Tip: Setting the default skin


Quick tip - I've defined a new skin for IBM Cognos 8.4 and want to set it as the default for all new users:

Browse to Cognos Administration >Security>Users, Groups and Roles, and click into the "Cognos" directory. Now set this in the "Edit Default User" settings (the icon is in the upper right corner).

Great tip - Has this changed since 8.3?

Still in the same place. Just make sure when you go into the Cognos directory do not choose a user, group or role. Select the "Edit Default User" icon (second from the right next to the search icon - at top). It looks like a business card. On the next window choose Preferences and then select the style (skin).
