  • 1.  Cognos 11.2 Content (Tabs)

    Posted Tue June 01, 2021 06:05 AM
    Hi all,

    With testing the 11.2 from my cloud with the On-prem i had the following difference.
    Within the Content page, I have an additional Tab on my cloud called Samples. I thought this was a basic new option to make like in C10.
    But I could not find any entry to make an additional tab with a reference to an existing Folder within the Public team Content.

    Tested every button and menu option, and also could not find any reference in the online manuals.

    I would like to look at the option to pre-build some tabs for different user groups. sow i can remove the team content and only show their specific tab depending on Role/Group.

    @Maarten den Dunnen You can add a custom folder via role Customization. I've attached a screenshot for reference.​

    Thanks but that was not the capability i was looking for.
    Like you see at the picture from the cloud the Tab from Samples as additional layout and text, sow it almost looks like an extension only thing. Not something klick an play by setting a property item like add as Tab. And then you set set security on the tab like you would to with folder (c10 style).

    Also the custom folder option on the Role is something you can only use for 1 folder (to my experience, based on 11.1)

    @Maarten den Dunnen

    You can add a custom Extension to the content perspective that points to a folder path within team content. The nice thing with extensions is you can hide or show the extension based on the user role via role customization.

    If you would like, I can send you a sample extension that adds another tab to the content perspective?​

    That would be nice, i couldn't find any new documentation with the new perspectives and options supported by the new 11.2 design.
    In 11.1 there was a page where they had the different perspective objects specified and given al the standaard property option default from Cognos.

    in the 11.2 this page(s) are missing or not yet published public.

    Attached is the Extension. By default it points to the "Get Started" folder. Also, attached is screenshot showing how to remove it for a specific role.

    Our team is working on getting the docs updated to support the new interface and extensions.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks Danny,

    I'm going to test some things out with your script. Thanks again !!
    Looking forward to the new documentation for extensions in 11.2

    To clarify making new tabs like in c10 from click and play, is not something is going to be added in 11.2 ? More from the perspective that to my knowledge IBM does not support custom build extensions. Do's this basic addition to the content screen via an extension means that this does do not fall under support? Because it was shown in the pre- demos as a specific feature for 11.2 sow that's why I thought it would be something you can do out of the box without extensions.

    @Maarten den Dunnen Not a problem. To create new tabs is not on the short term roadmap. However, I would suggest logging an RFE. https://ibm-data-and-ai.ideas.aha.io/

    You are correct, custom extensions have limited support. If the extensions is provided from our accelerator catalog, the team managing that can help.

    However, for this specific extension, I'm working with our team to get it added to our base samples that are provided with the product. The sample extensions provided with the Cognos Analytics install are supported.​

    Maarten,

    Did you get this to work? I am trying to add one of my Team Content folder to show up as a tab along with My content and Team Content in 11.2.2.

    Thanks,
