CloudWorks - Possiblity to launch processes without being necessary to choose Datasource or Target
As Model Builder/ Data Integration specialist I would like to be allowed to create a Process in CloudWorks even it is not chosen a Datasource or Target.
CloudWorks could be very useful tool to schedule data integrations between Anaplan models.
Currently, this is not allowed and it is received the error: "Connection and Data source/Target should be specified for at least one Process step"
CloudWorks could be a very important tool in the Connected Planning integration architecture if it would allow the launch of a process when is not involved any outside Anaplan datasource ( like Amazon S3).
Why not be able to use CloudWorks in order to schedule a data exchange between a Data Hub model and its downstream models?
What do you think?
Having a way to trigger anaplan imports without user intervention would make a step further for connected planning0
It says in the last release notes that this is delivered? How? Am I missing something.
Haha..indeed very strange. The only thing delivered, as far as I know, is the possibility to launch a process...but it is mandatory that the process has a Source or Target from Amazon S3.0
@MelanieM could you please exclude this idea from "delivered ideas" in March?
It is still NOT possible to create a process in CloudWorks without being mandatory to use as Source or Target an Amazon S3 file.
It would be great if it would be possible... but, currently is not. 😞
@PhilippErkinger Thanks for pointing this out.
Or deliver it. That's also OK. 😎0
This is a good idea. In addition to triggering Anaplan to Anaplan import processes, there can be option to schedule automated triggers for Actions like Order List, Delete from List, etc.0
Thank you for your inputs. The requested functionality is now available in Production. Users can schedule a Process that does not involve any step that deals with cloud integration. Model to model imports can also be performed in CloudWorks now.0
