Azure SQL database – Reset administrator password

-> I was trying to login to a Azure SQL database using SQL Server management studio and got below error,

TITLE: Connect to Server
Cannot connect to
Login failed for user ‘jvivek2k1’. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 18456)

For help, click:

-> I have created this for testing long time ago and don’t remember the password.

-> I decided to reset the administrator password for this Azure SQL Database using below instructions,

  1. Login to Azure portal.
  2. Navigate to the Azure SQL database and click on “Server Name url”,

3. Once in “SQL Server”, click on reset password,

-> I was able to login to Azure SQL database just fine.

Thank You,
