Anaplan Connect Upload Error

Hi, This is the first time I am using Anaplan connect. While creating the script and looking at the documents, i drafted a script that allowed me to first upload, import thru an action followed by lastly a process.

I have apparently uploaded the file successfully however I am met with problems with my action that imports the file into a list.

To add on the specific error shown is: errorMessage - The uploaded file is no longer available; please upload the file again. In addition, moving to my model, if i run the action manually it now faced the same problem, which it did not just minutes ago. Further if I manually do the import by selecting the exact file, it shows me: an internal error occurred in some instances. 


From the above, I would conclude that the import had an error, however from the cmd prompt, the import seemed fine


Below is the script



@Echo off
rem For Windows OS : This example explains the usage of basic Authentication with Anaplan Connect.
rem It also loads a source text file and runs an Anaplan import into a module.
rem For details of how to configure this script visit


set AnaplanUser="...:..."
set WorkspaceId="..."
set ModelId="..."
set ServiceUrl=""
set AuthUrl=""
set FileName="123.csv"
set FilePath="C:\Users\123.csv"
set ImportName="test import"
set DumpName="Client Location for Dumping the Errored data from Import"
set Chunksize=1
set Process = "Test Anaplan Connect"
set Operation=-debug -service %ServiceUrl% -auth %AuthUrl% -workspace %WorkspaceId% -model %ModelId% -chunksize %Chunksize% -file %FileName% -put %FilePath% -import %ImportName% -execute -process %Process% -execute -output %DumpName%


rem *** End of settings - Do not edit below this line ***

setlocal enableextensions enabledelayedexpansion || exit /b 1
cd %~dp0
if not %AnaplanUser% == "" set Credentials=-user %AnaplanUser%
set Command=.\AnaplanClient.bat %Credentials% %Operation%
@Echo %Command%
cmd /c %Command%


Thank you in advance for the help.

You scripts look fine, there is no issue.


The error you are getting is "Upload file no longer available". To fix this, load the file into the import data source and set the Default file option to ADMIN only so that the file will be available always in Anaplan.


NOTE: The file name should be the same as the file name present in Anaplan, rename the file accordingly.(Ex: Distribution+Center+Capacity)


After you done this part, run or edit the action and validate whether you are able to see the file now.

you are getting this error because while creating this action the default file format was set to "Private", the private file will be available only for next 48 hrs.

Re: Anaplan Connect Upload Error

Hi there,


Just looking at the response provided.


If you are using ANAPLAN CONNECT, there is no way to reselect the file, or indeed when you set up the import after running a process in Anaplan Connect, there is no way to Set Default File to Admin?


The example given shows a CSV, but again if you are using Anaplan Connect, the Import is already present. Is there a setting in Anaplan Connect in the script, to tell Anaplan the Default File is Admin and not private?


Kind Regards,

Hey there @gavina,

Late reply but if you refer to Anapedia, it is apparently stated that setting default files via API is not possible.

Yours Sincerely,
