Define Additional SAS Enterprise Miner Users

Logging on to a client/server installation of SAS Enterprise Miner requires an operating system user ID and a SAS Enterprise Miner account. This section provides instructions on how a SAS Administrator can create a new SAS Enterprise Miner account in SAS Management Console.
Each user of the SAS Enterprise Miner Server will need a domain account that has the user with rights to Log on as batch job enabled. See your operating systems help for specific information about configuring this security setting. For systems with multiple users, a system group with all appropriate rights and permissions is recommended. On Windows systems, that would include the Log on as batch job security setting.
To simplify adding multiple accounts in SAS Management Console, it is possible to create a custom group. For more information about SAS Management Console and creating custom groups, see the SAS 9.3 Management Console Guide to Users and Permissions.
Each SAS Enterprise Miner system account must be registered in SAS Management Console. SAS Management Console provides a single interface for easier management of many SAS administrative tasks. To create a new SAS Enterprise Miner identity in SAS Management Console, use domain (or machine name) credentials and a user account that already exists on the machine. The user ID must exist on the operating system before the user ID can be registered via SAS Management Console.
Follow the instructions below to create an identity within SAS Management Console. After you create the new identity, users will be able to log in to SAS Enterprise Miner using these credentials.
  1. On the server, log in to SAS Management Console as Administrator (sasadm@saspw).
  2. On the Plugins tab of SAS Management Console, expand the Environment Management folder.
  3. Right-click the User Manager plug-in and select Newthen selectUser.
    New User Selection
  4. On the General tab of the New User Properties window, enter a value for Name. All of the other fields are optional.

  5. Select the Groups and Roles tab. In the Available Groups and Roles pane, select SAS System Services and Metadata Server: Unrestricted by holding the Control key and clicking both items. Move them to the Member of: pane with the arrow button that is between the two panes.
    New User Properties window
  6. Select the Accounts tab. On the right side, select the New button. In the New Login Properties window, enter the new user’s domain account. If the user ID is for a Windows account, it must be stored in a qualified format (such as windows-domain\user, machine-name\user, or A password is optional, but can be useful for a login that provides access to a third-party database server that uses proprietary authentication. Authentication Domain can be used to assign the login to a category within the SAS metadata. The Authentication Domain for SAS Enterprise Miner login accounts must be DefaultAuth.
    Note: On a Windows system, this account also requires the account permissions Log on as a batch job and Access this computer from the network. These permit the user to be logged on by means of a batch-queue and access to the SAS Metadata server. You can configure these security settings by opening the appropriate policy and adding each account. Generally, it is recommended that you create a user group, and give the group Log on as a batch job, and if required Access this computer from the network, permissions. Then, add each account to that group. For more information about required security policies see
    New Login Properties window
  7. Click OK in the New Login Properties window.
  8. Click OK in the New User Properties window.
  9. In Windows systems, if the operating system account is not already added to the Log on as a batch job setting, you will need to do one of two things. Either add that user to a group that has the Log on as a batch job privilege, or assign that privilege to the individual user.
The new account should now be able to log on to SAS Enterprise Miner.
