First let me say that the SAS Collaborative Server is a product that is no
longer being offered by SAS. It was an offering that repackaged Version 2 (I
think) of the "Intraspect Knowledge Server." Intraspect is now up to version
5 or so. If you are interested you can check it out at
http://www.intraspect.com. I believe that organization that licenses the SAS
Collaborative Server are now supported by Intraspect.
The Intraspect Knowledge Server was/is much more than a web server. It is a
product that offered "knowledge management" functions such as search (in
context), discussion groups, notification, subscription, etc. You can
define/register documents (e.g., word, pdf, html, etc.), urls, emails (it
had a built in SMTP mail server so important emails could be sent to the
server as well as the intended recipients).
The save2gm macro allows a SAS generated report (actually the URL for the
report) to be defined to the knowledge server (either static reports or
dynamic reports generated via the Application Dispatcher). The idea/intent
being that such BI reports could then be used in collaborative discussions.
With all that background, I think I can confidently state that the save2gm
macro would add little/no value in your environment as Apache does not offer
any of the services, beyond the embedded web server, of the Knowledge
Server. The macro assumes the report is being served by a web server.
Perhaps if you clarify what you want to do with Apache someone on the list
might be able to suggest how to do it.
