Moving generated files to share point folders using SAS

Dear Team,

 

I am using SAS 9.4M2 server version on Linux environment.

Can any please suggest best ways to move generated .txt or .xlsx files on Linux environemnt to directly Share Point folders using base SAS programs?

Your suggestions are more appreciable.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Pavan.

Re: Moving generated files to share point folders using SAS

I would speak with your IT group about it.  Sharepoint can be accessed via network path, much like any network and use copy commands as normal.  However, you will need to have permissions setup, also the process needs to be approved, other people are likely to use that area and may not want files updated when you want to post them etc.   You may need a holding area or to post to a network drive then have an approval upload etc.

Thank you RW9 for the valuable advice.

I know it is easier to access share point folders on windows environment using URN paths. I wondered if you can suggest how share point library folders can be accessed on Linux environment.

Its exactly the same method, regardless of operating system.  The syntax however will be slightly different.  Again, you need to speak with your IT people so they can give you the correct path to area, and provide you with the relevant accesses.
