Is there any way to create dataset with list of SAS metadata roles and associated capabilities?
I found how to list users with associated groups. http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/lrmeta/63180/HTML/default/viewer.htm#p1k9zipe59ha2an1pq3...
I also found macro %MDUEXTR () which give me a lot of useful information. But there is no info about application actions.
I`m not very familiar with browing metadata tree but i found that capabilities are in ApplicationActions tree.

I want to extract this info from metadata via code in SAS Base, so i put this question here.
Of course I have a lot of SAS apps in my depot:
EG,EM,SAS VA, SAS VS.
Where should I ask this question?

Your question is correctly placed in the Administration community as managing metadata is a key Admin responsibility.
Trying to unravel the metadata structure is hard. An alternative approach might be to check out the Metacoda SAS plugins to SAS Management Console:

That's what I would go with: MetaCoda. For things like that, these plug-ins are extremely helpful.
I "played" around with it a lot and it is a great complementing option for what SAS security already offers.
