How to get the model size using the API?


I'm currently using the Anaplan API with the Anaplan Client to send and receive API requests. I wanted to get the size of all the models and this is the code I am using:

set Operation=-debug -service %ServiceUrl% -auth %AuthUrl% -models

Output :

Now, the output is displayed directly in cmd. Is there any way to get the output directly as a text file instead?

I understand there is a way to get the whole output in a file then cleanup the file to get the desired output but it seems a bit much, is there any other alternative?

    @ahemantthere : all the Anaplan Connect commands that you can see on the screen can be directed to be saved in a file. It is a batch command (not Anaplan Connect command) and depends of the operating system usually using " >" character.

    As REST API: there is also the datapoint

    It returns in JSON format all the models of the default Tenant of the user and contains also the model size in the columns.

    Hope it helps


  • Hey @alexpavel,

    Thanks for the response. I saved the output of the anaplan connect command in a file and this is what I get:

    I used the '>' operator after calling Anaplan Client. Have pasted the code below:

    @echo off
    setlocal enabledelayedexpansion

    set AnaplanUser=""
    set WorkspaceId=""
    set ModelId=""
    set ServiceUrl=""
    set AuthUrl=""
    set Chunksize=1

    set Operation=-debug -service %ServiceUrl% -auth %AuthUrl% -models

    rem *** End of settings - Do not edit below this line ***

    setlocal enableextensions enabledelayedexpansion || exit /b 1
    cd %~dp0
    if not %AnaplanUser% == "" set Credentials=-user %AnaplanUser%
    set Command=..\..\..\AnaplanClient.bat %Credentials% %Operation%

    cmd /c %Command% > dump.txt


    I am not using curl as while authenticating, it is giving me as unauthorized user even though I am an integration admin, hence I would like to go with the Anaplan Connect approach, but kindly suggest me if there is another way, or if curl is the way to go.
