Have you ever worked on a SAS 9.2 installation where someone has modified the capabilities of the predefined roles, and you need to reset them back to the default configuration? Or perhaps you are trying to see if there is a particular capability and want to search using a keyword, rather than manually reading through the list in SAS Management Console?
If you answered yes to any of these questions then you might want to check out the SAS® 9.2 Intelligence Platform Desktop Application Administration Guide (PDF, HTML) and the SAS® 9.2 Intelligence Platform Web Application Administration Guide, Third Edition (PDF, HTML).
Each of the SAS applications that support roles has a matrix showing the available capabilities for that application and how those capabilities map to the application’s predefined roles. If you need to reset the predefined roles then these matrices provide the information you need. Alternatively, if you want to search for a particular capability then you can use your web-browser/PDF-viewer’s find tool to look for keywords like library, OLAP or Join.
Here is a quick list of links to the specific pages containing the role/capability matrices for each application:
On a side note, if any SAS developers or product managers happen to read this post, I think it would be great if you could search/filter capabilities in SAS Management Console. There are lots of capabilities to look through and I can only imagine the list getting longer in future versions of SAS. Perhaps a reset-role-to-default-capabilities feature too? :) Perhaps I should make a SASware Ballot suggestion.
