Querying Live Guardium Data with Cognos (Without the CSV Exports)

by John Haldeman, Security Practice Lead

This post is all about how to configure Cognos to query Guardium DAM data directly on the appliance. That is without exporting the data to CSV first and then loading it into a database that Cognos can access. How it works is by using a web service that accesses the Guardium REST API and then exposes the resulting Guardium data in an XML format that Cognos accepts. Cognos queries the web service and displays the data.
