 Good Day

We are using RTC v 5.0 and RRDi

We are looking at doing a version upgrade and have heard that RRDi is  no longer compatible with future releases, and that JRS will now be the reporting tool to be used. 
I would like to know how accurate this information is and if this is true how JRS compares with RRDi.

Thanking you in advance

Kind Regards

Hi, Glenn

Some points to add:
1) you can now download Cognos BI from your company's password advantage site since v6.0.1.
(don't need to contact support via PMR as suggested in the technote)

2) in the future version, there is a plan not to provide Cognos BI which means you only have option to use JRS

3) JRS is currently a focus for reporting and is evolved greatly version by version. So having a plan to transition from RRDI to JRS is very important for the consistency from now on and I would highly recommend to start with JRS even though you are considering to migrate RRDI reports for now.

 Hi Don

Thanks for your reply, we are currently running RTC v 5.02, what version of JRS would be compatible with this, we would like to install and start familiarizing ourself with JRS

Kind Regards

Hi, Glenn

RTC 5.2 has same version JRS available. But in 5.0.2, download seems to be a part of RRDI download hence it could be quite big, the setup has more manual procedures.(in 6.0.x, it is a part of CLM download now and you can set up via normal way as other applications)

RRDI last stable release is 5.0.2. Starting in CLM 6.x, RRDI is no longer available. If you want to continue use Cognos reports you will need to migrate from RRDI to Cognos Business Intelligence and install the ALM Cognos Connector to integrate with CLM.

Please read the links below for further information.
