To secure data from accidental update or deletion, you can do
on the SAS System side of the interface:
|SAS/ACCESS Interface to CA-DATACOM/DB: Reference
- Set up all access descriptors yourself.
- Set up all view descriptors
yourself and give them to users on
a selective basis.
- Give users read-only access or no access to the SAS data library
in which you store the access descriptors. Read-only access prevents users
from editing access descriptors and allows them to see only the fields selected
for each view descriptor. No access prevents users from doing LIST ALL commands
to see the contents of the access descriptor.
- Set up several access descriptors for different users.
- Use the DDBUPD
systems option to have a read-only system. (For
details, see System Options.)
