InvokeSchema is a complex data type that is used to specify the set of properties required to perform a WS-Management Invoke operation.


<xsd:complexType name="InvokeSchema">
  <xsd:sequence>
    <xsd:element name="Protocol" type="ProtocolType" />
    <xsd:element name="TargetSystem" type="xsd:string" />
    <xsd:element name="Port" type="PortType" />
    <xsd:element name="Authentication" type="AuthenticationType" />
    <xsd:element name="UserName" type="xsd:string" />
    <xsd:element name="Password" type="xsd:string" />
    <xsd:element name="SkipCACheck" type="xsd:boolean" />
    <xsd:element name="SkipCNCheck" type="xsd:boolean" />
    <xsd:element name="OutputErrorIfAny" type="xsd:boolean" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" />
    <xsd:element name="UTF" type="UtfType" />
    <xsd:element name="Uri" type="xsd:string" />
    <xsd:element name="Selector" type="xsd:string" />
    <xsd:element name="InvokeAction" type="xsd:string" />
    <xsd:element name="Input" type="xsd:string" />
    <xsd:element name="TimeOutInMS" type="xsd:unsignedLong" />
    <xsd:element name="EventPolicy" type="EventPolicySchema" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" />
  </xsd:sequence>
</xsd:complexType>

The InvokeSchema data type contains the parameters described in the following table.

 

Parameter Type Description

Protocol

String

Contains a string specifying the ProtocolType value that is used to communicate between computers. The supported values are HTTP and HTTPS.

TargetSystem

String

Specifies the system against which the request is submitted. This can be a fully qualified domain name or an IP address. For more information, see notes later in this document.

Port

Integer

Specifies the port number for the request. Must be a value in the range of 0 to 65535.

Authentication

String

Contains the AuthenticationType value to use for communicating. Currently supported values are:

  • None

  • Basic

  • Kerberos

  • Digest

  • Negotiate

UserName

String

Contains the user name used for authentication. For use with Basic, Digest, and Negotiate authentication only. For more information, see notes later in this document.

Password

String

Contains the password that is used for authentication. For use with Basic, Digest, and Negotiate authentication only. For more information, see notes later in this document.

SkipCACheck

Boolean

Specifies whether to skip any validations against the certification authority (CA) on the target system. Enabling this flag causes the modules to trust the certificate on a target system, even if they are self-signed.

SkipCNCheck

Boolean

Specifies that computer name and server certificate common name (CN) check should be skipped. For more information, see notes later in this document.

OutputErrorIfAny

Boolean

Optional. Specifies whether to output any errors. Default value is false.

UTF

String

Specifies the encoding format. Currently supported values are UTF-8 and UTF-16.

Uri

String

Contains the complete URI for the object to be invoked.

Selector

String

Contains the selector string used to filter and select objects being queried for.

InvokeAction

String

Contains the method to invoke on the object.

Input

String

Contains an XML representation of the input for the method. This string must be supplied or the invoke will fail.

TimeOutInMS

unsigned Integer

Specifies the amount of time to wait for the response from the computer on which the invoke is to take place. Default value is 60,000 milliseconds (60 seconds). For more information, see notes later in this document.

EventPolicy

Integer

Not used.

TargetSystem

This parameter is often passed by a substitution parameter based on the target or other configuration, as in the following example:

$Target/Property[Type="Windows!Microsoft.Windows.Computer"]/PrincipalName$

UserName and Password

For Kerberos and Negotiate authentication, the UserName parameter can still be passed, but it does not affect the outcome of the calling method.

You can also pass in the UserName parameter value as a RunAsAccount associated with a RunAsProfile under which WsMan runs the module, as shown in the following example:


$RunAs[Name="WSMan!Microsoft.SystemCenter.WSManagement.WSManActionAccount"]/UserName$

The Password parameter can be passed in the same way, as in the following example:

$RunAs[Name="WSMan!Microsoft.SystemCenter.WSManagement.WSManActionAccount"]/Password$

This assumes the reference to Microsoft.SystemCenter.WSManagement.Library has been set to WSMan, as in the following example:


<Reference Alias="WSMan">
   <ID>Microsoft.SystemCenter.WSManagement.Library</ID>
   <Version>6.0.6278.0</Version>
   <PublicKeyToken>31bf3856ad364e35</PublicKeyToken>
</Reference>

SkipCNCheck

When using HTTPS, the computer name must match the server's certificate common name (CN) unless the SkipCNCheck parameter is set to true. This parameter should be set to true when communicating with a device using HTTPS and using an IP address (rather than a fully qualified domain name) or when the name under which the certificate has been issued is different from the name of the target system.

TimeOutInMS

When this parameter is overridden, WS-Management uses the overridden value or four times the value of NetworkDelayms, whichever is greater. The value in NetworkDelayms can be found by running the following at the command prompt:

winrm get winrm/Config/Client

For more information about URIs, see Resource URIs.

Input

The Input parameter must be included whether or not the method requires parameters. If you are calling the StopService method, you would provide the parameter in the following way:

<Input><p:StopService_INPUT xmlns:p="http://schemas.microsoft.com/wbem/wsman/1/wmi/root/cimv2/Win32_Service"/></Input>

If you are calling a method that does require a parameter, such as the Create method on a Win32 process resource, you would provide the parameter in the following way:


<Input>
  <p:Create_INPUT xmlns:p="http://schemas.microsoft.com/wbem/wsman/1/wmi/root/cimv2/Win32_Process">
    <p:CommandLine>calc.exe</p:CommandLine>
  </p:Create_INPUT>
</Input>
