Several portlets require you to log in to Teradata Database to take actions such as aborting a query or session, changing a workload, changing a priority, or releasing a query from the delay queue.

Teradata Database login information is used with your session and is retained until your current Viewpoint session ends.

The login dialog box fields are listed below.

Field Name Description
Username Teradata Database user ID.
Password Teradata Database password.
Account String Characteristics for profile member sessions in Teradata Database. An account string identifies which account is charged for the space used by the user and session and may include a priority-level Performance Group prefix code which establishes the session priority.
