http://www-03.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf/lilookup/217650585D0D34CF85257E4C001F1B6F?OpenDocument

1 - Cube Designer is a Supported Program, but not Dynamic cubes? Odd...

2 - Event Studio is not part of the Supported Programs list. But it's listed under the prohibited section for certain user types. Why not for all user types in that case?

3 - Similarly with Framework Manager. It's in the Supported list, but seems like it can only be used by Express Administrators? Is that right?

Sorry, just trying to understand how this license doc is put together.

Thanks
J

Here's my understanding:

1. Dynamic Cubes are not permitted in Cognos Express. It's strange that Cube Designer is listed as a supporting program. This effectively means you can install it. However, you're not allowed to use it in any of the license roles, so there's no point installing it.
2. Event Studio isn't a supporting program that can be installed separately - it's part of the core BI install. The only license roles not permitted to use it are IBM Cognos Express Performance Management User and IBM Cognos Express Consumer User.
3. Framework Manager is a supporting program - ie it can be installed for use with the core Express BI / TM1 installs, but isn't installed by default with either of these. The only license role permitted to use it is IBM Cognos Express Administrator.

Cheers!

Hi,

- IBM Cognos Express Performance Management User  --> excludes Analysis and Query Studio
- IBM Cognos Express Business Intelligence User  -->  excludes Analysis and Query Studio
- IBM Cognos Express User  -->  does not exclude Analysis or Query Studio

Does IBM Cognos Express User include Analysis Studio?

Btw: How do you administer all these capabilities in Cognos Administration? All manually, not using the predefined capabilities/roles?

Cheers, Markus

That does seem to be the case, yes :) The license docs don't prohibit it. I'd check with your IBM Account Manager just to be sure, though.

You can either adapt the predefined roles, or create your own - whichever you find easiest :)
