Cognos Data Manager Connections are used to access different types of database. Cognos Data Manager provide various types of connection provider. We can create a new connection by right click on Connections available in tree pane at Root level > Library > Connections and select Insert Connection option (Ensure that tree pane first tab is selected). A new window appear with General and Connection Details tab. In General tab we can provide alias name for the connection and a brief description about the new connection.
