Metabase Configuration Service Provider

Windows Mobile 6.5
4/8/2010

Use the Metabase Configuration Service Provider to add, modify, and remove entries from the metabase.

The metabase (metadata database) contains specific information about the Configuration Service Providers on a Windows® phone. The metadata includes settings, possible values, information about how to display parameters that are configurable through certain Configuration Service Providers, role requirements and mappings for each setting and Configuration Service Provider, and other relevant information about them. Individual settings can be queried, updated, or deleted; however, top-level query and deletion is not supported.

Each Configuration Service Provider setting is updated as a metabase configuration file is processed. This allows new setting values in subsequent settings within the file to be used. For example, a security setting could be changed so that the next parameter could make use of the new security role information.

Bb737399.security(en-us,MSDN.10).gifSecurity Note:
The Metabase Configuration Service Provider is set to the Manager role by default. Changing this role could elevate privileges, making the metabase less secure.

This Configuration Service Provider is managed over the OMA Client Provisioning (formerly WAP Client Provisioning) protocol.

Bb737399.note(en-us,MSDN.10).gifNote:
Access to this Configuration Service Provider is determined by Security roles. Because OEMs and Mobile Operators can selectively disallow access, ask them about the availability of this Configuration Service Provider. For more information about roles, see Security Roles and Default Roles for Configuration Service Providers.

The Metabase Configuration Service Provider also supports the <language code> parameter, which allows localized text to be used on the device.

The following table shows the default settings for all parameters in this Configuration Service Provider. The default security role maps to each subnode unless specific permission is granted to the subnode.

Access type

Read/write

Roles allowed to query and update setting

Manager

label

Provides user-friendly language labels in the user interface.

options

Groups option values that are available for this specific entry in different languages.

<language code>

This parameter is used in the label characteristic to identify the text for the label in a specific language, and in the option characteristic to identify the code for that language. The following table lists the possible hexadecimal values for this parameter.

access-role

This parameter is used with the label and options characteristics as a decimal value that identifies access roles. Access roles determine which security roles are allowed to access a metabase entry. Each access role is a number formed by a bitwise or from the security roles that have access to the entry. More than one role can be set for the entry. This parameter cannot be used directly under the root characteristic.

For a list of possible security roles and corresponding role values, see Security Roles.

datatype

This parameter is used with the label and options characteristics to identify the type of data handled by this setting. This parameter cannot be used directly under the root characteristic. The following table lists the possible values.

Value Description

bin

Binary. The setting contains a stream of binary data (octet stream).

bool

Boolean. The setting contains a boolean value.

date

Date. The setting contains a date. Both basic and extended date formats are supported.

Bb737399.note(en-us,MSDN.10).gifNote:
The setting for date should be specified by date only, and not by date+time, according to the ISO-8601 standard.

If the value is a date, only the date portion will be returned.

float

Float. The setting contains a floating point value.

int

Integer. The setting contains an integer value.

mchr

Multiplestring. The setting contains a multiplestring value.

chr or string

String. The setting contains a string value.

The setting can specify either a date + time, or a time only format. If the date + time format is used then a 'T' must appear between the date and time as a delimiter.

For more information about data types see Metabase Settings and Metabase and OMA DM.
