DataStage® Release: 8x
Job Type: Parallel
OS: Unix
Additional info: how to limit list returned to Cognos user?
Is there any way to customize the Cognos lookup to the glossary to limit it to a search for the exact report term? Right now it returns a list of any term that has any word from the report term name. So if I am doing a right-click glossary look up on 'Employee Start Date' - I'll get a long list of every term that contains Employee or Start or Date. Yes, Employee Start Date is in that list - but it should be at the top of the list or *ideally* the term immediately opened. I know about the option to write my own widget with REST API but am looking instead if there is any option to be set on the configuration within Cognos or BG that if an exact match is found - to use that. If not - show the other display of all items with partial matches.

Any ideas?

I haven't seen any way to make changes to the methodology of the search using the "built in" method.

Nor am I aware of any, despite pressure from my customers.

I did get a suggestion from IBM that I haven't been able to test yet. Please see my other post in the Metadata Management forum.
