Enabling Single-Sign-On on WebSphere Portal in IBM Cognos ReportNet 3 Cognos Proprietary Information Abstract This document provides step-by-step instructions on how to enable Single Signon(SSO) with Cognos Portal Services (CPS) in IBM WebSphere Portal 5.1. Although this document was written specifically for configuring SSO between WebSphere Portal 5.1 and IBM Cognos ReportNet 1.1 MR1+, some of the same principles apply to previous versions of both WebSphere and IBM Cognos. As a prerequisite, it is assumed that the reader has successfully imported the Cognos portlets. Refer to the document on “Installing Cognos Portlets In WebSphere Portal” for more information on how to import the Cognos portlets.
