Cognos TM1 Interoperability for Cognos BI installation program removed

As of IBM Cognos TM1 version 10.2.2, the TM1 Interoperability for Business Intelligence (BI) installation program is no longer available. The files that it included are now included by default in the main Cognos TM1 installation program.

This change applies to all of the supported operating systems for Cognos TM1 version 10.2.2.

The files that were previously installed by the TM1 Interoperability for BI installation program are now included in the file that is located in the following directory:

<TM1 installation location>\bi_interop

For example, on Windows:

C:\Program Files\IBM\cognos\tm1_64\bi_interop

To use the new file:

  1. Extract and merge the content of the file into the root directory of your existing Cognos BI installation:

    For example: C:\Program Files\IBM\cognos\c10_64\

    Note: The file contains a directory structure that merges files into the \templates and \webcontent subdirectories.
  2. Edit the parameters in the extracted files for the component that you want to integrate with Cognos TM1 and Cognos BI.
    Cognos TM1 Applications

    The extracted files enable Cognos TM1 Applications to integrate with Cognos BI security and the Cognos Connection portal.

    For more information, see Using Cognos TM1 Applications with Cognos security and Cognos TM1 Applications integration with Cognos BI and the Cognos Connection portal.

    Cognos Analysis for Microsoft Excel

    Cognos Analysis for Microsoft Excel uses the extracted files to access Cognos TM1 servers that are using Cognos BI authentication with single sign-on (SSO).
