Re: Anaplan generated Certificates to expire Dec 10, 2018

Hi,

 

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.

Thanks Chanveer...

 

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, please refer to https://anaplanauthentication.docs.apiary.io/# for mechanism for API authentication using CA certificates. We will release the v2.0 Integration APIs in near-term and you should find more information in the updated API user guide.

Thanks for this - do we have a hard date for the release or an initial view of the documentation?

A 2 month deprecation timeline for such an important area is quick short for a enterprise application.

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.

Re: Anaplan generated Certificates to expire Dec 10, 2018

Hi Chanaveer, are we able to start connecting to the v2.0 HTTP APIs now given that v1.4 of Anaplan Connect is being distributed for customers and ready to use in production environments?

If so, is there any documentation around the v2.0 HTTP APIs available now?
