Manage the ADMIN Database User

You can change the administrator user password and when locked unlock the administrator user account on Autonomous Database.

Unlock or Change the ADMIN Database User Password

You change the ADMIN database user's password using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure console.


If you have unsuccessfully attempted to authenticate with the ADMIN database user account multiple times, it may be locked out. Changing the ADMIN database user password unlocks the account automatically.
  1. Go to the Details page of the dedicated Autonomous Database whose ADMIN user password you want to change.
  2. On the Details page, select More Actions and then select Administrator Password.
  3. On the Administrator Password page enter the new password and confirm.

    The password must meet the strong password complexity criteria based on Oracle Cloud security standards. For more information on the password complexity rules see Create Database Users.

  4. Click Update.
