The following data types describe parts of the interface that are the same for all configuration object types.

You find these data types in the Common folder.

Data Type



Describes the administrative information for reading access.

These are for example:

  • User responsible for an object (ResponsibleUserAccountID)

  • Last changed by (LastChangeUserAccountID)

  • Last changed on (LastChangeDateTime)


Describes the administrative information for read access.

Here you can only specify the user who is responsible for the object (ResponsibleUserAccountID) while the system sets the last changed by value and the date of the last changes.

This restriction prevents any possibly unwanted external manipulations.


Groups together the possible error messages for all of the object types.

Error messages contain an object-type dependent part and a generic part, which is the same for all object types.
