  • 1.  Upgrade CAFE models from Cognos 10 to Cognos Analytics

    Is there a way to upgrade CAFE models from Cognos 10 to Cognos Analytics?
    We have a numbers of models with explorations built on a connetion to Cognos 10. Now with an upgrade to Cognos Analytics we would like to change the system reference to the new version so we don't need to redo all the models.

    We are able to use CAFE with Cognos Analytics that is confirmed but would like to update the Excel model and connect to a different Cognos System.

    ​If your models use cell-based then it's easy to do a search and replace to change all the references. There is also a utility in the CAFE Options section that changes all the connection references for you.  Assuming the cube folder structure is the same as it was in the prior system then that is all you need to do.  If the cube location structure is different then you'll need to do the separate search/replace on the cube source too. 
    If you are using crosstab models then your only option is to rebuild the crosstabs as there is no utility available to change these pointers.  Crosstab models have all the connection information hidden within the workbook which makes it impossible to edit.
    Good luck.
