An internal PostgreSQL database is embedded in the Workspace ONE Access appliance and is configured and ready to use by default.

When Workspace ONE Access is installed and powered on, during the initialization process, a random password for the internal database user is generated. This password is unique to each deployment and can be found in the file /usr/local/horizon/conf/db.pwd.

The internal database is not recommended for use with production deployments. The recommended database for production deployments is an external Microsoft SQL database. After the Workspace ONE Access appliance is deployed, you connect to the external database connection when you run the Workspace ONE Access Setup wizard. See Use the Setup Wizard to Finish Configuring the Workspace ONE Access Appliance.
