Delimited field extractions for cognos data

Path Finder

Trying to load some IBM Cognos data, have the inputs.conf working and data is coming across.

but my props and transforms seem to have no effect. I followed the info here: http://answers.splunk.com/answers/1048/how-do-index-tab-delimited-files and from the documentation and created the following two files in my local folder.

Props.conf:
[cognos]
REPORT-cognos=cognos-fields

transforms.conf:
[cognos-fields]
DELIMS="\t"
FIELDS="Host ID","Process ID","Time","Time Zone","Session ID","Request ID","SubRequest ID","Step ID","Thread","Component ID","Build Number","Level","Logger","Operation","Object Type","Object Path","Status","Message","Log Data"

Was missing the local.meta file for this working at search time.

Adding that in and the search returned the expected fields.

Were you able to load Cognos reports data into Splunk? By IBM Cognos data, do you mean Cognos logs data or the actual BI reports that are run in Cognos?
I am looking for ways to get the Cognos reports data displayed on Splunk dashboard. Any hints at how to go about it will be greatly helpful!
Thank you.

I was, but this is just the log data behind the dashboards used for troubleshooting when dashboards fail or users have issues.
Can you embed a html frame in a dashboard in splunk to show the cognos data? For us they are two very different systems so no need to merge. Easy option is just add a link to the cognos dashboard!
