Usage Note 11991: Automating SAS® Activity-Based Management API tasks using EasyAPI
The following are 2 significant benefits of using the SAS Activity-Based Management EasyAPI:
The SAS Activity-Based Management EasyAPI hides the complexity of calling basic SAS Activity-Based Management API functions, such as export, import, calculate, and export report. You do not need any programming background to leverage the SAS Activity-Based Management API, nor do you need any programming software; a simple text file is sufficient as the programming interface to the EasyAPI.
EasyAPI handles the complexity of making sure each process (including, but not limited to, SAS Batches) executes sequentially. You no longer have to wait or do extra programming work to ensure that one process is complete before proceeding with the next one. If SMTP/Email service is enabled, EasyAPI can send you a notification e-mail once the process is done.
