Define Library in Metadata

I can't find the option to create a library in Enterprise Guide Explorer in EG 7.1 (I have it in 4.3 and 6.1). "File - New" is missing from the menu.

 

Has this been intentionally dropped from EG 7?

Re: Define Library in Metadata

Hi Kurt,

 

Yes, it (the ability to define metadata libraries from EG) was intentionally removed.  As metadata definitions changed, it became increasingly difficult to support.  We decided to leave that administrative task to dedicated clients, such as SAS Management Console.

 

However, I'll share a secret...

...since we knew some folks would miss this, we added a config file option that will allow you to re-enable it.  For example, if you add the following to the SEGuide.exe.config file in your EG installation directory (make sure it is not commented out), the feature will re-appear:

 

<appSettings>
<add key="AllowMetadataLibraryModification" value="True" />
</appSettings> 

 

I confirmed the config option still works in EG 7.13.  There is no gurantee it will work in future releases.  Also, the feature is as-is.

 

Sorry for any inconvenience this causes.
