Database.AsymmetricKeys Database.AsymmetricKeys Database.AsymmetricKeys Property

Definition

Gets a collection of AsymmetricKey objects. Each AsymmetricKey object represents an asymmetric key defined on the database.

public:
 property Microsoft::SqlServer::Management::Smo::AsymmetricKeyCollection ^ AsymmetricKeys { Microsoft::SqlServer::Management::Smo::AsymmetricKeyCollection ^ get(); };
[Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc.Metadata.SfcObject(Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc.Metadata.SfcContainerRelationship.ObjectContainer, Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc.Metadata.SfcContainerCardinality.ZeroToAny, typeof(Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.AsymmetricKey))]
public Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.AsymmetricKeyCollection AsymmetricKeys { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property AsymmetricKeys As AsymmetricKeyCollection
Property Value

An AsymmetricKeyCollection object that represents all the asymmetric keys defined on the database.

Examples

VB

'Connect to the local, default instance of SQL Server.  
Dim srv As Server  
srv = New Server  

'Reference the AdventureWorks2012 database.  
Dim db As Database  
db = srv.Databases("AdventureWorks2012")  

'Display all the asymmetric keys on the database.  
Dim ak As AsymmetricKey  
For Each ak In db.AsymmetricKeys  
   Console.WriteLine(ak.Name)  
Next  

PowerShell

$srv = new-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server("(local)")  
$db = New-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Database  
$db = $srv.Databases.Item("AdventureWorks2012")  
foreach ($ak in $db.AsymmetricKeys)  
{  
   Write-Host $ak.Name  
}  

Remarks

Specific asymmetric keys can be referenced by using this collection by specifying the name of the asymmetric key. To add a new asymmetric key to the collection, call the asymmetric key constructor AsymmetricKey.
