There are a number of API operations that have been re-implemented as MODEL operations. These MODEL operations retrieve description texts. The texts that are retrieved will be in the locale that was set either by the initial connection or by the locale set by the most recent call to the setRemoteLocale API operation. For earlier versions of foundation software, whose protocol is incapable of specifying locales, the locale is set to en_US.
If these operations are run outside of the context of a remote session, then the effective locale is CI_Locale::DEFAULT.
The operations are:
getPropDescription — retrieve the description of the MODEL property
getEventDescription — retrieve the description of the MODEL event
getOpDescription — retrieve the description of the MODEL event
getClassDescription — retrieve the description of the MODEL class
These MODEL operations are described in the VMware Smart Assurance MODEL Reference Guide.
