Cause

Currently Esri Maps for IBM Cognos does not support a join between an integer map service field and an IBM Cognos field.

Workaround

Add a new field to the map service formatted as a string and populate it with integer values. ID values should always be in string format; integers should only be used if some sort of arithmetic operation is to be performed on the field.
