Database password authentication

Hi there,

Any help is appreciated in advance.

I am having an issue trying to run the following commands due to password failure:
./gradlew --no-daemon run

This command is found on the open platform demo readme:

I have tried a million and one passwords however I am still getting the error:
org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: FATAL: password authentication failed for user "axelor"

I know I must update the password in the file as below: (however I cannot find a working password)

If someone could please let me know the password that would be just fantastic!
I have already tried: axelor, admin, secret and numerous others.


db.default.driver = org.postgresql.Driver
db.default.ddl = update
db.default.url = jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/open-platform-demo-dev
db.default.user = axelor
db.default.password =


#db.default.driver = com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
#db.default.ddl = update
#db.default.url = jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/axelor_demo_dev
#db.default.user = axelor
#db.default.password =
