Setting up IBM Cognos Metrics to work with IBM Connections

Install and configure your IBM® Cognos® Metrics environment to work with IBM Connections.

Important: As IBM has made an alternative software program (Elasticsearch Metrics) available for the Metrics feature used within IBM Connections 6, the Connections IFR1 interim release has removed Cognos Business Intelligence 10.2.2 as a supporting program from the Connections License.
