Anaplan Connect can import a file without actions available in settings?

Hello,

 

If we have a data file that wanted to import into a new created module (with dimensions but without any data imported), is that possible to use Anaplan Connect to import that data?

 

I understand that since there is no Imports Actions available in Settings, whenever a new module is created. First, I have to manually import the data into that module first, in order to create an Imports Action. Then, I can use the Anaplan Connect to import the data with '-import' argument since the Imports Action for that module created by the first step.

 

I wonder if there is any other easier way to use Anaplan connect to import/export a file for a module that without having to manually import/export the file for that module first? Or is that possible just create a new action for the Imports/Exports in Settings tab (I could not find anything in the documentation..)

 

Thanks alot!

Hi,

 

Anaplan Connect works based on the specific Import/Export listed under Actions. So, it is not possible to use Anaplan Connect without uploading a file manually.

 

Also one cannot create the same from Settings.

Hi Sheethal, 

 

Thanks for your response. Yeah, the behavior matches what I have played with Anaplan Connect...

 

I wonder if you could take a look at my another related question for the functionalities regarding to the Anaplan API at: https://community.anaplan.com/t5/Data-Integrations/Anaplan-API-upload-import-export-files-workaround...

 

Thanks for your time and help!
