Use AI to provide a summary of text fields

databases provide limited capability for aggregating text - Min / Max / Count is about it. But AI is demonstrating how it can provide a summary from a lot of text input. We could use AI to provide a text summary. For example, we could have a produ...

Join multiple packages and data modules in one report

There is a more and more urgent requirement from our users to join contents of packages and data modules in queries in authoring (as well as in datasets). Note that packages and data modules could have different permissions and object specific cap...

Add Data Set operations to audit logging

Add user actions surrounding data set creation/modification/refreshes to audit logs. When researching when a data set was refreshed, there seems to be nothing in the audit logs that stores that this action happened. Request data set refresh and an...

Implement an option to read DB credentials from AWS Secret Manager rather than embedding a signon in Cognos Analytics.

Centralised secrets management lowers administration overhead - being able to integrate with a standard secrets repository and leverage those security factors would reduce maintenance within Cognos Analytics.

"Allow the server to automatically load the file" in Cognos Analytics 11.2+

Modern browsers have disabled sharing of full file path for security reasons. Cognos requires full path for this option to work but no modern browser will share full path. I ask if there are plans to change how it behaves on Cognos side to allow e...

When importing tables to module format label to remove and underscores and capitalize the first letter. This was something that occurred in the past and no longer exists.

In the past we were able to bring tables into a module and the label/field name would automatically update from user_phone_number to User Phone Number. This was a huge time savings for large tables.

Ability to "view lineage" on data sources when creating queries in a data set (mimic existing ability from query building in reporting )

similar to building a report, it is helpful to check lineage on field sources when building datasets. In reporting , once a source is added user may right click on any field name, select lineage, change radio button to detail and view the complete...

Object Level Security at Table and Field Level for Data Modules

Data Modules do not currently have a way to specify object level security at the table or field level the way Framework Manager does. You should be able to set which tables and fields a particular user or group of users is able to see. There are m...

Changing the source of a dataset

As a data analyst I want to be able to change the source of a dataset. This is necessary when it has been moved or the location name has been changed. We know where the source is, but there's no way we can change the source.

I am requesting a change to the RunProcess function that would allow it to convert a string to numeric just as the current ExecuteCommand function operates.

It has come to my attention that the ExecuteCommand function will eventually be discontinued and that the RunProcess function should be used instead. We are currently using the ExecuteCommand function in a generic process that is used to kick off ...
