Note: Samples are functional examples. Many are code samples with narrow requirements and a specific use case, providing you with a baseline. They do not include every possible feature/interactivity or environment/configuration. You can use these samples as-is (supported by IBM), or you can modify/extend these samples to suit your business needs (not supported). IBM will provide support if these assets do not work as described for the product version(s) identified. However, we are unable to provide custom support for you such as adding features or troubleshooting environmental issues. These will be logged in our system as future Feature requests.

The Extended Samples demonstrate how to use IBM Cognos Analytics with a database (Framework Manager package). They require the use of a database and database connections to host the sample Great Outdoors Company (GO) data. Consequently, they must be installed and configured.

The Extended Samples for Cognos Analytics 11.1.0 and below are installed via the installation program.

Starting with Cognos Analytics 11.1.1, you can directly download all of the required files from this Blog post:
