The directory authenticates the directory user and then authorizes user privileges in the database according to these rules:

  • The directory can only authorize privileges that are defined in the database.
  • Directory users mapped to a Teradata Database user (including EXTUSER) inherit the database user privileges.
  • If the directory user is mapped to database profiles or external roles, those privileges take precedence over any privileges inherited from mapping to a database user.
