Reset an Apache Kafka® cluster password


Once you've reset your password, all the existing endpoints as well as IDEs and DBMS interfaces to the updated cluster will stop working.

Update the Password field for each of them.

To reset the password for your Apache Kafka® cluster:

  1. Go to the Clusters page in the console.

  2. Click the cluster for which you want to reset the password.

  3. On the cluster's information page, find the Password field and click Reset.

  4. In the popup window, check the I want to reset the password box and click Reset password. You'll see the following message:

Use the ClusterService ResetCredentials method and pass the cluster ID in the cluster_id request parameter.

To find the cluster ID, get a list of clusters in the project.
