You can edit a Teradata Viewpoint user account, except the portal username. The username is defined when the user account is created using the User Manager portlet or it is stored in LDAP when the user is externally authenticated.
  1. From the Users view, browse the list of users or use the filters to find users.
  2. Click a user name.
  3. Choose an authentication method:
    • Select the Authenticate externally check box to authenticate the selected user from an external source, such as LDAP.

      Externally authenticated passwords are stored in the external source, such as LDAP, and validated from that source.

    • Clear the Authenticate externally check box to authenticate the selected user from the Teradata Viewpoint internal database.
  4. [Optional] Change the first name, last name, or email address for the user account.
  5. Click Apply.
  6. [Optional] Change the password if it is not authenticated externally. For more information, see Changing a User Password.
