    Changing Authentication from TRUST to md5 while connecting to postgres

    George Geo

      Hi All,

      Postgresql is connecting without password by default. Am trying to restrict it by using "md5" authentication instead of "Trust".

      Steps followed
      i. The password of  tabwgadmin entered in a file “D:\Tableau Server\8.3\templates\config-defaults.yml” as a plain text
      ii. Changes need to be done in pg_hba.conf. Here you need to modify the authendication method from “trust” to “md5”

      But once server restarts pg-hba.config resets back to Trust.


      Anyone has done this md5 authentication successfully, Please help?
