Hi,

In the free trial you don't have access to the Admin functions that allow backup and restore. There's no way to get hold of the spec of a dashboard directly, either (unlike a report, where you can copy the report XML).

In short, the answer is no. You'll need to re-create the dashboard from scratch in a different instance. The free trial is simply a sandpit for you to play with the product but there's no facility to allow you to deploy your content elsewhere.

Cheers!

MF.

Thanks for your revert.
 
So there is no way out to take backup of my existing dashboard.. by XML copy or running report in Workspace..

Yes there is no access to admin console, I can only see tab for Data Connections in my Administration tab...

Let me know in case there is any workaround.

Thanks...

Hi,

There is no way to take a backup of your dashboard from the free trial. You will need to re-create it manually in a non-trial instance of Cognos Analytics - once you have done that you can include it in a deployment archive.

Sorry.
