Triggering Scripts or Rest API calls from within Anaplan

Hi,

 

I want the ability to trigger scripts or REST api calls from within Anaplan.

 

For an example, say I have a file watcher on a network share drive location. If files are added or updated in this directory something should happen to them. 

 

In this case I want the files to be uploaded and imported into an Anaplan model. I'd like to setup an action or process so this can be all automated. I don't want users to have to login to an Anaplan model to run the process, nor do I want them to have to run anything externally. Essentially, all I want them to do is put a file in a directory once it's been updated and let Anaplan and automation take care of the rest.

 

Is there a way to do this?

Hi,

 

Anaplan needs to be "pushed", you'll have to set up a file watcher on a computer and have it check for new files on relatively short intervals. Then you could use that to trigger an action via anaplan connect. 

 

But it's not natively available.

 

All the best,

Maarten.
