Deny Permission on folders or reports
« on: 25 Jun 2019 07:08:54 pm »

I use IBM Cognos Analytics

I need to know how I can apply deny permission on a specific folder or report?

Available options in Cognos Analytics are (Read, run, Write, Full).

I have got a folder which had Deny permission and after it got migrated into Cognos Analytics it shows Deny as Custom like the attached file:

but I don't know how to manually apply it?

It's not very intuitive but the blue text under the permission is actually clickable ie Run, Custom or Write. This will pop up a new window where you can set the deny permission.
