Cognos Mobile samples
« on: 18 Feb 2014 09:24:53 am »
Hi all,

If you ever need to download the MHT files available in the IBM Cognos Mobile app on iOS/Android so you can use them in a browser, they are available on an IBM FTP page. You can also get the XML report spec for each one and some screen shots:

ftp://public.dhe.ibm.com/software/data/sw-library/cognos/mobile/All/index.html

Enjoy!

MF.

thank your for your sharing.
mind to share how can i fix the broken issue in "control metrics" example?

as for now .. i only manage to get following active report compiled correctly .

Employee Recruitment                                                   
Customer Satisfaction                                                   
Inventory turnover report                                               
Financial report 

These are the report that referring the GS_DB ..

Error is stating
1) not updated package
2) incomplete visualization component

i have installed the 10.2.1 visualization but apparently it is not working...
some of it are missing still.

appreciate for your advice and guidance to fix the issue ...

I took a look at Control Metrics a while ago. It appears to use a modified version of the Great_Outdoors_Sales_en powercube, with extra measures and dimensions over the standard one that ships in the samples. I don't have this cube, so I was unable to get the original report to work without changing it.

I think it also uses some customized visualizations (and some background images too) which you'd need to re-create if you wanted to make the report work.

Generally I use it for understanding techniques rather than trying to get it to compile and run. I wrote a similar report as practice so that I could learn how the report fitted together - it's probably your best bet to attempt this too.

Cheers!

MF.

Got It!
Yes.. u r right.. perhaps i can utilize it in other way..
but i wish to know how the breadcrums is simulated in the "Control Metrics" sample..
i understand that we cant have drill up and drill down in active report, but simulate it will do..
in stead of having the "back" buttom..
i prefer to have something like the "breadcrumb"
coz i might take it as the solution for the view from
Year -> Quarter -> month -> day

Hi,

I'm not sure what you're referring to here. I can't see anything in the Control Metrics report that simulates breadcrumbs? Can you explain what you mean?

hi MF,

sorry my bad. I remember wrongly
The breadcrumb is actually under the sample 'Sales Dashboard'..
under the tab 'Market Analysis'
the table at the bottom of the dashboard..
I should study it how to implement the breadcrumb to simulate drilling scenario..
but not sure if this it a good option for time drilling

This is one of the things the report specs really help with - if you see a feature you like and you're not sure how it's done, you can load up the report spec and take a look at how it has been implemented. You don't need the package for this either :)

Have fun!!

I tried just now and the link works fine for me, just a little slow to load but that could just be my connection.

Looks like the link is incorrect on the page. It points to ftp://public.dhe.ibm.com/software/data/sw-library/cognos/mobile/All/Employee_Recruitment_Dashboard.mht but the mht link should actually be ftp://public.dhe.ibm.com/software/data/sw-library/cognos/mobile/All/Employee_Recruitment_Dashboard_en.mht

If you use the correct URL as above, you can download it.

Cheers!
