Metacoda Plug-ins Tip: View SAS Management Console Log File

In supporting Metacoda Plug-ins, one of the most useful things for us to review is the SAS Management Console log file SASMCErrorLog.txt. If you have ever had to look at this file yourself, or ask someone to email you a copy, then you would know it can be tricky to explain where to find it. So, to make it easier to access, and remove this friction, we have added a small enhancement to the recently released Metacoda Plug-ins 6.1 R6.

After installing Metacoda Plug-ins 6.1 R6, if you look in the SAS Management Console Tools menu you will see a new View SAS Management Console Log File... action. It opens the SAS Management Console log file SASMCErrorLog.txt by launching a standard text editor.

The main benefit of this Metacoda Plug-ins Batch Interface Setup Utility is the automation of much of the previous manual work involved in setting up and site-specific tailoring of the batch interface samples. It also includes additional batch exports for Authentication Domains and External Identities (from the new Auth Domain Reviewer and External Identity Manager plug-ins). The Metacoda recommended practice starter tests for SAS metadata security have also been updated.
