Question

How can the internal PostgreSQL database password be changed?

Environment

Tableau Server 

Answer

Tableau Server on Windows versions 2018.1 or earlier


Use the tabadmin dbpass --username [tableau|readonly] password command. For more information, see Collect Data with the Tableau Server Repository.

Tableau Server on Linux and Tableau Server on Windows version 2018.2 or later


Use the tsm data-access repository-access enable --repository-username <username> --repository-password <new password> command. For more information, see Collect Data with the Tableau Server Repository

Note: These commands do not reset the password, they update it to a new one for the desired username. This process will also require you to restart your Tableau Server once completed.
