CROWD DB user and password reset


I need to reset the crowd DB user password soon, we're running crowd on RHEL 7.4, and MS SQL 2012 for the external database.

My questions is once the password is reset on the MS SQL side for the crowd DB user, where in the crowd server do I update the changed password? I've looked everywhere in the Crowd install directory and I'm not finding it. Every XML and config file I could find.

Thank you.

Hi @Charlie,


Crowd stores password to the DB in the crowd.cfg.xml config file which can be found in Crowd's home directory. Look for the entry:

<property name="hibernate.connection.password">secret</property>

Please test this first on some staging environment and create a backup of Crowd and it's home directory before proceeding. 

After changing this password you may need to restart Crowd.


Hope that helps,

Marcin Kempa 

Thank you very much I found it.
