How Do You Review Activity In SAS® Management Console?

On-Demand • Cost: Complimentary

About the webinar

Imagine staying in SAS Management Console and being able to see activity information gleaned from recent changes in SAS®9 log files. For example, see audit activity for security access controls, user logins, failed logins and more.

Examining user and object activity can be a challenging task for SAS administrators with finding information in the right log file. Metacoda, in their latest release – Metacoda Plug-ins 6.2 – has a new activity reviewer plug-in that is focused on reviewing log data for specific metadata objects and specific metadata identities.

This will be of interest for those with auditing and troubleshooting requirements.

You will learn:

  • How to perform log data queries quickly without leaving SAS Management Console.
  • How to see very recent log entries.
  • How it integrates with other Metacoda Plug-ins to examine and view:
    • User activity for a selected user.
    • Activity for a selected object.
  • The underlying technology, architecture and prerequisites.
