Cognos Report Template - Insert FIQ

Apply the same FIQ to one or multiple reports. This section describes how to use a FIQ in a Cognos Report. The first few steps are about adding an XML Data source to Dekho’s selection servlet.

Step 01> In Cognos Administration, Click the Configuration Tab and Click the New Data Source button.

Step 02> Enter a name for the  Data sources and Click next.

Step 03> Select XML as the data source Type and Click Next.

Step 04> Enter the following URL back to the Dekho query servlet and Click finish.


Modify the URL to suit your Dekho configuration.




PLEASE NOTE: Cognos requires the sessionid to appear in the URL as ??sessionid??

Change the field names in the select statement to match those returned by your FIQ.
