Anaplan colnnect: action not found


 We use Anaplan Connect 1.4.2 to automaticly do some imports (SQL/Anaplan) and lauch some actions (imports between two Anaplan modules) every night.


 We have no problem with SQL/Anaplan imports, but this process doesn't work for actions between 2 modules. This message appears when the system tries to do an action:


 2020-03-20 11:17:20 INFO [c.a.client.Service :83 ] 400 |-- Initializing Service...
2020-03-20 11:17:20 INFO [bstractAuthenticator:46 ] 400 |-- Authenticating via Certificate...
2020-03-20 11:17:22 ERROR [c.a.client.Program :898 ] 400 |-- Action "1. Prevision du Budget sur from INEXPLAN / 1. LOAD Previsio" not found in workspace 8a81b09d575246a50157ddfb2abe3e9d, model 0D0ABF514B7F4FB498ADBC74533C8295
2020-03-20 11:17:22 ERROR [c.a.client.Program :252 ] 400 |-- An import, export, action or process must be specified before -execute
2020-03-20 11:17:22 INFO [c.a.client.Program :775 ] 400 |-- No dump file is available.


 I have checked the name of the action and the workspace and model IDs.


 For information, you will find below the .bat program file:


@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.

set WorkspaceId=%workspace_id%

set ModelId=%model_id_ine%

set ServiceUrl=""

set AuthUrl=""


rem set FilePath="FilePath on the Client"-put %FilePath%

rem set ImportName="1. Prevision Budget Portefeuille"

set ImportName="Test action from Inexplan II / 3. Balance Generale - New"

set DumpName="%dir_erreur%Errors_INE_BudgetMissionFromINEXPLAN.txt"

set Chunksize=1

set CertPath=%CertPath%

set PrivateKey=%PrivateKey%


set Operation=-debug -service %ServiceUrl% -auth %AuthUrl% -workspace %WorkspaceId% -model %ModelId% -chunksize %Chunksize% -loadclass "net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver" -action %ImportName% -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=-certificate %CertPath% -privatekey %PrivateKey%%

set Command=C:\anaplan-connect\AnaplanClient.bat %Credentials%  %Operation%

@Echo %Command%

cmd /c %Command%


Has anyone else faced this kind of issue? Any pointers on troubleshooting this error would be greatly appreciated.

Try replacing "action" with "Import"


set Operation=-debug -service %ServiceUrl% -auth %AuthUrl% -workspace %WorkspaceId% -model %ModelId% -chunksize %Chunksize% -loadclass "net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver" -action %ImportName% -execute -output %DumpName%


set Operation=-debug -service %ServiceUrl% -auth %AuthUrl% -workspace %WorkspaceId% -model %ModelId% -chunksize %Chunksize% -loadclass "net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver" Import %ImportName% -execute -output %DumpName%
