Abstract

JSON is quickly becoming the industry standard for data interchanges, especially in supporting REST APIs. Until now, importing JSON content into SAS has required significant custom code. Developing that code can be laborious, requiring transcoding, manual text parsing, and creating handlers for unexpected structure changes. Fortunately, the new JSON LIBNAME engine (in the fourth maintenance release for SAS® 9.4 and later) delivers a robust, efficient method for importing JSON content into SAS data structures.

 

This presentation is based on the following presentation from SAS Global Forum.
