Re: SASApp vs SASMeta

You should use SASApp for this, assuming that the goal is to make the data available to your SAS users for their work.

SASMeta is a "utility" Workspace server that is meant for use by certain metadata service operations, such as backup and restore work that requires a SAS session.  It's not meant to be an end user workspace server, and usually an admin will "hide" the SASMeta  server context from end users.
