Anaplan Connect 1.4.4 Export Action Error (Certificate Authentication)



I am trying to run an export action using Certificate Authentication but i am getting an error. 

Below is my script and the error, any help would be appreciated! 

My script is: 

@Echo off
rem set CertPath="C:\certs\cert.pem"
set KeyStorePath="C:\certs\AC1.4_keystore.jks"
set KeyStorePass="keystorepass"
set KeyStoreAlias="keystorealias"
set WorkspaceId="WorkspaceId"
set ModelID="ModelId"
set Operation=-service "" -auth "" -export "Workspace Usage - Size.csv" -execute -get "C:\Users\anjana.menon\Downloads\Workspace Usage - Export.csv"
rem *** End of settings - Do not edit below this line ***
setlocal enableextensions enabledelayedexpansion || exit /b 1
cd %~dp0
set Credentials=-certificate %CertPath% -keystore %KeyStorePath% -keystorepass %KeyStorePass% -keystorealias %KeyStoreAlias%
set Command=.\AnaplanClient.bat %Credentials% -workspace %WorkspaceId% -model %ModelId% %Operation%
@Echo %Command%
cmd /c %Command%
While running the script, I am getting the following Error:
Absolute path to JAVA 8 or Java 11 or OpenJDK8 executable not provided. Will attempt to figure out path from JAVA_HOME or Windows registry...

you have commented the CA path:


Remove the "rem"

Thank you for your comment. 

The .pem certificate path is not mandatory in this case. That is why i have added rem before this line. 

Can you give me any other feedback for removing this error message.

why is it not mandatory? 


did you replace the values of the variables?





 @ben_speight Can you please help

Remove "-certificate %CertPath%" from the line that sets the Credentials variable.

If CertPath is unset (or empty even) then it will expand to an empty string and the next (flag) argument will be used as the certificate path, and after that the program knows something is wrong and bails out.

Hi Ben,

Thank you for the reply.

In my original script "-certificate %CertPath%" was already removed.It was not removed it from this script.Sorry for the mistake.
