Hi All, On 12 May 2021, IBM Cognos Analytics 11.2.0 was released. I have some Global Customers asking me when the IBM Cloud will be upgraded to this new (great) release. Told them, IBM is working this, but right now, I don't know anymore. So, IBM can you share the planned date when the Cloud Version ...

Hi Maarten, So on the IBM Cloud right now (2021/05/21) the IBM Cloud Cognos Analytics is available since 19 May ? Trust it will IBM not take more as one day to upgrade from CA 11.1.7 to CA 11.2.0 ? If not, why going to the cloud ..... Within our Global Enterprise Environment (hosted within Germany) ...

Hi Peter, Thanks for the reply again. Based on your post I found out what going wrong. Using the 'everyone' group does work, but that's not what we have and need. We have some different groups we need to give other capabilities and apparently that's not possible. Back to the drawing board and another ...

Hi Peter, It would make sense if it was working. I setup on folder level the required settings including the lower folders. But it looks like Cognos is not looking at these settings. Kind Regards, ------------------------------ Chris Bos ------------------------------

Hi Rachel, I appreciate your response on this forum/blog. Unfortunately I have to agree with Maarten, it's getting harder to defend Cognos to customers within Europe. I still love working with Cognos, but don't like discusions about BI capabilities. Before Cognos Analytics, IBM bought Many Eyes, but ...

Hi, Can someone explain to me the purpose of the Capabilies setting on Folder level ? Creating a folder within the Team Folder you can set some properties. There is a Capabilities TAB, but it looks like, Cognos ignores anything you configure here. I know deny overules the allow, but it looks like it's ...

Hi Jim, Strange situation but there should be a logical solution. Perhaps you tried this but... : - Is your account used within Cognos installation (Cognos Configuration) ? - Is your account setup within Cognos Configuration to connect to the Content-Store ? - Is your account within Windows setup to ...

Hi Richard, I -normally- totally agree with you not going with "dot zero" releases, but with Cognos I think it almost doesn't matter anymore. With every release there are bugs or 'unwanted-features' even with 11.1.7 there are, so for me the "dot zero" isn't important anymore. When IBM released the first ...

Hi Robert, Why not going to CA 11.2.0 ? Today CA 11.2.0 is released. I don't know about any FP3. Kind Regards, ------------------------------ Chris Bos ------------------------------

Hi Peter, Thanks for your reply, but as you can read, it's not an option within our environment(s). I'm aware of the option within the BI Suite, but it currently it's not possible and it looks like IBM doesn't understand the request of many customers. There are more RFE's created for this issue, and ...

Hi Philipp, Thanks, but it looks like IBM doesn't see the benefit of this request. There are more requests for the RFE. I got only the status "Not Under Consideration" but don't know what's the reason. Did vote on your request. Kind Regards, ------------------------------ Chris Bos ----------------- ...

Hi Robert, I like IBM is asking for feedback of clients on this (or other forums), but I dislike, it looks like IBM is doing nothing with this. This issue is a request of many companies all over the world and I don't understand why this is not already fixed. Created a few RFE, but looks like it's not ...

Hi Robert, Thanks for your reply. I also thought about this option, but the situation is we have different teams responsible for different data-marts. So, we need different team-mail addresses available and can't use the one within Cognos Configuration. Creating a 'technical' team-user is also not an ...

All, Within Cognos you are able to schedule report(s) with sending mails. But when creating a schedule, you are the 'owner' and send-reply person. Is there a way to create a schedule and add a group-mailbox / team-mailbox instead of a personal mail-box ? When end-users receive a scheduled mail, they ...

Hi Maarten, Thanks for your reply again. I agree with you, IBM Cognos Analytics is one of the best Analytics suite available at the moment. Although I love & like Tableau / PowerBI (MS-BI) / Qlik, for me they are tools and not (yet) BI Suites. But, there is always a but..... I can't, and will not ...

Hi Peter, Exactly, that's my opinion too. IBM, don't focus on one Collaboration tool, but add others as well. And make the existing capability also available with the CA GUI (add comments to saved reports). I don't want to have to install a Collaborations tool for something what was available within ...

Hi Maarten, Thanks for you reply. With the parameter and new URL (/v1/disp), it is indeed possible to add the comments like is was available within C8/C10. But to be honest, it is the same to show a Windows 3.11 GUI within Windows 10.... it doesn't look nice but old-fashioned, don't you agree. I will ...

Hi Peter, Thanks for your reply. I missed this one to, but nice there is another configuration for your own collaboration setup. It looks like there is only an intergration with Slack, so how about other tools like TEAMS / WIRE / Confluence and others? There a many companies with other tools I think. ...

Hi All, Perhaps I missed this, but within C10 you are able to add some comments to a saved report. Users who has access to the report, where able to create some comments to the report. Within the tool-bar, there was an option [Add Commants]... but within C11 I don't see that option. Should this still ...
