Skipping failed builds
After your first build, sometimes you might encounter an unsuccessful build. To ensure that all the jobs after an unsuccessful build complete successfully, you can enable the Skip history build failures option.
Resetting the Data Warehouse database or Reporting server
You can delete the contents of the Data Warehouse data marts and delete all configured connectors. You might want to do this if an installation or upgrade did not complete successfully and it left the Data Warehouse database in an intermediate state. You can also delete only the Inventory data model or the Cognos Reporting data model.
Accessing MySQL using the command-line interface
In addition to accessing Data Warehouse data elements through the report authoring tools, you can obtain access to Data Warehouse data elements directly by connecting as a MySQL user. You might want to connect as a MySQL user to use the data elements in your own applications.
