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 and assigns the default role and email domain.

  1. From the Admin menu, open the User Manager portlet.
  2. From the User List view, click Add User.
  3. Enter the portal username for the user account.
  4. Enter the first name, last name, and email address for the user account.
  5. 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.
  6. [Optional] In the Password field, enter a preliminary password for the user account. Externally authenticated passwords are stored in the external source, such as LDAP, and validated from that source.
  7. Re-enter the password exactly as it was entered previously.
  8. Click Apply.
