Report locations within a job

  • 1.  Report locations within a job

    Posted Thu March 11, 2021 03:25 AM
    Hi - we've recently upgraded from CA11.1.3 to 11.1.7. In the previous version I was able to view a job in classic format, and from there I was able to see the reort locations for all the reports in the job. 

    That doesn't seem to be possible anymore - is there a way to find out where the reports are saved? I want to recreate a scheduled job, but I don't want to have to search for each report in there.

    TIA
    Chris

    We have same issues in 11.1.7. More of us should request putting back the Classis view in 7.2

    This is what a developer sent me about the new job tool:

    The problem with the new Job layout in Cognos is that you cannot see what name has been assigned to the output. In some jobs there are many rows that use the same report and in the specs for the run a name is assigned to the report output based on the parameter chosen in the job. Looking at the new Job page this information cannot be seen at the top level so there is no way of telling which row is which. You have to dig down into the specs to see which report you need to work on. 

    This is not as useful as the old style, 'classic' view
