If you have a scheduled report or job in Cognos, when you change your password, you will need to log into Cognos and renew your credentials so that when the report / job next runs, it has your updated login information. To do so:
- Log into the Cognos environment where your reports / jobs are scheduled.
- Select the down arrow beside the person icon (My Area Preferences) and then select My Preferences.
- Select the Personal tab and then select “Renew the credentials”
- Press OK.
