Saving Cognos pdf reports to a folder
Posted on 2009-06-29
I am trying to save a Cognos 8.4 report to a file but i do not see the option mentioned in the documentation 'Save to the File System'.
-- I have set the the Cognos Configuration setting for Content Manager 'Save output reports...' to True.
--I set a path for the CM.OUTPUTLOCATION on the server in Cognos Server Administration
I want save a pdf report to the same server where cognos 8 is installed...though I might want to move it later. Right now I am just trying to save a pdf file to a folder on the server...i will eventually want to rename and maybe move it which is where I would need a script but right now I can't seem to save it to a folder.
According to the documentation I would then expect to see an option in Cognos Connection to 'Save to the file system' but all I see is 'Save the report' and 'Save the report as report view'
What else do I need to do to enable the option for saving outside of cognos to a file system?
Below are my options under Delivery when scheduling a report. According to the documentation i have read there should be another option of 'Save to the file system' but it isn't showing for me:
Select at least one delivery method. For burst reports, the email recipients are determined by the burst specification.
Save the report
Save the report as a report view Edit the options...
Report View of MeterReader_Test
Print the report
Select a printer...
Send a link to the report by email Edit the options...
0 recipients __.____._
Is there any other step I need to include to enable the option to save the pdf file to a folder on the server?
