Iam administrator of cognos8 server.we have set of developers who will be creating packages and reports.We have many users who will be accessing the reports.

Now i want to give access to the users but only to there my folders not to public folders.
Let me know how hcan i resolve this issue.

Thx & Reg.


1. Goto Portal Administration Option under the tools menu

2. Click on Cognos Content portlet in the portlets listing

3. Click on Cognos Navigator

4. Click on properties for Public Folders and you should be able to control the permissions from here.


One note:
if you don't give permissions to the users for public folders, how r they gonna develop reports?
So denying access will not work.

You have to edit system.xml to hide but still give execute access to public folders and packages.
Even in that case, report studio users will be able to see the packages they are going against.
