New to SAS Admin and SAS Management Console

Dear All:

My name is Carla Jenkins. I am a new SAS Administrator, new to this community, and Management Console. I am looking for help with these three things that I see come across the network the most:

  • How to grant/remove permissions
  • How to kill a process
  • How to refresh a stored process

Moreover, please provide me with any resources that will help me learn more about SAS Management Console on my own. Thanks in advance. Take care.

  • How to grant/remove permissions
    - This is done in the Authorization tab of a metadata object. Always deny globally (eg for SASUSERS), and allow selectively
  • How to kill a process
    - which process? Defined servers can be stopped via SMC, others need to be killed via operating system. See the OS documentation.
  • How to refresh a stored process
    - As soon as the code for a STP (eg by editing the .sas file in the repository) has been modified, the change will take effect

Hi @carlarjenkins, welcome to the wonderful world of administration!  Have you seen the variety of resources on the SAS Administrators area of the support site?  It includes some videos about top tasks and other getting started help.  Specific questions -- you can count on this community to help -- just post back with those in a new message.
