Normally, users that log on to Teradata Database have been defined in the database using a CREATE USER request. However, because many potential database users may already be defined in a directory running within the client network, Teradata Database allows for authentication and authorization of users by supported directories. Integration of directory managed users simplifies administration by eliminating the need to create a database instance for every user.

For information on how to set up the database and the directory for integrated user management, see Security Administration.
