Go Up to Sybase ASE Object Wizards

The Alias Wizard lets you map a login to an existing user in the database. You can set up aliases so that multiple users log in to the same account and therefore have the same privileges. You can also set up an alias based on individual log ins and give those users access to the same alias with the advantage that you can track their activity within the database.

To create a new alias using a wizard:

  1. Open a creation wizard for an alias. For details, see Opening an Object Wizard.
  2. Use the following topics as a guide to setting properties and performing tasks as you pass through the wizard panels:
  3. Finally, use the Execute button to create the object.
