Cognos Analytics with Watson

  • 1.  Cognos Analytics - Error Codes

    Posted 11 days ago
    I'm building a dashboard around the audit data to track usage of our environment. I'm also trying to create some insights into errors, As you know the error messages we see in Cognos are quite verbose and not always very helpful. What I'm trying to achieve is take the codes and group them into a high level category i.e. Report Service, Security etc. and a slightly more detailed sub category. So my question is does anyone out there have a list of error codes and their general meaning. I've been unable to find anything myself but this must exist or others must have tried to do a similar analysis. Any help or suggestions on this would be greatly welcomed. Thank you in advance..

    Hi Eric,

    (updated to add common errors text and link)
    A few years ago, Localization Development Kit (LDK) was probably the solution. I believe this product is not available anymore with Cognos Analytics v11.x.
    LDK was a licensed product that comes with the C10.x.x SDK Installation package in the later IBM Cognos 10 versions.

    You can find some common errors in:
    Common errors

    I like your idea to group error messages.

    Best regards,

    I too am looking for a list of error codes in addition to a list of vocabulary words relative to the build and deployment of software application from a DevOps Engineer/Systems Administration/data analytics perspective.
