COGNOS REPORT- Can the reports can be published to any FTP locations.

Is there a way to send the Cognos report to FTP location rather than emailing the cognos report as an attachment.

Currently we are sending the Report via email which customer need to download and put it in a location to process it further. So they are asking is there any way we can drop the report to a FTP location.

    Hi, this seems to be a query for support team rather than a product enhancement. Could you please reach out to support team with this question? Here are some links that may be helpful, but please reach out to support to understand if this can be supported in your cognos version/cognos deployment.
