Detailed System Requirements
Version 11.1.7 is the last release of Cognos Analytics that supports Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft's legacy Edge browser, Ubuntu 14, Red Hat Linux (RHEL) 6 and SUSE 11.
As part of our continued effort to innovate on Cognos Analytics with the latest technology available in every new release, version 11.1.7 is the last release of Cognos Analytics that supports Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft's legacy Edge browser, Ubuntu 14, Red Hat Linux (RHEL) 6 and SUSE 11.
Ubuntu 14, RHEL 6 and SUSE 11 have passed their general end-of-support dates. Microsoft ended support for its legacy Edge browser in March 2021. Microsoft also ended support for Internet Explorer 11 for Microsoft Teams in November 2020 and will be expanding on this as part of their product roadmap.
We understand that some functionality, including PDF drill-through in Cognos Reports and Active Reports, may require IE 11. We are working on suitable solutions and will share more information about them soon.
Some organizations and users may choose to remain on the previously mentioned platforms. Cognos Analytics 11.1.7, our Long-term Support release for version 11.1, will continue to support these platforms, where possible, throughout its lifecycle.
Powerplay Studio 11.0 will support Microsoft Chromium edge alongside other currently supported browsers for the product as of Cognos Analytics 11.1.7 LTSR
IBM is also investigating support for the Google Chrome and Microsoft Chromium Edge browsers for Event Studio in an upcoming release of Cognos Analytics and hope to share more information around that soon.
IBM currently has no plans to upgrade browser conformance points for Query Studio and Analysis Studio as some browsers continue to support them including IE 11 in Cognos 11.1.7 and Firefox ESR in both Cognos Analytics 11.1.7 and 11.2.
