EXTERNAL
The role named by role_name is an external role.
External roles exist in the database, but can only be assigned to users in an LDAP-compliant directory.
For information about how to create directory objects that correspond to database external roles and map the objects to directory users (using group objects), see Teradata Vantage™ - Advanced SQL Engine Security Administration, B035-1100.
role_name
Name of the role.
For information about naming database objects, see Teradata Vantage™ - SQL Fundamentals, B035-1141.
Database and external roles share the same name space.
Databases and external roles can have the same name as a profile, table, column, view, macro, trigger, table UDF, external SQL procedure, method, UDT, or SQL procedure. However, role names must be unique among users and databases.
