Transactional API For Meta Data missing information


I am building a workspace audit model where I want to extract all information about models, modules etc.  When extracting the data some fields are only partially populated.  For Example:


Model Information - The Size is not always populated

Module Information - The Module id is not always populated


Has anyone else experienced this and if so is there a workaround?


  • Hello @TimWard70,

    Yes, there are workarounds to handle partially populated fields when extracting data from Anaplan. Here are a few suggestions:

    1. Use conditional statements: Check if the field is populated before extracting the data. If it is not populated, you can assign a default value or leave it blank.
    2. Use the Anaplan API: Instead of relying on the Anaplan user interface for data extraction, you can use the Anaplan API to retrieve the information. The API provides more flexibility in handling data extraction and allows you to specify the fields you want to retrieve.
    3. Use data validation rules: Set up data validation rules in Anaplan to ensure that required fields are always populated. This will help maintain data integrity and prevent partially populated fields.
    4. Contact Anaplan support: If you are experiencing issues with specific fields not being populated consistently, it is recommended to reach out to Anaplan support for assistance. They can help troubleshoot the issue and provide guidance on how to handle partially populated fields.

    Remember to consider the specific requirements and limitations of your Anaplan workspace when implementing these workarounds.
