Before you start
Learn what to expect from this tutorial, and how to get the most out of it.
This tutorial provides you the steps to set up basic security and does not talk about the advanced security configurations available in IBM Cognos Business Intelligence application.
The following two types of reports are shipped with Policy Monitoring.
- Summary reports: These reports contain measured values for different Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
- Reports with master data: These reports contain master data along with measured values for different KPIs. The master data is fetched from the Policy Monitoring landing area tables.
Due to the sensitive nature of master data, limited access to Reports with master data should be granted. This tutorial will guide you in setting up report-specific access for Policy Monitoring reports such that a set of users will have access to Summary Reports, and another set of users will have access to Reports with master data.
This tutorial assumes that you have successfully done the following.
- Set up IBM Cognos Business Intelligence version 10.1.1, successfully configured Policy Monitoring reports.
- IBM Tivoli Directory Server v6.3 is installed, and an instance is successfully configured.
