You can reset the password on the RDS console if the password for the database account is lost.

For data security, we recommend you change the password on a regular basis.


  1. Log on to the RDS console and select the target instance.
  2. Select Accounts in the left-side navigation pane.
  3. On the Account List tab page, select the account whose password you want to reset and click Reset Password.

  4. In the Reset Account Password dialog box, enter a new password and click OK. The password consists of 6 to 32 characters including letters, digits, hyphen (-), or underscores (_). A previously used password is not recommended.
