Enter logon elements interactively
|ODBC connection||Used by ODBC applications.
Set default logon parameters as part of configuring the ODBC driver connection. The system prompts for the user password.

Enter logon elements as script components, for example, Teradata Parallel Transporter scripts submit logon elements as operator attribute values.
Logon syntax element names may vary among applications.
