Schedule "Copy & Archive" - Backup Model

Schedule "Copy & Archive" - Backup Model

As a customer, we would like to schedule "Copy & Archive" action to records Back-up of models. Preferably with a direct and easy way : for example in the manage model menu.


This is relevant for customers with more than 5 models to improve security and avoid manual actions (Manuel Copy & Archive). The Archive Name could have the timestamp.


There seem to be several other posts with a similar request going back over a year....some Under Investigation and some still Needing Community support.  Seems like this is widely desired - can these items be linked to show the Community requests and support is there and push forward to implement a solution?

It would be very useful especially there is not a work-around (at least to my knowledge) to schedule this using "REST API"  or Anaplan connect scripts.

This is very similar to


Please kudo both so it gets the proper support. 


To Community admins - can we consolidate these enhancements?

We need to automate the "Admin" tasks and "copy and archive" is one of the task we would like to automate . 

Community Manager

This would be very beneficial and would cut down on manual tasks we have to do as our platform continues to expand! I would add that any automated backup/archive should be produced with a consistent naming convention and date/timestamp. One example may look like "ABAK [10 char. name of workspace]-[10 char. name of model]-[date/time]".


This functionality would be a great addition. Hopefully this can be added to the roadmap as soon as possible.

We have the same requirement and this could simply be scheduled avoiding manual repetitive activities

Exactly, a solution where the model automatically gets Copied and Archieved every day/ week/ month or as per users need, will be highliy appreciated. 🙂
