"Send the report by email" Not Showing

  • 1.  "Send the report by email" Not Showing

    Posted yesterday
    Has anyone encountered a situation where the "Send the report by email" option was missing and the only option was "Send a link to the report by email" when using "Run with options? I have been a Cognos Admin for over 19 years and have never seen that. I am trying to help the company that I'm doing work for now in an entirely different role verify that their Cognos environment, which is being patched to 10.2.2.7, is configured properly because they have had so much trouble with their 10.2.2.2 environment. When I try "Run with options" for reports, I only see "Send a link to the report by email". I know the "Send the report by email" can be hidden by an entry in a system.xml file, but that entry is not present, so I don't know why we can only get the link and cannot do an attachment.

    Hi Scott, there's an according new capability in 11.1.7:

    Since you're using 10.2.2 maybe there exists something according in the old user interface profiles:

    Thanks for the response, Philipp, but this does not apply to what is happening here. 10.2.2 Fix Pack 7 has been applied and I am trying to run a report and have the results emailed as an attachment. However, I do not see the "Send the report by email" when I choose Run with options. I only see "Send a link to the report by email". Also, when trying to schedule a report, I still only see "Send a link to the report by email" and do not have the option "Send the report by email".
