MySQL Connector/J 8.0 Developer Guide  /  Connector/J Reference  /  Connecting Using PAM Authentication

6.10 Connecting Using PAM Authentication

PAM authentication support is enabled by default in Connector/J 8.0, so no extra configuration is needed.

To disable the PAM authentication feature, specify mysql_clear_password (the method) or com.mysql.cj.protocol.a.authentication.MysqlClearPasswordPlugin (the class name) in the comma-separated list of arguments for the disabledAuthenticationPlugins connection option. See Section 6.3, “Configuration Properties” for details about that connection option.
