Hi @winstonquan, if you are looking to create custom integration by directly invoking REST APIs, please wait for Anaplan to release the v2.0 API & user guide. If you are interested in Anaplan Connect v.14, you can use it without needing to refer to the API guide. Thanks.
I have been able to get a certifcate and created a key_store file and was able to run imports into Anaplan using AC1.4. However, just wondering, is there a way to not show the key_store password in the batch file? The password is visible in plain text.
Hi @UpaliW, the keystore alias & password must be saved in the script file. This allows AC 1.4 to extract the Private Key & Public Certificate. Alias & password are standard features on JAVA keystores.
Customer must install AC 1.4 & its Integration scripts on a secure server & limit access to that server.
Hi @UpaliW, Yes, with Basic Auth, password needs to be reset every 3 months. Users can avoid this by moving to CA Certificates for Auth.
I have about 20 connect scripts, that run daily (overnight), if i "Switch to Basic Authentication", i have to have my password visible in all these scripts, and also have to update them every time my password expires, which could cause stoppages or issues in process, and was the reason i changed to certificates in the first place.
I looked at the "Upgrade to the latest API clients" but can find nothing on the website to explain things, and as far as i can see nobody on site has administration app access.
Any advice please
Hi @DeveloperCYT, we are planning to release an updated Anaplan Connect (AC) v1.4 in the near term. This provides support for CA certificates. You can migrate your AC 1.3.x.x integration scripts to AC 1.4 at your convenience. Please watch the Anaplan product releases page.
With the changes to the Anaplan generated certificates, a number of customers have asked;
Many thanks for your help
to start with, could you list examples of valid Certificates? I don't mean the root authorities, but the actual certificate product? There seems to be quite big price spread, what should be considered when buying?
You can begin by contacting your IT or Security Operations organization to determine if your company already has an existing relationship with a CA or intermediary CA.
As you noted, there are many categories of certificates that a CA offers(for example: SAN certificates, wildcard certificates, code-signing certificates, and others). You should request a client certificate only. The process for procuring the certificate may take a few weeks for some validation that the CA must perform. We recommend you allow time for the procurement process. Once the CA issues the certificate file, follow their documented steps for making this file available in your environment.
