Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Adding members from the same hierachy to Context Filters removes Page Layers members

I have a case against the samples where we have two report pages each with a cross-tab driven by a separate query.

On page 1 I add a few members from Order Method in the Page layers section for Page 1.

Then on page 2 I add a few member from Order method in Context filters.

When I go back to page 1 the page layers member are no longer there.

I have reproduced this against the Powercube samples as well as the DMR sample on Cognos 10.2.1 FP2.

Customer said that they spent quite a bit of time designing a report and in their final stages they added some items as Context filters and found that the Page layers items were all gone.

This can be reproduced with any number of pages (even 1 page) in the report as long as the members belong to the same hierarchy i.e. if I added Camping Equipment and Mountaineering Equipment to the Page layers on page 1 and then added Cooking and Rope to Context filter on page 2 the Page layers items will disappear from page 1.
