This document presents a concept supporting a role-based Cognos portal structure, in the way it packages sets of reports and distributes the reports to subsets (roles) of users. All the reports that you want to distribute to a user/role are given a shortcut and these shortcuts are then put in dedicated folders.
In this example, we have put together four folders containing reports for a Store Manger role:
Here you see the shortcuts in the Sales folder:
The layout can be as flexible as your own imagination, since the silver platter used is actually Report Studio. The concept was tested and proven on Cognos version 10.1 and 10.2 using Oracle database for the Content Store.
