To integrate an option in Authoring pane to create custom classes
There is no option to create classes in SCOM 2012 authoring pane. We have to use MP author or other third party tool or do a manual xml editing. It would be nice if we have a way to create custom classes in SCOM authoring pane it self.

I like this suggestion. And it does not only apply to SCOM 2012 R2.
The only 2 options to implement custom monitoring using the console for a Windows Computers is:
- create the monitor/rule, disable it and override it for a group.
- Create an extended class on WMI or reg key and target the extended class for the monitor/rule
This is ugly.
It would be nice to have the option to create a class based on reg/script/wmi/.. based on the class:
- Microsoft. Windows. ComputerRole
- Microsoft. Windows. LocalApplication
Like this the health will roll-up in the Windows Computer object.
