One of the most requested features from Metacoda customers has been a way to review all SAS® libraries registered in metadata, to see if they have been specifically protected with access controls, and to filter the list by various attributes like libref, engine, pre-assigned status, assigned server etc. Of course, to also be able to export to CSV and HTML as with the other plug-ins. The recent Metacoda Plug-ins 6.1 R8 release adds a new Library Reviewer plug-in to assist with this.
The list of libraries is presented at the top of the screen and selecting a library will Continue reading “Metacoda Plug-ins: Library Reviewer”

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.

SASMCErrorLog.txt by launching a standard text editor.

It is very rare, but occasionally, such as after an update, SAS® Management Console may fail to start. It is so rare for me that next time it happens I have usually forgotten what I did last time to fix it – hence this post.
Whenever I have seen SAS Management Console not starting correctly, especially when not showing the splash screen, it has usually been a problem with the SAS Private Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or the SAS Versioned JAR Repository (VJR) cache. With a problem like this the best place to start troubleshooting Continue reading “When SAS Management Console Fails to Start”
This is a tip for those who use the Metacoda Security Plug-ins Batch Interface for scheduled automation of SAS® metadata security reporting, testing and identity synchronization. You will find this tip useful if you are using the same configuration values in multiple batch configuration or Identity Sync Profile (IDSP) XML files and would like a way to specify these values in a single places rather than maintain them in multiple locations.
An enhancement that was added in Metacoda Plug-ins 6.1 R3 (Feb 2020) included Continue reading “Metacoda Plug-ins Tip: Replaceable Tokens”
