Automating Import from csv file

Hello experts, 

 

We are looking at scheduled import to Anaplan through custom integration and I have a question around that. 

Context: There will be a csv file provided on a server periodically and the import needs to be automated.

1. I read that it it is only once I manually import a file to Anaplan,  that there can be an upload through the API. 

Should I make the API request to upload prior to run the import action each time in my script?

Or, should a request to upload just the first time suffice? 

 

Thanks,

Ranjani

Re: Automating Import from csv file

you need to load the file manually once so the ACTION and FILE can be set up.

then the API, or indirectly any tool that uses the API (Anaplan Connect, and other connectors) can upload the FILE and call the ACTION.
