There is some internal confusion regarding the actual contents of the credentials. There is no Cognos documentation I’ve found that explicitly states what the user credentials contain, but I’ve deduced that it contains encrypted user ID and password for each namespace the user belongs to. Thus, I’ve been telling our users there is no need to update your credentials if your password hasn’t changed (since we only have one namespace where I work). Am I correct in making that statement? I ask because our users are updating their credentials whenever they “feel” things are “not working right” and I’d like to put an end to that.
We are using 8.4.1 FP3 on Windows Server 2008.
