The Anaplan Connect API Client provides a command-line interface that enables the Anaplan administrator to automate Anaplan imports, exports, and other actions. For example, you might have a batch file named RunMyImport.bat that loads
a text file, Europe.txt, onto the Anaplan server.
If you also use a scheduling tool, these actions can run at any time you choose without you having to log onto Anaplan or be present. For example, you can set the import job at run at 5.00 a.m. each Monday morning.
To run Anaplan Connect on a Windows computer, use a batch file (.bat). If the computer is running UNIX, Linux, or MacOS, use a shell script (.sh).
