Creating an Audit table in SAS DI 4.21

Hi All,

We have a requirement to create a Audit log table, to capture the following details

1) JobId

2) JobName

3) StartTime

4) EndTime

5) Status

This basically is used to capture details of the the current Job, so that this can be used

to track details about the Job at all times.

If I am correct the first four has an corresponding automatic variable on a DI.

JobId - jobID

JobName - etls_jobName

For the StartTime and EndTime, you can probably use the date time function. Update start time on the pre-process and update end time on the post process.

For the Status, you can update your audit table on the post-process code and check the &syserr or &sysrc value. This is a little tricky since if you get some errors, job might abort and it might not reach the portion of the post-process.

Hope this helps.
