  1. Review About Teradata Database Objects in the DIT to become familiar with the hierarchical relationship among Teradata directory objects. Some objects have different object classes and DNs in the native directory schema environment, but the structure is similar.
  2. Review the database objects that must exist in the directory, including the required hierarchy. See About Required Teradata Objects.
  3. Create the top level database objects in the directory. See Creating the RootNode and System Objects.
  4. Create containers for Teradata Database objects in the directory, then create Teradata Database user, role, and profile objects and insert them into the corresponding containers. See Creating Containers and Inserting Database Objects.
  5. Map directory users to Teradata Database user, role, and profile objects. See Mapping Additional Directory Users to Database User, Role, and Profile Objects.
For information on using native directory schema to create security policies and assign them to users, see Network Security Policy.
