IBM Cognos Insight 10.2.2 Fix Pack 4 - Applying data spreading to rules-derived consolidated values

Product documentation


Abstract

Enable the Spread on Rule Derived Consolidated Cells setting in IBM Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler to allow multiple data spreading options in rules-derived consolidated cells in Cognos Insight.

Content

In previous versions of Cognos Insight, you could not enter a value in a rules-derived consolidated cell.

As of Cognos Insight 10.2.2 Fix Pack 4, you can enable data spreading on such cells. When data spreading is enabled in Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler, entering a value in a rules-derived consolidated cell in Insight results in a dialog box that gives you the option of selecting one of these data spreading methods:

  • Proportional Spread - distributes a specified value among children of the consolidation proportional to existing cell values
  • Equal Spread - distributes a specified value equally across all children of a consolidation
  • Repeat Leaves - copies a specified value to the children of a consolidation
For full details on data spreading, see Overview of Data Spreading in the IBM Cognos TM1 User Guide.

To enable data spreading on rules-derived consolidated cells in Insight, you must first complete these steps in Performance Modeler.

  1. Open the Application Design pane in Performance Modeler.
  2. Double-click the application name to display the Application Design tab.
  3. Enable the Spread on Rule Derived Consolidated Cells setting and save.
  4. Deploy the application.

After successful deployment of the application, you can apply data spreading in Cognos Insight.
