Update Database Account

Description

By default, the initial administrator account you define during the Create Site operation is used as the database administrator account. However, you can use this operation to change the database administrator account credentials. To change just the password for the account, provide the password parameter. If you want to create a completely new account for the database, provide new values for the username and password parameters.

Note:
This operation will cause the database and the portal to be restarted.
