Hi Team,

Is it possible to login or access the postgresql database on R80.10 Smart Event?
What it the default username and password?

TIA
Blason R

Can you? I'm sure it wouldn't be that hard to make a pgsql user and change some stuff up.

Should you? Thats another question. :)

It is not advised to log directly into the underlying data.

1. it is not audited
2. it is unsafe and can cause side effects regarding the persistence of the data
3. check point does not guarantee its data structure there remains throughout versions

Which is why we encourage access through Management API. It also keeps the same syntax with various versions.

I know that prior to R80 there were various .C text files that could be accessed directly, however, the data validation engines that were added to R80 may not tolerate data inconsistencies anymore.
