Changing the database account password

Post by pconway » Mon 02 Nov 2020 01:00

Hello, we recently purchased dotConnect for PostgreSQL. We're currently using it to connect to a local PostgreSQL database.

Is it possible to change the database account password using the dotConnect software? (i.e. not the password in the connection string, but the password that PostgreSQL server accepts)

Try this code:

Code: Select all

  var conn = new Devart.Data.PostgreSql.PgSqlConnection();
  conn.ConnectionString = "...";
  conn.Open();
  var cmd = conn.CreateCommand();
  cmd.CommandText = "ALTER USER username WITH PASSWORD 'newpassword'";
  cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
