    ================Working Script=================================


    @Echo off
    rem This example loads a source text file and runs an Anaplan import into a module.
    rem For details of how to configure this script see doc\Anaplan Connect User Guide.doc

    set AnaplanUser="username:password"
    set WorkspaceId="Type WorkspaceID"
    set ModelId="Type ModelID"
    set DumpName="Client Location for Dumping the Errored data from Import"
    set Chunksize=1

    for %%F in (E:\anaplan\filename_*.csv) do set filename=%%F
    echo %filename%
    set Operation==-file "File_Name.csv" -put "%filename%"
    set Operation=-service "" -auth "" -file "File_Name.csv" -put "%filename%" -process "ProcessName" -execute -output "C:\Desktop\Archive\folderName"

    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% -workspace %WorkspaceId% -model %ModelId% %Operation%
    @Echo %Command%
    cmd /c %Command%

    move E:\anaplan\filename_*.csv "C:\Desktop\Archive\"

    Haven't done any such thing in the past. I am not even certain if that is the possibility in Integration activities as Anaplan Connect will look for the same file in the server. I might be wrong here but let's see what others have to say. @ben_speight can you help here.

    just a thought, what if you write script to rename file from Import_File_Name_30062020_0930.csv to Import_File_Name.csv in the same path before Anaplan connect script kicks in. 


    mv src_name dest_name 

  • If you specify a server file using -file, the server file name is completely independent of the local file name (if you don't, the server file defaults to the local file name). If you use a YYYYMMDD format for the name, it is easier to sort them and find the most recent.

    Yes that can also work, in the end Anaplan Connect will look for a fixed name
