Hello,

 

My  firm's Admin disabled email notification whle loadling datasets from metadata server to LASR server  as per company security policies.He runs a macro daily and refreshes the data to LASR library.Could you someone please advise me a solution to create an alert whenever new data loads into LASR.( I am not looking to create alert using data fields in datasets).

 

Can I create a stored process in SAS VA .Please let me know how to do this.

Re: Regarding SAS VA Data upload alert

Hold on, I just remembered some alternatives, although I am not sure if it will help you. But you can try, and on either case they will help with this question or not, they provide additional information of your system!

 

1. LASR server logging:

- and https://www.wku.edu/instres/documents/vincent_analyzing_lasr_server_logs_sasva.pdf

 

2. To enable the the SAS VA Audit Reports for Administrators:

Hello @jithuzoom,

 

probably there are better ways, although I believe that simpler, the better. The traditional proc contents and to compare the output on last modified date  (and size, if you will) should work just fine http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/proc/69850/HTML/default/viewer.htm#p002g1zty23smvn1cs2ga...

 

And of course you can write an STP, as on any other SAS platform. How would you like to use the Stored Process?

 

PS. Just to be sure, you will need to do the proc contents of the libraries where you have the LASR data.

Hello @jithuzoom,

 

good Smiley Happy

 

Given the scenario, if I understood correctly, that your SAS or System Administrator disabled the alert notifications that the SAS software provide, you have 2 honest options and one not that honest:

 

- Completely accept the decission, because it is a company policy.

 

- Or to try to workaround it.... and then either try to sell the alternative to your SAS/System admin, to check if they accept it

 

- Or either workaround it and to say nothing, then wait until you are discovered, if you are discovered, and then explain.

 

In the meantime, you can wait for a better proposal to chime in. Still, I would expect that the solution will be code based, since the in-built functionality has been closed by policy.
