Mimic Another User

Another SAS developer wrote some logic to mimic another user within a stored process that runs in a Web URL Portlet via Information Delivery Portal.  After selecting the user to mimic the user is sent to a page that contains this as a link.  Could someone explain what this link does?  I can’t find PortalPage anywhere in the file structure.

PUT "<a href='https://servername.vcu.edu/SASPortal/navigate.do?PortalPage=PortalPage%2Bomi%3A%2F%2FFoundation%2Fre...'>PI Dashboard</a>";

Re: Mimic Another User

I identified the end part of the URI as a metadata id. How can I query which stored process relates to this Id in SAS 9.2? How can I look up the metadata id for a known stored process name?

Re: Mimic Another User

I found doucmentaiton that implied that SAS 9.3+ has a feature in SAS Management Console called Matadata Manager that seems to do this.  This plugin does not show up in my 9.2 environment.  Posibly I can use proc metadata, with a learning curve.
