Managing changes in the package

If changes were made to the package that was used to create a report, the report might need to be updated.

When you open a report, IBM® Cognos® Analytics - Reporting automatically checks to see if the package has changed. If it has, a message appears indicating that the report will be updated to the latest version of the package.

However, you might need to make additional changes to the report if the namespace name or query subject and data item names in the package have changed. Validate the report to identify the changes that are required, or to verify the changes that you implemented.

Note: When the package name is changed, the name is automatically updated in reports and data modules that are based on this package.
