SASŪ Management Console
SAS Management Console provides a single point of control for managing resources that are used throughout a business intelligence environment. Rather than using a separate administrative interface for each application in your computing environment, you can use SAS Management Console's single interface to perform the administrative tasks required to create and maintain an integrated environment across multiple platforms. SAS Management Console enables you to manage
- server definitions
- library definitions
- user, group, and role definitions
- resource access controls
- metadata repositories
- job schedules
The application provides a flexible administrative environment through the use of plug-ins. A plug-in is a Java .jar file that is installed in the SAS Management Console directory to provide a specific administrative function.
SAS Management Console works by creating and maintaining metadata definitions for each computing resource or control. These metadata definitions are stored in a repository on a SAS Metadata Server, where they are available for use by other applications.
The most current release is SAS Management Console 9.4.
