With MetaLineage, you can automate the lot. Your lineage, your reports specifications,
your Framework Manager models – you can have reports on all of it by the end of the day. With just
the click of a button.
So no more mind-numbing, error-prone copy-pasting. No need to manually open and
close every... single... query subject... and... every... single... data item... One by one. And
no need for Microsoft Word or Excel at all.
No matter how long you’re currently spending on your documentation, MetaLineage
can do it in a day. Or less. So it will cut hundreds – possibly even thousands – of hours from your project
timeline, and slash your project costs.
“I have meeting tomorrow with the project sponsor to discuss the cost of adding
a column to 5 database tables and to all the Cognos reports that references those
But first, I need to know how many reports will be impacted so that I can plan my project
schedule and allocate resources to remediation the changes.“
Get an overview of your FM models object's properties such as query subjects, query items, relationships, calculations,
filters, packages, parameter maps and data sources.
Get an overview of the public folder with hyperlinks

Gives you a Lineage extract in excel format to shows you the breakdown of every
data items contained in all the reports in your content store.
“It was a light-blue-touchpaper-and-stand-clear moment.
Seventy models, a thousand-odd reports and about an hour later,
the process of documenting the entire Cognos FM/RS reporting
environment was complete. I was able to produce a single flat
table containing the attributes needed to describe this
complex reporting environment and load the lot into a database to
be queried, pivoted, filtered and shared.“
