ALTER INSTANCE statement is used to make changes to a single TiDB instance. Currently, TiDB only supports the
RELOAD TLS clause.
The newly loaded certificate, key, and CA take effect on the connection that is established after the statement is successfully executed. The connection established before this statement execution is not affected.
When an error occurs during reloading, by default, this error message is returned and the previous key and certificate continue to be used. However, if you have added the optional
NO ROLLBACK ON ERROR, when an error occurs during reloading, the error is not returned, and the subsequent requests are handled with the TLS security connection disabled.
ALTER INSTANCE RELOAD TLS;
ALTER INSTANCE RELOAD TLS statement only supports reloading from the original configuration path. It does not support dynamically modifying the loading path or dynamically enabling the TLS encrypted connection feature when TiDB is started. This feature is disabled by default when you restart TiDB.
