Get the External Dispatcher URI

Get the External Dispatcher URI

To extract metadata from Cognos Content Manager, get the external dispatcher URI. The URI is required to configure the Cognos Content Manager resource in Metadata Manager. The value corresponds to one of the dispatchers in the Cognos Content Manager installation. Verify the URI in the Cognos Content Manager configuration\cogstartup.xml file.
The URI is similar to the following URL:
http://localhost:9300/p2pd/servlet/dispatch
The following example shows an excerpt from cogstartup.xml:
<crn:parameter name=”sdk”> <crn:value xsi:type=”xsd”anyURI”>http://localhost:9300/p2pd/servlet/dispatch</crn:value> </crn:parameter>
Use the following rules and guidelines for the external dispatcher URI:
  • You can also find the dispatcher URL under Environment in the Cognos client.
  • Use the actual machine name or an IP address for the server name, not localhost.
  • The https:// prefix for the URI indicates SSL is required.
  • The Cognos server must support chunking and attachments for large volumes of data. To verify this requirement, contact the Cognos administrator.
  • If Metadata Manager and Cognos Content Manager are separated by an intermediary server like a load balancer or proxy, use the host and port number of the intermediary in the external dispatcher URI.
