These additional system-generated users are automatically created at system startup.

  • SystemFE
  • ALL

  • EXTUSER
  • EXTERNAL_AP
  • PUBLIC
  • TDPUSER
Most system-generated users perform important system-level functions. Do not alter the database privileges for any system user unless the Teradata Database documentation specifically directs you to do so. You should limit access to system-generated users to trusted administrators.

An exceptions to this rule are EXTUSER, PUBLIC, and SYS_CALENDAR, which you can administer according to site policy.

For more information on system-generated users, see Database Administration.
