In recent blogs we focused on the Cognos audit tables and the audit extensions. We made the point in one of these articles that working with the Cognos audit data was important in understanding the data itself and how it could be used. So we thought it might be appropriate to pass on some tips of things we learned along the way that may help you maximize the value in creating a set of auditing tools for Cognos BI.
Our experience here has been one of discovery, which along with some tedious work, has helped in learning not only how to use the audit data to its fullest but to combine it with other data from the Cognos Content Store to improve the BI admin solutions we offer. We hope you find these tips useful.
