Changing the PostgreSQL Database Password


When you perform database Backup and Recovery operations or configure Configure CCM Wizard Properties in non-HA mode or HA modes, you may encounter situations where you need to use the database credentials.

The CCM server uses the cliqr account to connect to the database, the password for this account is also read from the configuration file. While the database username and password is cliqr, you can change these credentials.

Be sure to change the PostgresDB password and update the file to reflect the correct password.

You can manually change the password on MGMTPOSTGRES VMs or RDS and then update the username in the CCM through the database config wizard (see Configure HA Wizard Properties for additional context).


To change the default password for the PostgreSQL database (cliqrdb) from cliqr to a password of your choice, follow this procedure.

If you change the default database password, remember to use the changed password in place of the default cliqr password provided in the documentation.

  1. Log into the database server using the default credentials:
    • Username: cliqr
    • Password: cliqr
  2. Change the PostgreSQL database password using the following commands:

    psql -U cliqr
    psql -U cliqr -d cliqrdb
    alter user "cliqr" WITH PASSWORD '<new_password>';
  3. Log out and login again using the new password.
  4. Remember to use the new PostgreSQL database password when you see the cliqr password in documentation.
