Citrix.Applibrary.Sdk.Packagediscoveryprofile

An object representing the configured discovery profile

The discovery root path and pair of Management and Publishing servers are mutually exclusive. I.e. a discovery session will run against either a network folder or an App-V Management and Publishing server
Setting a discovery cadence of 0 (on any period) is equivilent to setting AutomateDiscovery to False
DiscoverMsix and DiscoverAppAttach are not yet implemented and will always be interpreted as false regardles of the value supplied
DiscoverAppV is the only active use case and will always be interpreted as true regardles of the value supplied
