  • 1.  Audit extension problem

    Posted Tue May 24, 2022 10:38 AM
    Hi all,

    we need to find out the assignment to a cognos role/group per user.

    I think this should be possible with the audit extension but i failed to generate the WAR file:

    error: org.apache.tools.ant.Main      was not found

    Did anyone run into the same problem and have a solution?
    IBM support "can" not help as there is no support for the audit extension.
    We are running 11.1.7 and i am not sure if the audit extension is still running under this version.

    Or is there another way to check to which group a user is assigned?

    Thanks in advance for any comments.

    Hi,

    I think tools like BSP MetaManager can help with things like documenting your security. I don't think the author of the Audit Extension is still with IBM, sadly.

    Cheers!

    MF.

    Hi Marc,

    we use BSP but the needed information is not included in our license (or maybe at all).

    But thanks for your answer.

    Hi Andreas, 

    If you have BSP metamanager already, then you would be having access to the Document section under which you will find Canned Reports > Audit > Account Security Audit output that can give you what you are looking for.

    Hi,

    You might run this query in your Content Store database

    SELECT
    obj.NAME AS user_group,
    UPPER(COALESCE(props33.USERID, props33.NAME)) AS user_id
    FROM CMOBJECTS o
    INNER JOIN CMCLASSES c on c.CLASSID = o.CLASSID
    INNER JOIN CMOBJNAMES obj on o.CMID = obj.CMID and obj.ISDEFAULT = 1
    INNER JOIN CMREFORD1 ref ON o.CMID = ref.CMID
    INNER JOIN CMOBJECTS acc on ref.REFCMID = acc.CMID
    INNER JOIN CMOBJPROPS33 props33 on acc.CMID = props33.CMID 
    INNER JOIN CMCLASSES cacc ON acc.CLASSID = cacc.CLASSID 
    WHERE c.NAME = 'group' AND cacc.NAME = 'account'
    
    ​

    Hi Andreas

    I came accross the same problem with ant library components. How i resolved:

    Please have a look at the build.bat file. It is telling the necessary .jar files üand locations. Please download them and put in the proper places.

    Then it will be resolved.

    Let me know if you need further assistance.

    Hi Jeam,

    i checked your SQL statement and it looks quite promising.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Do you have other helpful SQL statements or a good source? The content store is still not well documented
    ( i know the documents regarding table name and possible content).

    More interesting would be real life use cases and answers from the content store (like your SQL).

    Thanks again.

    BR
    Andreas

    Hi Andreas,

    I have some scripts to my specific needs.

    A good start point to understand Content Store tables is the CSsize_profiling.sql script. It is located in your content manger install folder/configuration/schemas/content.

    Hi Andreas,

    Did you try the Audit Extension from this IBM page?
    IBM Cognos c11AuditExtension
