Cognos Security & Folder Structure

SJU uses Groups to set security for users, packages, and folders:

  • Groups have access to specific folders and packages
  • Users are assigned to groups

Report security is inherited from the parent group or package. A user will have access to the reports in a folder if they have access to the folder itself.

Users accessing student, finance, or HR data will additionally require an ODS account, and fine-grained access (FGA) to be configured. Finance and HR FGA is copied overnight from Banner. Student FGA is configured separately.

Consumer security groups are listed below. For full consumer and writer security on folders and packages, view the attached pdf. Only users who have been through training and have been appropriated a report writer license should be assigned to writer groups (USR_W_).
