You use the sample audit reports to view the information in a logging database about user and report activity. You may find this useful for such things as:
- Capacity planning
- Licensing conformance
- Performance monitoring
- Identifying unused content
The audit samples are now part of the IBM Cognos Analytics Server installation. A separate installation is not required. After you install the CA Server, you can find the samples here: CA_install_location/samples/Audit_samples/.
These samples are only supported with DB2, Oracle, and SQL Server databases.
Here are the instructions
for configuring Audit Reporting.
We have added one new sample audit report in 11.0.10: Deleted user account report
This sample audit report lists user accounts that have been deleted during a specified time period. It provides information about the deleted user ID, the time deleted, the account type, and the status of the request.
Audit data about Dashboards and Stories is now available. The Audit FM
model has been modified to extract dashboard/story and package names from the COGIPF_RUNREPORT logging table. Two of the sample audit reports have been modified to include this new data:
- Execute reports, dashboards and stories by package for past 30 days
- Execute reports, dashboards and stories by user
We have improved the look and feel, increased the overall usability of the reports, and switched all the reports to Dynamic Query Mode.
