In the initial configuration,
users can choose to store their credentials in their client-side connection
profiles. This prepopulates the logon dialog box in desktop applications.
For most desktop applications,
the SASSEC_LOCAL_PW_SAVE= option controls the availability of a check
box that enables users to choose whether to store credentials locally.
To prevent users from creating a local copy of their credentials,
set SASSEC_LOCAL_PW_SAVE="N" (or ="0" or ="F") in the metadata server's
omaconfig.xml file and restart the server.
A change to the SASSEC_LOCAL_PW_SAVE=
setting takes effect after the metadata server is restarted. Each
client uses the previous setting for its first connection, discovers
the revised metadata server setting, and conforms to that revised
setting for subsequent connections. If you change the setting to disallow
saved credentials, and credentials are already present in a user's
connection profile, those credentials must be manually removed.
For a few solutions rich
clients (for example, SAS Model Manager, SAS Enterprise Miner, and
SAS Forecast Studio), the ability to store credentials in client-side
connection profiles is instead controlled by the Policy.AllowClientPasswordStorage
property. This property is available on the Plug-ins
in SAS Management Console (under Application
ManagementConfiguration ManagerSAS Application InfrastructureSettingsPolicies
) as the property Allow
client password storage
