macro variable _EGuserID is gone in the SAS9.3 and EG4.3?

Hello there,

Before my script can populate the &_EGuserID automatically. But after upgrading the EG to the latest version, the SAS log reports that:

"Apparently symbolic reference _EGUSERID not resolved."

Then I did some research, it seems there is another variable which has the similar function, _MetaUser.

Here just want to confirm with the EG experts whether above fact is true, or just because I did something incorrect.

Thank you!

I know there is

_CLIENTUSERID and _CLIENTUSERNAME

We are using SAS EG 4.3 and SAS9.2 and I can't seem to so _EGUSERID, so may have been a 4.2 one.

You also need to get rid of the single speech marks if you want it exactly the same:

%let userID = %sysfunc(compress(&_CLIENTUSERNAME,"'"));

%put userID = &userID;
