List Item Count Reset Accessible via Anaplan Connect

List Item Count Reset Accessible via Anaplan Connect

 

Description:

The ability to trigger the “Reset” action/button in the list configuration tab (for numbered lists), using Anaplan Connect to automate this process.

 

Example of Enhancement: 

Anaplan Connect has an operation that enables reset of a list. And the index for a list can be reset without limitation (i.e. it doesn’t have to be in between 899,999,999 and 999,999,999 to enable a reset).

 

Benefit / Impact:

Our design requires exporting a record list from one model to another with great frequency to support reporting needs. This results in the numbered list IDs rapidly increasing, requiring frequent, unpredictable resets, otherwise this model-to-model data push fails.

 

Current Process:

  • We move data from a planning model to a reporting model in Anaplan, to get around size and performance limitations
  • We do it by pulling data from the planning model to the reporting model, specifically pulling data into a numbered list that contains one record per intersection of data
  • Each time we have to clear and re-load the entire list
  • The list has 10M items
  • We push data on an hourly basis to enable up-to-date reporting
  • The model administrator has to frequently log in and check the current index value to monitor whether we’re approaching the limit
  • Important: There exists unpredictability around when we can reset the index as the list item index of the selected list must be between 899,999,999 and 999,999,999.

Hi @Rebecca

 

Any word on this? We have 2 customers (big ones for Anaplan) who need this functionality, and it would help them avoid technical workarounds that would be time-consuming to build and maintain. This time could otherwise be allocated to expansion into new areas of the business and adding value that benefits end-users.

 

I can DM you with the client names if that helps with prioritization.

 

Thank you,

Kevin
