Cognos security

The IBM® TM1® Server can authenticate users using IBM Cognos® security.

Cognos security is a component of the IBM Cognos framework that manages user access to data. Cognos security manages authorization and authentication through third-party security providers, such as LDAP or Active Directory.

When a user is authenticated through Cognos security, they are provided with a Cognos security passport. This passport is used by TM1 applications to determine the user's permissions (role and group membership) and identity.
