You can configure ID pools for Teradata Database source and target systems to allow job changes at a global level. Each pool has a unique name and defines one or more users for each system. When creating a job, you specify the ID pool by name; Data Mover examines the pool for the source and target system names and user profiles, and randomly picks an available user for that job.

In addition to being able to pick from a pool of users for the specified systems, ID pools enable you to change passwords in one place for all users specified in the pool.

Changing ID pool definitions can affect previously configured jobs.
