"If we had attempted this transition manually, there would have been a huge amount of work involved.
Manually finding and updating all of the appropriate user, group and role references and then re-verifying access and data level security would’ve been a far more expensive and error-prone process."

Persona IQ - Seamless Cognos Security Migration
Do you need to transition your Cognos environment from one authentication source to another? Did you realize that this can wreak havoc with your existing Cognos content and configuration? Migrating Cognos between authentication sources can result in orphaned or lost My Folders content, schedules which can no longer run, email deliveries which no longer happen, mis-configured security policies, and many other problems (see the video below).
