Once the Cognos application is instrumented with the APM Java Agent, the application UI behaves very differently. New pop-ups appearing now while using it. These never appeared before.
Cognos 10.2 instrumented by 10.x APM Agent
This is caused by a problem with HTTPServletTracing interfering with the UI.
To disable HTTPServletTracing:
1. Edit the file "toggles-typical.pbd" (or "toggles-typical-NoRedef.pbd" if the noRedef version of the agent is being used)
2. Change the line
3. Save the file, and restart the application.
