How to renew a TLS certificate for a Database Instance

Reviewed on 18 December 2023Published on 21 September 2019

The creation and management of TLS certificates is a feature included in the Managed Database for PostgreSQL offers.

A certificate is generated automatically upon the creation of a Database Instance. You can renew your certificates at any time.

Security & Identity (IAM)

To perform certain actions described below, you must either be the Owner of the Organization in which the actions will be performed, or an IAM user with the necessary permissions.

  • You have an account and are logged into the Scaleway console
  • You have a PostgreSQL or MySQL Database Instance
  1. Click PostgreSQL and MySQL under Managed Databases on the side menu. A list of your Database Instances displays.

  2. Click the database name or «See more Icon» > More info to access the Database Instance information page.

  3. Click Renew under TLS Certificate in the Database Instance Information section. A pop-up appears.

  4. Click Renew TLS certificate once you have read the warnings displayed and wish to continue.


    Renewing a certificate means you:

    • Will not be able to connect to your Database Instance with the previous certificate when using the verify-ca and verify-full.
    • Will need to download and update the new certificate for all database clients.

A green success message pops up in the top right corner of the screen to confirm the certificate has been renewed.
