Forecast Actions do not import results due to incorrect import headers

This item has been identified as an outstanding known issue. A workaround is provided until the issue is officially fixed.

Issue

The issue happens with Forecast Actions in PlanIQ executing successfully, but not importing any new data in Anaplan. Users will run Forecast Actions, the UI will return a success, but no data is imported. This occurs when the import action for the Forecast Action results has been set-up with a while whose headers are not exactly the same as what is expected by PlanIQ.

Workaround
To workaround this issue, the import filed used to create the import of Forecast Actions results must have exactly the following headers, all in lowercase:
- timestamp (mapped to your time dimension)
- item_id (mapped to the list forecasting for)
- P1
- P2
- P3
- forecast_action (only if applicable, mapped to the forecast runs dimension)

If this workaround is not suitable in your use case, please contact Support at support@anaplan.com.
