A customer just hit us with a use case and we knocked it down with Script Runner. Check out this new article posted to the knowledgeBase which shows how to use MetaManager’s™ Script Runner module to synchronize IBM Cognos Groups with information stored in a Database Table (or in an Excel file).  The article describes the technique and provides a copy of the database create script, the Excel file and most importantly the MetaManager™ script.  Perhaps there’s something that we can automate for you?
