The following diagram shows the top level security policy structure and the container object for each policy type. Detailed diagrams and instructions for creating specific policies are shown in the topics beginning with Configuring a Security Mechanism Policy.

If a directory serves multiple Teradata Database systems with differing policy requirements, you can configure multiple policy structures, for example, a local policy and a global policy. The TdgssUserConfigFile.xml on each system must point to the related tdatPolicy object. See Configuring Security Policies in the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml.

If multiple databases served by a single directory are accessed through Unity, all databases should be subject to the same policy structure.
