Integrating Cognos report in HTML Page
« on: 09 Jan 2017 08:32:06 am »
Hello All,

I have a problem, I want to integrate some reports in an HTML pages using iframe or any other solution but without having the server ip in the src of the iframe to avoid that anyone can take the url and go to the server itself.

Anyone have suggestions ?

Thanks,

This would have to be done on the server hosting your web page. Your host would get the content from Cognos, then mash it up with the rest of your page before it gets sent back to the client browser. You will probably need the SDK for this.

Thanks bdbits  for your response,

I'm hosting the webpage in an internal server which can be accessed online, I don't have knowledge about the SDK, Will it enable me to get the cognos page content as HTML format to embedded it without having the ip ?

Thanks,
Yasser

You will need the Cognos SDK installed on the server.  What the web developer will actually be using is the Cognos Mashup Service (CMS).

Yes it will Yasser, but there is some coding involved. There are a bunch of ways to programmatically interact with Cognos. Give your developer the SDK documentation and that should get them started.
