Installing the IBM Cognos Samples

4. Running the Dynamic Cube Samples

Now you can install the Dynamic Cube samples. Remember that it is required that the previous steps need to be executed successfully before enabling the Dynamic Cubes samples. This means restoring the sample databases and creating the necessary data source connections for it in IBM Cognos Administration. Also make sure that the Cognos user that is going to run the Dynamic Cubes has trusted credentials.

  • Open IBM Cognos Cube Designer.
