Continuously polling an operational model using Rest API
I have been requested by a client to continuously poll Anaplan Operational Model ( every 1 min) to EXPORT data from a module . Module is relatively small so about 20 rows and 2 cols .
Right of the bat this doesn't sound like a great idea to me due to potential lock up of the model etc. therefore i wrote a Python script to test it out .
Script executes every 1 min and downloads the required data using Rest API. It simulates all the steps that a middle-ware like MULE will go through i.e auth , get id's , run exports , download data etc. for every run .
To my surprise i dont see any degradation or slowness in the model . Also i dont see the Blue pop up which happens due to export or import . Script has been tested and it works confirmed !!!!. Script has been running for a day every min in production model where users would go in and do about their normal day to day stuff. I have confirmed with users and no one noticed or reported any slowness or performance issues .
Question: Is anyone polling operational model with such frequency ? Am i missing anything ?
Personally i dont like this however i dont see any impacts to backup my unlikeness if that makes sense
