    Is anyone using a tool to develop regressions test scripts for Cognos Analytics using a recordable low code/no code tool?  We have 100's of projects,  1000"s of users and 100,000's of reports and dashboards making upgrades a slow process while we allow time for regression testing. Many teams do not perform tests and then have problems in production.  Looking for recommendations on tools that we can investigate to reduce this time and cost.

    Thanks, Kay

    Hi,

    IBM has deprecated Cognos LifeCycle Manager, but if you have an installer, might be usefull for you.

    It's is the same installer of Cognos Clients, if I'm not wrong.

    Or you can use Motio, I guess it was bought by IBM.

    Take a look at co.meta, no code, automated tests, lots of options.

    Thanks for the suggestions.  We want to avoid Lifecycle Manager as it is deprecated and we are trying to build up a future facing solution that we can grow over time. 

    Thanks Paul for the Cometa suggestion,  we'll go check it out.

    Hello Kay,

    it would be a pleasure to demo cometa with IBM Cognos to you.

    Also, you might want to watch a recording of the pmsquare webinar with Cometa.

    Best regards,
    Ralf

    Hi Kay,
    To piggy back on what Paul and Ralf mentioned, Cometa can actually be pretty powerful when it comes to regression testing. Happy to schedule some time to discuss in detail... or provide a demo. Let me know!
