SAS BI Dashboard 

 

SAS® BI Dashboard
Use dashboards to monitor key performance indicators that convey how well your organization is performing. Create, maintain, and view your dashboards through an easy-to-use web-based interface, such as the SAS Information Delivery Portal. SAS BI Dashboard is part of the SAS® Enterprise BI Server.

SAS BI Dashboard Design is where you design your dashboards and layouts (SAS BI Dashboard Designer)

 

You should be able to access it with the standard URL of http://yourwebserver.yourdomain.com:8080/SASBIDashboard  (if using TLS then change to HTTPS and likely default port is 8343)

 

SAS Web Report Studio 

SAS® Web Report Studio
View, author, share and explore reports in a web browser with this easy-to-use query and reporting application. SAS Web Report Studio helps you make faster, better decisions while freeing IT staff, minimizing administrative overhead and maximizing resources. SAS Web Report Studio is part of the software offering SAS® Enterprise BI Server.

You should be able to access it with the standard URL of http://yourwebserver.yourdomain.com:8080/SASWebReportStudio (if using TLS then change to HTTPS and likely default port is 8343)

 

In a standard deployment, you should be able to find exact URLs within SAS Management Console:

 

  1. Log into SAS Management Console
  2. In the Plugins tab expand "Application Management" (usually at the bottom)
  3. Expand "Configuration Manager"
  4. Expand "SAS Application Infrastructure"
  5. Find "BI Dashboard X.X", right-click and select Properties (X.X is whatever your version number is)
  6. In the Properties window click on the "Internal Connection" tab.
  7. This tab should have all the properties for the URL

For Web Report Studio, do the exact same thing, except look for "Web Report Studio X.X" in step 5.

 

You could also look for the "Instructions.html" file within your <sasconfig>/Lev1/Documents folder of the web application server (if it's multi-tiered and on its own server).  After initial deployment it will have all the configured web apps and their URLs.

Hi @senu188 

 

That's great! I am sure you will love working with SAS platform!

You can find things about whats installed on your server by checking the file "Instructions.html" located default at location <sas-config>/Lev1/Documents.

 

You should also refer to the documentation (Installation and configuration report) shared by the consultant who have configured the platform.
