FAQ
One can, however, simply delete the forgotten password
and create another for temporary usage until the user
in question can create a new one. (At least one could
in 7.4, I have not tried it in 8.0.)

Hi,

Does postgres support any system functions that
decode/decrypt the user passwords stored in pg_shadow
system catalog.

Is there a way to retrieve the passwords, if
forgotten.
No. They are MD5 and are designed to be
unencryptable.
