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.
Example: Creating an External Role
The following request creates an external role named rhh that is managed by the Teradata Database, for use in assigning privileges to users in a directory:
CREATE EXTERNAL ROLE rhh;
