Get a user stamp for approvals

edited April 2023 in User Experience

Hello Anaplanners,

I have a dashboard that allows users to approve or reject requests. I would like the User name to be stamped somewhere (probably a line item) once they choose to approve / reject.

Example: Cost Center 100 is requesting 1 more Employee for Job: Developer. It needs approval from Manager, HR, and Finance. As each of them click the box, I want the specific user to be stamped and also be visible in UX.

Any suggestions?

    To get the date there are many process mentioned in the site below.

    For user id you could use the below code.

    import requests

    # Set the Anaplan API credentials and endpoint
    base_url = ""
    workspace_id = "Your Anaplan Workspace ID"
    model_id = "Your Anaplan Model ID"
    user_name = "Your Anaplan User Name"
    password = "Your Anaplan Password"

    # Authenticate and get an access token
    auth_url = f"{base_url}/auth/oauth/token"
    auth_payload = {
        "grant_type": "password",
        "username": user_name,
        "password": password
    auth_response =, data=auth_payload)
    access_token = auth_response.json()["access_token"]

    # Make a GET request to the Users API endpoint
    users_url = f"{base_url}/1/3/workspaces/{workspace_id}/models/{model_id}/users"
    headers = {
        "Authorization": f"AnaplanAuthToken {access_token}"
    response = requests.get(users_url, headers=headers)

    # Extract the user ID from the response
    users = response.json()["users"]
    user_id = None
    for user in users:
        if user["name"] == user_name:
            user_id = user["id"]

    print(f"The user ID is {user_id}")

    for getting other id's required in the code, you can refer to the
