Cognos Analytics - CA on Cloud On-Demand - Go Database

    Hello, 

    I've started the IBM Cognos Cloud Trial for Cognos Analytics and I was hoping to use it to access the Go data warehouse samples but the documentation states that the cloud version (other than a hosted instance) doesn't support that.  I was thinking of creating the database on my client and linking it via data server connection so I should continue my training after my courses are over.  Is this possible?   Has anyone else had this challenge with the Cloud version of Cognos Analytics?

    This is a note I found about the lack of availibity of the Go database in 2019 -  I imagine that that may not have an incentive to make the Go database available but it would be nice if there was a workaround such as installing to my pirvate desktop and creating a data server connection to it to create the packages that way.

    Hi Daniel

    You should still be able to find the Great Outdoor data set :
    /content/folder[@name='Samples']/folder[@name='By feature']/folder[@name='Core']/folder[@name='Data']/module[@name='Great outdoors data module']
