SAS Data Management Specific Configuration Settings


​Please note the following specific settings.


  • Select the ODBC Data Provider to connect. The provider is part of the Windows Operating System and should be already installed.
  • You need the SAS Data Management ODBC driver installed (64-bit or 32-bit version depending on architecture and installed Cloud Connector). This comes usually with the SAS implementation.
  • Follow the vendor instructions to setup and configure. See here for an example to setup an ODBC data source.
  • Use a System DSN (not User or File DSN) to setup your connection and to refer to in the connection string. Verify your setup directly in the ODBC Connection Manager, if supported.
  • You can use a connection string like this to connect:
    Please find more details about ODBC options at
  • You can make use of ODBC to query your data as supported by the data provider and source system. For any specification of query language supported see vendor documentation.
  • You can map your data fields to specific external source fields in the Layer2 Cloud Connector. Please take care about data types (simple type conversions are supported).
  • Please enter an appropriate primary key (column with unique values), depending on query (see data preview for this).

SAS Data Management Data Integration - Known Issues and Workarounds


  • You can generally use the connection for uni-directional synchronization (read access). We cannot support writing back to this entity, there seems to be some issues with the ODBC provider.
  • No programming required to setup a connection. No need to open your local network for access from outside. No need to modify the connected systems.
  • For more detailed setting options please take a look at the Layer2 Cloud Connector User's Guide.
