The following entries have to match to the URLs in the IBM Cognos Configuration. The URL entries are case sensitive.
CAMBIDomain - It should be set to the domain of the host the TM1 Application Server runs on. Example: Assume the TM1 Application Server URL is
http://cognosgw.mydomain.company.com:9510, then the CAMBIDomain should be set to .mydomain.company.dom (mind the leading dot). (e.g. .ibm.com )
CAMBIURL - This is the Dispatcher URI for external applications of a single IBM Cognos BI Dispatcher to which the PM-Hub will send requests to validate the BI authentication.
CAMGatewayURL - specify the URL of the IBM Cognos BI selected for PM-Hub entry point. Ensure using a consistent naming scheme like FQDN or NetBIOS only. The URL specified here will be used when PM-Hub generates re-directs for the BI authentication to be called.
