Error - Invalid due to change in data source

Hello Everyone,

Can anyone advise ?

I am using Cognos Now 4.6 appliance.

I have created a basic report that feeds from a view. The report works ok but when I create a watchpoint on the report and go back to the report itself - I get the message “invalid due to change in datasource”.

I then re-edit the data source and keep clicking through till the end, but the message wont go away.

I have also disabled and re-enabled the data stream and that is ok as the data is showing in the view. This used to work, but stopped working all of a sudden !

Any suggestions ?

hi,

i do not use Cognos NOW! a lot but i found this:

Invalid due to change in data source
The dashboard object is referencing a column that is no longer in the source. Edit the object to correct the reference.

Note: This requires Edit permission on the object.

good luck

Thanks for the response !

This problem was caused by enabling one of the logs in the workbench. The logs that I enabled had a knock on effect on everything else in the system.

Changing the log back to it’s original setting has resolved this problem.
