User Service

The User Service enables applications to do the following:

  • create, locate, maintain, and aggregate information about users of SAS Foundation Services.

  • store and retrieve user context objects for sharing between applications. The user context contains the user's active repository connections, identities, and profile.

  • manage and access user profiles. A profile is a collection of name/value pairs that specify preferences and configuration or initialization data for a user for a particular application.

  • access group profiles. A group profile specifies preferences and configuration or initialization data for a group of users for a particular application.

For detailed usage documentation and example code, see in the Foundation Services class documentation.

For information about configuring a User Service, see Understanding Service Deployments and Modifying the Session and User Service Configurations in the SAS Integration Technologies: Administrator's Guide.
