The CimProjectData object provides the ability to search and return specific pieces of a project's configuration. The underlying APIs used by the CimProjectData object are the same as those used to browse point configuration on a remote project. In general, this object provides a convenient way to retrieve a set of attributes based on specified filter criteria. This object provides a read-only capability.
To write configuration, please see the help file for the CIMPLICITY Configuration Object Model.
