Cognos Framework Manager: Testing Queries

As a developer you are probably aware of the ‘Test’ query functionality in Framework Manager, whereby you can see a sample of your Query Subject output. However did you know that you can test items from multiple queries?

When in Framework Manager, click on the items from each Query Subject that you want to see a sample of.

Right click and then select ‘Test’.

framework 2

Note: Your Framework Model does need to have joins between these tables for this to run, otherwise you will get an error.
