  • 1.  How to Create Hyperlink Buttons in Cognos Dashboard

    Posted Wed November 25, 2020 10:06 AM
    I would want to create hyperlink buttons on a Cognos dashboard to access other tabs or dashboard in a particular environment. How do we do this.  I don't want to use a report but a dashboard.

    Hi Varun, thank you for your question.

    Currently there is not a solution in dashboard that will allow you to achieve what you want. There is an Idea in Aha that is similar, and noted as a 'Future consideration'. We encourage you to vote for it, leave your use case(s) and problem(s) you are trying to solve as comments, and to vote on any other ideas in Aha that would meet your requirements. And of course, if you have other suggestions to improve Cognos Analytics that are not captured in an existing idea, we encourage you to create a new Idea and ask others to vote on it.

    On the same idea of having hyperlinks, is it possible to access reports form Dashboards ?  I'd like to replace portal pages and workspaces, but it seems the functionality in CA11 are not yet there.

    Hi Mauro,

    today, you can already access cognos reports via the  dashboard drill through functionality. ( with passing of parameters ) https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSEP7J_11.0.0/com.ibm.swg.ba.cognos.ug_ca_dshb.doc/ca_drill_through_concept.html

    Hi Varun,

    There is a visualization available in the Accelerator catalog:   Add a link button to open a URL
