Operation Scenario

This document describes how to reset the instance password in the console.


  1. Log in to the TencentDB for MySQL Console.

    • For TencentDB for MySQL, the password resetting function has been connected to CAM; therefore, you are strongly recommended to exercise tighter control over the permission to this API (password resetting) or sensitive resources (i.e., TencentDB for MySQL instances) by granting such permission only to appropriate personnel.
    • It is recommended to reset the database password periodically with an interval of no more than 3 months.
    • The database password should contain 8-64 characters in at least two of the following character types: letters, digits, and special characters (_+-&=!@#$%^*()).
