Not able to find Information maps under SAS folders

Hi,

I am new to using Information Maps in SAS EG. I know that I can import an Information map in a SAS EG project. Now I have created an information map tested it and saved it under SAS folders/My Folder. But now when I try to open that Information map from SAS EG, I can not find any information map under that folder. It is completely blank. I can import some previously created information maps though from some other folders (tried saving my info map in that folder too, no luck).

Is there some steps I need to perform after I create an info map to make it available in SAS EG, like registering it in SMC (just fishing) or something.

May be, this is a very trivial/stupid question but as a beginner any help will be highly appreciated.

Regards,

Saugata.

One thought in addition to Hai.kuo. Are you using the same server connection in EG that you save the Information Map under?

Re: Not able to find Information maps under SAS folders

Per your description, this is rather odd, as building an Infomap is a completely metadata based activity, which does not require to register in metadata explicitly. I can only suggest the following:

1. Make sure the infomap is saved in the folder you want, and if it is saved, it should be visible from Infomap studio, SMC , EG and many other EBI applications.

2. Make sure in EG, 'All applicable SAS types' or 'Information map' is selected in the pull-down list when viewing SAS folders.

3. Refresh your EG connection.

4. If none of those works, prepare to contact SAS tech support.

Good Luck,

Haikuo

add one more note: make sure the credential you use to make Infomap is the same one you use in EG, in case they have different permissions.

Thanks Tom,

I was under different server connection in EG, once that is fixed I am able to find my info maps
