SAS Namespace Types


Subclass of SecondaryType


This metadata type associates a responsibility with an identity. Later, this ResponsibleParty object can be associated with one or more resources. A ResponsibleParty object must be created in the same SAS Metadata Repository as the Person or IdentityGroup object of the identity that it describes. New methods have been added to the SAS Open Metadata Interface that create and get ResponsibleParty objects in the appropriate repository, regardless of whether the requesting identity has WriteMetadata permission to that repository or not. For more information, see AddResponsibleParty and GetResponsibleParty in the SAS Open Metadata Interface: Reference and Usage.

ResponsibleParty objects

Security Inheritance and Enforcement Rules

The following list of associations is used to determine if this object should inherit access controls from another object (inheritance), or if the association is allowed for the object (enforcement). An association will not be created unless the calling user is authorized to update one or both objects involved in the association. For more information about inheritance and enforcement rules, see the SAS Intelligence Platform: Security Administration Guide.

The responsibility the associated identity has in relation to the associated objects. Begining in SAS 9.2, the list of SAS-supported roles will be maintained and localized within a utility jar. Supported roles include: OWNER USER ADMINISTRATOR CHANGEDBY

Association Details

     Cardinality:   0 to *
     Partner:   ResponsibleParties

The responsibility as defined by the Role attribute may apply to one or many objects. An application with a requirement to determine all of the objects for which a person has been assigned a particular responsibility would find the ResponsibleParty object where Role is the responsibility in question and query the Objects association to obtain the list of objects.  

Associated Types:

     Cardinality:   0 to *
     Partner:  Responsibilities

The list of persons that have been assigned the responsibility defined in this object. 

Associated Types:
