Sharing and Embedding Content in IBM #Cognos Analytics 11.0.5

By KEVIN MCFAUL posted Thu November 24, 2016 09:27 AM

In IBM Cognos Analytics 11.0.5, you can easily share IBM Cognos Analytics content objects with other users. You can share content objects, such as report, dashboard, story, data set and module with a URL that opens the content object directly, instead of having to navigate to the content object from the Cognos Analytics welcome screen.

You can also embed Cognos Analytics content objects, reports, dashboard and stories in web pages. An embedded content object will not display the application or navigation bars by default but will remain interactive (if applicable).

In Team Content or My Content, navigate to the object; right click and you now see Share and embed in the content explorer menu.

You can copy the URL and add the Embed element to a web page to display the content object. You can also customized the embed code, for additional information, see how to create custom URLs to display and run Cognos Analytics content.

If your Cognos Analytics server requires user authentication, the Cognos Analytics sign-in screen is shown when a Share or Embed link is displayed. After you sign in, the Cognos Analytics content is displayed. You can use single sign on to avoid multiple logins.
