Is there a way to extract the information from the "Submission Status" pane in Enterprise Guide 8?


I know we can build something pretty similar with a bunch of macro variables wrapped in a macro function that I can execute automatically before and after any tasks... but if the content is stored somewhere in a SAS library somewhere, I'd very much like to know where.



AFAIK, the submission details are buried within EG and there is no API to read it. If your goal is to identify if your SAS jobs have run successfully or not, then I find it easier to run these in batch mode, then just check the return code of the job which will be 0 if it is successful and non-zero if there are warnings or errors. The batch log itself also summarises the number of errors, if any, at the end.

The Project Reviewer task is still available and works for v8.3. Requires a download and steps to install, but you might find it useful. See the blog article here.
