Publishing TM1 Aliases in Cognos BI

Have you been thinking about publishing TM1 aliases in Cognos BI?  It is completely unintuitive, but if you want to use all those awesome aliases TM1 allows you create in your Cognos BI Package, then you must select a language on the Locales page of Framework Manager Metadata wizard. If you don’t select a language, it will publish the package with the default member name.

  1. Select dimension
  2. Select desired alias for dimension
  3. Select language
