Can't create User from Teradata Studio UI

Dear Teradata community,

I am new to Teradata Studio and I have a problem with user creation.

I have downloaded Teradata Studio Express, and created a connection to my Teradata VM as DBC. I am now trying to create a new User from the UI. 

For this, I go on the Data Source Explorer, right click on Databases > Teradata > Create (at least that's what my teammates get). However, when I right click on Databases>Teradata, I only get the option of "Find objects". Also, I am able to create a user from the command line (via the SQL editor).

Any idea on why I am not able to create anything from the UI? 

Thanks in advance for any help,

Amina

Re: Can't create User from Teradata Studio UI

I have investigated the question further. I am realising that unlike my teammates, I am not able to open any perspectives. Indeed, the Window menu offers the ability to change perspectives in my teammate's Teradata Studio but I cannot do such a thing. Hence they are able to use Teradata Studio as "Teradata Administrator" but I can't. 

Any guesses on how to work this out and what the reason might be ? I am running Windows 7.

Thanks

You will need to install Teradata Studio for administrative functionality.

Re: Can't create User from Teradata Studio UI

Hi,

how to get "Teradata Studio for administrative functionality" ?

i just installed STUDIO Express V15.00 (on a V14.10.0.4 platform) and i do not find the Administrator perspective:

the trick is that i can open some Tools Windows belonging to TD Admin, like "Transfer history", but i can't display any other perspective than "SQL

Development".

Thanks for help,

Pierre, You need to download Teradata Studio, instead of Teradata Studio Express. Teradata Studio has the administrator perspective.
