Vantage requires you to associate a username with a password when you first create a user. You must specify a password, even if temporary. Otherwise the Parser rejects the statement as incomplete.

The security administrator can prompt users for a new password upon first logon for these reasons:
  • At the time of installing a new system, the administrator has created generic passwords for all users and wants them to choose their own passwords.
  • New password requirements must be enforced. For example, if the security administrator wants to require mixed case and wants all users to change their passwords.
Teradata password rules do not apply to external authentication. See Teradata Vantage™ - Analytics Database Security Administration, B035-1100.

To use SQL, see the information about passwords for CREATE USER in Teradata Vantage™ - SQL Data Definition Language Syntax and Examples, B035-1144.
