Hi, I just made a video to show how you can automate migration from SAS Enterprise Guide to SAS Viya.
It is based on a public repository here: https://github.com/larsatsas/auto-eg2viya so if you want to try this out yourself and have access to an environment with Enterprise Guide as well as a SAS Viya environment, you may want to try this out yourself.
As many now are considering migrating Enterprise Guide projects to SAS Viya - I wanted to see how we could automate this quite tedious process that requires tight attention to details.
As humans we are not always good at this – we get bored and sloppy, and mistakes may happen.
So why not automate this and have a computer do this for us? With CICD and devops being a thing, doing migration through CICD seems to be a sensible way of attacking this. Also – many of the tools for migration are well suited for automation – most of them have command-line options.
And as a CICD addict and true believer in all things agile, going cicd on migration makes a ton of sense.
The repository have content and guidance on:
Understanding and setting up the environments to prepare for CICD
How to use git to transfer content between SAS94 and SAS Viya
Using github actions to automate importing and validation of sas content to SAS Viya
Watch the video and let me know what you think - and do take a peak at the repo mentioned above.
