All users with authorization to run KFS Inquiries can now run a Business Intelligence (BI) Cognos Account Status Report (ASR) for any accounts to which they have access. A person needs to be assigned Role 131186 — General Ledger Viewer — to run BI-Cognos ASRs.
Visit Checking a Kuali Profile to learn how to use the KFS Person Lookup feature to verify whether a Kuali user has been assigned the General Ledger Viewer role.

Reminder: Bear in mind that users can access real time financial data with KFS Inquiries, whereas BI-Cognos reports are generated using data that is at least 24 hours old.
