How to reset the password for SAP Cloud Connector

Dear Experts,

I want to talk about how to reset the SAP Cloud Connector password that I forgot a while ago. As you know, after installing SAP Cloud Connector on the computer, the user is set to ‘Administrator‘ and password ‘manage‘. If you change the password and forget it, you need to install Cloud Connector again on the computer to reset the encryption in ‘manage’. In this case, however, all connections in the Cloud Connector will be deleted and you will have to re-establish connections.
