The latest version can be downloaded from the Releases page:

It can also be installed in just two lines of code (on linux):

curl -L >

For windows, just download the zip file and launch. You can ignore / cancel the popup, the app does NOT require administrative privileges.


After installation, there is only one mandatory input:

  • SAS_PATH -> the full path to the SAS executable (eg /path/to/sas.exe|sh) in your environment.

However there are many additional settings you can make - these can go in a file called .env in the same folder as the unzipped SASjs Server executable (eg api-linux/api-win.exe). Simply create the file with sample contents such as below:

# This part enables multi-user SAS (optional)
# This part enables TLS (also optional)

Then launch the executable (eg ./api-win.exe or double click). If launching from terminal there should be a link in the log to open the app (eg http://localhost:5000). If double clicking, the browser should open automatically.

A full guide to deploying SASjs Server on a Ubuntu VPS is available here.

SSL Certificates

To run over https, SASjs server needs a copy of your certificates. The path to these certificates should be provided in the PRIVATE_KEY and CERT_CHAIN settings. If you are using self-signed certificates, then the CA_ROOT file should also be provided.

Example config:


Suggested instructions for obtaining certificates on a linux environment are provided below.

sudo snap install core; sudo snap refresh core
sudo snap install --classic certbot
sudo ln -s /snap/bin/certbot /usr/bin/certbot
# provide domain to prompt below WITHOUT https prefix, eg
sudo certbot certonly --standalone
# check for certificates
sudo ls /etc/letsencrypt/live/
