Renewing Your Credentials in Cognos

Modified on: Tue, Jul 23, 2019 at 11:25 AM


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.
