Administering VA – managing user permissions & loading data into memory

Hello VA community!

I came across a couple of blog posts on administering VA by SAS’ Wendy McHenry. Thought you may be interested:

Great posts by Wendy!

And in case anyone is interested in looking at conditional grants with Visual Analytics, have a look at my blog post describing how to do this Conditional Grants in SAS Visual Analytics

Conditional grants enable you to set up a report and use metadata security for data filtering to a group/user. An example of where this may be useful is where you have 10 departments/groups that need access to the same report with the only difference being the data filtered for each department. Rather than creating the same report 10 times with a data filter or a global filter to subset the data just for a department, an alternative approach would be to create 1 report that has 10 conditional grants for each department group, relying on the metadata security. This means there is only 1 report to maintain, rather than 10, and if a user moves from one group to another group, they automatically see only the data they are granted access to. It is a streamlined way to administer and maintain departmental reports using SAS metadata security.

Kind Regards,

Michelle
