Updating User permissions in SAS metadata dynamically using Base SAS code

Hi,

Can we do the Metadata management with base SAS code instead of using SAS Management console. In my project we want to edit user permissions on a real time basis.

e.g. adding/removing users in the already created groups

       creating new SAS users etc.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Nikhil

SAS(R) 9.2 Intelligence Platform: Security Administration Guide

and

Better use this community not the other... https://communities.sas.com/thread/74709   (no need for duplicated posts / can be frustrating)
