The Unregister method removes the authentication module with the specified authentication scheme from the list of authentication modules called by the Authenticate method. The module must have been added to the list using the Register method before it can be removed from the list.

The following example uses the Unregister method to remove an authentication module with the specified authentication scheme from the list of registered modules.


Dim registeredModules As IEnumerator = AuthenticationManager.RegisteredModules
DisplayAllModules()

registeredModules.Reset()
registeredModules.MoveNext()

'Get the first Authentication module registered with the system
Dim authenticationModule1 As IAuthenticationModule = CType(registeredModules.Current, IAuthenticationModule)

'Call the UnRegister method to unregister the first authentication module from the system.
Dim authenticationScheme As [String] = authenticationModule1.AuthenticationType
AuthenticationManager.Unregister(authenticationScheme)
Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Successfully unregistered {0}", authenticationModule1)
'Display all modules to see that the module was unregistered.
DisplayAllModules()
'Call the Register method to register authenticationModule1 module again.
AuthenticationManager.Register(authenticationModule1)
Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Successfully re-registered {0}", authenticationModule1)
'Display the modules to verify that 'authenticationModule1' has been registered again.
DisplayAllModules()
