SAS Environment Manager provides a comprehensive interface for ongoing
management, operation, and proactive monitoring of servers on both the middle tier and
the SAS server tier.
SAS Web Infrastructure Platform
The SAS Web Infrastructure Platform is a collection of services and applications that
provide common infrastructure and integration features to be used by SAS web
applications. These services and applications provide the following benefits:
consistency in installation, configuration, and administration tasks for web
applications
greater consistency in users' interactions with web applications
integration among web applications as a result of the ability to share common
resources
The following services and applications are included in the SAS Web Infrastructure
Platform:
SAS Authorization Service
is used by some SAS web applications that manage authorization through web
services.
SAS BI Web Services for Java
can be used to enable your custom applications to invoke and obtain metadata about
SAS Stored Processes. Web services enable distributed applications that are written
in different programming languages and that run on different operating systems to
communicate using standard web-based methods, including REST and SOAP.
SAS Content Server
stores digital content (such as documents, reports, and images) that is created and
used by SAS web applications. For more information, see “SAS Content Server ” on
page 39.
SAS Deployment Backup and Recovery Tool
enables deployment-wide backup and recovery services.
SAS Identity Services
provides SAS web applications with access to user identity information.
SAS Logon Manager
provides a common user authentication mechanism for SAS web applications. It
displays a dialog box for user ID and password entry, authenticates the user, and
launches the requested application. SAS Logon Manager supports a single sign-on
authentication model. When this model is enabled, it provides access to a variety of
computing resources (including servers and web pages) during the application
session without repeatedly prompting the user for credentials.
You can configure SAS Logon Manager to display custom messages and to specify
whether a logon dialog box is displayed when users log off. In addition, you can use
third-party products in conjunction with SAS Logon Manager to enable users to
access multiple web applications with a single sign-on action.
SAS Notification Template Editor
enables administrators to create and edit messages that are sent as notifications to
end users of SAS applications.
