Pinned topic Moving to Cognos Reporting from Web Reporting in TUAM

‏2012-12-16T02:52:39Z |
We have external customers that log on to the current Web Reporting in TUAM and can only view the reports based on the User Group to Account Code authorization. Is such a feature supported in Cognos Reporting? I read through the documentation and it did not appear that you could do what you can do currently in Web Reporting. It seems like if a user can run a report in Cognos Reporting they can see all the data that the query will provide. Is there a recommended approach to this?

    Hi,

    The account code security that was in Web Reporting is also available in the TCR Cognos Reports and works in the same way.

    When defining a user group in TUAM / SCCM, the clients listed in the Client Allowed section will restrict those seen when a user in that user group runs a report in TCR, just as it does in Web Reporting.

    I'll see if we can make this clearer in the documentation to avoid further confusion.

      Thanks so much for the prompt reply. I had a couple of additional questions relating to functionality of Cognos Reporting Vs. Windows Web Reporting.

      1) Is the batch publishing of reports supported in Cogonos similar to what can be done in WWR?
      2) Is the Favorites Feature where you can mark certain reports to show up on Favorites supported?

      Thanks in advance

    Hi Michael, Srini

    Please refer to  http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v3r1/topic/com.ibm.sccm.doc_2.1/migration/c_migrating_from_web_reporting_to_tivoli_common_reporting.html

    for migration from WWR to Cognos Reporting.

     

    For scheduling reports refer to

    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/c8bi/v8r4m0/topic/com.ibm.swg.im.cognos.ug_cc.8.4.1.doc/ug_cc_i_view_manage_schedules.html

     

    With regard to Favorites: there are features within Cognos that can deliver the same functionality. For example you can create a new Folder  - called Favorites in My Folders. Create a new report view / shortcut of your favorite reports  and store them in your new favorites folder.

    Then create  a new page in My folders and when modifying the layout and contents of the new page - include Cognos navigator - and drill down to hte favorites folder.

    You can add the new page to the portal tabs so you can see the favorites in your main window. If you want to set that tab as home you can so it is the one displayed when you open Common Reporting.

    Refer to http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/c8bi/v8r4m0/topic/com.ibm.swg.im.cognos.ug_cc.8.4.0.doc/ug_cc_id2894Managing_Pages.html#Managing_Pages for more info on this - or f if you need help let me know

     

    Best Regards

    Louise
