Systematic Updating of View Name/ID used in Import


This may be obvious to others, but I have found that when I rename a view in a source model, it breaks the Import in the destination. Unlike lists/modules do views not have corresponding IDs to represent them? I think most if not all elements in Anaplan should be linked by a unique identifier that should not be broken when something is renamed.

My idea is then to make sure views have corresponding IDs that do not break when their name is changed/updated.

  • Agreed, but isnt it more like a bug to fix rather than a feature ?

    This is one of the few things that makes anaplan integration features weak (like easily breakable and prone to generate regressions) while they are completely key to the whole experience

    I can confirm btw that saved views have their own ids so changing the name shouldnt break the underlying actions.
