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.

Before you start

To complete the actions presented below, you must have:

  • A Scaleway account logged into the console
  • Owner status or IAM permissions allowing you to perform actions in the intended Organization
  • 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.
