The password is safely stored in the keychain and it can be deleted from the keychain without the user needing to enter the (keychain) password. The keychain is unlocked when the user logs in into the operating system.
Be careful when using this function, a deleted password can no longer be retrieved.
If you specify an account and/or yourID combination for which no password exists, the plug-in returns error code $$-25300.


Set Variable [ $ErrorCode ; Encr_DeletePasswordFromKeychain ( "-Unused" ; "John Deere" ) ]

This will delete the password for the account “John Deere” from the keychain.

Example 2

Set Variable [ $ErrorCode ; Encr_DeletePasswordFromKeychain ( "-Unused" ; 
				"Sales" ; "Invoices|Notes|REC1001" ) ]

This will remove the password from the keychain which was stored with the account parameter “Sales” and the yourID parameter “Invoices|Notes|REC1001”.
