Hey folks,

Is there any alternative to using the pool_passwd file to maintain the user/password list  for PostgreSQL MD5 authentication?  This works well for us in typical hardware scenarios.  However, maintaining and updating the pool_passwd file when new users are added or passwords are changed is more challenging in a more restrictive cloud or docker environment.  Has anyone devised a best practice or better way of handling PostgreSQL user account changes for when user authentication is required?  A different authentication method, perhaps?
