Managed Postgresql - Password Authentication Failed

I have been using default postgres user in PgAdmin4 for administration needs. Recently I created another user through digital ocean console and limited the access. It gives me an error ‘Password Authentication Failed’ when I tried to login to newly created user from PgAdmin4.

Is there anything I am missing?

Hi there,

Once you’ve created the new user, you would also need to grant the necessary privileges for that user to the database that you want to connect to.

You can do that by following the steps here:

Let me know how it goes!

Best,
