PgBouncer gets SCRAM!Three days ago PgBouncer 1.11 has been released, and one feature that immediately caught my attention was the addition of /SCRAM support for password/.
SCRAM is currently the most secure way to use password for PostgreSQL authentication and has been around since version ~10~ (so nearly two years).
SCRAM support for PgBouncer has been a /wanted feature/ for a while, since not having it prevented users of this great tool to use
SCRAM on the clusters.
Luckily, now this has been implemented and the configuration of the PgBouncer account** is similar to the plain and ~md5~, so it is very simple.
I really love PgBouncer and, with this addition, I can now upgrade my servers to /SCRAM/! Thank you PgBouncer developers!
