The following considerations apply to SAS Enterprise Guide 4.2 customers who have used SAS Enterprise Guide 4.1 or earlier releases.

  • Support for SAS Enterprise Guide repositories has been discontinued; all metadata must be stored in a SAS Metadata Repository.
  • Servers are no longer administered through SAS Enterprise Guide Explorer, and must now be administered using SAS Management Console. For information about administering servers, see the online Help for SAS Management Console.
  • Users and user groups are no longer administered through SAS Enterprise Guide Explorer, and must now be administered using SAS Management Console. For information about administering users, see the online Help for SAS Management Console.
  • The project format has changed from earlier releases. To change the format, you must either open each project in SAS Enterprise Guide 4.2 or use the Migration Wizard for SAS Enterprise Guide and the SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office. You must also use the migration wizard to import the metadata changes that occurred during the BI migration from SAS 9.1.3 to SAS 9.2. For more information, see "Using the Migration Wizard" in Administering SAS Enterprise Guide.
  • Tasks are no longer enabled or disabled for user groups, so any task assignments for SAS Enterprise Guide users are not maintained. Any restrictions on SAS Enterprise Guide tasks must be made through roles, and administered through SAS Management Console. For information about using roles in SAS Enterprise Guide, see "Administering Role-Based Settings" in Administering SAS Enterprise Guide and the online Help for SAS Management Console.
