If some directory users are mapped to Teradata Database users and other users are not, the setting of the LDAP AuthorizationSupported property determines which users can log on:

  • If AuthorizationSupported=“no”, only the unmapped users with names that match database user names can log on to the database, with the privileges of the matching database users.
  • If AuthorizationSupported=“yes”, only directory users that are mapped to Teradata objects can log on to the database, with privileges based on the mapped objects.
