When assigning policy membership to a profile, consider if the user for the session is a:

  • Teradata user object in the directory, the session uses the profile assigned to the corresponding Teradata Database user.
  • Directory principal mapped to a Teradata user object, the session inherits the profile assigned to the corresponding Teradata Database user.
  • Directory principal mapped to a Teradata profile, the session uses the corresponding Teradata Database profile even if the principal is also mapped to a Teradata user.
