For those who participated in these sessions at Anaplan Live! 2022, I'm including additional resources links in the below comments based on questions that were asked.0
One of the questions we received was best practices for a "keep alive" script. Here is an article on the topic and a couple of Ideas posted to the Idea Exchange:
We received a number of questions about the Audit capabilities. Notably, here is a list of user activity events tracked by the Audit API: https://help.anaplan.com/ef0ac1f3-fd1d-4dc2-a205-2ae4f5b22a7d-Tracked-user-activity-events0
We received some questions about documentation around user access controls. Here are some links that may be useful:
When we discussed ALM, someone shared a caution around deploying from DEV to PROD and finding that a lot of the production data and user attributes were not migration. Here is a relevant excerpt from our documentation on Model Data:
Production data is operational data that changes often during day-to-day business operations, including:
- Values of cells in modules
- The contents of production lists and the values of any associated properties
- The configuration of imports and import data source (IDS) definitions marked as production data
- Production users
- Workflow states
Structural Information Reference provides a complete list of a model's structural information, and any exceptions treated as production data.0
Someone had a product capability question around showing which actions are currently being used on NUX pages. This is being tracked by the below Idea on our Idea Exchange. Please give it a kudo and subscribe if you are interested!
We talked briefly in the AM session about having a checklist for a model release to make sure some of the areas and access controls are ready for deployment. In addition to The Anaplan Way Guide (linked above), here are a couple additional resources on the topic:0
