Generating url for bursted output
« on: 06 Aug 2018 05:11:54 pm »
Hi,

We are migrating from Cognos 10 to Cognos Analytics v11.0.10. We have few report urls which are used to view the bursted output based on the burst key passed. As part of the upgrade, we would have to change the urls to open the bursted outputs from the new version.

Could you help us in understanding how to create this url, based on Cognos Analytics report url format.

A sample url that we use in the application is provided below:
http://company.org/ibmcognos/cgi-bin/cognosisapi.dll?b_action=cognosViewer&ui.action=view&ui.object=/content/package%5b@name='Abcd%20efgh%20and%20hijk'%5d/folder%5b@name='lmnop%20qrst%20uvw'%5d/report%5b@name='FAA00%20-%20Business%20Report'%5d/reportVersion%5blast()%5d/output%5b@burstKey='XXX'%5d%5b@format='HTML'%5d&run.outputFormat=HTML&cv.header=false&run.outputLocale=

Thanks SDF, for your comments. Appreciate your help.

We tried the options in the link provided, but could not wok out how to get the burst url for our report.

We need something similar to what is provided in the below url, except that it should be Cognos 11
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21339436

We tried to create our url based on the steps, but it is not working. :(

I have not done this as well in 11.
But it the doc, after you get the path reference via "Share", you can then add actions as described in the docs.

Can you share what you came up so far.?
