The easiest way would be to update the license.

I don't think there is a way to suppress it.

Any option to suppress this warning would be a VERY DUMB IDEA, as it might lead to missing the final expiration, ending up with a real showstopper.

 

Renew your license, it's no big deal.

Hello @bmsampath,

 

I guess this question comes from a business requirement. I.e: several healthcare and pharma companies that consider WARNINGs as errors, so they have 0 tolerance to those messages. 

 

As you have been well advised, the best and only way to move forward is to renew the license. I understand that perhaps you/your company are restricted by the renewal payment. The solution: I think your company would need to align with your finance department and your SAS representative and SAS contracts in order to receive the renewed license earlier than default, to avoid those warning messages. in the future.

As others have said, the inconvenience of the message is real, but the confusion caused by an expired SAS license can cause bigger issues.  EG and other clients can't connect at all to an expired SAS -- the SAS session doesn't even get far enough to report that the reason you can't continue is an expired license.  In this way, the cause of the error is almost impossible for an end user to diagnose.

 

An option to suppress or "snooze" might be nice, but it would have to be applied judiciously.
