    • From the General tab, select Copy Role.
  2. [Optional] Enter a name for the role, up to 25 characters.
    You can use spaces, alphanumeric characters, and underscores (_).
    The name from the original copied role is prefaced with Copied from and remains unless you change it.
  3. [Optional] Select Enable role to activate the role for use in Teradata Viewpoint.
