Reporting / Re: Moving Workspace Advanced Script or Program to 11 G
« Last post by gosoccer on Today at 10:38:48 am »
Thank you, Works well. So, the ability to Drag and Drop Columns from the Right Panel in Workspace Advanced is not there any more I take it and I need to train the power users to do something else to have the Meta Data available on one side and the Page countent on the other side? Right?

I appreciate your time.

Reporting / Re: Moving Workspace Advanced Script or Program to 11 G

I think what you are trying to do is copy a report specification from a Cognos 10 environment to a Cognos Analytics 11 environment.  Yes, you can do this.  I don't remember if there is a "Copy Report to Clipboard" function in Workspace Advanced.  If not, just use the one in Report Studio.  Once in Cognos Analytics Reporting, use "Open Report from Clipboard".

There is no Cognos 11G.  I think 11G is a version number for Oracle products.

Reporting / Re: Moving Workspace Advanced Script or Program to 11 G

Hello,

Quick question,

I need to move our Workspace Advanced files to the new Analytics environment. Is there anyway to use the Tools-Copy Report to Clipboard option to move a file from 10G to 11G so in 11G I would use Open Report from Clipboard.
I understand, the Workspace Advanced doesn't exist in Analytics and it is part of the Report Studio?

Pls help..

Thanks, :) :)

There is neither report studio nor workspace advanced in v11 -- it is just authoring.

There is an option to copy the report to the clipboard from within either report studio or workspace advanced in version 10.

To open the report from the clipboard in version 11, click on the pages button in the left pane and then right-click on the report icon to select the option to open from clipboard.

If you have a lot of reports to migrate, an administrator can export a deployment archive from 10 and then import it into 11.

RAVE Visualizations / Re: Open Properties for Report Studio
« Last post by shelby435 on Today at 08:36:12 am »
Thank you MFGF. I knew I was going to have to edit the JSON with the customizer and all that, and it was exactly that I didn't know what to write. I didn't know what string resources or parameters to call.

I did receive code snippets from someone and going to try to implement that.

Thank you for replying.

SDK / Re: SDK Classpath -- Required JAR files for SDK?
« Last post by MFGF on Today at 04:06:15 am »
wsdl4j.jar is not provided in the Cognos installation folder. Does anyone know why or where to find?

Hi,

This is a pretty old post, and lists the JAR files for an obsolete version of Cognos BI. I just checked in my 10.2.2 install, and the sdk\lib folder has wsdl4j-1.5.1.jar in it. I'm guessing this is the more modern replacement?

RAVE Visualizations / Re: Open Properties for Report Studio
« Last post by MFGF on Today at 04:02:03 am »
Does anyone know how to properly edit the JSON to open up more of the properties for Report Studio?

I have to change the palette for the same viz (az.viz) several times and Im trying to avoid having to import the same visualization 5 times all with different palettes.

I'd like to open the palette property but I just have no idea how. I know it used to available but I don't see it.

Thanks!

Hi,

It's possible to modify visualizations to add a palette property (and defined palettes) if you know what you are doing. You're going to need the Visualization Customizer utility from the DeveloperWorks website, and some snippets of code for the Chart Type Definition, Parameters and String Resources sections of the vizJSON code. You will also need someone with Administrator privileges to import the revised visualizations and make them available for you to use in Cognos. Let me know if you need further details / code snippets.

Cheers!

MF.

Hi,
you need following .jar files to begin interacting via Cognos SDK.

axis.jar;
axisCognosClient.jar;
commons-discovery.jar;
commons-logging.jar;
jaxrpc.jar;
saaj.jar;
wsdl4j.jar;
xercesImpl.jar;
xml-apis.jar;
dom4j.jar;
xalan.jar

Best of Luck
Dani

wsdl4j.jar is not provided in the Cognos installation folder. Does anyone know why or where to find?

G'day all.

Cognos Analytics 11.0.4 running on Linux (Red Hat).

I've just deployed some reports from dev to test and when I run a particular report I get this message (sometimes):

Has anyone else seen this?
Do any of you understand this message and can explain it to me please?

I'm guessing from the words contained therein that it may have to do with a permissions issues in the web server.
Error occurs on both I.E. and Chrome.

Cheers,

Blue

Hi Bob,

I haven't seen the error previously, but it could be an easy job to see if it's web-server related if you connect using the servlet gateway URL instead (http://<server>:9300/bi) and see if you get similar errors?

Just a thought,

MF.
