A database user name for a logon can take the following forms:

  • A simple user name, for example, username
  • A user name with distinguishing information, for example, username@domain
    User names such as username@domain must be created enclosed in double quotation marks. However, the quotation marks are optional when specifying the user name in a logon string.

For information on creating users, see Creating Users and Granting Privileges.
