Reg Role creation in SAS MC to access only Schedule Manager Plug-in to users

Dear Team,

 

I am using SAS 9.4M2 and need to create "Role" in SAS Management Console so I can add users to that "Role" to get access to " Schedule Manager" plug-in only on SAS MC and users can be able to schedule jobs on their own. I am able to create the "Role" and able to restrict user's accessbile plug-ins to "Schedule Manager" . But users are unable to deploy SAS data step programs on SAS metadata as the part of scheduling. While user's trying to deploy jobs it is throwing error of "Unable to save the metadata". Can you kindly suggest how to overcome this issue.

 

Please let me know if you need any additional information.

 

Thanks,

Pavan.

You need to make sure that the user has at least WMM (write member metadata) permissions on the folder(s) to which the metadata objects for the deployed job(s) metadata object(s) will be written.

For example: I created specific folders for scheduled jobs called "Batch Jobs". That folder grants members of the group "Job Schedulers" the WMM permissions, and only members of that group can write to it. And, of course, the group "Job Schedulers" has the custom "Job Schedulers" role like you've created.
