ICredentialProvider::UnAdvise method (credentialprovider.h)

Used by the Logon UI or Credential UI to advise the credential provider that event callbacks are no longer accepted.


HRESULT UnAdvise();

Return value


If this method succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.


This method does not need to be implemented, and should return E_NOTIMPL if it does not. There might be no reason to call it, such as if the Logon UI or Credential UI never changes or updates.

If this method is called, it indicates that the ICredentialProviderEvents pointer provided in Advise is no longer valid. It is the responsibility of the credential provider to call Release on the provided ICredentialProviderEvents pointer during this method.


You should not use this method to clean up allocated memory for the credential provider. you should do that in the destructor of the credential provider as normal.
