Access to IBM Cognos Connection entries associated with data sources secured against multiple namespaces Data sources in IBM Cognos software can be secured against multiple namespaces. In some environments, the namespace used to secure the data source is not the primary namespace used for access to IBM Cognos Connection. When users try to access an entry that is associated with a data source secured against multiple namespaces, they must be logged on to all of the required namespaces. When single signon (SSO) is enabled, users are automatically logged on to the namespace. This functionality applies to IBM Cognos Viewer only.
