Import & Upload functions using BULK APIs.
I have couple of queries regarding Import & Upload functions using BULK APIs.
For Import function to work - file should already exists in Anaplan. However, if I want to import fresh files then I need to upload the files first as per my understanding.
Now in order to upload files, Anaplan says that the file must be uploaded first using Anaplan UI. I'm not able to understand this part -
A. If I have to upload file using Anaplan UI, then I will be able to perform other functions like Import etc. using UI, so what's the need of BULK API then?
B. Anaplan document also talks about subsequent upload of that file using API - What if I wanted to upload the same file with different data. How will the API work?
Is there any concept of uploading files manually from local computer or streaming using BULK APIs (excl. Anaplan Connect). Can anyone explain me any scenario/process.
Currently, I'm using POSTMAN to test all these requests. Do I need to use any other tool to test files upload/download?
