FPCRuleElements Object

The FPCRuleElements object provides access to collections containing the definitions of elements that are used to define rules of various types for a Forefront TMG array or the enterprise. These rule elements include content type sets, schedules, protocol definitions, Web listeners, authentication schemes, user sets, and sets of various types of network entities. Many of the properties of the FPCRuleElements object are mirrored by items in the Forefront TMG Management toolbox. The configuration settings of each of these categories of rule elements are managed programmatically through the FPCRuleElements object. The FPCRuleElements object also provides access to collections containing definitions of all the alert-triggering events that can be signaled by Forefront TMG and its extensions (add-ins) and definitions of all the RADIUS servers for authenticating VPN and Web proxy clients in an array.

This object is accessed through the RuleElements property of an FPCArray object.

This object is also accessed through the RuleElements property of the FPCEnterprise object (not available in Forefront TMG Medium Business Edition). However, the FPCRuleElements object accessed through the RuleElements property of the FPCEnterprise object does not provide access to collections of definitions of authentication schemes, events, Radius servers, or Web listeners.
