SDA 4.1 Documentation for SDA MANAGER
SDA Manager - Set up and manage datasets in an SDA archive
The SDA Manager is an interactive webapp that consolidates all of
the management functions for an SDA archive into one web
interface. It is designed to be used by the main SDA data
archivist at an organization that runs an SDA server.
Using this web app the manager of an SDA archive can perform the
- Import SPSS .sav files, Stata .dta files, CSV files and TSV
files and automatically convert them into SDA datasets.
- Create and configure personal user workspaces. These user
workspaces enable analysts to create and store recoded and
computed variables in their own private storage areas. For
groups -- such as college classes -- the leader or instructor can
make their created variables accessible to the group to use in
their own analysis projects.
- Configure dataset-level access control -- specifying which
users can access which datasets.
- Generate reports on usage of the datasets in the archive.
- Troubleshoot problems.
There is extensive online help from within the SDA Manager
servlet for SDA archive managers. Those help files describe the
functionality and the options available.
The SDA Manager is run as a servlet and has its own installation
and configuration procedure. Details are found in the
Installation Guide for SDA 4.1
