I am trying to figure out how to use a Stored process as a datasource for my Dashboard 4.3. I am publishing the output of the sas dataset to a package.

So far my Stp code looks like this.

%let _ARCHIVE_PATH = /Temp/;
%let _ARCHIVE_NAME = results;

data _null_;
rc = 0;
pid = 0;
desc = "";
call package_begin(pid, desc, nameV, rc);
%checkrc(Package init);
call insert_dataset(pid, "WORK", "MyData", "My Details",
'', rc);
%checkrc(Package data set);
length fullpath $4096;
call package_publish(pid, "TO_ARCHIVE", rc,
"archive_path, archive_name, archive_fullpath",
"&_ARCHIVE_PATH", "&_ARCHIVE_NAME", fullpath);
%checkrc(Package publish);
call symput('_ARCHIVE_FULLPATH', fullpath);
call package_end(pid, rc);
%checkrc(Package term);

I am succesful in publishing the output of the STP as an spk file(I guess it is succesful since a .spk file is being generated) in the 😧 Drive, however when i select the stored process as the Datasource it is giving me a message "The Selected Stored Process Does not create any data sets".

A spk file is an archive file, so think a .zip file.

The BI Dashboards needs a table as the data source (think SAS dataset).

Because you are effectively zipping the table, then the BI Dashboards can't read it.

Thanks for the reply.

My Question was how to use the stored process as a data source for the Dashboard, not how to use the sas dataset.

For your Ref :
Section : Stored Process indicator Data in

However My Issue was resolved , All I have to do is turnoff the STP Macros (%STPBEGIN, %STPEND) in my Stored Process. and remove the explicit PATH.
