Add Master Detail Relationship for Chart Visualizations

The Master detail relationships option found under DATA for Cognos analytics Chart visualization is not available for 11.1R2.The feature is available in CA 11.0.9 version.The feature is needed,so that we can generate chart based on a Master query which will filter the detail chart and produce different outputs for each data member of the Master Query.

This is a very needed and critical component needed for Cognos Reporting and we cannot perform any upgrades with important features that are missing in the latest version.

Why is it useful?
Who would benefit from this IDEA? Business
How should it work?

The feature is missing in Cognos 11.1R2 onwards and the workaround is to export report spec from an older version and import it in the new version.This cannot be implemented when we upgrade our environments to latest version.

The other option is to use legacy visualization,but the look and feel for the legacy visualizations don't blend well with other visualizations in the latest version and cannot be pursued.

    All the new 11.1 visualizations does not have an entry point for Master Detail sectioning (DATA part). This is very CRITICAL because it prevent all the new 11.1 visualizations to be used with BURSTing and dynamic PAGINATION. 
    This is most ennoying because that Master Détail feature exists for 11.0 and 10.x visualizations.
    Please correct this very disavantaging and  painful missing feature as soon as possible because it prevents using the new 11.1 vizs within Burst and/or Paginated reports.
    Thank you.
