We are looking to use the anaplan api with one of our ETL tools which allows us to setup a connection using a rest connection, however it's looking for a WADL. Is this something that exists or will we need to create this ourselves.
The company wants to try and standardise our ETL as much as possible so we want to try and use SAP Data services, to do out of teh box configuration it looks for a WADL file which I can generate but before spending the time doing it I just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed a premade one somewhere.
ETL standardization is an absolute requirement in my mind, especially if you are trying to automate the imports and exports.
You can do this with SAP Data Services but you'll need to be patient and work it out.
Anaplan will only send unordered JSON responses.
However, the actual file you download can be CSV, text, or Excel format. Just keep in mind that the file will be "chunked" into approx. 12MB each so you'll need to iterate. Again, try reading the API documentation. It's actually really well written.
