Metacoda Plug-in Features
Identity Permissions Explorer
The Identity Permissions Explorer provides you with comprehensive, whole-of-server views of effective permissions for a specific user or group across multiple objects.
Find a single identity (user or group) and review its effective permissions across multiple objects such as folders, libraries, stored processes, reports, etc.
Object Permissions Explorer
The Object Permissions Explorer provides you with comprehensive, whole-of-server views of effective permissions, for multiple identities, on a specific object within your SAS metadata security implementation.
Browse or search for a single object such as a folder, library, stored process, report, or other object, and review the effective permissions on that object across multiple identities (users or groups).
Review the use of Access Control Templates (ACTs) – how they have been defined, where they have been applied, and how they have been protected.
Review the use of Access Control Entries (ACEs) – the objects they have been applied to and the permissions they impart.
Review users that have been defined in SAS metadata including their group memberships, role memberships, the capabilities they have access to, accessible logins, and more.
Review user groups that have been defined in SAS metadata including their members, group memberships, role memberships, the capabilities they provide to their members, and more.
Review roles that have been defined in SAS metadata including their members, roles that they contribute capabilities to, roles they receive capability contributions from, and more.
Review capabilities in SAS metadata – the roles that provide those capabilities and the members they provide those capabilities to, including all of the multiple membership and contribution paths.
Protected Object Reviewer
Review SAS metadata objects that have been explicitly protected through the use of ACTs or ACEs.
Review any logins stored in metadata that are accessible to the current user.
Easily discover the source of effective permissions on an object for a user or group.
Protect the integrity of your current SAS metadata security implementation using tests and alerts (available in our Enterprise level license package).
Import, check and synchronize identity-related SAS metadata with enterprise directories without the need to edit SAS code.
Internal Login Reviewer
Review any internal logins stored in metadata that are accessible to the current user.
Auth Domain Reviewer
Review authentication domain information such as if it is in use, logins, connections and libraries.
