Hi all,

I'm currently upgrading Cognos 10.2.1 to Cognos 10.2.2 and attempting to use Lifecycle manager to compare reports.  We have some reports we want to compare that contain multiple report pages.  Lifecycle appears to only compare the first page.  Does anyone know a way around this so that we can use the tool to fully compare the pages in the reports?

Also, when I run Lifecycle to do a comparison on CSV output, it will tell me if there are differences.  For all other formats, it asks me to look at the report output manually and compare.  Is this by design?

Very new to the product and just trying to get a grasp of it.  Thanks for any tips/advice you can provide!

Hi again all,

Quick update.  I'm not sure if it was user error on my part or corrected when we upgraded the instance of Cognos I'm using Lifecycle Manager with to 10.2.2, but the product Lifecycle Manager is now showing me whether there are differences now for all formats and not just CSV.  Also, I see that when it is running for other formats (i.e. PDF) all pages of a multi-page report are being generated and compared.  So this issue has turned out to be a non issue.

Regards!
