Data and Reports 

Banner Data and Reports


iReport will continue to be available as UCR's report distribution and storage system. There will be new repositories, categories, and reports available for iReport users. View the list of available repositories, categories, and reports in iReport. 

Student Data Query System (SDQS)

SDQS will continue to be available during and after the Banner implementation for departmental and college personnel, faculty, and staff directly involved in student academic advising.

SDQS "Criteria" and "Columns" tabs will be updated to accomodate changes in Banner data but will retain all of the current functionality as a secure, intuitive web interface that provides access to a query tool enabling users to send plain text targeted email communication to students on a variety of academic information.

Banner Cognos

UCR is using IBM Cognos to connect to the Banner Operationa Data Store, which refreshes nightly. Banner ODS is data from the Banner administrative system organized into a simplified format where users can execute operational and adhoc reports. 


For go-live, access to Banner Cognos / ODS will be granted based on your role in Banner.

Staff and faculty who do not have access to Banner may also request access to Banner Cognos by submitting a Banner System Access request. Check "Banner Cognos" in the "Select Areas and/or Systems" section and choose the Banner Cognos Report Categories you need. 

Banner Cognos Categories

Access is granted based on a combination of job responsibilities, your organization, and/or your department.

View the list of categories and reports available in Banner Cognos.


Review the Banner Cognos Training document for information on how to connect to the test and production system and how to execute operational and adhoc reports.

If you would like hands-on training, email bannertraining@ucr.edu and we will schedule a time with you after October 21. If there is enough interest, we will schedule labs in November.
