Platform. You can use SAS Management Console to connect to the SAS Metadata
Server and view and manage the metadata objects that are stored in the server's metadata
SAS Management Console uses an extensible plug-in architecture, enabling you to
customize the console to support a wide range of administrative capabilities. The plug-
ins that are provided with the application enable you to manage the following resources:
• server definitions
• library definitions
• user, group, and definitions
• resource access controls
• metadata repositories
• job schedules
The plug-ins also enable you to monitor server activity, configure and run metadata
server backups, view metadata interdependencies, and stop, pause, and resume servers.
Only certain users can view and use plug-ins. A user's access to plug-ins depends on the
which roles the user is assigned to and which capabilities are assigned to those roles.
In SAS Management Console, you can also view the folders that store metadata for
business intelligence content such as libraries, tables, jobs, cubes, information maps, and
reports. The folders include a personal folder for each individual user. For shared data,
you can create a customized folder structure and assign appropriate permissions at each
level in the folder hierarchy. Import and export wizards enable you to easily move or
promote content from one part of the folder tree to another, or from one metadata server
Note: Other client applications also display folders if they contain content that is
relevant to the application and that the user has permission to view.
For more information, see the SAS Management Console Help, which is available from
within the product. For detailed information about specific tasks that you can perform in
SAS Management Console, see the administration guides for the SAS Intelligence
Platform at http://support.sas.com/94administration.
