IBM Data and AI RegTech Ideas Portal

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Task Focused UI - Linked Cognos reports opening in old Cognos viewer interface

With the upgrade to Cognos Analytics 11, one of the main functionalities is with report interactivity. OpenPages integration with Cognos is still using the pre-Cognos Analytics method and many of the new features do not run eg. Filters.

Looking in the CommandCenter_Redirect.jsp, there appears to be a check to see if the CognosTool parameter has been set to "CognosAnalytics" instead of "CognosViewer" (the default). However, the CognosTool parameter on the Report Redirect template in OPX is not available to select from in the OpenWith drop down. It looks like this is missing from the file - or a new template is needed to use it. There is a Cognos Analytics template that can be used but this is just to open the product itself, not to run a report.

    Thank you again for submitting this Idea!

    This request will not be delivered within the release currently under development, but the theme is aligned with our multi-year strategy. IBM is soliciting RFE Community feedback for this request through activities such as voting. IBM will update this request in the future.

    Yes,  Many new features  in interactivity and 11.1 visualizations are also not support in Cognos Classic viewer.
