Getting an error when trying to run an Import Action using Python3

Hi,

I’m new to Anaplan and am trying to automate the process of refreshing data from a file that has been previously uploaded and imported to a module.

I’m referring to the Apiary and this github repo  https://github.com/cdhippen/Anaplan-Python3-Scripts/blob/master/Action%20scripts/action.py

I’ve created a certificate file and am able to connect to Anaplan and do things like getting a list of all workspaces, models, files, actions, etc. However, I get an error (404) when I try to run the action of importing a file. Following is the code snippet:

url = (f'https://api.anaplan.com/1/3/workspaces/{wGuid}/models/{mGuid}/' +

       f'actions/{file_id}/tasks')

print(url)

action = requests.post(url, data='{"localeName": "en_US"}', headers=postHeaders)

 

print('Action status code: ' + str(action.status_code))

with open('postAction.json', 'wb') as f:

    f.write(action.text.encode('utf-8'))

 

Following is the response returned b yAnaplan:

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

Re: Getting an error when trying to run an Import Action using Python3

If you're running an import the correct endpoint to use is

/1/3/workspaces/{workspaceId}/models/{modelId}/imports/{importId}/tasks

. You need to substitute your workspace Id, model Id and import Id for {workspaceId}, {modelId} and {importId} respectively. You can get the Ids by querying the API (eg /1/3/workspaces, .../models, .../imports).
