@YSar Custom lists do not get imported into Cognos. You can import a custom list into List Management and then run a report in Cognos to show all the items in this list. Is this what you are referring to or something else?

Hello Kevin D 

What I would like to achieve is to import a list of  specific countries and emails , and then to use this for custom bursting. I am under the impression that maybe i need to ask concur to make this upload for me , is there such a option?

Many thanks

@YSar so you want to burst out a list of countries and emails? Who do you want to burst these out to? I'm trying to see if what you need is something I can help with as far as bursting.

So please see the example below, this is the list of receivers, but this list I cannot create within the concur Cognos environment so I am wondering how I would import it

FRTG4@GMAIL

@YSar Are you going to burst to individuals? I believe you can only burst to email addresses that are tied to an SAP Concur profile. Also, what data are you wanting to burst? 

 

The built-in bursting for Cognos is based off of default approvers or I should say anyone with the Can Approve permission selected on their profile. Are the people you want to burst to approvers? Can you explain a bit further what it is you are trying to accomplish by bursting, please?

I am trying to burst to specific individuals within our organization, not approvers , not BI managers

I believe what I try to do is called custom bursting , and somehow i need to import this list
