SAS visual analytics autoload data in subfolders

Hi,

We are running sas VA 7.3 on windows. I am a new administrator on it.

 

We got a lot of data from different areas which we now loads to a single folder (autoload) on VA.

 

Is it possible or what is best practice to put data in more folders which could load into memory (as subfolders) e.g. users need to drill down in the subfolders to access data? do I need another server context (is that possible in the windows version ??). I could be interesting if I could put security on the folders as well.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello @ANLYNG,

 

you can, as long as the folders maintain the folder structure (Append, Unload, Logs, Formats). You can nest autoload folders in the file system and in the metadata folders. Besides this, indeed, each autoload folder/subfolder will be a new Autoload process.

@ANLYNG,

 

The autoload functionality doesn't support loading data from subfolders. You have to configure multiple autoload processes to utilize subfolders.
