Web Report Studio: Adding a Confidentiality Disclaimer

Submitted by on 2012-04-26 – 8:09 AM

Table Disclaimer

Adding disclaimers to SAS Web Report Studio tables and graphs is sometimes necessary for confidentiality purposes.  You can do this easily by using the Configuration Manager available in SAS Management Console 9.2 and up.  This is shown to the right.

 

Adding a Table Disclaimer Through SAS Management Console

SAS Support provides official documentation for adding disclaimers in SAS 9.3 as well as SAS 9.2.  To add the disclaimer, simply find the “Web Report Studio 4.3” application under the Configuration Manager through SAS Management Console.

Right click and go to the “Advanced” tab and add the property as shown below.

Downsides

The major downside is the disclaimer gets inserted on every single table and chart produced going forward.  Web reports can get very cluttered with the same message.  As an alternative I would recommend building a Web Report Studio template with the security message as a footer.  Report writers can be educated to always use this template to enforce security policies.

I noticed a reference to an XHTML fragment in the LocalProperties.xml file for Web Report Studio

Not sure how this works, but if anybody has any ideas please share!
