Resetting Password

Last updated: 2022-05-27 15:10:06


    If you forgot your database account password or need to change it while using TencentDB for MySQL, you can reset it in the console.


    • For TencentDB for MySQL, the password resetting feature has been connected to CAM; therefore, we recommend you exercise tighter control over the permission to the password resetting API or sensitive resources of TencentDB for MySQL instances by granting such permission only to appropriate personnel.
    • For data security, we recommend you regularly reset the password at least once every three months.


    1. Log in to the TencentDB for MySQL console. In the instance list, click an instance ID or Manage in the Operation column to enter the instance management page.
    2. On the instance management page, select Database Management > Account Management, find the account for which to reset the password, and click Reset Password or select More > Reset Password.
    3. In the pop-up window, enter the New Password and Confirm Password and click OK.

      The password must contain 8–64 characters in at least two of the following character types: letters, digits, and symbols \_+-&=!@#$%^\*().
