- Create external roles as shown in Creating and Dropping External Roles.
- Review directory user management options and select a user provisioning strategy. See Directory Management of Database Users.
- Create one or more directory role objects with names that match Teradata Vantage external roles and map the roles to directory group objects.
Since roles are assigned by mapping instead of role grants, assignments cannot include WITH ADMIN OPTION.
Additional considerations apply when configuring directory authorization in a Unity environment. See Teradata® Unity™ Installation, Configuration, and Upgrade Guide for Customers, B035-2523 and Teradata® Unity™ User Guide, B035-2520.
