Teradata Database automatically grants permission for all users defined in the database to logon from all connected client systems. But administrators can, for example:

  • Modify current or default logon privileges for specific users.
  • Give individual users permission to log on to the database only from specific mainframe or workstation interfaces.
  • Set the maximum number of times a user can submit an unsuccessful logon string.
  • Enable authentication of the user by an external application, such as Kerberos or LDAP.
  • Restrict access to the database based on the IP address of the machine from which a user logs on.
