It would be nice to be able sending custom return codes/messages to the API / Anaplan Connect. This will help us in be more proactively in case of errors.
Think about a validation dashboard, which check data consistency. It could be that after a new data feed some functional data errors are flagged up at this dashboard (e.g. missing mappings). In stead of going into the dashboard manually, it would be nice that if an error occurs we are warned directly via an API failure.
As a current work around we are importing an error text into a list formatted line item. As this gives a technical failure of that import action it can be grepped by the Anaplan Connect script and a mail is send to our Anaplan CoE team.
