An account string assigned in the user or profile definition for the logged on user. If the account string is not valid for the user, an error occurs.
Changing the account string changes the access level for the session or request only if different workload management rules apply to the new account.
A user cannot use the SQL version of the SET SESSION ACCOUNT command to change the account for any other user.
To change accounts for another user, you can use the Performance Manager SET SESSION ACCOUNT command. See Teradata Vantage™ Application Programming Reference, B035-1090.
