We are pleased to announce the upcoming release of Anaplan Connect 1.4.1 (AC 1.4.1). This is an upgraded version of Anaplan Connect 1.4 (AC 1.4) which was made generally available in October of 2018. Anaplan Connect 1.4.1 is available for download here.
Please note that AC 1.4.1 does not replace your existing Anaplan Connect installations. You can keep running existing Anaplan Connect installations and install Anaplan Connect 1.4.1 in parallel to a different directory.
We strongly encourage customers using older Anaplan Connect 1.3.x.x versions to move over to Anaplan Connect 1.4.1. Anaplan Connect versions 1.4 and upcoming 1.4.1 support Certificate Authority (CA) certificates in place of Anaplan Certificates. CA Certificates follow industry standards and are more secure as they include a Public key and Private key pair for authentication.
We have provided Anaplan integration users with updated Anaplan Certificates in Q4 of 2018 to provide more time to procure CA Certificates and transition to Anapan Connect 1.4. The updated Anaplan Certificates will expire in 2019, and Anaplan has no plans to provide further updated certificates. Customers must either transition to CA Certificates or switch to Basic Authentication if they choose to continue with older Anaplan Connect 1.3.x.x installations.
We strongly recommend transitioning to Anaplan Connect 1.4 or Anaplan Connect 1.4.1 as soon as possible to avoid integrations issues towards the end of this year. Refer to these blog posts from last year for more information:
