Integrating TM1web with Cognos BI

When you have a distributed architecture for your Cognos BI install and then you want to integrate TM1web into the environment with CAM authentication, you may find you get an error message about a CAF rejection and you cannot access tm1web.

This is due to the internal cognos firewall rules and you need to edit the CAF settings within Cognos Configuration. Normally this just involves adding the tm1 adminhost name into the CAF exception rule.
