Network Graph: Copy/Use Dashboard viz to Reports

  • 1.  Network Graph: Copy/Use Dashboard viz to Reports

    Posted 11 days ago
    Hi,

    I am using Cognos 11. I want to create a network graph for my data set as follows:

    ID Code 1 Code 2
    1016490 1608 1606
    1093779 1606 1801
    54465 1801
    54547 1801
    62722 2001

    The size of the node will show the count of ID and will be connected on Code1-->2.
    I have a viz available in reports that asks for Node(numeric) and Name, under categories container.
    And in Links container it asks for From node (numeric) to To node (Numeric). I can't get this viz to work.
    So I have another viz available in dashboard, that has only 3 fields i.e. From and To and Line width. This viz works. Is there a way I can copy that viz to reports?

    Screenshots attached for the Report and Dashboard Viz.

    The copy and paste method would accomplish this.
    1. select the viz on the dashboard
    2. use the keyboard ctrl-c
    3. create a report from the same metadata
    4. use the keyboard ctrl-v

    Keep in mind that this copy/paste technique only works on Windows w/ Internet Explorer

    Yes Norbert, I do believe Chrome does support same copy/paste functionality, however not all browsers do, for instance, this does not work in Firefox on Windows.

    Maybe its a version problem because I just confirmed on Mac and Windows with FF and it works just fine :)

    Thanks Norbert. Keyboard Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V doesn't work for me. Also, there is no copy option on the dashboard viz.

    I am using 11.1.x.  I do not believe 11.0 supported the keyboard copy.
