how to setup new metadata folder with proper security..??

Problem Description:    I can see the newly created metadata folders in EG but dont get any option to save any SAS files in the folders. please help.

 

Our requirement:  Client wants to have a permanent folder in SAS metadata folder tree and save the business data,codes to be saved there and apply security by which a specific group has r/w access.   

 

What I have done:  I have created a new SAS metadata folder in SMC and assigned admin access to a specific id...then when I login to EG and can see the folder from EG...but I dont get any option to save any SAS files in the folders.

 

What am I doing wrong here  or what is the exact step by step process to set up a metadata folder ?

Hi there,

 

when you say you do not get any option to save, what exactly are you trying to do in EGuide?

 

As for permissions on Folders, please take a look at

ACCESS TO METADATA FOLDERS

http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/bisecag/67045/HTML/default/viewer.htm#n1ve38xbqyt4mmn1lz...

 

and

 

WORKING WITH SAS FOLDERS

http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/bisag/68240/HTML/default/viewer.htm#p1az7wj1xkvyqyn16526...

 

Do you get any error messages?

Are you running jobs using libraries in the assigned lib?

Can you log on to EG using a non-admin user? A user working with EG does not have to be/shouldn't be, an admin user.

 

Thanks

Anja
