The ID of a task depends on what type of task it is. The Task Id is made up of the following parts.
The different parts are separated with dots.
|MPID||This is the management pack ID. This must be included to make the task ID unique in the management group. To learn more about MPID, see Management pack naming|
|ClassDescription||This should be the same as the description of the class that is used as target for the task. To learn more about class description, see Class naming|
|Description||This is a short description of the task, without spaces.|
|Task Type||This is the type of task. Possible values are Agent or Console.|
|Suffix||This should be Task.|
Using the table above we get the following examples:
|Task Type||Task Information||Task ID (MPID left out)|
|Agent Task||Starts a windows service.||MPID.ClassDescription.StartService.Agent.Task|
The task display name is harder to set any fixed rules for. The display name is what is shown in the Operations Console and should be clear so that the operator easily can figure out what the task does.
Based on the examples above the following display names coud be used.
|Task ID (MPID left out)||Display Name|
