The class represents an assembly in the Microsoft .NET environment.
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo.dll)
SQL Server requires assemblies to be registered in a database before these can be used by stored procedures, user-defined functions, triggers, and user-defined data types. In SQL Server Management Objects (SMO), the object provides programmatic access to the assembly.
To get object permissions, users can be a member of the public fixed server role.
To set object permissions, users must have ALTER permission on the assembly.
To create an assembly, users must have CREATE ASSEMBLY permission on the database or be a member of the db_owner fixed database role.
To drop an assembly, users must have CONTROL permission on the assembly.
To grant, deny, or revoke permission to other users on the assembly, users must have CONTROL permission on the assembly.
Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are safe for multithreaded operations. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
