Each portal username must be unique to avoid being logged off when someone logs on with the same username, such as Administrator.

If your Teradata Viewpoint portal is configured to use auto-provisioning, a user account is created automatically the first time a user logs on. Auto-provisioning validates portal usernames with the LDAP directory server and assigns the default role and email domain.

  1. From the Users view, click Add User.
  2. Enter the portal username for the user account.
  3. Choose an authentication method:
    • Select the Authenticate externally check box to authenticate the selected user from an external source, such as LDAP.

      Externally authenticated passwords are stored in the external source, such as LDAP, and validated from that source.

    • Clear the Authenticate externally check box to authenticate the selected user from the Teradata Viewpoint internal database.
  4. Enter the first name, last name, and email address for the user account.
  5. If the authentication method is not external, enter a password for the user account and enter it again to validate.
  6. Enter your admin password to authorize the changes.
  7. Click Apply.
