Sharing Cognos content — adding reports as portal tabs

In the previous recipe we saw how a portal page can be designed and Cognos content can be placed on it to share it with other users.

In this recipe we will look at another way of sharing data. Here, we want to add certain reports as individual portal tabs, each of which should quickly provide a pigeon-hole view on a certain business area.

Getting ready

Make sure that IBM Cognos 10 server is up and running along with the GO Sales and GO Data Warehouse samples. Log on to Cognos Connection.

To add reports as portal tabs, perform the following steps:

  1. In the IBM Cognos Connection window, navigate to Public Folders | My Portal and create a new folder with the name Potal Tab Reports
