HOW TO COPY SAS VA EXPLORATIONS AND REPORTS FROM DEV FOLDER TO PRODUCTION FOLDER VIA SCRIPT

Hi  SAS VA experts,

 

I  am working for a bank  and currrently created a number of reports and explorations in Developemnt/UAT  folder (LASR) and now

I need to copy them to production along with changes to the datasource names(same dataset with production names).

I am doing this manually now ( copying to production folder and linking to production data source) and ought to do 100's of reports and explorations.

 I would like to do this via  program /script and automate this copying process.Could you please help and let me know your vaulable thoughts on this.

 

thanks

JP

There are batch import/export tools. See

http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/bisag/68240/HTML/default/viewer.htm#p16u72wwciy3y0n1wq3i...

 

You should read all of the documentation first. In particular, you will have to look to see if the scripts support changing table names during the process, or if you will have to do that afterwards.

Hi madelyn,

That documentation is for promoting metadata items in sas di studio tool  as sas  package. But I cannot see such options ,'Export as package' in SAS VA. 

 

Thanks,

Jithesh

Export as Package can be done in SAS Management Console by switching to the Folder Tab then selecting the VA folder your reports are stored in then right click to get the Export as Package option.

The batch tools let you perform promotions from an operating system command line or batch script. The batch import tool and export tools are called ImportPackage and ExportPackage. The tools are located in the following path:

SAS-installation-directory/SASPlatformObjectFramework/9.4
 
You can execute these tools on any machine where the SAS Platform Object Framework is installed.
