TM1 / Security to User Group - not individual?
« Last post by donap on 23 Feb 2018 04:41:47 pm »
Hello. When I right-click on the TM1 Server instance  -select Security > Clients/Groups ....It lets me add a specific user as an Admin, or Data Admin. It also shows me the User Groups across the top.

we manage the members of each  Group  externally.

How to I grant Admin (Data Admin) access to a Group ?
I want everyone in the group (whether it is 1 person, or 5 people, or changing people)  to have the defined access, without having to get a  communication every time someone joins or leaves that team.

How do you do this ?

Reporting / Re: Counting, by Definition of Entry, in a List Column

SOLUTION ... Utilizes a Pie Chart where Footer for 'Cause of Incident' had for the Column 'Cause of Incident' ...
Detail Aggregation = Default
Summary Aggregation = Default
 … and …
'Incident Internal ID' …
Detail Aggregation = Default
Summary Aggregation = Default

Had a Query Calculation of 'TestCount' for the Footer value in the Column 'Incident Internal ID'.
 'TestCount' = Count ([Incident Internal ID] For [Incident Location], [Cause Of Incident])

Chose not to display Legend as Two Different Pies showed ALL Legend answers for the two
Locations even if a Location did NOT have that 'Cause of Incident'

Yet another unintuitive Cognos 'feature' that has wasted hours of my time.

I have a 2 column, 3 row table on my prompt page. Each cell has a 1 column, 2 row table that includes a Value Prompt and text item above for user instruction.

The column width default to take up the whole screen. I want to minimize this so it looks more professional.

Here's what I'm doing that does not work:
1.) Select each cell in the 2x3 table columns
2.) Size & Overflow > width = 300px

Result: NO CHANGE.

WHY? HOW DO THESE SIMPLE TASKS BECOME FRUSTRATINGLY TIME CONSUMING ENDEAVORS IN COGNOS

What is the size and overflow setting for the 2x3 table? Tables default to 100% width.

« Last post by donap on 23 Feb 2018 09:27:40 am »
When a user opens  cafe report, and tries to EDIT SET in a crosstab -- The right hand side that shows the elements that are currently selected for the report.  This window also displays all properties of the elements.... is there a way to disable the Properties displaying here  ?
Thanks

TM1 / Re: Passing MUN from TM1 to DB table
« Last post by MFGF on 23 Feb 2018 05:44:11 am »
Hi, thanks for any help!

I am trying to set up Event Studio to run a report with parameters passed from TM1.  I have added a button in TM1 that writes a record to a table with the options users select.  I want to pass the MUN and not the name into the table and then use it to populate the params in my Report Studio report.  I can see in my package that I have the MUN added when I look in RS so it is there somewhere, just how do I pass it from TM1 to the DB table?

Thanks

Hi,

Firstly, I LOVE your forum name! A blast from the past. :)

As you know, my old friend, I'm not an expert in the dark arts of TM1, but I know a Kipper who is - might be worth reaching out to him directly?

Hope you're keeping well and enjoying all the globe-trotting!

Cheers!

MF.

What are you using as your content store? Are you seeing any relevant entries in cogserver.log that identify what is going on?
