channel arguments are the server name, a user name, and a password. For information about the arguments required by standard delivery protocols, see Standard Delivery Protocols.

Notification Services does not validate delivery channel arguments when you create or update the instance of Notification Services.

Notification Services stores the argument names and values in the instance database. To encrypt the values stored in the database, configure argument encryption using the EncryptArguments property.

If you store user names and passwords in your source code, secure the source code.

The following examples show how to define a file delivery channel and its arguments:

// Define a delivery channel that uses the built-in File protocol
DeliveryChannel fileChannel = 
    new DeliveryChannel(myInstance, "FileChannel");
fileChannel.ProtocolName = "File";

// Define and add arguments for the file delivery channel
DeliveryChannelArgument fileNameArg = 
    new DeliveryChannelArgument(fileChannel, "FileName");
fileNameArg.Value = sampleDirectory + 

// Add the file delivery channel to the instance

Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
