Setting enterprise guide options programmatically

I use the Autoexec feature in EG, so that when others use my projects they can be given extra guidance


I would like to set some of the options programmatically in this autoexec section - similar to how things happened in SAS Base. I don't want this changes to happen to every EG project user in the company - just the one that I am working on


I want, for example. to set the output to be HTML and switch off SAS Report. using ODS listing close; and ODS HTML; do not work. Any ideas?

Re: Setting enterprise guide options programmatically

Code executed on the workspace server does not influence EG's behaviour, with the exception of things that EG specifically looks for on its own.

Since EG send ODS code automatically before each execution of a single task (according to the settings in tools/options), "autoexec" code cannot influence that.
