HI Rjella,

 

Yes, you have to download Anaplan Connect (API) in your AWS server.

Just go through the pre-requesties and installation guide - https://help.anaplan.com/anapedia/Content/Downloads/DL_Downloads.html?_ga=2.93860510.2032025974.1549...

- https://community.anaplan.com/t5/Academy-Classes/Anaplan-Connect/ta-p/27281

 

Once it is installed in your server, you can write batch sripts/Shell scripts to do import or export from Anaplan to your server.

 

Hope this would be helpful for you!.

 

Thanks

Kavin

Re: How to integrate Anaplan to AWS

Hi;

 

Just to confirm, is it possible to import data directly from AWS into an Anaplan model using JDBC?

 

Thanks

Directly? Would love to know, how. Am I not updated or is it something that is quite new

@Misbah ,

 

It should just be an URL.  This week, I was helping a buddy out and in the properties file, you just needed to set the url of where it was going.

 

Properties file:

# JDBC Connection string (Oracle, Mysql, H2, etc.)
jdbc.connect.url=jdbc:sap://dbsfa.abc.com:30041/sfb

#abc was the company

# JDBC login username
jdbc.username=saphanadb

#JDBC login password
jdbc.password=dbpassword for saphanadb

 

 

Also, take a look at this:  https://docs.aws.amazon.com/redshift/latest/mgmt/configure-jdbc-connection.html#obtain-jdbc-url

Awesome! Is there any documentation available on such cases - Step by Step guide walkthrough, how can this be done? When we are saying direct, does this mean that we don't need to download Anaplan connect on AWS Server and we don't need batch/shell scripts. All we need to do is update the Properties file - right?

 

Can the same approach be used for any other system using JDBC.

@Misbah ,

 

No, you will still need to use Anaplan Connect which will have the import or export action.  The only documentation I used was the release notes, I believe there is some information in there about JDBC.

Re: How to integrate Anaplan to AWS

Hi @rjella,

 

Anaplan itself doesn't have any API for pushing data to another platform. As @kavinkumar noted, you can install Anaplan Connect on AWS to run scripts that extract data from your model(s) to store on AWS. Alternatively, there are a number of ETL tools with connectors to AWS and Anaplan (as well as a number of other sources). Using this method would save you having another set of scripts to maintain, if you're already using Anaplan Connect, in addition to the other benefits afforded by ETL tools.

 

Thanks,
Jesse
