Does EMAIL ADDRESS Parameter is Mandatory to pass while Generation of CSR via Key store?

Dear Team , 

 

We are looking for CA from Authority while working on Script for Anaplan Connect. My Question here is Does we Need to Pass Email Address as as command/Parameter while generation CSR via key store? 

 

Or email address is option , even if CSR does not have Email Address details will not be a problem to get certificate from CA and on its working functionality?

 

Kindly Advice , would appreciate your helpful support.

 

Warm Regards

SD

That's the great thing about using CA certificates. You don't use an email if you properly set it up. The Operation command is supplemented with a Credentials command that uses the certificate path instead of your email. Highly recommend you download the Anaplan Connect 1.4.4 documentation, start on page 8. Everything you need to know about CA Certicates with Anaplan Connect. Here's an example of an import:

Operation="-debug -service 'https://api.anaplan.com' -auth 'https://auth.anaplan.com' -workspace ${WorkspaceId}
-model ${ModelId} -chunksize 1 -file 'Employee Planning.csv' -put ${FilePath} -import 'Employee Planning from
Employee Planning.csv' -execute -output 'p2-dump/Employee Planning from Employee Planning.csv' "
#____________________________ Do not edit below this line ______________________________
Credentials="-certificate ${Certificate} -privatekey ${PrivateKey}:${Passphrase}"

Hi Jared , 

 

Thankyou for your kind advice . As per your Give Code snippet Can we Exclude 

 

-service 'https://api.anaplan.com' -auth 'https://auth.anaplan.com' from the Script ? Since my Client is not willing to whitelist mentioned both. 

 

Could you please advice me the work around in case we need to void( not willing to whitelist due to client security policy) these service and autho in Script for Import/Export.

 

I would be highly thankful to you , awaiting for your kind favor!

 

Warm Regards

We're definitely getting into territory that I have limited knowledge but here's a few ideas.

P.S. I really like @nathan_rudman idea to just convince security to whitelist the official Anaplan URL's. Maybe have a conversation with the Anaplan team, starting with your client's Anaplan business partner about security.

Hi @Shailendr @JaredDolich ,

 

Here is a resource that will help you with Ca certificate and anaplan connect scripts. I helped co author this guide. 

 

To answer your 2nd question about api.anaplan.com and auth.anaplan.com yes you will need to use these parameters to authenticate to establish a connection with Anaplan with a certificate.
