Re: API

Hi @UMAMAHESH123,

 

API - Application Programming Interface

 

Which means, API acts as a middleware(Interface) between source(CSV, ORACLE, SALES FORCE, WORK FORCE etc) and Targets(ANAPLAN, here in our case).

 

Purpose of the API is,

we can easily get data from the various source system

We can schedule our task at some time intervals.

Re: API

@UMAMAHESH123 

 

Question 1: API (Application Programming Interface), in layman terms is an intermediate software that allows two applications to talk to each other. This definition holds true even in Anaplan

 

Question 2: Are you asking about API in general? How do we build/configure APIs? Or how does API help us in data integration with Anaplan?
