I am currently working on a project, where they use Enterprise Guide as a client. Unfortunately I found the "My Folder" location not writable (nor accessible) and the Shared Folder points to nirvana.
My question is: Can I alter these two locations (My Folder and Shared) as an ordinary User? ... and if yes: How? 🙂
Thank you very much in advance.
"My Folder" and "Shared" are elements within the metadata repository, so they have no "physical" location.
Permissions have to be set correctly by the SAS admin(s), and only metadata objects can be stored there.
Thank you for your kind response, Kurt!
So this is a different thing than the Files Folder in Sas Studio I take it.
Is there any piece of Documentation you could point to that sheds some light on the EG behaviour? I did not manage to find any appropriate entry in the SAS Online Help.
"Files" or "My Files" for EG or Studio is set in the workspace server definition in SAS metadata (Management Console).
Last time I used EG, you could save project files "in metadata", but this only put a link into metadata which pointed to the WebDAV component of the SAS web server, where the actual files were stored.
The SAS Users Group for Administrators (SUGA) is open to all SAS administrators and architects who install, update, manage or maintain a SAS deployment.
