Overview
The SAS 9.3 Intelligence Platform Installation and Configuration Guide (located at
http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/biig/62611/HTML/default/
viewer.htm#titlepage.htm)
documents all administrative tasks required for creating and
managing software depots, and installing and configuring the SAS 9.3 Intelligence
Platform. The SAS 9.3 Intelligence Platform is the foundation for SAS Clinical Data
Integration.
Install and configure the SAS 9.3 Intelligence Platform before using this document to
perform post-configuration administrative tasks that are specific to SAS Clinical Data
Integration. All product documentation can be found at

First-Priority Setup Tasks
The following tasks are necessary to protect the integrity of your system. Complete
these steps as soon as possible after installation and before you complete any other
tasks that are outlined in this section.
1 Install necessary hot fixes.
SAS Clinical Data Integration and the products it uses (such as SAS Data
Integration Studio or SAS Clinical Standards Toolkit) might require hot fixes for the
correct operation of some system features or to bring the server state to a supported
level. Go to the SAS Clinical Data Integration Product documentation site for a
complete list of required hot fixes.
2 Secure the SAS configuration on each server machine.
See the SAS 9.3 Intelligence Platform Installation and Configuration Guide.
3 Establish a formal, regularly scheduled backup process.
See the SAS 9.3 Intelligence Platform Installation and Configuration Guide.
4 Chapter 2 / Administration Tasks
Standard Setup Tasks
The following administration tasks are essential. They enable users to begin using SAS
Clinical Data Integration to access, standardize, and analyze data.
1 Add Clinical Administrators and manage access.
Users who manage data standards, controlled terminology, studies, and
submissions require access to the Clinical Administrators group. The SAS Clinical
Data Integration configuration process adds the Clinical Administrators Group to the
metadata server. For more information, see the SAS Clinical Data Integration: User’s
Guide.
2 Add users and manage access.
See the SAS 9.3 Intelligence Platform Installation and Configuration Guide.
3 Establish connectivity to your data sources.
See the SAS 9.3 Intelligence Platform Installation and Configuration Guide.
4 Set up your metadata folder structure.
See the SAS 9.3 Intelligence Platform Installation and Configuration Guide.
5 Import a data standard.
At least one active data standard is required to use the features of SAS Clinical Data
Integration. For more information about importing data standards, see to the SAS
Clinical Data Integration: User’s Guide.
6 Import and manage controlled terminology.
For more information about importing and managing controlled terminology, see the
SAS Clinical Data Integration: User’s Guide.
Optional Setup Tasks

Optional Setup Tasks
You might need to modify your initial configuration to meet specific requirements in your
environment.
1 Review the optional tasks addressed in the SAS 9.3 Intelligence Platform Installation
and Configuration Guide.
2 Set up your default study and submission folders and libraries.
A default metadata folder tree and libraries can be defined for studies and
submissions. These folders and libraries are created when a new study or
submission is added. For more information about defining default content, see the
SAS Clinical Data Integration: User’s Guide.

Introduction to Best Practices
In addition to the best practices defined in the SAS 9.3 Intelligence Platform Installation
and Configuration Guide, you should consider the following information related to the
clinical metadata managed by SAS Clinical Data Integration.
Re-Import a Data Standard Rather Than
Use Copy or Import Operations
In cases where a data standards administrator wants to create a custom version of an
existing data standard, it is much easier to import it again as a new data standard. This
ensures that associated libraries and metadata properties are adjusted accordingly.
8 Chapter 3 / Best Practices for Ensuring the Integrity of Your System
If you copy or import a data standard, be sure to run a repair operation on the new copy
before using the data standard. For more information about repairing domains, see the
SAS Clinical Data Integration: User’s Guide.
Copy a Domain By Using the Wizard
Rather Than Use Copy and Paste
To properly copy a domain that has already been defined elsewhere in metadata, use
the provided wizard. The wizard enforces data standard version rules and adjusts
metadata links for the new copy.
If you copy and paste a domain instead of using the wizard, be sure to run a repair
operation on the new copy before using it. For more information about repairing
domains, see the SAS Clinical Data Integration: User’s Guide.
