The JSON Web Token (JWT) authentication mechanism enables single sign-on (SSO) to the Teradata Database after the user successfully authenticates to Teradata UDA User Service. The UDA User Service authenticates users to various UDA applications and services, such as Teradata AppCenter and the Teradata® Query Service (REST services). JWT allows a user that has been authenticated to one of the applications or services to do a single sign-on to establish a session with the Teradata Database.

Benefits

  • Provides single sign-on to the Teradata Database after successfully authenticating to the UDA user service.
  • Includes API support for all clients (CLIv2, JDBC, ODBC, and .NET).

Considerations

  • To enable JWT, the TDGSS user configuration file must be configured and a tpareset must be done.

Additional Information
