Opening projects

You must open a project before you can import metadata or make changes to existing metadata.

If the project was created using a model schema that is older than the currently supported version, you may be prompted to upgrade the model.

If your model is checked into a repository, you cannot upgrade it. Manually check the model out of the source control system and then open it in the new version of IBM® Cognos® Framework Manager.

If you upgrade a segmented model, you must open and upgrade each segment individually. After upgrading each segment, you can then upgrade the top level, or master, project.


  1. From the Welcome page, click Open a project.

    Tip: If you are in Framework Manager, click File, Open.

  2. Browse to locate the project folder and click the .cpf file.
  3. Click OK.
