What' are the libraries when you "select the data set that you want to Forecast" in Forecast Studio?

Hi all,

 

   My quick question is what are the libraries when you at the step of "select the data set that you want to Forecast" in SAS Forecast Studio? The libraries I can see in Forecast studio are attached. BTW, I am using SAS Forecast Studio in SAS linux server.

 

1) I only can see the base SAS libraries such as Sashelp, Sasuser and work etc.  I could not load my forecast data to any of these libraries.

2) If you have extra libraries (compare to my attached list) that you can load your forecasting data to there, please let me know who have the right to set up that library and how to do that?

Your help is appreciated! Really want to start to load my data and do forecasting!

 

Thanks,

Jade

@Jade_SAS

When you connect with SAS Forecast Studio to a SAS server a SAS session gets invoked for you. As part of this session invocation SAS libraries get assigned.

Because this library assignment happens as part of SAS invocation the library definitions must be in a place where the SAS invocation process will pick it up.

Ideally that's in SAS Metadata. Using SAS Management Console you can define additional libraries in SAS Metadata (must be pre-assigned). Implementation of such SAS Metadata definitions are likely a SAS Admin task.

Alternatively you can also define such library definitions in a SAS Autoexec. That's the old way of doing things and using SAS Metadata instead is the preferred way. Changes to a SAS Autoexec are a SAS Admin task.

 

So: Contact the SAS Admin at your site and request the library definitions you need.

@PatrickThank you! Is there any specifics about the library in SAS Forecast Studio? I don't know how to mention to the admin about the library.

Hi @Jade_SAS

 

You want to access data which is stored either in a database or as SAS files in a folder. In order to do so you need a SAS Library defined which points to this location. That's how SAS works and you can expect a SAS Admin to understand this.

 

Should there be something unclear then it's fully documented under:

"SAS Forecast Server Administrator's Guide" chapter "Creating and Configuring Libraries"
