Allow ALM synchronisation to be scheduled

Allow ALM synchronisation to be scheduled

This enhancement idea originated from a customer conversation around the process of synchronising a development model to a production model using ALM.


There is sometimes a need to perform the syncronisation process outside of office hours to minimise/avoid any impact on end users.  Currently, the synchronisation process can only be executed manually from within Anaplan by a workspace admin and so this enhancement idea is to allow the synchronisation process to be scheduled to execute at a later point in time.


This could either be via new functionality in ALM or possibly by adding a new ALM synchronisation action type which could be created and then executed via Anaplan connect.


This would give customers the ability to schedule ALM synchronisations for out of office hours when required.

This is a feature that many of clients that use ALM would love to have.


As part of the recent platform updates the first set of ALM APIs have gone live, which include the ability to programmatically run an ALM Sync. You can view the API documentation here:

We are also evaluating whether we could expose ALM Sync as an Action that could be automated.
