Cognos Analytics with Watson

  • 1.  Highlighting conditionally formatted data with color

    Posted Fri August 28, 2020 04:02 AM
    I am using Cognos Embedded in Watson Studio and I saw a new release has been recently setup, which is absolutely awesome.
    However, I am having issues in highlighting conditionally formatted data with color in a cross tab.
    I can't follow the instructions reported at https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSEP7J_11.1.0/com.ibm.swg.ba.cognos.ug_ca_dshb.doc/ca_conditional_formatting_xtab.html. In fact, Cognos embedded doesn't give the possibility to select a measure from the available data list nor set rules.
    I attempted adding my measure as color in the fields section, but it doesn't show up colours the way I need (moreover, if I select average/sum/max/min as summarise it shows up an error message).

    May you help?
    Thanks a lot in advance

    Good day Massimo,

    The currently released version of Cognos Analytics is 11.1.7 which added the ability to define conditional formatting rules for the crosstab visualization.  The version of Cognos Dashboard Embedded used in Watson Studio was upgraded to code based on 11.1.6.  As 11.1.7 is the long-term support release (LTSR) the team will upgrade CDE to R7 in due time but we haven't formed a date yet.
