When a user accessing a Teradata Database is authenticated by the Teradata Database, values for the security attributes should be specified as follows:
Make sure that any UserName specified in a Teradata PT job script has the privileges necessary to carry out all operations covered by the logon.
|UserName||The name of the user being authenticated for access to Teradata Database||Required.
Specify a Teradata Database user name and password.
For information about creating users and assigning passwords, see Security Administration (B035-1100).
|UserPassword||The password associated with the UserName|
|TdpId||Identifies the connection to the Teradata Database||Optional.
If you don't specify a TdpId, the system will use the default TdpId, as defined in the Teradata Client clispb.dat.
To specify a TdpId, do the following:
|LogonMech||The security mechanism used to authenticate the user.
TD2 is required for all Teradata Database authentication.
|Optional, depending on security setup.
TD 2 is the default mechanism and the system will automatically defer to it unless the default has been set to another mechanism or TD 2 has been disabled.
|LogonMechData||Data required only by external authentication mechanisms to complete the logon.||LogonMechData is not required for Teradata Database authentication, and is ignored.|
