In this article we’ll be touring through MetaManager’s new and improved Object Editor, Object Viewer and Canned Reports modules. The Canned Reports module is designed to quickly export pre-designed and formatted reports that cover a number of questions and concerns that arise in the content store.

MetaManager’s Canned Reports

  • The Account Security Audit allows you to review the group memberships, access rights and datasource access for specific users and groups.
  • The Scheduled Content Report lists all of the schedules and the recipients that receive any emailed content.
  • The License Audit Report shows a listing of each user account, the capabilities granted and the license required to cover that user’s access.
  • The Stored Outputs Report is a listing of each output, the format, and the size of the output that is taking up space in the content store.
  • The Environment Comparison Document shows a listing of orphaned objects, similarities and differences between two IBM Cognos Content Stores.

MetaManager’s Object Viewer

Object Viewer is the newest module in MetaManager. This module is the culmination of the old Advanced Mode in Object Editor, the Specification Editor Module and many of the rich property editors found throughout the product. With this module you can easily get under the covers on any object in the content store, review and modify the raw XML, update parameters, policies and report specifications with ease.
