An XML-formatted representation of an instance of a policy. This class is used for meeting, mobility, presence, and unified communications policies.

The MSFT_SIPGlobalPolicyXMLData properties do not map to the Administration Tool.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all inherited properties. Properties are listed in alphabetic order, not MOF order.


class MSFT_SIPGlobalPolicyXMLData
  string ContentXML;
  boolean DefaultPolicy;
  [key] string InstanceID;
  string PolicyDN;
  string Type;


This class does not define any methods.


The MSFT_SIPGlobalPolicyXMLData class has the following properties.


Data type: string

Access type: Read/Write

Required. The XML representation of the global policy.

This value is a single-valued Unicode string. This string attribute contains the policy definition in XML format. The XML schema definition is common across different policy types, only the settings are different for each policy type.

The XML schema definition (XSD) is defined below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xs:schema id="instance" xmlns="" xmlns:xs="" xmlns:msdata="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xml-msdata">
   <xs:element name="instance" msdata:IsDataSet="true">
         <xs:choice maxOccurs="unbounded">
            <xs:element name="property" nillable="true">
                  <xs:simpleContent msdata:ColumnName="property_Text" msdata:Ordinal="1">
                     <xs:extension base="xs:string">
                        <xs:attribute name="name" type="xs:string" />

The value of this property is not case-sensitive.


Data type: boolean

Access type: Read/Write

Required. Indicates whether this is the default policy that is applied to users that lack a globally or explicitly assigned policy.

The GUID must be encapsulated between the "{" and "}" braces; for example: "{01234567-0123-4567-89AB-CDEF01234567}".

You can use code similar to the following to bind to the MSFT_SIPGlobalPolicyXMLData class. In the two examples, the dot (.) represents the local computer. To bind to a remote computer, replace the dot with the name of that computer (e.g., atl-ocs-001).


strComputer = "."
wmiQuery = "Select * From MSFT_SIPGlobalPolicyXMLData"
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colList = objWMIService.ExecQuery(wmiQuery)

Windows Powershell

$colList = Get-WMIObject MSFT_SIPGlobalPolicyXMLData –computer "."
