Administering SAS OLAP Servers

Authorizing Access to SAS OLAP Servers

To operate SAS OLAP Servers, you need Administer permission. Unrestricted access is not required, and no specific role or capability is required.

For access to all aspects of SAS Management Console other than server operation, OLAP administrators need to be members of the role Management Console: Advanced. This role is required to display the SAS OLAP Server Monitor under the Monitoring node in the Plug-ins tab.

Users of SAS OLAP Cube Studio need readMetadata and writeMetadata permissions.

Users of cube viewers need Read and readMetadata permissions, but writeMetadata might not be necessary.

Default roles are available for association with users of SAS cube viewers. If you, as the OLAP administrator, are a member of the role SAS Metadata Server: User Administration, you can, as needed, add cube viewer users to the roles Add-In for Microsoft Office: OLAP and Enterprise Guide: OLAP.

To read and update the authorizations for SAS OLAP Servers, follow these steps:

  1. Open SAS Management Console.

  2. Expand the Server Manager.

  3. Right-click the application server, logical server, or server instance and select Properties.

  4. In the Properties window, select the Authorization tab.

For more information about security concepts and tasks, see the SAS Intelligence Platform: Security Administration Guide. Of particular interest is the material that deals with the protection of server definitions in metadata.
