SAS 9 operations require the use of a "runner" for executing the SAS code generated by the CLI. For security, this runner is always stored in your home directory in metadata.

To deploy the runner:

/* import the macros */
filename mc url "";
%inc mc;
/* create the runner */
filename ft15f001 temp;
%macro sasjs_runner();
%if %symexist(_webin_fileref) %then %do;
%inc &_webin_fileref;
%mend sasjs_runner;
  path=/User Folders/&sysuserid/My Folder/sasjs,

If your &sysuserid does not match your metadata user, then be sure to use your metadata user instead.
