Cognos Analytics authentication

Install Cognos Analytics. It did not create a Analytics menu item on the adman server. When I click on Cognos Reporting it takes me to a log in page for Cognos Analytics. FlexNet authentication is pointing to the itself and not the admin server.

I would suggest trying the following...

  • Make sure to configure your analytics server under Admin --> System Configuration --> Reporting
  • Make sure you configure your Admin user with to Web Administrator under Reporting --> Report Designer --> Assign Cognos Roles and assign other users to Analytics User

Log out and log back in to test.  If those don't work, I would suggest you submit a Case to our technical support team since something else might have gone wrong with your installation.
