Import/Export Data Module json specification in Data Module editor
For some use cases it would be beneficial to be able to import and export the Data Module specification not only via REST API but within the Data Module editor: professional modelers can generate their Data Module specifications in external tools,...
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...
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...
Process Cognos Analytics report output further as input in Data Module
Purpose is usually very simple planning or easy implementation of data from an additional source. Workaround is file export, external processing & import as uploaded file (last even without a native scheduling). Transferring existing business ...
Allow Query set operations between packages or data modules
You can add data from multiple packages that use the dynamic query mode. However, Query set operations (join, union, intercept, except) are supported only for the default package or data module. Not being able to join queries built from different ...
Cognos Data module Lookup reference property for implementing relative time
Lookup reference property in Data Module is currently available only when creating calculations created within a table, but, not when we create calculations that reside outside of tables. We are trying to implement relative time for calculated fie...
open and use attribute (expand) content for datamodules in report creation, same as functionality in dashboards
We want to use the datamodules "members" in report creation directly. Same as the usage in dashboard. We can expand for example a attribute "country" to show up the distinct categories like "germany", "france" etc. for selection and filtering.
Due to the heightened levels of security, we are forced to change our credentials to data sources often. In Cognos Connection, we can associate multiple signons to each data source and each signon is defined by a name. It would be helpful if the s...
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.
Kerberos, or other passwordless connections are becoming the standard authentication method for data sources. Data Servers are requirements to use web-based modelling. However, to pull metadata in a data server connection requires the user to have...
