Hi, We are trying to enable password history enforcing feature for our azure managed postgres server. But we are unable to find it. I would like to know if postgresql has this feature? Appreciate your help. Thank you.

    Hi @Srikanth Dusa

    I believe Azure Database for PostgreSQL - Flexible Server does not provide a built-in feature to enforce password history.

    For better security, it's a good practice to periodically rotate your admin password and database users passwords.

    The Salted Challenge Response Authentication Mechanism (SCRAM) greatly improves the security of password-based user authentication by adding several key security features that prevent rainbow-table attacks, man-in-the-middle attacks, and stored password attacks, while also adding support for multiple hashing algorithms and passwords that contain non-ASCII characters.

    Here is a reference document - https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/postgresql/flexible-server/concepts-security

    Thank You!
