Programming Reference

You must have EXECUTE FUNCTION privilege on the function or on the database containing the function.

You can specify an SQL SECURITY clause with the DEFINER option in the CREATE/REPLACE FUNCTION statement. This option is the default for an SQL UDF. SQL SECURITY DEFINER means that when an SQL UDF is invoked, Teradata Database verifies that the immediate owner and the creator of the UDF have the appropriate privileges on the underlying database objects referenced in the UDF. If the creator does not exist when the privileges are checked, an error is returned.

To invoke a UDF that takes a UDT argument or returns a UDT, you must have the UDTUSAGE privilege on the SYSUDTLIB database or on the specified UDT.
