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...
Ability to track changes in the permission groups/roles in the Cognos namespace

In a dynamic environment many groups are added very often in AD and requires to be added also in Cognos Analytics OIDC namespace. Automation the import of the CVS will improve the time spent to manually import the file. A nice feature will be also...
Would like to be able to use data source credentials as variables in the JDBC connection strings
When using the latest MSSQL driver we can utilize connection parameters: domain=targetdomain;authenticationScheme=NTLM;user=sa;password=thepassword to allow Windows Authentication using a service account other than the one running IBM Cognos servi...
