Upgrading to Cognos Analytics / Re: Upgrade 11.0.12 to 11.1.2
« Last post by MichaelB on Today at 11:30:49 am »
So running from 11.0.12 to 11.1.1 and then 11.1.2 worked? We just had an issue this past weekend upgrading our Prod environment from 11.0.3 to 11.1.2 and it failed and we had to roll back. But when we were testing, we upgraded to 11.1.1 and then to 11.1.2 and had no issues. Now that I see your post, I wonder if this is a cause of our issues.

Reporting / Re: Customizing columns/bars in column/bar charts

It's an option in the charts, but I don't believe it can be done in the visualizations (new or legacy).

Administration and Security / Cognos 11 (analytics) start is SLOW
« Last post by stonkers on Today at 11:14:41 am »
Is there anything at all we can do to speed this up?  With Cognos 10 BI Server it would take a long time to stop or start but nothing like this (4 minutes seemed a slow one back then).  I'm happy with the stop, it's now around 30 seconds.  But start is taking a bit over 10 minutes.  We're on RHEL 7.6.

/opt/ibm/cognos/analytics/bin64/cogconfig.sh -stop   (34 seconds last test)
/opt/ibm/cognos/analytics/bin64/cogconfig.sh -s     (10 minutes 4 seconds last test)

Thanks in advance for any guidance you can give me!

Administration and Security / Re: standard users get invalid response
« Last post by MFGF on Today at 10:54:43 am »
Firstly sorry for the late response, I was abroad for a few days.

This is about a fresh install. The external consultant that configured the install seems to have forgotten or removed something that causes that people added are denied access. We put me and my colleague in the Administrator role so that we can log in and administer the environment. What I look for is in which Cognos group or role we have to put people or an AD group so that they can access the Cognos environment. Somehow it seems that something there is missing, at least compared to my Cognos 10 and Cognos 8 experience. The various Cognos groups and roles should have their default behaviour and permissions.

Did you get chance to look at what permissions are defined for the Analytics Users role at the root of Team Content and what capabilities are defined for this role?

We are experiencing the same issue.  Opened a support ticket with IBM yesterday.

Yes flat relational models with regular dims and measures, no DMR's and nothing fancy at all. In fact, a rather boring standard star schema..

I do have the samples installed and if i pull them into the data module and create a relationship to the flat file i see the dims and measure dimensions as expected. This also happens with other packages that I have but not this one and thats where i'm getting a little confused. The permissions are the same as my other packages and has been published from the same model.

Hmmmm. Puzzling. Is there anything different about the way the package is modelled? Have you implemented object security, for example? What objects are being surfaced in the package - are they real query subjects or are they shortcuts? Just thinking out loud here rather than asking because I know something. :)

Reporting / User Comments in reports
« Last post by kslanicky on Today at 08:45:26 am »
Aside from stored procedures, is there any way to capture user comments on report outputs in C11?

Seems the old C10 functionality is no longer available.

Stored proc solution
