Update (May 31, 2019)
Please see the Anaplan-Generated Certificates to Expire at the End of 2019 blog for more information.
Based on customer feedback and to allow admins additional time to transition to new integration clients, Anaplan will be issuing a new Anaplan certificate on December 8, 2018. The current Anaplan certificate will stop working on December 8. You will need to take action based on your integration client and authentication.

Just wondering, if we revert back to Basic Authentication, can we store the username and password encrypted in a file and then pass the encrypted strings to Anaplan Connect, if so how it that done? I would also want to know, will these integration accounts have to change their passwords according to the current poilicies? If so, then Basic Authentication doesn't seem like a viable option for customers that do not have any CA based setup in place.
Hi Upali, with Basic Auth, user name & password are saved in the Anaplan Connect integration batch file. We cannot encrypt the user name & password. If client is SSO enabled, they must identify an integration user ID & set it up as an Exception user.

One more thing, if the Integration user is set as an exception user and we are going to use Basic Authentication. Will we need to change the password from time to time?
We’re currently using Anaplan Connect as our integration into Anaplan, however are undertaking areas of work to move to the HTTP API.
Is there any changes we have to do to use the CA-signed certificate for API authentication, or is it the same as current? I.e. convert .cer to .pem and base64 encode with a username to send as an auth header to the API?
Hi @winstonquan, I believe your query is about Anaplan Connect (AC) v1.4 availability. We released it on yesterday, Sep 21st. Please refer to Anaplan blog posts. You can download AC v1.4 from Anaplan Community and start building integrations with CA certificates.
