Cognos Report showing Credit Card Number

Does anyone know if you can see the full credit card number within the Cognos reporting module?  WE are getting ready to implement an AMEX card feed into Concur but our local finance team needs to see the full expense amounts per credit card number from concur so they can allocate the amounts to the card and to ensure there is a 100% accuracy, full card numbers are needed

Re: Cognos Report showing Credit Card Number

Thomas,

Cognos will not show the full credit card number. I believe for security reasons. In fact, in my 11 years at SAP Concur, the only time I have ever seen a full credit card number for a corporate card is when I was entering my card on my travel profile. After that, only the last 4 digits are accessible. Cognos does have an option for Last Four Account Digits to report on. 

 

I don't believe you can have corporate cards with the same last 4 digits, so this should still be good enough to uniquely identify the employee and the amounts per card.

Re: Cognos Report showing Credit Card Number

Accounting department should rely on unique credit card transaction ID available in credit card statement and credit card feed and not credit card number itself. I'm sure internal controls, Concur and Amex wouldn't be happy if credit card numbers gets leaked, so be very very careful with exposing this data in any report.
