You can use the System Center Service Manager Authoring Tool to view the properties of a class and to change details such as the name or description of a class.
In the Management Pack Explorer, you can select a class and view its details in the Details pane. If you select a class that is defined in an unsealed management pack, you can change the name and description of that class.
To change the name or description of a class
Ensure that both the Management Pack Explorer and Details panes are open.
Click File and then click Open.
In the Open File dialog box, select an unsealed management pack that contains the class that you want to change, and then click Open. For example, open the <Authoring Tool installation folder> \Samples\Woodgrove.AutomatedActivity.AddComputerToGroupMP.xml sample management pack.
In the Management Pack Explorer, expand the management pack that contains the class that you want to change.
Expand Classes, and then locate and select the class that you want to change.
Select the value of the Name or Description property, and then enter the new value. Values that cannot be changed are unavailable.
In the Management Pack Explorer, right-click the management pack that contains the changed class, and click Save.
