Use the following advanced elements of the LOGON command to specify the non-default authentication mechanism such as LDAP or SSO:

  • LOGMECH
  • LOGDATA

External authentication allows network-attached users to be authenticated by an external agent rather than by a Teradata Database. The Teradata Database must be properly configured to support external authentication and a mechanism that supports it must be selected. Mainframe-attached users cannot use external authentication.

For more information on these two elements, see LOGMECH and LOGDATA.
