What's meaning of IDENTIFIED EXTERNALLY and IDENTIFIED GLOBALLY respectively? I'm now puzzled by their concepts. Thanks in advance.

Kind regards!

IDENTIFIED EXTERNALLY is used for OS authentication

IDENTIFIED GLOBALLY is used for OID authentication(also known as EUS)

Both of these mean that password management is done outside the database.
