I would like to have the ability to schedule a refresh of an uploaded file. If you store your excel or text to a file share and grant Cognos access to that share, you should have the ability to schedule a refresh of that data file.
Add a feature in account management to see which user group a user belongs to
I can take a look at the user group to see which user belongs to that group. However, there is no way to see which user group a user belongs to. So you need to contact the user and ask them to take a look at their settings. Please add a feature in...
Email notification when job or tasks within job fail
We make use of datasets and have a job to schedule the refresh for these datasets every night. Sometimes the refresh fails for some reason. At this moment we don't get any notification that something went wrong. We would like to be able to configu...

Set Capability in Teamcontent and on Datasources/Dataservers
In Cognos, I want to set role/group base capability on items in Team Content and on datasources/dataservers. Users have permissions on lots of sources, like datasources/dataservers, datamodules and packages, because users run Cognos reports and da...
Remove unsuccessful login entries labeled as "Not Available" from Cognos Analytics audit package
When we tried to find out the logon information using the audit package in Cognos Analytics then we noticed that the user name details are showing as 'not available' in the audit report. Detailed explanation: When the logging level for ContentMana...
With the push to provide easier mechanisms to share Cognos content, I would like IBM to develop plugins for popular website, CRM, and e-commerce providers. The plugin should allow the website owner to define the credentials used, the target conten...
