Yes, there are two ways of doing this.

First - Embed a common userid/password in the catalog or the odbc connection thereby not requiring a userid/password. However, note that using this method that all users will use the same userid/password and therefore any database security will not be in effect. Also note that shared temporary space may be at risk if you have a large number of users running a SQL query at the exact same time.

Second - Using Cognos Access Manager you can setup userid/passwords for all of your users (as appropriate) and then when the user drill's through to the report it will pass the userid/password for them. This solution ensure database security is respected and that the temporary table spaces are more optimally managed.
