Personnalized Session Parameter

We need to add a Session Parameter available in Frame Work Manager or Report. The purpose is to personnalize a parameter by environnment production, validation, etc in the Cognos configuration context and use it in FM or Report.

  • Future consideration
Who would benefit from this IDEA? Usefull for project developpers.
How should it work?

Te best way seems to become a new possible key in the System Advanced Settings of the System Administration Console of Cognos Analytics.
Then the administators can set a different value by environnement.

    We understand the use case but weren't sure where you wanted them to be added. In dashboards? Data modules? Anywhere else in the product?

    Also, please provide a detailed use case of how the users expect to use and benefit from this functionality so we can design it based on that.

    It would be great as it could also be used to provide an unified experience from Dashdoard to Report
