Changes the account string for the session or for the request.
|IndByte||BYTE||Indicator bits that
specify which fields to treat as NULL if you are using indicator
Each bit in the byte corresponds to one field in the input data.
If data is supplied for that field, set the bit to zero.
If the data for that field is NULL (that is, there is no data supplied for that field), set the bit to 1.
The IndByte field is only required if the CLIv2 request is submitted in indicator mode.
|MONITOR software version
ID. This can be version 2 or later.
For a general explanation of monitor version choices, see MONITOR VERSION.
|ID of the host upon which the session was issued. host_id cannot exceed 1023. A host_id of zero identifies the database operator console. If you do not specify a valid host_id, an error message is returned to CLIv2. Use only if you have DBA privileges.|
|Number of the session. session_no combined with the host_idproduces a unique Session ID. If you do not specify a valid session_no, an error message is returned to CLIv2. Use only if you have DBA privileges.|
|Account string for the session or request.|
|sess_req||VARCHAR (1)||Indicator of how the new
account or priority affects requests for a specified session.
If you specify Y or y, the change applies to all current and future requests for a specified session. If no requests or steps are executing, the new account/priority takes effect at the next request, and the DBC.SessionTbl table reflects the new account/priority for the current session.
If you specify NULL, blank, N, or n, the change applies to the current request for the specified session. If no request is executing, the next request for the specified session has the old account/priority.
To use this request, you must have the ABORTSESSION or an equivalent privilege as part of your default role or this privilege must be granted directly to you.

Usage Notes - SET SESSION ACCOUNT
Before using this request, see Impact of Object Name Length on PM/API Requests.
The account or priority change is recorded in the DBC.SW_Event_Log table (accessible from the DBC.Software_Event_LogV view) with the following text in the TEXT column:
SESSION session_no HOSTID host_id CHANGED FROM ACCOUNT account TO ACCOUNT account ON sess_req
The EVENT_TAG field contains an event number. THEDATE and THETIME fields, which make up the index of the DBC.SW_Event_Log table (accessible from the DBC.Software_Event_LogV view), contain the date and time of the account/priority change. All other fields of the table are blank.
- Fail and return an error.
- Or succeed for a session, but the request in which it is running will continue to run the old (existing) account string. Future requests will run with the new account string.
For information on TASM rules, see Teradata® Viewpoint User Guide, B035-2206.
CLIv2 Response Parcels
The response returned from the database contains the following sequence of parcel types:
|Parcel Sequence||Parcel Flavor||Length
|Success||8||18 to 273||StatementNo = 1
ActivityCount = 1
ActivityType = 108 (SET SESSION ACCOUNT)
|DataInfo||71||6 to 64100||Optional; this parcel is present if request was IndicReq parcel.|
||This record contains the old account and an error code.|
|EndStatement||11||6||StatementNo = 2-byte integer|
The Data parcel sent from the host should be 39 bytes long for record mode or 40 bytes long for indicator mode.
The statement response results in a Record parcel containing:
|Field/Column Name||Data Type||Description|
CHARACTER SET UNICODE
|Existing account string.|
|An error code.|
The Error Code column can contain any of the following return codes:
|ErrPFMNoAr||3250||No access right.|
|ErrPFMBadSes||3256||User entered invalid session x HostId.|
|ErrPFMBadAcc||3292||User entered invalid account.|
|ErrPFMUpdSesTbl||3293||Failed to update the session table with the new account.|
|ErrPFMBadSesReqInd||3294||Invalid session/request indicator value for set session account.|
Sample Input - CLIv2 Request
This is an example of the request parcels sent from a mainframe client. It shows how the parcels for a SET SESSION ACCOUNT request, built by CLIv2, look when sent to the database server, where account is $Haccnt, sess_req is Y, host_id is 348, and session_no is 1000.
In this sample, the size of the response buffer is set at the maximum (64,000 bytes), although you can set it to any size. However, a minimum response size is 32,000 bytes.
|0001||Req||22||Request||SET SESSION ACCOUNT|
Sample Input - Teradata JDBC Driver Request
For an example of how the PM/API request, built in Java, appears when sent to the database server, see Teradata JDBC Driver Reference, available at https://teradata-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/doc/connectivity/jdbc/reference/current/frameset.html.
This sample shows typical values returned in character text format for SET SESSION ACCOUNT. Your application may return values in a different format.
