Default time zone displacement for the specified user.

You can specify these options:

  • LOCAL
  • NULL
  • ± ‘quotestring’
  • ‘time_zone_string’

See “CREATE USER” in Teradata Vantage™ SQL Data Definition Language Detailed Topics , B035-1184 for the definitions of these options and for a comprehensive list of the time zone strings supported by Teradata Database.

Example: Creating a User Using the TIME ZONE=’time_zone_string’ Option

This example creates user_name with a default time zone displacement defined by the text string 'America Pacific'. When user_name is created, Teradata Database passes the time zone string to a system-defined UDF that validates it. The UDF is also called to retrieve the rules associated with the time zone string whenever user_name logs on.

If the value of the time_zone_string you specify is not valid, the system returns an error to the requestor.
