Is there a way to run a report-> then have a python program to transform the report to text/csv with different delimiters -> then have Cognos send an email through the Cognos server with a link to the report?
I have the report built and the transformation program. I am a little lost as how I can get the file to be sent through the Cognos email server with the addresses defined on the report properties.
Philip Copeland – a couple of options:
1. Create a 1 column report with and concatenate in a custom delimiter, you can then schedule and email report from Cognos server, then you do not need Python at all for post processing.
2. Use the Cognos SDK to run the report, then process with custom delimiter, then email from Cognos SDK
