Can SQL Login Failed Audit show details (username AND password?) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was wondering if there was a way to not only view the username, but also the password that was used when a login failed. 

    My motivation for this is that I have a piece of software that has a built-in default SQL login.  I am trying to figure out what the password is so I can set its SQL Server login account to match so that I don't have to keep manually logging it in.

    I was hoping that the Login Failed audit would give that information but I don't see it in the log.  Does anyone have any ideas about how I can capture this information?
