IBM Cognos Analytics 11 RC 5 SSO Tips & Tricks

I was recently configuring IBM Cognos Analytics and IBM Cognos Planning Analytics 2.0 for a new customer.  They requested Single Sign On.  While I was somewhat skeptical it would  even work as I have had a 50% success rate with SSO and Cognos 11 from the base release.

 

I had prepared myself as best I could as a consultant.  Looking forward to a true challenge, which I was met with head on the second day of my engagement.

I followed the IBM documentation letter by letter.  Honestly it was fairly simple to follow, again based on prior experiences the documentation has always been lack luster to say the least.  After some investigation I noticed that when trying to implement IBM Cognos BI 11 RC 5 and IBM Cognos TM1   10.3 I was being redirected to an invalid address.  Since IBM Cognos TM1 will leverage the Legacy SSO for the BI implementation meaning (http://servername:80/ibmcognos/cgi-bin/cognosisapi.dll) for the CAM URI address the blank IIS Rule was incorrectly pointed to (v1/login$) where the correct value is (bi/v1/login$).

Please feel free to reach out to use if you have implementation or installation issues as we have experts to help you along your Analytics Journey.
