Creating a trusted context

Create a trusted context for a database.

Prerequisites: Only the database security administrator (DBSECADM) role can create, modify, or delete trusted contexts. For trusted contexts, the HCL OpenAdmin Tool (OAT) for Informix® requires HCL Informix 11.70.

A trusted context is a database object that defines the properties of a trusted database connection. In a trusted connection, the tier between the client and the server can assert the identity of the client user. Trusted contexts provide better auditing oversight and security mechanisms for databases that are accessed by applications running in a middleware server or other application environment, particularly when user connections include access to database resources with restricted or sensitive privileges.

To create a trusted context:

  1. On the OAT menu, click Server Administration > Trusted Context.
  2. Click the database.
  3. Click Actions > Create.
  4. Complete the fields on the page.
