Error description

  • When creating a data source connection through the legacy UI
    (Cognos Administration -> Configuration tab -> Data Source
    Connections), you can choose to enable the data source for
    web-based modeling by checking the "Allow web-based modeling"
    check box in the properties.
    
    When a connection is created through the new UI (Manage -> Data
    Server Connections), it creates an entry in the legacy UI as
    well. If a user wants to disable the Data Server Connection for
    web-based modeling, they go to the properties of the data source
    in Cognos Administration and uncheck the "Allow web-based
    modeling" option. After doing this, if they check the properties
    of the same data server connection again, the "Allow web-based
    modeling" option is still checked. It appears that when a
    connection is created through the New UI, it's impossible to
    disable "Allow web-based modeling" even though the option is
    exposed.
    

Local fix

  • Recreate data server connections through legacy UI (Cognos
    Administration -> Configuration tab -> Data source connections).
