Adding Cognos Analytics on Cloud Hosted users to the Planning Analytics server

Add IBM® Cognos® Analytics on Cloud Hosted users to the IBM Planning Analytics with Watson server.

Cognos Analytics on Cloud Hosted has a single namespace that is pre-configured for single sign-on (SSO) with IBMid. This namespace is identified as Business Analytics for new customers, and is identified as Planning Analytics for existing customers. For the remainder of this document, the namespace is referred to as the 'SSO namespace,' and is applicable to both existing and new customers.

The SSO namespace includes these security groups:
All PA Users
All users invited to IBM Planning Analytics Workspace are members of the All PA Users group. This group was previously named All Planning Authenticated Users.
Note: The All PA Users group should not be deleted or modified.
PA Workspace Administrators
Planning Analytics Workspace users with the administrator role are assigned to the group. This group was previously named Subscription Admin.
The SSO namespace includes these security groups:
Consumers
A role called PANS users is created. The All PA Users group is added to the PANS users role, and then this role is added to the Consumers role. IBM recommends that the PANS users role not be removed from the Consumers group.
Directory Administrators
PANS Admin Users is a new role in the namespace. The PA Workspace Administrators group is a member of the PANS Admin Users role. The PANS Admins Users role is a member of the Directory Administrators role.

You can add users from the SSO namespace to the Planning Analytics server by using the AddClient TM1® TurboIntegrator process. (Administrators can add users from the PANS namespace in IBM TM1 Architect).

Cognos Analytics users can create a data source connection to the Planning Analytics server. Creating data source connections for each user might not be practical. However, if you choose to do so, the CreateNewCAMClients parameter must be set to true, see CreateNewCAMClients.

Note: IBM Cognos TM1 data source connections are not supported in IBM Cognos Analytics 11.1.x. See Replacing an existing Cognos TM1 data source connection with a Planning Analytics data source connection.
