[QUERYSTUDIO] Cognos Portal prevents starting QS with Microsoft Edge Chromium v88 & Chrome v88

  • 1.  [QUERYSTUDIO] Cognos Portal prevents starting QS with Microsoft Edge Chromium v88 & Chrome v88

    Posted 4 days ago
    Dear Cognosgurus,

    we still have some 1.500 QS Users on one of our installation. The cognos portal prevents using QS when browsing with Chrome v88.
    It opens the viewer instead of QS and converts reports to Reportstudio reports.

    Is there a way to force the Cognos Portal to open QS instead of viewer and converting?

    Any hint is appreciated.

    @Ralf Roeber - Query Studio is now one of IBM's "legacy" studios and, I believe, these can only be opened with Internet Explorer.
    I know Chrome doesn't work, but I am not sure about Edge.

    Hope this helps.

    Adam McIlravey – I agree with Ralf Roeber, Chrome doesn't support QS/AS.  I also tested Edge this morning and it also doesn't support QS/AS.  You option for now is to use IE to make any QS report edits or us the other browsers to convert the QS report to Report.

    Hi Ralf,

    you can force the client to use Internet Explorer even if chrome is the default browser.
    Then Cognos Connection opens in IE.

    One of many samples:
    windows - Open Internet Explorer from Chrome using a protocol handler (ie:url) - Stack Overflow

    As I remember, there is a tool by google to redirect certain urls to IE...

    cheers

    Hi Ralf,

    Query Studio and Analysis Studio have always been available for FireFox and IE only. 

    Thanks

    You can force Query Studio to open in any browser. just create a link. We created a folder called Query Studio and placed a URL link inside. The link forces QS to open in a new window, regardless of which browser.

    Query Studio will only open in IE11 and Firefox.  It is not supported in Chrome or Edge.  It is my understanding from conversations with IBMers that this is not expected to change, as QS is a legacy tool.

    AS and Event Studio have the same browser limitations.

    Hello Ralf,

    Have you tried this type of url yet?

    In my environment it works, both in Chrome and Edge.

    https://yourserver/yourcognos11/bi/v1/disp?b_action=xts.run&m=portal%2Flaunch.xts&ui.gateway=%2Fcognos11%2Fbi%2Fv1%2Fdisp&ui.tool=QueryStudio&ui.object=&ui.action=new&launch.launchinWindow=true&backURL=disp%3Fb_action%3Dxts.run%26m%3Dportal%2Fclose.xts



    PS for Analysis Studio, this url works: https://yourserver/yourcognos11/explore/explore.htm
