Configuring User Credentials for CxDB Connectivity

The purpose of this instruction is to configure the user credentials used for CxDB connectivity.

To change the user credentials used for CxDB connectivity:

  1. Locate the properties configuration file, found in the Config folder in the Checkmarx Risk Management folder (for example: C:\Program Files\Checkmarx\Checkmarx Risk Management\Config).

  2. Locate the 2 keys relevant to the CxDB connection: DB_USER and DB_PASSWORD.

  3. Enter both new user name and new password, and then save the file.

  4. Restart the CxARM service, which will automatically update the values and encrypt the password data in the CxARM DB.


After updating the user name and password, these values will be deleted from the file.
