Automating SAS® Viya® Admin tasks using CLI and Chatbot

About this paper

The SAS® Viya® platform comes with a new command line interface to interact with microservices. This paper is an attempt to embrace the openness of the Viya Platform by creating a chatbot, which helps SAS Administrator in performing his/her day to day tasks. While there are many ways to automate the Admin tasks, this paper explores the latest cloud services such as AWS Lex chatbot service, AWS Lambda which is a serverless computing platform to create an Interactive user chatbot with the front end being the Slack application chatbot. This chatbot can be easily customized to work with our voice commands. The lambda function uses the python runtime environment and explores the way we can interact with microservices using python.
