On-Demand • Cost: Complimentary

About the webinar

Join this webinar to learn how to use the SAS Viya command-line interfaces (CLI) for common SAS Viya administration tasks.

The CLIs support automation and allow administrators to perform numerous administrative tasks in batch as an alternative to using the SAS Environment Manager interface.

In a cloud architecture, the CLI can be used when new environments are created to automate initial administrative tasks like adding users, creating folders and content, and loading data.

You will learn:

  • How to install the Viya CLI.
  • The benefits of using the Viya CLI.
  • How Viya CLI helps to automate post-deployment tasks that configure and load data and content to a new system. SAS Viya on Kubernetes and in the cloud makes it easy to spin up new, fresh environments.
