What component and SAS Visual Analytics version and component (Administrator, Data Builder, Designer, Explorer, Viewer and SAS Mobile BI) are you referring to?
If using the web based components (Administrator, Data Builder, Designer, Explorer, Viewer) you need to be able to connect to the SAS LASR Analytics server. Internet connection is dependent on your environment, whether you are accessible the OpenStreet Map mapping service or are hosting your own mapping provider and/or accessing SAS VA in the cloud.
If your question is regarding the SAS Mobile BI app, it depends on whether the reports use local or remote data. Below is text taken from the SAS Mobile BI 7.1 app...
Does this answer your questions?
Remote data exists on your device only while the report is open and the device is connected to a Wi-Fi or cellular network.
After you close the report, the data is removed from the device. The thumbnail on the report in the portfolio no longer appears. If you are not connected to a network and you try to open the report, it does not open.
If a report uses local data, this icon does not appear on the thumbnail.
Your SAS administrator sets this option for the user ID that you use to access the server. When this option is set, all reports on that server use remote data.
If you have any questions about this option, contact the SAS administrator for the affected server.
