I stood up a report server hosting Cognos Analytics 11.1.6. I can access the analytics web interface and there’s an option to create data server connections. If I access the administration console there’s an option to create datasource connections. Both provide the ability to connect to various databases but I am can’t find anything in the IBM documentation explaining the differences between the two options.
If somebody can clear this up and explain where/if one option should be used over the other, and/or the major differences I would greatly appreciate it!
