Action Button to Trigger Outbound Requests (GET, POST etc.)


It would be great to have a button on new ux available that could be configured to send an outbound request to an external endpoint (GET, POST etc.), for now even an empty request could be helpful, but bonus points for allowing a configurable payload within Anaplan. This would allow us to seamlessly execute external parts of a workflow without having a user have to click on a web-service link which launches an unnecessary browser window. Use cases would be for users to be able to trigger ETLs that import data from external source into model, update an ML model with inputs from new ux dashboard etc.

  • Totally second this, having an action making it possible to make apis call to populate / update or even operate with other micro services is a must to move anaplan to enterprise level solution
