  • If Teradata Database users are authenticated or authorized externally, evaluate the need to configure directory search properties to optimize search efficiency. See Configuring LDAP Properties to Narrow the Search Base.
    Teradata recommends that you configure the search properties if you manage Teradata Database users in a directory.
  • For directories that require use of complete DNs in the user logon, you can configure an identity map to allow use of simple usernames in place of the DN. See Using Identity Mapping.
  • You can configure an identity search to efficiently find a user in the directory, regardless of the user location or whether the directory has a strict hierarchical structure. See Using Identity Searches.
