Creates or replaces an authorization object.
An authorization object associates a database user with an OS platform user identification, allowing an external routine to run in secure mode using the context, privileges, and access control granted to the specified OS user. External routine is a generic term for UDFs, table UDFs, methods, and external SQL procedures. For information about the CREATE AUTHORIZATION trusted extensions that you use to access remote systems using QueryGrid, see your Teradata QueryGrid documentation.
You must have either the CREATE/REPLACE AUTHORIZATION or AUTHORIZATION privilege to perform the CREATE/REPLACE AUTHORIZATION statement.
Privileges Granted Automatically
DROP AUTHORIZATION to the creator of the authorization.
