Although I know this is not the correct forum for this question, here goes:
Is there an "easy" way, in SAS, to get a listing of what users are using which modules? In other words, how do I find which users are registered for Web Studio for Reports, what users are registered for MS Add-in, what users are registered for Information Map and so on?
If anyone can help, I sure would appreciate it, especially since I have only been using SAS for six weeks! Thanks in advance!
Incidentally, why is there not a section in these forums for questions like this?
I don't think that's entirely true -- the folks who support BI -do- participate in these forums -- there's a stored process forum and an EG forum and if you look, both of those forums do get postings about the BI platform that are answered by these people.
However, a lot of times, a question has so many dependencies on which piece of the BI platform you're talking about or raises issues (as this one does) about how Access Controls work in SAS Management Console to control resources, that's it's NOT a simple question with a simple answer.
When you install and configure the Enterprise Intelligence platform/BI Platform, you have to set up your users and groups in the metadata. You control access to the data, to the libraries, to their ability to access stored processes. I do not recall a specific way to tell which -users- are "registered" to access particular client applications like Web Report Studio or EG or the SAS add-in -- it was my understanding that the model was that you set security on the resources available to the client application -- not to the client application itself.
In my mind, this is a question best answered by Tech Support -- where they can direct the question to somebody who really KNOWS how the security model and access controls work.
