Invoking Informatica jobs from within Anaplan on a button click
We have a bunch of Informatica Integration jobs that receive data from other systems like Salesforce and generate csv files to be loaded into Anaplan. We use Anplan Connect (Anaplan_Client.bat) to invoke the actions to load the files.
These jobs are scheduled via informatica and few of them are through Windows Scheduler.
We are looking at the possibility of being able to trigger these jobs from within Anaplan, like a Initiate button on the dashboard. Informatica can publish their jobs and provide an API that can be executed externally or we can have a powershell or Python script to invoke the informatica job. Is there a way of invoking this job/api or the script from within Anaplan?
I have seen the below post in Anaplan Community
However, we are not clear where the TRUE/FALSE file generated by the export action is being downloaded to. Is there a way of saving the export file to a network drive without changing Chrome settings. We would like business users to be able to click the button on the dashboard to invoke the job. From my understanding, files for export actions gets downloaded to the local drive and that’s not very helpful here.
Please let us know if there is a way to achieve either of the below from within Anaplan at the click of a button on Anaplan dashboard:
- Invoke a published api from informatica
- Invoke a PowerShell Script from within Anaplan
