If you forgot your database account password or need to change it while using TencentDB for SQL Server, you can reset it in the console.
- For TencentDB for SQL Server, the password resetting feature has been connected to CAM; therefore, you are recommended to exercise tighter control over the permission to the password resetting API or sensitive resources of TencentDB for SQL Server instances by granting such permission only to appropriate personnel.

Log in to the TencentDB for SQL Server Console. In the instance list, click an instance name or Manage in the "Operation" column to enter the instance management page.
Select the Manage Account tab, select the target account, and click Reset Password in the "Operation" column.
In the pop-up dialog box, enter and confirm the new password and then click OK.
