Folder Authorization permissions

I am new for SAS Admin. Please help me.

 

How can i create folder authorization permissions in a table or report format from metadata tables. I used %mdsecds but i am getting below error.

 

ERROR: Some code points did not transcode.
ERROR: Encountered during XMLInput parsing at or near line 7499, column 56.
ERROR: The definition for the "FOLDERS" table is not well-formed or is corrupt.

 

I want to consolidate all folder and sub-folder authorization and which group have permissions. 

 

 

Thanks

Re: Folder Authorization permissions

In that case try running the code in a SAS session that has been configured to use UTF-8 session encoding

Re: Folder Authorization permissions

The first error suggests a difference in session encoding and incompatible characters. The subsequent errors most likely stem from the first.

 

The metadata server is UTF-8 and the SAS process where you are running %mdsecds is most likely a single byte encoding such as latin1. You can confirm this by running:

 

proc options;

run;

 

.. and looking for the encoding option.

Thanks for reply Paul, Please see encoding value from below line.

 

ENCODING=LATIN1   Specifies the default character-set encoding for the SAS session.

 

Thanks
