I thought that this functionality was only in SAS Viya. Without SAS Viya, you can only write SAS code in VS Code without submitting it to a SAS session.

The SAS VS Code extension will support connections to Viya, SAS 9.4 (remote via SSH), and SAS 9.4 (local via COM)

As far as I know, SODA officially supports only two development interfaces, namely SAS Studio and SAS Enterprise Guide. For VS Code to work, SODA would have to allow VS Code API calls from your PC and I suspect this would not currently be allowed for security reasons. On the other hand, there is no harm in asking SAS if they would consider it.

If you want to learn more about the VS Code SAS extension check out the github site: https://github.com/sassoftware/vscode-sas-extension/issues

 

To me it still looks experimental and a "work in progress" and is probably not mature enough yet to be considered for this use case.

I think it's theoretically possible as python can interact with SODA?

SAS 9.4 remote connections require OpenSSH and private key pairs (no userid / password support). That sounds tricky for SODA...

SODA is set up for it though. Would just need to figure out the VS side.
