Hi Guys,

I am having issue with creating Custom Polygons from Shape files. I followed all steps provided at:

https://blogs.sas.com/content/sgf/2018/01/26/how-to-create-custom-regional-maps-in-sas-visual-analyt...

and tried to create "New Geography Item" after uploaded SAS-Shapefile to CAS and having issue with 

"Custom Polygon Provider" selection..I don't see any variable(s) listed there or any option to create a new one..

(Please check screen-shot)

Any Suggestion? Solution to the problem?

Do I need any Admin/From Admin Privilege to Create New "Custom Polygon Provider" ? I don't see that icon (Edit) besides Drop-down.

I need this help ASAP, please.

Thank you in Advance,

Hitesh

Yes, that is correct. Only SAS Administrators or users with elevated permissions can create/update/delete providers. The reason for this requirement is driven by the fact that providers are shared across reports and a change here may affect all reports. There are some information about required permissions at https://go.documentation.sas.com/?docsetId=calids&docsetTarget=p00fd1yedaa739n1if2lje4ogm1z.htm&docs... 

 

Hope this helps. Falko
