Change an existing JDBC password

Don Messier (311) | asked Jun 24 '13, 7:44 p.m.

I have an installation of RTC 4.03 where the JDBC users passwords were changed outside of the application.  I know the current password and cannot change the user's password back to the old one.  How do I hash the current password to enter into the files?

I've tried putting the new password in clear text as the value for
under the assumption that it would be auto-encrypted, to no avail.

Hi Don,

You should be able to log in to https://server:port/jts/admin or ccm/admin whether connectivity to the DB is available or not.  From there, go to Server -> Database Connection and update the password there.  Once updated, you'll notice the encrypted value in the will change.  That should be all you need to do, but make sure it is done from jts/admin, ccm/admin, qm/admin if you are using all of the CLM applications and need to update the password for all of them.  Hope it helps,
