Restrict the size for a report output

We need to limit the size of a report output (i.e. pdf, csv, xlsx) to a maximum size.

Defined by us. A warning message should be produced for the users in case that the

report exceeds this defined limit. Unfortunately this functionality is currently not available

in Cognos.

    Please note, your competitors offer the ability to apply Admin filters, to limit user execution of Dashboards/Reports based on Execution Count, Row Counts, Data Volume, Date Ranges of Data (I.E. only allow a three-month window at a time, etc.), and more.

    We would like further observability, administration, and performance tools, to help prevent a single user from bringing down Cognos for everyone else.

    This is not currently on our roadmap. However we will continue monitoring this request through public voting and adjust the status accordingly if needed.
