Add a password to SAS Enterprise Guide project file

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

Is there a way to put a password on a whole SAS EG project?

 

Thanks.

Re: SAS EG Password protect

Yes.  Select File->Project Properties, then the Security tab.

Heed the note: once you apply the password, there is no opening the project without it.  SAS Tech Support can't even help with that.  We recommend that you create a backup and store in a safe place...you know, just in case.

Even if it's possible, I think it should be avoided. Use folder authorization instead.
Just out of curiosity, why do you find a project secret, you haven't typed in passwords in clear text there, have you?
